While this work of fiction is well-written and keeps the readers interest, I wish the author could have published a disclaimer at the beginning. The Roman Ritual can only be performed by a priest, in good standing, and only after being duly appointed by his Bishop. The exorcist is then acting with the full authority of the Body of Christ. It isn't the exorcist who rids the possessed of the unclean spirit; that is done only and by the Triune God according to His will. Sensitives with special abilities are utilized by those officiating (they are called chrismatics) only in a supporting role, usually praying during the rite. The antichrist of the New Testament to whom is referred to in this work of fiction will be defeated by the Lord Jesus Christ upon His return (to believers, of which I am one), and it has yet to happen. The Roman Catholic Church is guilty of much (as are the Protestant denominations), however, as our wonderful world is still spinning the end is yet to come. I encourage you to read Rick Wood for the entertaining and colorful author that he is. To deny Christology in the subject of demonic possession would render the topic moot; pride goeth before a fall.
