Deliverance from Evil Spirits: A Practical Manual
This book is written clearly and organized well. The topic of evil is rarely treated in contemporary Christian literature.
References to angels in culture and conversation seldom include the presence of evil angels. As Satan is a fallen angel and leader of evil, it behooves us to treat the possibility of evil working in our lives, our culture, our world as real and present.
Just as physical disease requires healing, healing from the influence of evil is often necessary to help the person escape the downward spiral of their life.
In recent centuries not much attention is given to evil. Perhaps this started with the Protestant reformation. I am not sure. I am sure that their is a reason that some priests are still performing exorcisms in some situations. Some of the protestant churches also perform healings from evil spirits.
Just like God, we can choose to not believe, but we can never be sure that God does not exist. We can choose to believe in only good angels, but that does not mean that Satan does not exist.
Do some reading. Follow where it leads you. Decide for yourself. Just don't be black and white--all or nothing--in thinking about and studying about God and evil.
Deliverance it is! Nov 6, 2006
This book is shurely not a teological one, but instead it is one written on experience.
Everyday Deliverance Sep 5, 2006
Provides a clear understanding of a very complex subject. Not many people know, believe or want to accept what is actually happening in the spiritual world behind the scenes of day-to-day life. Deliverance will help many understand how to be set free from these prisons.
Has more Bible, less opinion Dec 5, 2005
Recommended by my grandfather Chuck Hunt who is a Methodist Minister in Georgia, this book seemed less hocus pocus than a lot of other spiritual warfare books. MacNutt is a decent writer, but he is careful not to get bogged down in the opinions of what he thinks. Because the Bible is incredibly vague on the specifics of demon possession/oppression and excorcism it's very hard to find a person who isn't either totally denying the presence of demons or blaming every little happenstance on demon possession. Whenever MacNutt mentions his own opinion which isn't mentioned in the Bible, he always points out that it is his opinion, unlike many other authors who try to slip theirs in, unbeknownst to the reader. Very imformative book, probably the only spiritual warfare book I would read in a group setting because any others are too far-fetched and people quickly become uncomfortable.
Partly helpful--but some problems May 24, 2005
Although I'm a fan of all of Macnutt's other books, there is a landmine in the middle of this book that renders it dangerous.
Particularly helpful are the latter chapters of this book, which deal with practical issues of spiritual deliverance (e.g. forming a team, finding a place, how to prepare). Highly recommended.
But then there is chapter 6, a lynchpin chapter for MacNutt, in which he denotes the names of demons. Here, abruptly, he disembarks from the Scriptural foundation on which he's rested his case so far, and depends instead on the highly questionable exegesis found in 'Pigs in the Parlor' (there is not one bible quotation in chapter 6). It is this chapter alone that leads me to give this otherwise good book such a bad review--because naming demons is not a necessary part of deliverance--and it leads to the 'demonization of sin', in which people don't take responsibility for their personal sin, but instead blame it on an evil spirit (i.e. "I didn't lust after that woman, the devil made me do it").
So do read this book, but read also 'Power Encounters' by David Powlison, a book built on classic evangelical exegesis. Powlison rightly understands that power encounters with evil spirits do happen, but puts it in its proper perspective in terms of personal repentance and accountability for sin.
