Description

Following up his international best-selling book, An Exorcist Tells His Story, Fr. Gabriele Amorth, the renowned chief exorcist of Rome, expands on some of the key topics of his previous book, covering important details about demonic or occult issues. He uses concrete examples from his own experiences and those of other exorcists to illustrate and substantiate his points. Since satanic sects, occultism, sTances, fortune-tellers and astrologers are so widespread today, Father Amorth asks the question why is it so difficult today to find an exorcist, or a priest who is an expert in this field? The example and the teaching of Christ is very clear, as is the tradition of the Church. But today's Catholics are often misinformed. Exorcisms are reserved for appointed priests, while all believers can make prayers of liberation. What is the difference? What norms must be followed? What problems are still open and unresolved in this field? The new book by Father Amorth answers these and many other questions, supporting his discourse with a rich exposition of recent facts.

This book follows Amorth's first book, "An Exorcist Tells His Story," and it follows in the same pattern. Each chapter progresses on one topic where he explains what it is and ends with several of his stories of where this knowledge applies. This approach does not lend itself well to reference his material and makes it hard to find something you read on short notice. However, if you read the book, this approach is very practical and almost makes you feel as if you are working directly underneath Amorth. I for the most part enjoyed this book, just as I enjoyed his first book. I have read plenty of guides and "how-to" books, but I love the approach and the connection of the material with the stories approach that Amorth takes. I would say that if this (or his first work) is something that you are considering reading, I would suggest reading a guide before hand. I would do this for many reason but above all, Amorth is going to differ from many of these books and he will bring up discussions about what they are saying and giving examples, it is important to know what he is referring to in order to evaluate his speech. The only true problem I had with this book was that Amorth was unapologetically Catholic, which I am not, which meant that I disagreed in many cases. This being said I can say that this book was well written and designed.… (more)
