In this powerful book, the renowned exorcist of Rome tells of his many experiences in his ministry as an exorcist doing battle with Satan to relieve the great suffering of people in the grip of evil. The importance of the ministry to expel demons is clearly seen in the Gospels, from the actions of the Apostles, and from Church history. Fr. Amorth allows the reader to witness the activities of the exorcist, to experience what an exorcist sees and does. He also reveals how little modern science, psychology, and medicine can do to help those under Satan's influence, and that only the power of Christ can release them from this kind of mental, spiritual or physical suffering. An Exorcist Tells His Story has been a European best-seller that has gone through numerous printings and editions. No other book today so thoroughly and concisely discusses the topic of exorcism.
The misleading title aside, this book was very interesting and well written. Gabriele Amorth, is the head exorcist for Rome, he was the student of Candido Amantini probably the most well known Catholic Exorcist of recent times. Mr. Armorth has performed thousands of exorcism as well as general deliverance ministry.
The book is an explanation of where demonology is today by looking at the past and his own present experiences. The book is meant to be a kind of guide. He is giving information not only for those people that are just unaware of this side of the Catholic Church, but also giving advice for those thinking of entering the exorcising ministry.
I found this book to be very informative of the perspective of the Catholic church, giving the historical as well as experiential information. I found it to be a quick read, this is in part because the book is only 200 pages in length and they are not large pages of text. I also found this book to be well written and full of useful information.
