Item description for In the Name of Jesus: Exorcism among Early Christians by Graham H. Twelftree...

The author thoroughly examines New Testament and early Christian teaching on exorcism and suggests some contemporary applications of his findings.

Publishers Description
To many in the church in the West, exorcism seems like the stuff of movies. It requires acceptance of the premise that evil spirits exist and can invade, control, and impair the health of an individual and that the individual can, in turn, be cured through someone forcing the evil spirits to leave. "For the vast majority of biblical scholars," asserts Graham H. Twelftree, "this is tantamount to believing in such entities as elves, dragons, or a flat earth." But for Christians throughout the world--especially the developing world--exorcism is an important part of the freedom that can be had through faith. "In the Name of Jesus" is the only book that explores this common part of ministry in the early church. This reliable and historical discussion provides church leaders, Bible students, pastors, and scholars with an intriguing and unique resource.

Reviews - What do customers think about In the Name of Jesus: Exorcism among Early Christians?

Regardless of your conclusions, you must engage this book  Jul 1, 2008
Twelftree's research is scholarly and comprehensive, following two other books and many years of research on the topic of possession and exorcism. This book is not out to confirm or confront popular level books on the subject, and leaves little about contemporary application of his research until the end. He breaks down what is said on the subject by books (the Synoptics, Paul, etc.). He admits that there are few specifics to work with, but that is what makes the book all the more valuable. Twelftree explores why such an important part of Jesus' ministry was little mentioned following Acts until an explosion of interest centuries later. Well worth the price for much erudition.
