For most people their only encounter with the ministry of exorcism is through sensational books and films, but when the need for it arises in real life it is important that it is conducted confidently and competently. However, the opportunity for training in this field is limited. Ken Gardiner is an Anglican priest with more than 30 years of experience of ministry in this area. In The Reluctant Exorcist he shares what he has learned for the benefit of those who find themselves involved in setting people free from the influence of the occult.
He covers the cleansing of places – ‘things that go bump in the night’ – to the deliverance of those who have become involved in occult activity such as playing with the Ouija board or witchcraft and Satanism.
