Title
Dealing With Murky Monsters and Dastardly Demons- A Response to Underwager and Wakefield
Abstract

The author responds to Underwager and Wakefield (1992) with a critique of what he regards as their cavalier and counterproductive approach to the nature and extent of Satanic influence on either persons or society today. With Underwager and Wakefield, the author doubts the existence of a widespread satanic conspiracy and urges guarding against a "€œdevil behind every bush"€ syndrome. He appeals instead to a New Testament-rooted theological understanding which locates the source of evil in the reality of three interrelated forces, i.e., "€œthe world, the flesh, and the devil."€ His solution for the reality of the existence and hostile activity of satanic forces is that of a dynamic personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
