  1. Jessie Jessie says:

    Badly researched and compiled and painfully subjective For all the emphasis on empiricism there was a remarkable lack of it in this book


  2. Art Art says:

    An interesting look at demonic possession in modern Italy The book gives a brief history of demonic possession in the New Testament and in Roman Catholic tradition The author goes on to spotlight several exorcists and some of the people they have tried to help She also talks about Satanic cults in Italy and some grisly murders She wraps up the book with insights from psychologists and skeptics The only thing I didn't care for is the author's obvious skepticism and her ignorance of the philosophy of science Here's a representative remark from the author Religion is not logical It is based on faith not reason Yes religion is certainly based on faith However I would disagree that religion is not logical Most if not all religions have at least some internal logic No religion is completely logical Nor I might add is any system of human thought And apparently unknown to the author scientists are often exercising a lot of faith in their theories and models She also seems to be somewhat ignorant of modern trends For instance she seems skeptical when priests tell her that witchcraft and occult practices are on the rise The author really needs to get out Most chain bookstores have an entire section on neo paganism wicca witchcraft and the occult including how to practice One can logically deduce that there is an increasing interest in these things An interesting book Good but not great


  3. Jessica Nelson Jessica Nelson says:

    Truthfully I only got halfway through before I had to read other things not because I was bored with this but because I HAD to read them but look forward to the day I re read what I've already read and read the rest It provides a rarely seen side of Catholic belief and practice


  4. Marc Marc says:

    This was a very interesting look at demonic possession in the Catholic Church What I found most interesting was the details on the schism within the church regarding possession and exorcism It was a short enjoyable read


  5. Renee Renee says:

    Very good but to honor an Exorcist who is not in union with the Church is practicing his ministry in a grave way The protection and safety of the Church in critical in such a topic

    Picked this up on a whim and breezed through it in a day so easy and clear is the journalism of Tracy Wilkinson As I expected from a journalist with no training in religious subjects the book butchers many terms ignores historical nuances simplifies many complex themes and generally treats the world of exorcisms as a side show in a circus If I have to read another book where the term fundamentalist is misused I think I will burst a capillary in my eye Not only was it a factual mistake as Catholics are specifically named in the treatise The Fundamentals as not fundamental But it is insultingly synonimous with violence in Wilkinson's view Still if you want to read a book about the actual modern day world of exorcism this is not a bad place to start To her credit she does take the time to tell us what Christians in general and Catholics in particular believe about demons and the rituals that are used to drive out evil spirits She impressed me by including the relatively ignored fact that exorcisms are present in daily life of communicants such as in baptisms or in the Easter renunciation recited by Catholics This bookish stuff is probably less interesting than revolving heads but what the heck put it in there maybe someone will actually be informed What Wilkinson does really well is to reduce the different personalities of the exorcists and patients into easy to digest sketches that seem to reflect accurately what I have read over the years of the different individuals involved in the scene She does inject a soft but cynical brand of bias but that's just daily bread As she herself notes the exorcists she interviews are the most notorious except for the french Dominican She misses as she is supposed to much of the fundamentalist I mean orthodox Catholic practitioners I am astounded that she does not include an interview with the California based organization that is considered the most authoritative body of practitioners but then again it is not in Rome There is such a thing as being too close to really form an opinion Probably these folks would not talk to her anyway since it is the informal policy of such practitioners as directed by the Holy See to avoid sensationalism Dermian as she notes is closer to the modern crop of exorcists men who keep an eye on the psychology of their patients and who adhere to the guidance of the church getting no pride out of the thing Wilkinson does catch several important trends the struggle of certain lone guns against new norms and the struggle to distinguish between psychological and spiritual suffering On this topic she uotes but fails to digest what several exorcists are saying to her that insanity and demonic activity often go hand in hand She does note that there is a nascent interest in the church to emphasize personal responsibility first before external forces in the field of exorcism Because confession and personal sin are a just recently added idea and she attributes this to the Vatican being embarrassed by Amorth's remarks a few years back With an invisible smirk Wilkinson ponders if this will affect the church's credibility and accountability Hmm where have I read those remarks before regarding the church? LOL Throughout the book Wilkinson attempts to figure out which patients are merely psychologically disturbed and which are truly a mystery which I think is a valuable and fruitful exercise I can definitely see where some of those folks interviewed might be a bit deluded and reading between the lines that even Wilkinson does not see I think Dermian does a solid job of being discreet Lucia's case is an interesting one but I am annoyed by Wilkinson's derisive comments that paint Lucia's modest background as 'ignorant' Real things don't happen to poor people Combining Milingo and the Dashing scholarly priest as both 'primitive' is also super disrespectful to the African Milingo but I don't think Wilkinson realized she did that If Dashing priest were truly as intellectually sophisticated as he seems there's no way he'd believe in the devil I did learn some things though I learned that I can absolutely see some of what the old guard is saying about not fearing the devil just as you would not be afraid of highway traffic One thing that was made clear to me as I shook my head over some of the remarks of specific priests was how much their power was in their office and not in their specific persons I think whenever I look at that of the uestion that St Francis was asked What would you do with a sinful priest? A I would receive my Lord from his hands It is the office not the man


  7. Frank Frank says:

    Very well written Explains what an exorcism is really like and covers both sides of the argument Explores a few different people extensively as they tell their story and same with the Exorcists themselves


  8. j j says:

    Just awful Seriously This is why I am intrinsically leery of many books written by journalists while some are amazing at what they do others seem to go into book writing bringing only the parts of journalism that well suck First of all a book this skinny that attempts to discuss the ridiculously complex concepts of demonic possession and exorcism? That should give you a bad vibe right off the bat The research is shallow; the concepts are oversimplified; and the author just has such overt hostility towards her subject matter that I actually feel secondhand embarrassment for the people she interviewed It doesn't help that it appears she deliberately selected extremists from the communities she did choose to represent ex the fellow who suggests that Harry Potter books are evil because they teach sorcery to young people


  9. Matt Price Matt Price says:

    A journalist's straightforward approach offers a clear depiction of exorcism in the heart of Italy Interviews with those afflicted with inner demons and psychological instability priests that practice exorcism from the fantastic to the reluctant as well as skeptics in law enforcement and psychology tell the story of modern day confrontation with evil and how it is perceived The author allows all stories to be told and finds compelling examples and inconsistencies but eventually falls into the skeptics' camp ending the book with ways of debunking most phenomena I'm skeptical of the author's willingness that what happens in exorcism can be explained away by the eually dubious reason of hypnosis


  10. Rachel Rachel says:

    Sorry it's just impossible to take seriously a book about Catholicism that asserts repeatedly that Vatican II marked the beginning of the church applying reason to faith The transparent ignorance of the author about the tradition of thought behind the practice she seeks to describe produces an account that fails to even address what could have been the most interesting dimensions of the subject matter Between repeating information that is simply false and offering simplistic analyses that overlooked major areas of inuiry the book ends up offering little than a few curious anecdotes naked of any coherent explanation of the phenomena at hand
