"Exorcist Msgr. Stephen Rossetti has a very active caseload of demonic possessions, and in each case two vivid lessons consistently emerge: demons possess or harass people in a myriad of ways (even when they do not enter a body), and they are defeated decisively by the power of Christ and His Church―and especially by invocations to the Blessed Mother." - Amazon
"Since the beginning of time, a fierce spiritual battle has raged between the forces of good and evil. Today the spiritual entities of wickedness are winning, burdening countless souls in a world lacerated by evil. To claim victory, God is calling us to engage in spiritual warfare as the only way to save the world from the desolation that is sure to come." - Amazon
MARK ALLEN QUAY
"A Minister's Manual for Spiritual Warfare is written to assist pastors and other ministers help their parishioners find freedom from demonic oppression. It is based upon years of experience and research and was written in consultation with orthodox, highly credentialed theologians, biblical scholars, clinicians, and attorneys. It is written from an evangelical Anglican perspective, but it will also be useful for other traditions.The manual describes various kinds of demonic attacks and discusses the reasons to involve medical and mental health professionals. Providing practical guidance for the deliverance ministry, it includes diagnostic procedures, insight into the makeup and training of a ministry team, the appropriate use of liturgies, pastoral care for victims and deliverance ministers, and legal considerations. The book devotes special attention to exorcisms, emphasizing the importance of a teamwork approach and the necessity of thorough preparedness, including an awareness of different strategies which demons may use to thwart exorcists. Rounding out the manual is a series of accessible, biblical, step-by-step instructions to assist ministers in helping others find freedom in Christ from demonic attacks. A Minister's Manual for Spiritual Warfare is a must-have for any Christian minister involved in deliverance ministry." - Amazon
"A classic work on the subject of demons and the spirit world, Biblical Demonology explores the scriptural teaching on satanic forces in a systematic fashion. After a thorough introduction on the origin of biblical demonology and a discussion on the reality and identity of demons, Merrill F. Unger tackles several specific practices of demonology, including demon possession, magic, divination, and deliverance from demonic oppression. Recognized as one of the twentieth century's most influential evangelical Bible scholars, Unger provides a study of the invisible spiritual forces behind the scenes of contemporary history that is scholarly yet accessible to both Christian leaders and Christian readers." - Amazon
"Do you feel chained to a particular sin pattern that you cannot break? Do you still feel guilty, ashamed, and doomed to repeat a besetting sin even after receiving the sacrament of Reconciliation? Then you may find a way to spiritual freedom through deliverance prayer.
In Resisting the Devil, author Neal Lozano shows that sometimes evil spirits tell us lies that lock us into sins and personal problems. He explains the practice of deliverance, a way of dealing with such demonic influences that is supported by the teaching and tradition of the Catholic Church." - Amazon
