This is a short book on how to counsel the demon influenced.
T. R. Temple
He made such an error on the first page of his part of the book that I am very leery of his part of the book, but Dr. Koch's (Theology) writings were great.
John F
I like to have it handy, to look up a subject to refresh my mind, it has been much help in many expected and unexpected situations.

This is an essential book of discernment and training. One must learn the difference between mental illness and possesion. Too many mistakes have been and coninue to be made in this area due to untrained individuls. Get this book, if you are walking in this realm of spritual bondage.

Format: Paperback
This book is written by one of the pioneers in this modern age helping people get free from demonic bondage only through Christ.
(a second part of the book which I hardly read is written from the medical perspective by a Christian MD. I thought other writer's stance was too carnal to be very useful in this area of ministry. He made such an error on the first page of his part of the book that I am very leery of his part of the book, but Dr. Koch's (Theology) writings were great.
Very effective, useful information building on the theme of faith in and reliance on Christ being the only way of freedom out of bondage to demons.
His tone is compassionate and he writes concisely and powerfully and his exhortations have helped me to stay free, after being delivered by Christ from many kinds of occult bondage.
He teaches that even Christians can have problems with demons due to any involvement, knowing or unknowingly, in the occult, and shows clearly, step by step using scripture how to get free.

One of the main reasons I purchased this book was to get a solid, educated Christian view on demonic topics such as witchcraft and the occult. Another reason was because I was starting to obsess over the paranormal, so I wanted to put an end to that before it really had a chance to develop.

I will start off with what I think is the only negative attribute of the book, if it can be considered negative at all: This was written 40 years ago. It would be nice to have a book with a similar objective and scholarship but instead coming from this century. Having said that, this is still a phenomenal work, establishing many links between occult activities--whether "innocent" or intentional--and subsequent paranormal/demonic activity.

The author cites several examples gathered from his field work to build his case. Many of these examples are eerily similar to demonic events recorded in the Gospels and the book of Acts, with a few examples in particular being almost identical. Skeptics will scoff at most of these, but personal beliefs have no sway over whether or not an event actually happened.

Overall, the author's examples and discussions provide a great Christian viewpoint of the occult, the paranormal, and the demonic, as well as the power of Jesus to free people from their hold.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Acts 2 Christian on April 27, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book provided invaluable, well written, concise information on the occultly influenced individual. I have done quite a bit of reading on this subject, but I found this to be very enlightening and helpful. I learned much more than I bargained for and was surprised at some of Dr. Koch's conclusions. This challenged many of the beliefs I have held about Christians being occultly posessed. A must read for any Christian who has ever felt intimidated by questionable circumstances and individuals who might be oppressed or posessed. This would also be a great resource for any church library.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By J McMurdo on September 25, 2013
Format: Paperback
This is a seriously neglected area of Christian ministry. Many people are coming into our churches whose problems are, at source, demonic. Jesus has given us 'authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy'. All too often we either take a rationalistic view of peoples' problems and blame them if they cannot overcome, or we see every problem as demonic and end up causing damage.

Kurt Koch had considerable experience in dealing with those who needed deliverance ministry. He wrote two thirds of this book. The other third is written by Dr Alfred Lechler, a Christian Psychiatrist. There are several things I like about the book.

- It is written in a cool, rational way. It is not sensationalist or triumphalistic in its tone.
- Kurt Koch is not from a pentecostal background. This gives him a broader appeal, as some people are still wary of pentecostals.
- Over 100 case studies are listed to illustrate the points made.
- Readers are warned that there are false healers who masquerade as Christians and whose gifts are demonic rather than from the Holy Spirit. Oral Roberts is given as an example of this.

The author takes us through different types of occult activity and the effect they have on a person's spiritual life. Issues like the symptoms of demonic oppression and whether a Christian can be posessed are discussed. A lot of space is given to making sure the counsellor knows whether the problem is a demonic or medical problem. There are discussions on depression, epilepsy, schizophrenia and psychopathy. There is a lengthy session on who should, and how to counsel someone with demonic problems.

We were pretty much skeptical of ideas like occult, satan, bondage and so on until we really started studying faith. This book helped bring us out of the world of make believe and into the real world which is, indeed, populated in part by people who are being held in the grip of these things.
