about this book

The Powers That Be reclaims the divine realm as central to human existence by offering new ways of understanding the world in theological terms. Walter Wink reformulates ancient concepts, such as God and the devil, heaven and hell, angels and demons, principalities and powers, in light of our modern experience. He helps readers see heaven and hell, sin and salvation, and the powers that shape their lives as tangible parts of their day-to-day experience, rather than as mysterious phantoms. Based on his reading of the Bible and analysis of the world around him, Wink creates a whole new language for talking about and to God.
