Book Description

A guide to deliverance ministry explains the biblical record and clarifies what a deliverance ministry is and how it functions in the church of today.

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Based on four decades of international healing and deliverance ministry, this practical manual is an invaluable tool for pastors, counselors and lay ministers.
Comprehensive and biblical, it answers the important questions about deliverance, such as "Do evil spirits oppress people today?" and "Can Christians be affected by evil spirits?" It also covers subjects such as:
• The scriptural basis for deliverance
• Misconceptions about deliverance
• Preparation for deliverance ministry
• Praying for deliverance
• The deliverance of places

"By far the best book I have seen on this controversial and difficult topic."

--Vinson Synan, Professor of Church History, Regent University; author, Century of the Holy Spirit

"The book is the most comprehensive I have ever read on the subject of deliverance. The practical steps and prayers for deliverance will help and bless many who wonder how to get started in this area of ministry, and how to remain balanced in a ministry that has not always seen sanity or balance. I highly recommend this book."

--Randy Clark, president, Global Awakening

"Francis MacNutt has written with balance and caution on a difficult subject."

--David A. Seamands, author, Healing for Damaged Emotions

"Francis continues to give us the teaching and inspiration for doing the work of the Kingdom!"

--John Wimber, founder, Association of Vineyard Churches

Francis Macnutt has a long and credible history in the practice of healing prayer. His compassion and faith leads him to share what he knows with others. With many more praying, many many more are helped. His prayer style is calm and confident. It is the power of God and not the energy of hype that brings healing through his prayers and others. Through his instruction and the instruction of John Wimber and Charles Kraft, I too have seen people healed, by God, when I have prayed for them.
This book specializes in deliverance from evil spirits, a topic that challenges our enlightened western minds. Many churches that preach the existence of Satan and demons, do not acknowledge that people need help and deliverance. Francis MacNutt's experience and the Biblical record lead to another conclusion. Demonic influence in varying degrees does affect many, and they need deliverance. Those who know this and take authority over the demonic realm can bring freedom to those who need it so desperately.
This book will guide you through evidence for demonization, the types of demons that you might encounter, and practical instruction for dealing with them. Franics MacNutt tells us that demonization is different from what is popularly known as "demon possession." Possession represents an extreme and rare form of demonization. Rather one or several demons may link themselves to a part of our lives. Often, they only manifest themselves when their territory is invaded by other forms of healing prayer.
It is significant to note the care Francis MacNutt takes to distinguish between demonization and emotional wounds, and the very important difference between Multiple Personality Disorder and demonization.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best manual on the subject of deliverance September 22, 1999
This is an excellent book on the practical how's and why's and when's when the deliverance ministry is where God has led you. Relevant examples, good balance of inner healing of wounds and spiritual healing is taught. As my own life experiences with this ministry accumulate, the information he gives is verified and affirmed repeatedly, especially when dealing with the spirits, entry points and how to proceed. Of course, the Holy Spirit is still the primary source of all "how-to's", but the information MacNutt offers is invaluable. Also recommend Noel and Phyl Gibson's Evicting Demonic Intruders and Rebecca Brown's He Came to Set the Captives Free. I have read over 80 books on the subject of deliverance, demonology, occult and the like, and the above mentioned books offer the best insight and information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Straitforward take on an weird topic August 27, 2004
As a person who values rationality, I would hardly be expected to add a book titled "Deliverance from Evil Spirits: A Practical Manual" to my must-read list. But when I ran across it in the bookstore, I felt oddly compelled to pick it up. Far from being loony, this book by Francis MacNutt (now there's a name for you!) has assembled a very straightforward account of his work delivering people from evil spirits.

MacNutt takes seriously the talk of evil spirits in the New Testament. Unlike contemporary scholars who see demons as metaphoric or psychological in nature, MacNutt believes that Jesus Christ truly encountered and overcame dark spirits, and that part of his good news was that in him, the dominion of God had broken into the world to destroy a literal dominion of evil. This concept is simple and easy enough to accept. Though many mainline Christians call Jesus Savior and Reedemer, they often don't ask, "Saved from what?" and "Redeemed from whom?" MacNutt answers: "Saved from bondage to evil" and "Redeemed from the Evil One." Simple answers like these are attractive, and more accessible than reams of scholarly texts explaining away what the gospels present without hesitation.

MacNutt believes that evil spirits exist, that they infest or possess certain people, and that Christians have the duty and obligation to pray for deliverance from these spirits. He also believes that many main-line clerics are reluctant to deal with the demonic, leaving many to suffer the predations of the Evil One. In calm, unnutty tones, MacNutt catalogues a variety of evil spirits, the types of demonic oppression and the power of curses.

MacNutt's thesis is fascinating, and empowering if true. If real, we should learn to recognize evil, protect ourselves from it and rid ourselves of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Has more Bible, less opinion December 5, 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.
