The novel introduces readers to Rodney Coleman, a shadow of a once hulking figure that ran over defenses at Texas A & M. His physical frailty is clearly evident when Grogan introduces him; however, his spiritual strength increases over the course of the story. His life changes when he meets Yacine, a truly interesting fellow seminary student from Africa. Fate aligned the super intelligent and insightful Yacine with Rodney. Would he be there when Rodney needs him most, when the fate of a loved one's soul hangs in the balance?
I had a great time reading this novel and I found myself laughing aloud on several occasions. While it was a fun read, several passages made me think deeply about spirituality. We have many questions about cause and effect. We are often quick to spew an answer when faced with a dilemma. But I have found that quick answers are sometimes dangerous, especially for new believers. There is power in the humility of admitting that we don't know the answer and conceding that we aren't equipped to handle certain situations alone. The more I read "Exorcism" I realized that I was thinking deeply just as much as I was enjoying a great story.
Leander Grogan is a prolific thinker and a witty story teller. So he naturally delivers a thought provoking and enjoyable read. I also purchased his novel titled "Orange Fingertips" and I look forward to reading and reviewing that novel. If you are looking for a fast paced novel that you will not want to put down, purchase "Exorcism at Midnight." Then think and enjoy.
Rodney “Preacher” Coleman is a thirty-eight-year-old former fullback for Texas A&M. After surviving a bad experience at a college freebasing party, Rodney is given a second chance at life. He enrolls in a seminary, becomes a minister, and moves to Dallas. Rodney is a “true” believer. But, will he still be after his trials are over?
Kathy is a freshman who attends the same off-campus party, but does not do drugs; her high-morals save her life. She follows Rodney to Dallas and later becomes his wife. Kathy is an “untested” believer. Will her faith stand the tests of time?
Yacine is an Angolan immigrant who befriends Rodney. Yacine has an extraordinary gift - the gift of prophecy. His prophesies come true. So, what does Yacine prophesy for Rodney?
Rodney and Kathy experience a series of milestones: a new house, a new ministry, a new catering business, a first pregnancy. The rise is fast. When he comes to visit from NYS to help the couple celebrate their 5th wedding anniversary, Yacine tells Rodney he has the mark of suffering – a mark you do not see, you feel – and he will serve God in a special way. Yacine also says to Rodney, “Your season has begun.” After Yacine leaves, Rodney and Kathy experience a series of tragic losses: a lost ministry, a failed business, a lost baby, a lost home. The fall is protracted. Their faith is tested, over and over. Will Rodney’s faith endure? Will Kathy’s faith survive?
During a trip to Austin to visit Kathy’s Great-Aunt Bessie Mae, Kathy shops for souvenirs at a small corner store. She leaves with a grab bag of surprise treasures, and a necklace of her choosing. But, back at home, what looked like a bargain turns out to be more than either Rodney or Kathy ever bargained for. Along with a few trinkets, Kathy encounters a demon that possesses her. How?
Yacine confirms Kathy’s possession, naming the actual demon: Nyambii. Rodney and Yacine argue. Yacine leaves, but later returns with Father Devann. The Franciscan priest helps Rodney and Yacine perform Kathy’s June 21st exorcism at midnight. Why June 21st? And, why at midnight?
Exorcism At Midnight is a sojourn, taking the reader through a test of faith, a battle against evil. Grogan’s knowledge of possessions and exorcisms is impressive and highly entertaining. Grogan’s Ecclesiastes 3 debate is deep and thought-provoking. And, the novel handles “gifts” and “marks” deftly and accurately.
Exorcism At Midnight is Christian Fiction, but I recommend it to anyone who wants to read a great work of fiction with life-affirming issues of faith and truth. It is truly a mind-opening read. 3 1/2 stars
