This book explores possession and Christian exorcism, placing them in the context of the fall of the angels, the fall of man, and the introduction of sin into God's creation.The authority of Jesus as an exorcist is highlighted as is the power of exorcism that he bestowed upon his Church. The nature of possession and the rites used in the performance of exorcism are addressed. This work is designed to be an exploration of both theological and practical aspects of possession and exorcism and point the reader to other resources. Although a broad Christian perspective is taken as the point of view for this work, the Anglican tradition is the primary lens through which these phenomena are explored. The author of this book is an Anglican priest.
