John Warwick Montgomery (born October 18, 1931) is a noted lawyer, professor, Lutheran theologian, and prolific author living in France.

Now some 33 years later it remains the best treatise on the subjects of demonology and the occult from the perspective. This is not the usual treatment on occultism we have all come to expect from evangelical circles. Mr. Montgomery doesn't see a demon around every corner waiting to attack their next unsuspecting victim.

John Warwick Montgomery is a very informed scholar whom I've always appreciated. But I think that he fell into the trap of accepting too much of satan's lies when wrote this book. There is a lot of interesting facts about the occult and history of folklore in this book which he takes seriously but maybe too seriously. However, I won't blame him too much for this fault, because having had an experience like that which he discusses at the end of his book I'm aware of how experiencing such outlandish phenomena can overwhelm one into believing almost anything.

This book sits on my shelf without any problems. It looks nice and makes me look smart.

This is an awesome book on the Occult from a Christian perspective. Montgomery does not demonize everything nor does he discount the demonic realm. This work was highly influential on my own work in The Supernatural Worldview. - Cris Putnam

This is the best mature Evangelical treatment on the subject. Conservative evangelicalism faces a schizophrenia on this topic. On one hand, they know that the demonic and occultic exist because the Bible says so and modern experience is becoming almost overwhelming. On the other hand, they tend to write this off as charismatic kookiness and with the view that spiritual gifts have ceased today, they really don't know what to make of this indisputable phenomenon.

Montgomery approaches with a relatively open mind. He resists the urge to write off all of the paranormal as demonic. He introduces a key distinction: we must separate the fact from the interpretation of that fact. He also points out where individuals find themselves with ESP-like abilities in situations that are neither angelic nor demonic.

He does move his analysis into the occult, however. He gives a brilliant summary of the history of occultism and Cabalism. He has a fascinating analysis of how to interpret "ghosts" (for lack of a better word). All the while he remains faithful to biblical revelation on the afterlife.

He ends with a humorous, if quite interesting, fictional short story of a liberal minister who is convinced of the demonic.

John Warwick Montgomery's 'Principalities and Powers' was released by Bethany Fellowship in '73 in a hardcover edition. Now some 33 years later it remains the best treatise on the subjects of demonology and the occult from the Christian/Protestant perspective.

This is not the usual treatment on occultism we have all come to expect from evangelical circles. Mr. Montgomery doesn't see a demon around every corner waiting to attack their next unsuspecting victim. He is one of the true scholars of the Christian faith and his examination of the subject matter displays the great depth, insight and clarity he's famous for.

Johns' open-minded treatment of occult taboos is surprisingly daring, particularly for '73. There's no broad brushing the subject matter as demonic and unfit for exploration. Everything is not black or white, he acknowledges the existence of gray areas and gradations of danger. Surprising Mr. Montgomery appears quite fond of the Tarot and has a personal collection of antique decks. Wonders never cease.

'Principalities and Powers' is truly a refreshing and scholarly read by one the greatest Christian thinkers of the 20th century. My Highest Recommendation!!

Astute as a researcher, writer and theologian, Montgomery here tackles the hot topic of demonology. A passage from his intro says something excellent about this topic and book: "If you are as the felicitours phrase puts it so narrow-minded that you can see through a keyhole with both eyes simultaneously, this book is not for you, for in the world of the occult you need stereoscopic vision to avoid being a blind man leading the blind. The closeminded occultist will boggle at the theology of this volume and the close-minded religionist will be offended by its recognition of legitimate and positive occult domains."
