Opened my mind
How matter of fact they speak. Most books and movies it seems, try to not only make you believe but also themselves but in this book they say it doesn't matter if you believe or not this is real.
The Beckford's story.
Yes. No it opened my mind to a world that can't be seen.
This book is extremely well written and kept my interest all the way through something that very few books have done.
Decent narration. Nothing to write home about, but the story itself is what keeps you hooked.
This book has to appeal to your particular interests for it to have meaning or value. Those who don't believe will dismiss everything as mistake, coincidence, delusions, etc. This book goes into detail what happens when the world stops being so bright and the darkness takes over. Very scary and certainly creepy.
Enjoyed the book and I would highly rwcommend. Real evil does exist and this book does a great job of informing the reader on how to avoid situations where you could get involved in an encounter.
The author seemed to condense the knowledge and wisdom of the life experiences of the Warrens. He did a great job of presenting everyone in a manner that was both entertaining and informative. I got a lot of answers from this book.
The sincere way in which the paranormal was described and discovered.
I have followed the cases that Ed and Lorraine Warren had worked on for most of my life. It was nice to hear information that I hadn't heard before.
I have a whole library of Christian deliverance books. This book has a lot of correct biblical information, but with a few glaring and dangerous opinions that are not in agreement with what Jesus taught. For instance, Ed believed in reincarnation instead of having the knowledge of generational spirits,and how they can enter a baby as it emerges from the birth canal. These are the spirits who stay with one family until someone in that line breaks the soul ties with that demon. Have you ever heard someone say, " all the women in our family can see ghosts." ? THAT is what generational spirits do; work in one family until they are made to leave. Jesus said "it is appointed for a man to live once, and after that the judgement." I tis also written that "the sins of the father is visited upon the children. " Generational spirits can be this way also. What you do in your lifetime can effect your children for many generations to come.
Yes. I was very upset that Ed told the reporter about a girl having been delivered from demon possession. He explained that she was beyond her years in knowledge of evil as a child because she had lived other lives before, and was a practicing witch in those previous lives. He was wrong. Somewhere in her family line, someone had invited the demon into the family, and as a baby, perhaps in the event of her birth itself, she was possessed. He also said that hell- as the bible teaches (a real place with real fire and "gnashing of teeth" where the damned will be tormented forever)- didn't exist as a real place, but Hell is just being separated from God. He stated that when the demons talked about Hell and the fires that they were trying to escape, they are nothing more than an exaggeration.
Yes. I was raised with a Christian mother, a wiccan father, and in a family with a variety of views from our American Indian heritage thrown in for good measure. I have seen "ghosts" since I was a little girl, 2 or 3 years old. I also had a ghost for a best friend in one house that we lived in for years. She interacted with me, moved things in my room, and even ran a bath for me as I watched. I have had prophetic dreams all my life, and they have ALWAYS come true, even when I was too young to understand what had happened, or why. In school I was called "witch'' because I could smell death, and told a carload of fellow students (not my friends) that someone was going to die at a school function. I could smell death as we went through the gates. I also couldn't see; everything went black in the middle of a summer sun filled day. (I didn't MEAN to tell them. I was crying, telling my friend-who drove us-what was happening. I didn't want them to go with us because I didn't know them.) I was a Christian and all my friends knew that. How did it happen that I was still having those "gifted moments"? Since I reached an age of maturity, I made it my responsibility to research what the bible, Jesus, said about what I've lived through. I have since learned that I had to break those soul ties myself to be delivered from what had run in my family for generations. The fact that Ed didn't know that, and even now-after his death- his ignorance can still affect the curious AND those in mortal danger, turns my blood cold. I pray that Ed learned the truth before he was called to go into eternity, and I pray that those who hear this/read this book are only those mature enough to know the difference. Gb~
I am a school counselor that loves horror, fantasy, autobiographies, self-help, and Christian genres. I am a BIG bookworm! Reading is life!
I like that he uses different voices for Ed & Lorraine Warren as well as the demonic voices. It gives the story more character!
The book was very informative and interesting! I loved the movies, "Annabelle" and "The Conjuring" so I was definitely interested in learning about Ed & Lorraine's career! So much information on what to look for with demons and Earth-bound spirits as well as stories of what they have experienced.
It depends on the friend! I don't know if everyone can handle the truth! I also would want that friend to be spiritually grounded. Knowledgeable about the fight between Heaven and Hell!
I have always been impartial to Lorraine. That continued in this book! I'm familiar with the Warrens body of work. I've listened to her speak on live radio. She is the real deal! The perfect person to comfort a family/person under demonic attack!
He voiced the demons so well. There were a couple that made all my hair stand on end while cold chills popped up everywhere!
It's always shocking pulling the curtain back on what really goes on with Satan and his minions! They are cunning, formidable opponents. Only through Jesus Christ can battle be waged upon them! There were times I got that feeling in my ears like someone was standing behind me! Truth is always stranger than fiction!
This is a serious book! A lot of people will say they don't believe in the Devil or demons. That's ok, they believe in you! They will take your life! While destroying everything you hold dear! It amazes me how people can witness an item levitating, or hear a demon speak to them and still try to explain it away as not paranormal! Here, the true story most churches don't want you to hear are revealed here! Because the actual amount of demonic cases are less than 1% of those investigated. Buckle in for a book you can't stop listening to! I finished it in a day & it was great! Well worth the credit spent!
Singapore audible fan!
I could not stop listening to this book. There is no dull moment at all. Yes, it is scary, but very educative at the same time. The narrator is superb!
i loved this book. anything with the warrens in it is very interesting. i always loved to see them on unsolved mysteries when i was a kid and they have been involved in any case that interests me. 10/10 would listen again
