Are Christians at risk of demonic invasion?
Absolutely not, thought Pastor Don Basham when another pastor suggested evil influences might be causing turmoil in his church and failures in his ministry. But after more troubling and perplexing problems, Basham began to discover he was wrong. 

In this page-turning account, Basham chronicles his reluctant journey from disbelief to acceptance in the existence of demonic spirits. More than a story, he imparts what he discovered about demons, the difference between infestation and possession, and how to engage in spiritual warfare. He also describes the biblical tools that bring about deliverance from demonic influence. 

Through this moving story, you will learn how to recognize the presence of evil spirits, pray for deliverance and protect against demonic invasion. It's never too late. You can find the freedom and healing you need--and be an agent of deliverance to others.

My take on this book:
If I had to describe this book in one word it would be riveting, because once I started reading it I couldn't put it down until it was finished! Don Basham was reluctant  in every sense of the word where demons and the deliverance ministry was concerned. Mr. Basham was like so many, dealing with financial issues as well as what I would consider a stagnant ministry, but he never considered that perhaps he might be under demonic attack, and when a fellow pastor mentioned this he sort of shrugged it off. Thing is God wanted to use Mr. Basham and it seemed at every twist he would be confronted with this subject over and over until he could no longer deny that evil spirits are all to real and that God had a plan to use him in this type of ministry.

Eye opening yet a little unsettling this book certainly took me on a spiritually eye opening journey. I found Mr. Basham's writing style very down to earth and easy to relate to, he shares his triumphs but also admits that he made mistakes as well. He shares the knowledge that he learns allowing the reader to learn how evil can infiltrate their lives without them even knowing it, but he also provides clear ideas on how to keep that from happening. Originally published in 1972 the writing style doesn't feel dated and Mr. Basham's experiences and the demons he encountered  are really is just as relevant today as they were then. Anyone looking to gain power over the enemy should really read this book, after all if we believe in God and the Bible we have to believe that Satan exists. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
