Powers, Principalities, and the Spirit: Biblical Realism in Africa and the West

2018, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co; from their website:

Among the many factors that separate churches in the West from those of the global South, there may be no greater difference than their respective attitudes toward supernatural “powers and principalities.” In this follow-up to her book For Freedom or Bondage? African theologian Esther Acolatse bridges the enormous hermeneutical gap not only between the West and global Christianity but also between the West and its own biblical-theological heritage.
