A Theology of the Dark Side

Nigel G Wright

A Theology of the Dark Side

Nigel G Wright

$16.99

Paperback
"The underlying issues about the nature of evil . . . are perennial and those who are believers in the God of Jesus Christ need to be well armed both intellectually and spiritually to address them . . . this book is about how we are to think about evil, and by derivation how we are not to think."

Nigel Wright tries to steer a course between overestimating and underestimating the power of evil in its many manifestations. What is evil? How ought we to think of it? How should we not think of it? How should we engage it?

A Theology of the Dark Side stresses that the church militant of Jesus Christ must strive to combat evil on earth and so hasten the coming of the kingdom of God and the defeat of the power of darkness. Detailed discussions of the nature of evil and the forms it takes are followed by careful and thorough examinations of the activity of evil and suggestions as to how, through the crucified, risen and exalted Christ, the war against the power of the dark side may finally be won.

A revising and updating of The Fair Face of Evil: Putting the Power of Darkness in its Place, A Theology of the Dark Side is a thorough scholarly exploration and analysis of the power of darkness that will stimulate the corporate thinking of the church of God as regards evil.


- Publisher Nigel G. Wright is the Principal of Spurgeons College, London and President of the Baptist Union of Great Britain. He is also the author of Disavowing Constantine and New Baptists, New Agenda.
