In our materialistic and sceptical age many people find it difficult to take seriously the concept of spiritual beings. However, countless others - from the ancient founders of religions to those contemporaries who have had near-death experiences - have confirmed the reality of such entities from direct personal experience. These individuals have spoken of beings of Light - angels and archangels - and spirits of darkness - evil beings.
From his spiritual perception Rudolf Steiner described the various forces of evil in our time, as well as their principal opponent, the Archangel Michael. Basing his work on Steiner's teachings, Nesfield-Cookson presents a panorama of forces of good and evil, locked in an epic battle of cosmic dimensions in which we are all involved. He clarifies the pivotal role of the Archangel Michael, the 'Guardian of Cosmic Intelligence', who fights to hold the balance between the key powers of evil in our time - Lucifer and Ahriman - and describes other members of the evil hierarchies, the Sun Demon and the Asuras. He also discusses the biblical Apocalypse of St John, the Mexican Mysteries, the Knights Templar, the Eighth sphere, the human 'Double', and Ahriman's pending physical incarnation on earth.
This book is an essential guide to meeting the challenge of evil at the new millennium, whilst strengthening the forces of Light.
