Review of “They Shall Expel Demons” by Derek Prince
I chose to read and review this book because I am a born again believer who does believe that demons are real supernatural beings who exist in the unseen world around us, because the bible speaks of them many times. I have done bible studies and listened to teachings about demons and deliverance, even heard testimonies regarding exorcisms, but personally I tended to focus more on God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit rather than on the activities of the devil and his demons. However, I have come to realize that if we as believers have enemies, we need to learn all we can about them for if we are called into battle against them, we need to be prepared, as a good soldier learns all he can about his enemy, in order to fight and win.
So when the opportunity presented itself to me to read this book, I chose to do so. The title and sub-title of this book intrigued me, even though I had not previously read anything by Derek Prince and had only briefly listening to his preaching, I decided that perhaps this was my time to delve into finding out more about my “Invisible Enemies”.
I will say there is a lot presented in this book that will cause you to think upon and digest. It is scripture based and is easy to read, however it can cause one to feel uncomfortable at times by knowing that these unclean spirits are all around us just wanting to cause havoc in our lives. It is also something that you might have to make yourself pick up and read at times, because remember, your enemies do not want you to be informing yourself about them and so they will be trying to cause diversion or interruptions to keep you from reading and learning, so at those times pray for strength and focus.
It is important that we know that we do have real enemies and that we know how to combat their tactics. If you didn’t previously believe in demons you will after you read this book. You will also learn what they are, how they operate and how they gain access in people’s lives. You will also learn how to take action against them, for this book will show you how to receive deliverance from them if you need it, and also how to stay free of them.
There are study questions on each chapter and answers to those questions also. So this book would be a great tool to use in a personal or group setting to study.
I was given a copy of this book free by Chosen Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts expressed are my own.
