I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. I am not religious but it peaked my curiosity. Well I did like it. The book delves into the history of church sanctioned excorcists and their training. The reader follows one American priest's journey of training for the exorcist program in Rome. He observes all types of exorcisms - from very mild ones that require just a blessing, to very violent ones that need repeated treatment. The author also discusses the church history of angels and demons and theories from both believers and non-believers. I recommend this book to anyone that is interested in the topic. I found it to be fairly grounded.
