“Evil exists and it can take bodily form by possession. Read this with trepidation and a good deal of fear, for the devil exists and he seeks those he can ensnare. JD”James Dixey wrote this review Monday, April 8, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“What a phenomenal book! It has made me question my beleifs and attitudes. I could not put this book down, kept me hooked until the very last page. The book has given me many questions to ask about myself and religion. Very intense and explicit in parts and I recommend anyone read this book!v”Hazel Anne wrote this review Monday, August 6, 2012.

“This is definately a serious book. I bought this book after hearing about it on a talk show. Little did I know that it was very important to take the author's advice about how to receive and intertpret this book. DO NOT READ THIS BOOK IF YOU ARE SPIRITUALLY WEAK, LACK DISCERNMENT OR DON'T PRAY. DO NOT READ THIS BOOK LATE AT NIGHT. DO NOT READ THIS BOOK WITHOUT PREPARING YOURSELF SPIRITUALLY. You will feel different spiritually during and after reading this book. I gave this advice to others whom I suggested this book and they made the same comments to me that I am saying now. This is not like other books. You will definately gain an insight into spiritual warfare and the reality of spiritual warfare after reading this book.”Benjamin Reynolds wrote this review Thursday, August 2, 2012.

The existence and activities of Satan are integral elements in ... Christianity
Not to believe in evil, is not to be armed against it
Every exorcist learns durring the pretense that he is dealing with some force or power tha is at times intensley cunning, sometimes suprememly intilligent, and at other times capable of crass stupidity
Dependence of "familiars" on higher demons
E: How did you gain entry into him?
D: He wanted it. Those who taught him otherwise we corrupted. But he chose to be entered.
Evil spirits do not always know everything, they do not necessarily know accurately even what they already poccess
Rational argument is not used to clarify but as a trap to foster confusion
"You do not belong to the kingdom. yet you are protected."
-Marianne (to Peter)
"Your great danger, David, is that you think too much. Too much of the old cerebellum in you. Listen to your heart. the Lord speaks to the heart"
-Father G. (to David)
"Those who want to be fixed like girls. Anyone. We fix em."
(Demon who calls himself "girlfixer" response to their role)
"all are under one. Some are so near the daring one they have intillegence only the high enemy can match"
Father Mark- 1/1000 purported cases are true poccession
He was open and sensitive to the slightest trace of diabolism, while higly skeptical of all calims of diabolical attention
4 cardinal symptoms
1. Physical distrubances
2. Violent reactions to Crucifix
3. Violent reactions to Name of Jesus
4. Violent reactions to Holy Water
No one wants to believe in evil, really... to admit the existence of evil means a responsibility and no one wants that responsibility
The process of poccession in any individual consists of an erosion of the humanness Jesus confers
Christianity would be unintilligible if we were to omit or deny belief in that world of evil spirits
We're bound by laws of nature (i.e. gravity)... but they (demons) appear to be bound by other laws of nature
Rather than being signs of teh great power of preternatural spirts, these threats are evidence of their limitations
It is by your strength that Satan will tempt you (paraphrase)
Sent his son into the world in order he might crush this roaring lion
“This was a tough book to get through. i would not recommend it to anyone. All i gathered from the cases he discussed was in his eyes all Catholics who doubt, or completely turn away from their faith, are possessed or in the process of being possessed by a demon or demons and in need of an exorcism.”Daniel N wrote this review Monday, March 19, 2012.
