Forthcoming book on "Exorcism and Deliverance" (Kay and Parry)

William K. Kay and I have edited a collection of academic articles on exorcism (due out in June from Paternoster). It offers multi-disciplinary perspectives on exorcism. For those of you who may be interested, here is the contents:

"With this volume, exorcism no longer remains the outcast beyond the margins of the theological academy. This multidisciplinary exploration will be challenging for theologians in terms of modeling how contemporary theology should be undertaken, even while also providing multiple correctives for ecclesial practices from the variety of models that are presented. The editors and authors are to be commended."
Amos Yong, J. Rodman Williams Professor of Theology,
Regent University School of Divinity, Virginia Beach

I'd be interested in reading this... I had a situation in another country recently where we were doing deliverance ministry and we could figure out what was going on with this young man. schizophrenia? demons?... maybe it's not an either/or, I don't know, but God is in the business of healing and deliverance so...

Hi Robin and friends;

really off message here, but just wanted to share this ἰχθύς with you all:


Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour !

Look forward to reading it, I've read a couple of other books in the series and thay have been pretty good.

On an more or less unrelated note I've noticed that edited volumes on Pentecostalism tend to have the same structure: Bible then Church History, theology/religious studies, then ephemera (popular culture) or individual case studies

Keep me in mind for a review copy. That sounds fascinating!

What about exorcism in other religions?

Hey RR,

Very pleased to see that your new book is out. It looks great.

We tried to have a chapter on exorcism from a comparative religions perspective but the chap who was doing it had to pull out and we could not find anyone to replace him.

I'd also like a chapter on neurology and wanted one on the medieval period and another on the seventeenth century but we had major space limitations so . . .

Another cool chapter would be a first person phenomenological account. I had a dream once in which I was possessed by a demon. It was not pleasant.

Indeed. Good idea.
