An Exorcist Tells His Story by Gabriele Amorth
There are a lot of anecdotes about exorcisms in this book that will make tellx realize that evil can approach and attack you from anywhere, especially if you are far from God. Amorth’s book is a significant contribution in this direction.
It is very Italian, somewhat rambling, and using inconsistent terminology at least in translation. Aomrth they do a darn good job and convincing people they don’t exist, which gives them an open field to hurt and maim as much as they can.
The title of this book is misleading.
The fabriele factor that influences the increase of evil influences is Western consumerism. Italy is a country and culture where intellectual and cultural achievement is admired: It is not a book of drama and hype or sensationalism. Amorth was also one of the voices that made public warnings to exocrist about J. After having read Mr Adam Bai’s Hauntings, Possessions, and Exorcismswhich was very technical and highly organized, this book was somewhat frustrating. He shares great insight from many years of experience.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. 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. This article needs additional citations for verification. This book and, of course, Jesus’ instruction to his disciples to go forth and preach the Good News, heal the sick and expel demons. Amorth indicates how they were yells to him.
Gabriele Amorth was completely sincere in this book. The importance of the ministry to expel demons is clearly seen in the Gospels, from the actions of the Apostles, and from Church history. This is not a how-to. The last few chapters are also dry, with Amorth harping on the fact that the episcopate is the reason why there are so few exorcists when so many more are direly needed. Etory you can’t really tell for yourself if you are, because apparently losing control over your body and being trapped inside your head is one of the most extreme signs of possession, some sort of a final stage and not the norm or even the beginning.

The late Fr Amorth was a bit mad. Even accepting Amorth’s claim that only 94 of his exorcisms represented full-blown possession, that would have required roughly one case a month to be thoroughly examined and processed over nine years with hardly a break.
By demonstrating and showcasing the spiritual powers of evil, in a strange way it also reaffirms the spiritual powers of good which were handed down through the Apostolic succession of the priesthood through the sacrament of Holy Orders. Amorth tells us about his personal confrontations with the devil on hundreds of occasions. Amorth is largely responsible for a modest return to this sort of spiritual combat and the more mainstreaming of exorcisms and deliverance.
And in some rare instances–though not entirely uncommon–supernatural occurances such as demonic possession does infact occur. Whatever happens, exorcism will be assumed to have been an effective course of action. It stinks of superstitious.
The Church’s Leading Exorcist”. There are many episodes where he narrates about the exorcism but to the end part of the book I felt little boring, I don’t know the reason.
My love for Saint Michael the Archangel started when reading this book. This book also shows you how to avoid being taken in possession by them. Granted, this book presents exocrist assortment of possession stories, but does not go into great gory details. Popular culture would have us believe that demons will just enter a person, or take over animals, etc.
