      I'm a Christian, I'd suggest any and all beliefs be based in Biblical scripture. One exorcist in the book fell into the trap when the demon said the exorcist would be made to suffer. While most of us will not witness a real exorcism and most priests, God be thanked, will not have to perform one, the technique against the demon is still educational. Part II takes a sinister turn towards violence and the occult and the author begins to have serious doubts about Martin's veracity and sanity. Don't attempt to view this without your skeptic's glasses. Martin had with The Devil in Connecticut, and there are those who believe Satan murdered him.

      Martin was a huckster who started believing his own horseshit; he also thinks Mr. Father Malachi Martin from Kerry is the subject of the highly-anticipated show but what do we know about him? And he wants to come! A good number of the books on the ministry of exorcism are either shallow or sensationalist or both. It was stated in the documentary Hostage to the Devil that he was pushed from the stool he was standing on by a demonic force. I began to have serious concerns when it became plain he saw the "struggle" to evict an "evil spirit" as centering on the exorcist and described the exorcist as being put up as a "hostage".

      Lewis once observed as have others that the fact that no one believes in him is Satan's greatest advantage. Therefore we remain true to the timeless gospel of Jesus Christ revealed in the person of Christ and witnessed to in the Sacred Scriptures. I began to have serious concerns when it became plain he saw the "struggle" to evict an "evil spirit" as centering on the exorcist and described the exorcist as being put up as a "hostage". He found Thomas Wu inside an isolated barn, also known as, Puh-Chi.

Hostage to the devil book

He gave up his Vow of Obedience so that he could leave the Jesuit Order and his Vow of Poverty so that he could move to New York and pursue a career, all the while maintaining his Vow of Chastity until the day he died.

One exorcist in the book fell into the trap when the demon said the exorcist would be made to suffer. There is much here that is politically incorrect, and were this discussed in public forums, the author would be soundly lambasted for his intolerance.

It was during this time that Martin was asked, by the Pope, to leave Rome; which is when he decided to give up two of his three vows that made him a priest. According to the book he assisted in several exorcisms.

It also contains some old video clips and audio recordings of Martin as well as of some purported exorcisms but nothing at all juicy or substantive is offered up in these.

This disgusting massacre is known today as, The Rape of Nanking. This is why, down through history, the most powerful teachers in the church did not debate false teachers who were obstinate in their lies.

During a possession, it is very common to hear growling, and multiple languages being spoken that the victim had never learned before. Martin maintained that he remained a priest, saying that he had received a dispensation from Paul VI to that effect.

A crowd of men and women gazed at the spectacle with breathless horror; Father Michael stood in the middle of the room conducting an exorcism.

And he wants to come! So, while I have some deep concerns about the things he says about confronting demonic powers his accounts are readable, have been around for a long time now and may be something you want to read. From there it drifted into blatant self centeredness, and eventually debauchery and an acceptance of the evil forces.

I don't see any problem with recommending this book in general. We remain true to the timeless teachings of the Catholic Church and to the teachings of her saints.

On December 14, the Japanese invaded once more and were given orders to kill every living person. Thomas Wu had killed his victims and literally eaten their bodies. I am of the opinion that most of them are beyond discussion, and my reasons are outlined here.
