The Biblical Guidebook to Deliverance by Randy Clark, Dim is a newly published handbook introducing the reader to the deliverance ministry and the concept of demonization. Contrary to the popular media’s depiction of possession accounts, this guide dispels commonly held myths and superstitions about the idea of demonization from a biblical point of view. This pocket sized book is a basic introduction- a simplified guide about the spirit world and how evil spirits and demons influence our lives. Not only that, this guidebook addresses what to do about evil spirits from a biblical point of view. This is not a superstitious text on possession promoting Latin rituals and artifacts- which are Catholic and superstitious concepts that many hold to be true.
The cover of this book is dramatic with its antiqued image of an aged, dusty religious volume. This image is what many would expect to see when seeking out a book on “possession” and exorcism. Ironically, once the reader opens the pages, there is nothing to resemble the theatrical, Latin based exorcism traditions known to be performed by priests. This book contains simple, biblical based scripture and basic 101 level information about the spirit world. In contrast to handbooks on the deliverance ministry, this book was very simple and did not include as many prayers or scripture excerpts. This book was broad in scope and very basic- the author did not go into any extensive details. This is perfect for beginners who may be overwhelmed but may leave those readers who are familiar with the deliverance ministry wanting more information. For those looking for just a rudimentary introduction to deliverance and demonization, this is perfect. For those readers already involved in deliverance ministry or who have read other books, the material in this book may be too rudimentary. As a blogger for the Booketeria I received a copy of this book published by Charisma House for the purpose of writing this review.
