Item description for Deliver Us from Evil: A Pastor's Reluctant Encounters with the Powers of Darkness by Don Basham...
Overview Does the idea of demon possession seem far-fetched?
It did to pastor Don Basham. But when members of his congregation revealed problems strangely unresponsive to traditional Christian answers, he was forced to take a closer look. Slowly Don moved from disbelief in the existence of demons to acceptance of their reality, as he identified, then put to work, principles in the teaching ministry of Jesus. The results were dramatic.
Deliver Us from Evil is more than a good detective story. It is a compendium of Bible teaching on warfare and evil spirits, and will show you how to pray for deliverance and how to protect yourself against demonic invasion. Deliverance, after all, is more than freedom from evil; it is delivery into the freedom to love and serve the Lord.
