This comprehensive guide examines the theology, practice, and history of the deliverance ministry. With sound theological underpinnings, it contains numerous examples and case studies and deals with frequently asked questions, providing a how-to guide for those involved in the practice of deliverance.
The Devil Goes Missing? takes spiritual opposition to the kingdom seriously without giving it excessive credence. Covering topics such as generational healing, cultural considerations, and inappropriate deliverance, this is a very sensible treatment of an area that is often over-sensationalized.
The book will be of enormous benefit to clergy, pastors, and lay leaders of all denominations, providing pastoral help in difficult situations that steers a careful course between cautious skepticism and gullible ministry.
