The Day Satan Called: A True Encounter with Demon Possession and Exorcism

Out of Christian love he and his wife invited a young lady who was demon possessed and the member of an active satanic network into their home.

What happened instead were death threats and the loss of their home as a sanctuary.

Publisher's Summary

The Day Satan Called is Bill Scott's account of an excruciating 18-month period in his life. Out of Christian love, he and his wife invited a young lady who was demon possessed and the member of an active satanic network into their home. They prayed the sinner's prayer with her and believed that they could help redeem someone who had witnessed and experienced unimaginable rituals and abuses.

What happened instead were death threats and the loss of their home as a sanctuary. Voices. Threats. Objects falling and moving. Strange visitors and callers. A loving church falling into turmoil. And yes the voice of Satan. Every day was filled with the dread of nightfall.

Once you've invited someone filled with demons that aren't leaving her into your home what do you next? Where do you send her? How do you protect yourself and your family? What do you do after she's finally gone but the demons haven't left?

This is the account of a terrifying and incredible phenomenon. But ultimately, it is a testament to the power of God's love, even over evil spirits.

    Story
    "not believable, nor consistant"
    What disappointed you about The Day Satan Called?

    Firstly, the TITLE is completely misleading. This book was much more about the bible & accepting Jesus Christ, than haunting demons, possessions, & Satan.. Secondly, It just plain was not believable. The first chapter really kept my interest & was very intriguing. Then it just got to be ridiculous...... the writer's actions & reactions just didn't follow human nature. I was looking for a good, scary, TRUE story about demons, hauntings, or possession, where good probably triumphs over evil, perhaps with a mention of Jesus here & there..... not a Bible lesson.


    Has The Day Satan Called turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, this book has not turned me off to others in this genre. I would take anoother chance. This topic is very interesting & believable to me.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Too many religious references, & very seemed to be very contrived.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was unpredictable at times...... just too fake & religious.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time unless you're looking for a religious type read.

    "Pretty absurd on a number of levels"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone more gullible


    What could Bill Scott have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Made the story more plausible.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Bill Scott’s performances?

    No


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Day Satan Called?

    All


    Any additional comments?

    The story is simply not credible because of all of the questions that Bill explains he still had at the end of the experience. These were all things he would have asked this girl who lived with them for months if this were real; especially since he got in touch with her again in order to write the book. The relationship between Bill, his wife, and this supposedly possessed girl just does not ring true.

    "still skeptical"

    about 1/3 of the way in the author acknowledges that audio recordings exist of "the voice" which i feel just teases the listener. anyone know where those tapes are?

    Story
    "Dead on Real-- Riveting, compelled to the end."
    If you could sum up The Day Satan Called in three words, what would they be?

    Authentic, engaging, and fascinating, I loved this book, it was engrossing, it was real, it was frightening, intriguing and addictive.This is a book written by a Christian, expect it to be from a Christian perspective. This subject matter could be difficult to believe if you have never experienced anything like it before. I was intrigued by this book because I, like the author found myself accidentally in very similar circumstances (minus the witch who was going to be sacrificed on Halloween). This book validated my own experiences and likewise I can validate this book as real. I have been on the phone when all the other phones suddenly went dead. The phone wiring turned out to be disconnected but the phone connection I was on worked until I hung up. It should not have worked at all if the wiring was disconnected in the natural. The phones had all been working prior then suddenly they went dead. Nothing in the natural world could account for the phone line suddenly being disconnected no human could have done it. Demons can move matter like unplugging the main phone line yet allowing just one extension to continue to work. I have had all the electronics in my home go dead for days then suddenly they all work again but the power never went out. How about a garage door that opened and closed when it wanted to. WE COULD NOT over-ride it and close it. There was a microwave that would turn on whenever IT wanted to. We would be in the other room and suddenly the microwave would just turn on and we would hear the rotating platter going round and round. I had to make sure that it was not plugged in whenever I left the house. I was later engaged to an electrician he could not explain any of these strange electrical issues in the house.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    For me it was so real, it was so intense, I am in the middle of my own issue so I was picking up tips on how to handle or not handle my own situation, and in some instances I was sitting at home saying NO NO don't do that!!! Because I already knew what was going to happen next based on having done the same thing. You know when you are watching a TV sitcom and you know where it is going you can predict the next couple of minutes. Well that is why I can say this is a real life story, because I could predict ahead just like that with this audio book.Other reviewers at other sites complained that there are not saved recordings of the demon speaking on the telephone. I have heard a demon speak out of someone's mouth. Until it happens you can't understand how in a bone chilling instant you know that the person speaking is not the person you know. The mannerisms are different, the words may actually sound like someone speaking out of a different time and place, chills and fear run through your spine. What do you do? How do you respond? It is unbelievably scary when it happens, your instincts tell you to run for your life! Sometimes their facial features even change, they actually can morph in front of your own eyes and look completely different.(I have seen this) For those who can't accept this is true, it is only because you have never experienced anything like this-- it understandably defies all human logic and everything they understand about our world. But they are wrong!!! This book is very REAL! The spiritual world is very real.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    That is hard, I don't want to give anything away, hmm, (I think this happened in chapter 10) when the author Bill Scott (was being sarcastic and joking) he told his co-worker (paraphrasing) that Bill should tell the demon spirit to bow the knee and to bring the stored witchcraft items (from another state) to Bill, in the studio. What happened next was jaw dropping, shocking, and frightening. Another really intriguing and frightening scene was when the girl entered Bill's sound proof radio control room. She shut the door, then the demon in the girl manifested and attacked Bill out of the blue, there was no-one around to help him...the situation... how he handled it...was pretty intense.I loved this book!!!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but it was 6 hours long. I did listen to it in three chunks and two days. And then I began listening to it all over again. I loaned it to a friend who listened in the car with her teenagers they too were riveted and silent while they listened.


    Any additional comments?

    Get the book. If scary movies freak you out don't listen to it in bed or as you are falling asleep, that is unless you want nightmares.

    Story
    "They found a use for Mr. Movie Phone"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would only if said friend was interested in demonic possession from a very religious stand point.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Day Satan Called?

    When his wife was able to see the figure in the mirror for the first time.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bill Scott?

    Truly no offense to Bill Scott, but he has a voice for radio full of animation and vigor. Anyone with a less radio worthy voice would have been better.


    Did The Day Satan Called inspire you to do anything?

    I love the subject of demonology and this while some seemed a tad unbelievable was just another in the long line of reads for me.

    "Super cliche and awful reading."
    Would you try another book from Bill Scott and/or Bill Scott?

    The amount of times the narrator says "and just when I thought things couldn't get crazier" every chapter, it gets super old super fast. In addition, more of a book about Jesus/ than the actual "story" of the haunting/demons. The author/narrator is a radio show host and you can tell. It sounds like a disk jockey telling a spooky story and it's difficult to take seriously. I obviously can't speak to the truth of this book, but that's not why I read these things anyway. If you are looking for a good story with GOOD narration, look elsewhere.

    "Scary Good!"
    Which scene was your favorite?

    All the scenes where the demon would talk were riveting.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes! and that is saying a lot for me. Knowing that it is a true story makes it all that more disturbing.

    "Enjoyed but had hard time beleiving it's true."
    What did you love best about The Day Satan Called?

    My own mind.... what I enjoyed most about the story was the thinking, picturing and asking myself could I see this happening. My answer was I really couldn't see it as being true... but who knows. I honestly hope it was all B.S. lol Could be real, you explore yourself.


    What other book might you compare The Day Satan Called to and why?

    I'd compare to the Bell Witch, difference is a big one though. The Bell Witch has a lot of documentation.


    What about Bill Scott’s performance did you like?

    Well done.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    none.
