Sometimes when I'm shelving my TOPPS cart in the morning before the stores open I come across a title towards the end of the cart that makes me say, "What the fuck", or "Jesus fucking Christ you've got to be kidding me", or sometimes just "Jesus Christ". The books that cause this reaction always come from the very last section on the cart, the Christian Inspiration section.

Apparently this book has been in my section for years, but today is the first time I noticed it. The name is kind of innoce

I read this book many years ago, it was an assignment I had in a class about demon-possession and spiritual deliverance ministry. It is a book I will keep all my life and over the years have used it many, many times to help people who struggle with religious issues and strongholds in their Christian walk.

This book provides a bleak glimpse into the minds of some extremely deluded people. It purports to be a "practical guide to deliverance," an instruction manual on casting out demons from the possessed. In fact, it is a book-length recipe for disaster, an amalgam of dangerous misinformation. For example, schizophrenia (incorrectly identified as multiple personality disorder) is explained as a "nest of demon spirits," and the book presents illustrated instructions on how to drive these demons out. ...more

This book is as unBiblical as can be. It breeds fear and superstition. The author attributes, credits and/or blames demons for sinful actions and thoughts. In the book we find the demons of lust, nicotine, obesity, slouthfulness, etc. What the Scriptures ascribe to the desires our old sinful nature or our willful acts of disobedience; it describes as Christian demonization or attack. Where this in one sense leaves the person, particularly the believer as a victum and not responsible; it fails to ...more

Written years ago, this book is one of the classics on deliverance ministry. The bulk of Frank and Ida Hammond's insight on confrontational spiritual warfare comes from their years of experience in the ministry. Although not as solidly based in scripture as Derek Prince's book, THEY SHALL EXPEL DEMONS, this volume is useful in explaining how demons become established in a person's life and how Christians can assert God-given authority to remove them. Unique to these authors is a section about sc ...more

Awesome study on demons. I have read it 3 times and I will continue to read it over and over again. I get new revelation each time I read it. I recommend the workbook too.

A wonderfully practical and down to earth book about spiritual warfare in general, and deliverance from demons in particular. The reader of this book will discover a useful guide to understanding the deliverance ministry and will learn practical advice for recognizing and casting out demons. I cannot comprehend how anyone can read the Bible and not understand the need for dealing with demons as part of regular ministry. The Bible records Jesus performing deliverance on many occasions and Christi ...more

Great book, read it at least twice a year. Great for spiritual warfare. This is an area the body of Christ are uneasy with. However it was a part of Christ Ministry and as followers of Christ we cannot ignore it.

There is good information in this book. We had a few encounters of casting out demons, and from the information in this book helped us out very much. Many lack the information on what to do, and when there is someone wanting freedom from their oppression. Christians need this nowdays to help them to be equipped for battle within their ministry, within their home, and especially within their own lives. I understand that many will have a resistance from the enemy from reading this book. Because th ...more
Some advised me to read this book on demonic spirits. Some of the insight is biblical passages and divine knowledge and wisdom on the topic. Yet, other parts to me is hogwash and can't understand his concepts, so generalized and personalized that I don't believe is biblical (e.g. Persons who yawn or sigh out their demons...p. 52, also on this page speaks about food substances, gag, and other manifestations through nose or mouth). It could be the way it is worded but hard to believe these are whe ...more

I have read many books about spiritual warfare but "Pigs in the Parlor: The Practical Guide to Deliverance" by Frank and Ida Mae Hammond stands above the rest. This landmark book is both practical and deep in its breadth. What I enjoyed most about this book is its candor and honesty about the reality of demons and the destruction they bring. The book does cover traditional topics like how demons enter, the different types of deliverance needed, the rite of deliverance, freedom from demons and th ...more

My mother had this book on her shelf for years. Never looked at it. One day I decided to purchase it myself because of walking into a church where they were doing deliverance. This is a great guide.

A decent book for a beginning Christian, but not full of substance if you're looking to strengthen your walk with Christ! Very informative regarding life's demons and how to to obtain help ridding yourself of them, but not a book based on strengthening your spiritual journey! It's a good book to read though!

According to this book, almost the entire world is possessed. There is an evil spirit for everything. There's even a spirit of dance. Maybe there is and maybe there isn't. I don't know and I don't see how they do know. Just because a person shakes their hips and spins a rag, doesn't mean that the devil inside the person is a spirit of dance. Just because a person does something bad now and then, doesn't mean that the person is possessed. The whole book wasn't bad. The couple shares most of their ...more

This book was recommended to me by a very good friend. I did not find that the content was palatable or that this was an easy read. Spiritually, I struggled with some concepts. I also took issue with some points from the perspective of a mental health provider. I will say that it is structured in a way that makes information accessible and that it's thorough. However, this is not a book I would visit again in the near future.

When the author cites the National Enquirer as a source, you lose me. Maybe that would fly in the 70's, but his willingness to accept their assumed veracity caused me to doubt his discernment in other areas as well.

First book I had ever read that gave me clarity about what we are waging for and against. A tad edgy and certainly uncomfortable the first read but two or three times around new revelations came to pass in my seriously logical A type personality processor
