Can a Christian be demonized? This question touches upon the mental, physical, and spiritual welfare of many Christians. It is an issue too important to be ignored.

In Demon Possession and the Christian, Dr. Dickason presents compelling evidence--from the Bible, theology, and counseling experiences--showing that Christians can indeed be affected by demon activity. He discusses demons, salvation, the authority of Christ, and the relationship of demons and believers. Through his clear and direct exposition, readers will gain a renewed appreciation of Christ's love and power. This book equips Christians to fight spiritual battles--and win!

This is a very thorough, well-written book. Having written the excellent "Angels: Evil and Elect," Dr. Dickason has studied the phenomenon of "demon possession" first, scripturally--then examines the clinical evidence for being "possessed." Although belief in demon possession (or being "demonized"), is widely accepted by conservative biblical scholars, the topic of whether a Christian can be possessed is debated. Dr. Dickason totally changed my thinking on this topic. His thoroughness impressed me. His insights enlightened me. His conclusions shocked me! I recommend this book for anyone interested in this topic--- in fact, I've used this book as a required text for my graduated level theology class. Excellent!
