What are demons? How do they gain entry? Do Christians ever need deliverance from demons?
If you are struggling with problems that never seem to go away, has it occurred to you that demons might be at work?
In this practical, comprehensive handbook on deliverance, author and Bible expositor Derek Prince addresses the fears and misconceptions often associated with the subject of demons. He describes nine characteristic activities of demons, seven ways demons gain access to people’s lives and nine steps leading you to deliverance.
By sharing his own struggles with unseen forces, he encourages believers to become equipped to take action against these evil beings. He exposes their characteristics, activities and entry points and offers solid, down-to-earth advice on how to receive and minister deliverance–and how to remain free.
This expanded edition of the classic work features a brand-new study course for groups or individuals. Each chapter includes review questions, life application questions, a memory verse and a faith response.

So I wasn’t sure what to think of this book at first. At the beginning I started to think the author believed everything bad was a demon and left out the fact that we have free well and the flesh plays a part in a lot of our bad choices. But as I continued reading the author does acknowledge this fact and that we need to be careful.
The other extreme is to ignore the work of the enemy all together, and that isn’t good either. I think many Christians live in that place and don’t realize a lot things they deal with really is the enemy at work in or around us.
I also liked that the author stated he didn’t believe Christians could be possessed by a demon but could be influenced by one, and to me that made sense.
This actually was a very interesting book and I think I would like to go through it again and really take a look at some areas in my own life that I have struggled with and don’t seem to be making any head way. Maybe there is more at work then I realize.
