Resisting the Devil – A Catholic Perspective on Deliverance

by Neal Lozano


To cut to the chase, this book is not a page turner, but it is informational.

This book will explain the difference between deliverance, exorcism, obsession and oppression. It does give a few real life examples, but if like me, you were looking for awesome, crazy, mind blowing devil stories, then sadly they are not in this book.

If you feel that you are being tormented or influenced by the devil, this book will guide you. The only downside is that everything is of course a case by case basis, so that means no black and white answers.

Some of the book did seem over-obvious to me, such as the Eucharist and Reconciliation are 2 of our best tools against the devil. But on the other hand, any book that promotes our Most Blessed Eucharist and Reconciliation gets my vote.

Throughout the book, Lozano cites his other book, Unbound: A Catholic Guide to Deliverance. So it appears that book would be more in depth on practice, not just explanation (but I have not read that book).

I do love good devil/exorcism stories, so I wouldn’t be doing my duty if I did not put a plug in for 3 of my favorites An Exorcist Tell His Story and An Exorcist – More Stories, both by Gabriele Amorth and Interview With an Exorcist. These books will have you with the covers pulled over head scared, then you are yearning for more, then you are putting on your armor for battle.
