Playing with Fire: A Modern Investigation Into Demons, Exorcism, and Ghosts
"Provocative, insightful, and enlightening--a foray into an often-neglected topic that merits more attention than it typically receives."
--Lee Strobel, New York Times bestselling author of The Case for Christ
What is Our Fascination with the Other Side?
Join investigative reporter Billy Hallowell as he delves into the strange phenomena of supernatural activity. Themes of demonic possession, exorcism, and ghosts have overtaken Hollywood, with countless films and TV shows delving into the age-old struggle against evil. But the question is why?
Even with so much focus on the topic, there seems to be very little public knowledge and discussion about the theology and real-life claims surrounding demons. Quite often, many people remain silent about their experiences or resort to quietly whispering about what they've seen, heard, or felt for fear of being labeled as crazy. The truth is, even pastors, priests, and clergy who have observed firsthand accounts of possession and deliverance can succumb to the strange and terrifying effects of intense spiritual warfare.
For people of faith, Playing with Fire addresses these core questions:
- Are demons active today?
- If they do indeed exist, what are they? Fallen angels? Nephilim?
- Can demons inhabit human beings?
- According to the Bible, can people die and remain behind as "ghosts"?
Playing with Fire explores the theological underpinnings surrounding the supernatural. Relying on firsthand accounts, newspaper reports, and Christian experts, Hallowell takes readers through the various views and perspectives surrounding supernatural activity.
