How about Demons?How about Demons?

Possession and Exorcism in the Modern World

Felicitas D. Goodman

Narrated by Lisa S. Ware

Available from Audible

Book published by Indiana University Press

Rich in detail derived from the author's fieldwork and the anthropological literature, this work paints a picture of possession as one of the usually positive and most widespread of human religious experiences. It also details the ritual of exorcism, which is applied when things go wrong.


“It is by far superior to anything else on demons we have seen in the past few years.”

The American Rationalist

“... Goodman is to be commended for a stimulating and wide-reaching treatment of a compelling and much-debated subject.”
