I could think of nothing better than to be a certified “demonologist” and be able to print up business cards and hand them out at parties. Since I don’t have that option, having this book on my shelf seems like the next best thing, even if it does annoy my girlfriend a bit whenever I carry it around in public. Unger has an encyclopedic knowledge of Bible verses and teachings, but he falls woefully short of being convincing anytime he tries to use non-Biblical sources to argue for the existence of demons.
The writing is professional but extremely dry, and I found myself nodding off in more than a few places.
Mar 01, J. Camorlinga rated it really liked it Shelves: Merrill Unger writes this book on the biblical perspective of demons. The theology of this text is very good and Unger covers the topic very thoroughly.
You have to remember that the author was born intherefore his language is sometimes dated but I actually love that about this book. Where else can you read a sentence like, ” Biblical Demonology is where! If I had any reservations it would be that in my opinion, Unger tends t Merrill Unger writes this book on the biblical perspective of demons. If I had any reservations it would be that in my opinion, Unger tends to give more credit to demonic influence than is strictly likely.
I do not feel strongly on that however since he could very well be right! I would recommend this book for any people interested in demonology, it is a great addition to my library and it would be to yours as well. I would just leave you with one parting comment from C. Lewis; “There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils.
One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them.

They themselves are equally pleased by both errors and hail a materialist or a magician with the same delight. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters The standard text when it comes to Biblical Demonology, Merrill F. Unger has written the classic exhaustive study of demons as understood exegetically through the Scriptures.
What’s more, Unger offers the various views that a Christian can hold regarding demons and their nature.

What excited me was Unger’s command of the Scripture, and ability to understand that the evidence does not lead a Christian to believe that demons are merely “fallen angels” as most the world suggests, but rather, the disembodied spirits of the antediluvian Nephilim and their offspring.
Although he leaves the question open for the reader, he does a great job with this systematic study on the topic. I recommend this book to anyone looking for information on demonology, and have been abundantly blessed by this work. I was recommended this by Chuck Missler a few years ago when he briefly touched on the topic, and have been grateful to pick this up and carefully read through it.

Jul 24, Thomas rated it it was amazing. This Book titled “Biblical Demonology” by Dr. Both the above mentioned authors are experts in the field of Biblical Demonology; they both understand well the Scriptures and are sound in their teachings.
Only the Bible has the true answers to man’s problems – demon possession or to be demonized is definitely a problem that no one can solve without the Almighty Power of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. True freedom from demonic and Satanic oppression is only available through the power of God, our Lord Jesus Christ. I whole heartedly recommend both the above books for anyone and everyone who wants to understand the subject. There are of course many other books published by good Christian publishers, but the above mentioned authors I believe are the best and most authoritative to read.
And therefore because the above mentioned authors rely so very completely on the Word of God, I believe they have arrived at the truth of the subject. One other book by Dr.
Unger “Demons in the World Today” is also very good; besides the one he wrote entitled “What Demons can do to saints”. I could also recommend the following good sound Christian books – 1.
Donald Grey Barnhouse 2. Not all will perhaps agree with the above listed authors and their conclusions. But they each are solidly ‘evangelical’ in their approach to the Word of God and therefore definitely worth reading. Finally, above all, read – meditate – live by – the Word of God The Bible. And now a word to those who are not believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Demonology is definitely not a subject to be ‘dabbled’ in; no, not out of curiosity. If you dear reader are having troubles with Satanic ‘forces’ you need to come to the Lord Jesus Christ who alone can deliver you. However, if you are not a ‘Christian’ – and by Christian I mean you not are one who has committed your life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, you have not owned Him alone as your Lord and Saviour – you are not yet ‘born’ from above; you are not born of God into His family – you need firstly and most importantly to believe on Him.
You have to first settle the ‘sin’ question in your life, before you can experience deliverance from the Devil. And such who are children of God, they keep themselves in the Love of God and by God’s grace and power alone, the Evil one does not ‘touch’ such as these. May you all find true love, joy and peace in our Lord Jesus Christ Dec 15, Pat rated it it was amazing Shelves: Impressive how wonderful a command Unger has of the Bible.
He explains a lot of events in the Bible, in their order, in a clear way. So much scripture is in different books, rather than having it all in one volume of the Bible. This took all the info, put it in chronological order, and made it easier to understand just what happened in the Bible and it’s significance.
Feb 01, Tom rated it liked it Shelves: For the parts that analyzed scripture passages and attempted to put them in their context, this was a very good book. Also helpful were the sections where he wrote of non-Christian views of demons and magic. As an evangelical, Unger stayed true to scripture and didn’t apologize or soft-peddle the existence of demons. Where he was weak is where his obvious dispensationalism kicked in with the incorrect view that Satan is the prince if this world now and won’t meet his demise until the 2nd coming.
There were many more good parts than there were bad. Oct 25, Lynne rated it really liked it Shelves: There’s a lot of information out there about demons – who and what they are, what they do or can do, and so on. Unfortunately, almost all of it has absolutely no foundation in biblical truth, and is simply re-invented from various pagan myths or just plain made up from someone’s “visions” or profit-inclination.
This book does a pretty decent job of illuminating just what the Bible says about demons. Mar 22, Karla Goforth Abreu added it.
