I have had a number of interviews since my book I Am Not Afraid: Demon Possession and Spiritual Warfare was released last year. All of these interviews have been a blessing, but I believe two interviewers stand out above all the others. Many of you have already heard my interviews with Todd Wilken of Issues etc. Todd is one of the best interviewers out there and I am thankful for his work. Nevertheless, this Interview with Derek Gilbert stands alongside the Issues Etc interviews as necessary resource for anyone interested in the topic of exorcism and spiritual warfare. I am grateful for Derek’s interviewing skills and his acceptance to not only provide me with the opportunity to talk about my book but also for his 5 star review of my book.

Here is the link to the interview from View From The Bunker:

I also did a 1 hour interview with the host that will be on his website and fb page in the next week or so. It is nice to see my book gaining traction in American Christianity.


I will be going back on Coast to Coast AM radio in July. This time I will be talking about the book that I am writing about American Spirituality. The show will air on July 29th from 11pm to 2am. More details to come.

On Tuesday (June 3rd, 2014) I had the opportunity to answer questions related to my book I Am Not Afraid: Demon Possession and Spiritual Warfare and general questions about demon possssion, exorcism, and spiritual warfare from a Lutheran prespective.

A friend of mine sent me the following link for a new movie:

Whenever, these movies come out I try to get out to see them just so I can keep up with the bad theology that people are attributing to how the Church handles the topics of Satan and demons. So I will no-doubt watch the movie when it comes to local theaters. What problems do I have with such movies? They always give the devil more power than he possesses. Yes, it is true that Satan has the ability to do horrific things, but in view of Jesus he is powerless and week. Our reliance must always be on Jesus who has already defeated the devil and his demons on the cross not on men and their formulas. The seven son’s of the jewish priest learned this lesson in Acts chapter 19 and it would be good for those so-called demonologists to remember such things.

For true life stories of Possession and how Jesus defeats the devil see the book, I Am Not Afraid: Demon Possession and Spiritual Warfare

The six-day meeting in Rome aims to train about 200 Roman Catholic priests from more than 30 countries in how to cast out evil from people who believe themselves to be in thrall to the Devil.

The conference, “Exorcism and Prayers of Liberation”, has also attracted psychiatrists, sociologists, doctors and criminologists in what the Church called a “multi-disciplinary” approach to exorcisms.

Giuseppe Ferrari, from GRIS, a Catholic research group that organised the conference, said there was an ever growing need for priests to be trained to perform exorcisms because of the increasing number of lay people tempted to dabble in black magic, paganism and the occult.

Rev. Dr. Robert H. Bennett, PhD.:

The Roman Catholic Church is calling for more exorcists because of the return to spiritualism in our society. I think they are correct in recognizing this problem however I do not find their understanding of exorcism helpful. If you want to learn how Lutherans deal with the issue please consider reading my book I Am Not Afraid Demon Possession and Spiritual Warfare.
