Audio Sample:

If you are like most thoughtful adults, you probably don’t talk much about angels, demons, or the devil.  But you no doubt have questions.

For millennia people have wondered about these mysterious beings who feature prominently in scripture, art and literature.  Finally, Professor Richard Woods provides a fascinating, mature, and insightful exploration of the theology and experience of the superstition.  You will find his information-rich lectures captivating and enlightening.

What are angels and demons? Do they really exist? What, or who, is the devil? Why does he have so many names — Satan, Lucifer, Beelzebub and so on? Do Christians have to believe in angels and the devil? How much of it is considered to be divine revelation? How many people in fact believe in angels and demons?

Do Christians have to believe in angels and the devil? How much of it is considered to be divine revelation? How many people in fact believe in angels and demons?

Can people have real experiences of angels and demons? And, perhaps most urgently for people who tend to stay awake at night wondering about such things, how could an all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-loving God allow things to go so wrong in the first place? What possible role does all this have in our understanding of God, Creation, and Redemption?

You are invited to explore fascinating topic of great religious, theological, and spiritual significance.

Fr. Richard Woods, O.P., Ph.D., S.T.M. is currently professor of theology at Dominican University in River Forest, IL, where he was honored with the role of Lund-Gill Chair in 2010. Other highlights of his teaching career include his professorship at Oxford University’s Blackfriars Hall and his reception of the Aquinas Scholar title from the Aquinas Center of Theology at Emory University.
Having published 13 books and over 100 articles, Fr. Woods’ prolific writing has spanned topics from medieval mysticism to contemporary spirituality; and his penchant for story-telling has led him to publish fictional literature, as well. The religious imagination of the Celts has informed several of his fictional and non-fictional works alike. Often, his writing has come to life in the Irish countryside itself, in the 150-year-old cottage called Dragonthorn that serves as a place of retreat for Fr. Woods.
