    MATT BAGLIO, a reporter living in Rome, has written for the Associated Press and the International Herald Tribune.

    In 2007, the Vatican’s chief exorcist revealed an initiative to install an exorcist in every diocese worldwide. Three days later, the Vatican denied the story.

    Father Gary Thomas was working as a parish priest in California when church leaders asked him to travel to Rome for training in the rite of exorcism. In Rome, as an apprentice to a veteran Italian exorcist, his eyes were opened to a darker side of the Catholic faith he had never known, and he came to see the battle between good and evil as never before. Journalist Matt Baglio had full access to Father Gary over the course of his training, and the astonishing story he found reveals that the phenomena of possession, demons, the Devil, and exorcism are not merely a remnant of the archaic past, but remain a fearsome power in many people’s lives even today. The inspiration for the movie The Rite, starring Anthony Hopkins, this book provides a uniquely intimate glimpse into the chilling world of a real-life Roman Catholic exorcist.

      It's not that I wasn't satisfied with the book so much as it wasn't what I was expecting. I was expecting a book that was like the movie, this was more a review of the historical views of the church on exorcism and how things have changed over time with lots of explanations, definitions, etc. It was educational more so than entertaining.

      what seems to be a very honest and direct approach to explaining this para normal phenomenon. I have read other books on the subject but this one seems to the most down to earth and least sensational....very interesting
