Interview with an Exorcist: An Insider's Look at the In today s culture of scientific enlightenment, many consider belief in demonic possession and exorcism to be superstitious remnants of the Dark Ages Even many Christians, contrary to the clear words of Jesus in the Gospel, scoff at the notion that the Devil and demons really exist Is demonic possession real Are believers really in any danger from Satan and his crafty minions What is the truth about exorcism Written by one of the Church s foremost experts on the topic, Interview with an Exorcist is based on Fr Jos Antonio Fortea s years of work as an exorcist, his extensive investigations of cases of suspected possessions, and his attendance at hundreds of exorcismsThe author describes the nature of the work in the Introduction I have chosen to write this book in a style based loosely on that of an ancient scholastic tract that is to say, a work composed of a series of questions of similar length and different theological weight while at the same time reading like a modern interview

    2.8 StarsThis was interesting and kept me flipping the pages There were some clever moments where the author recounted a real story to aid his explanation However, my biggest issue with this book is that there were some instances where I found that the theology did not ring completely right I can t remember precisely what they were, but it wasn t a downright heres

    This book very interesting to me I knew so much things about demons and I am very happy to have book It gave me great knowledge It is hard to find books about demons or angels in Lithuania, but I found this translated and bought it It was worth reading.

    Veracity or belief aside, I thought this was a very effective book The format of it made it easy to understand There were some minor places where I felt the author contradicted himself, but by and large I thought this was a great introduction to demonology as it is believed by the Catholic Church.

    How many angels can dance on the head of a pin that is the feel of this whole book.Stuff like Even though both God and the devil are spiritual beings and spiritual beings, due to their very nature, generally like to communicate among themselves , true conversations between them do not take place This is because the devil has no interest in conversing with God, whom h

    I actually picked up this book after a fairly interesting discussion concerning exorcism in one of my classes The range of opinions regard possession and exorcism in my class ranged from those who all suspected it was bunk to those who wanted to buy the whole Exorcist movie lock, stock, and barrel I tend to fall somewhere in the middle I do believe in demon possession

    What I expected A book of personal experienced that illuminated the role of demons and exorcism in real life.What I got Dry, preachy, catholic propaganda in a Frequently Asked Questions form.

    Having previously read Svmma Daemoniaca by the same author, I found this book very underwhelming in comparison It is basically a very condensed version of that book, padded instead with theological discussion about the nature of evil and demons.Right off the bat the author lets readers know he won t be providing any footnotes or references because that s for academics and

    Very informative.Book is written in a question and answer format In my opinion, the second half of the book wasinteresting With the State of the Church now, confessing to a priest who may have done horrific things himself, does not motivate me I pray confess directly to God.Always went to Catholic schools, have two Aunts that are Nuns, but, do my own research.
