We live in a troubling, but also exciting age. As the future unfolds, it’s clear that Christians must be informed and actively working and praying for believers everywhere to realize their strong identity in Christ, for that will be a crucial element in times of persecution. As Dr. Phinney says in This Preeminent Darkness: 30+ Cultural Movements Rising Against Christianity, “Passivity is the greatest enemy of the gospel!”

it comes to the dark side. The term has Latin roots

and derives from ‘minere,’ which means

“paramount” or “mountain.” Today it is used

to depict a person of unquestionable rank

or supremacy. Meaning no one can rise above

their control. Thus, preeminence is the

supreme force that dominates a culture.


While it is not a shocking surprise, This Preeminent Darkness has captured the attention of the annual Christian Author Awards. In partnership with Xulon Press, Lulu Press, and our ministry, we approved a submission to the nationwide contest.

Before writing this book, I requested of the Lord to inspire me to write a book that would reach the masses regarding the modern movements that rise against authentic Christianity. This Preeminent Darkness became that book.

In an age where Christianity is anything you make it; my goal is to bring the reader back to the basic doctrines of the Word of God.

With my compelling research of Christ, Culture & Creator, I deliver a theologically sound analysis of each up-to-date movement that rises against the Holy Word of God.

In this comprehensive book, my associate and friend, Dr. Stephen Phinney, addresses a variety of issues that call believers to discernment and faithfulness. In an age of resistance to absolute truth, the church needs those with a prophet gifting (Romans 12:6) to take a courageous stand. Being salt in days of moral corruption and light in days of doctrinal darkness requires the commitment spoken of in the epistle of Jude, "to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints" (v. 3). These signs of the times challenge us to be more salty and luminous as we speak the truth in love. -D
