From the Publisher
Annotation The topic of horror movies and sensationalistic news stories, exorcism in the Catholic Church may seem like a marginal topic consigned to urban legend status, but Matt Baglio's page-turning nonfiction portrait of a modern day exorcist reveals that the practice is very much alive, and actually gaining in legitimacy and popularity. Baglio's fascinating book is rife with stories about tough priests whose passion is in conquering the demons within. The book centers around the story of the American priest Father Gary Thomas, who travels to Rome in 2005 at the request of his bishop to learn more about the exorcism rite and to assist Father Carmine, a seasoned exorcist. Baglio's vivid prose makes the central characters come to life. His book may not change anyone's minds about whether exorcisms are real, but he delves into an obscure topic with respect, insight, and relish.
