Interview with an Exorcist

Interview with an Exorcist

by Fr. Jose Antonio Fortea

In today’s culture of scientific enlightenment, many consider belief in demonic possession and exorcism to be superstitious remnants of the Dark Ages. Even many Christians, contrary to the clear words of Jesus in the Gospel, scoff at the notion that the Devil and demons really exist. Is demonic possession real? Are believers really in any danger from Satan and his crafty minions? What is the truth about exorcism?

In this captivating book, you will find answers to these questions and many more. Written by one of the Church’s foremost experts on the topic, Interview with an Exorcist is based on Fr. Jose Antonio Fortea’s years of working as an exorcist, his extensive investigations of cases of suspected possessions, and his attendance at hundreds of exorcisms.

You will learn:

  • The difference between demonic possession, obsession, and infestation
  • What really happens at an exorcism
  • The signs that show when possession is present
  • How to tell the difference between psychological problems and demonic influence
  • Why the number of possessions has been increasing in recent times
  • Why consulting mediums, dabbling in witchcraft, or having recourse to other occult practices is an open invitation to demonic spirits
  • Why the permission of the local bishop is required for an exorcism to occur
  • Why some within the Church disparage this essential apostolic ministry
  • And much more

I have been reading Christian books for more than thirty years now, and I have never read a better one than this one.
It is about the whole Christian experience and expanded my knowledge of Angels (and demons); in fact my knowledge on Angels was lacking.
By dealing with demons and coming to an understanding of them the author is able to explain things far beyond the knowledge of the layman.
The book was wonderful to read, I couldn't put it down.
Thank God for Father and his willingness to write down his knowledge and experiences.

Terrific Q & A type book that should be part of every RCIA collection!

Great little book

This book packs a lot of information into 123 pages. Easy to read, concise, and without unnecessary detail. Well suited for the layman, whether Catholic or Protestant. I purchased this book after watching “The Rite” and wanting to know more about modern day exorcism. It certainly gave me the information I was seeking without getting bogged down. If you want a survey of exorcism, demons, and the devil’s works without getting caught up in the dark side, then this is a great book to have.

Right on the mark!

Excellent book. Very easy to read and incredibly informative. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the subject of exorcism and also any practicing Christian. There is more to learn here than simply the presence of demons.
