Primer 10: This World with Devils Filled

Primer issue 10 tackles the devil, demons, and spiritual warfare with help from Lewis Allen, Kirsten Birkett, Keith Ferdinando, David Shaw, Helen Thorne, and something old from Thomas Brooks.


Primer was published by FIEC twice a year from 2015 to 2021, with issues 10 to 12 being a partnership between FIEC and Oak Hill College. Designed to help those in church leadership stay theologically sharp and engaged, each issue focuses on one area of theology, surveying current debates alongside historical perspectives.

Though originally only available in print, this issue of Primer is now available as a free PDF download.
