I can't believe I read this home alone AND so late at night... I must be TRYING to give myself nightmares! Still, it was a fascinating and horrifying read. The idea of such a modern, and well-documented exorcism sure does make you wonder... especially since Chicago has its own Exorcist posted here. Not all of the information concerning exorcism, and this case, was new, of course. In fact, much of it has been covered by History Channel/Discovery Channel specials. Still, I will be sleeping with the lights on for sure!

This book was about the real exorcism that the popular horror movie The Exorcist was loosely based on. Thomas had the diary of the Bishop that helped in the excorcism and used that in writing this boook.
I must say that while the writing didn't scare me the subject matter had me terrified. I'm not sure how often I will read about demonic possesion because it really does scare me!

The shocking account of demonic possession from the diary of a priest who fought for a boy's soul, the true story of an exorcism.

This is the true story that the exorcist was based on.It makes one wonder if Possession comes from some dark devil like creature or some dark place hidden inside ourselves that only reveals itself under certain sets of circumstances.

for 40 years the truth about the exorcism of a 14 year old Robbie Mannheim remained a mystery.
