The book purports that throughout history, three princes have exercised authority over the earth. The three princes—Adam, Satan, and Jesus Christ—are discussed in detail in The Three Princes: Lifting the Veil on the Unseen World by missionary statesman Tom Julien. The book will be featured on Saturday, July 23 at the BMH corporation meeting in Wooster, Ohio, and author Julien will be speaking that night about the book and will be available for autographs.
Skillfully combining scriptural teaching with his own experience as a cross-cultural missionary leader, Julien portrays the short rule of the first prince, Adam, and then graphically unfolds how Satan, as the second prince, stole Adam’s authority but ultimately is defeated through the triumph of the third prince, Jesus Christ, who became a man in order to win back what the first man had lost.
Dr.Jerry Rankin, formerly the head of international missions for the Southern Baptist Convention, says, “The Bible is prolific in alerting us to be vigilant regarding our adversary, the devil…in this book the reader will find a comprehensive panorama of this biblical conflict and discover that the victory over our subtle and devious enemy has been procured by the Lamb of God.”
Dr. Timothy Warner, former president of Fort Wayne Bible College and professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, says, “Tom Julien has done the church a great service . . . in a very readable, balanced manner, Julien provides the needed spiritual-conflict dimension to the worldview that is essential for the understanding of both the Old and the New Testaments.”
The author, Tom Julien, is a graduate of Bob Jones University and Grace Theological Seminary. With his late wife, Doris, he served as a missionary in France for 28 years, during which time the Juliens began the ministry of Chateau of Saint Albain, which has become a center for evangelism, training, and church planting. From 1986-2000 Julien was Executive Director of Grace Brethren International Missions in Winona Lake, Indiana. He is currently involved in leadership training, including serving on the staff of his local church. He is the author of a number of books, including the highly-acclaimed missions book, Antioch Revisited, also published by BMH Books.
