The very fact that it took 20+yrs. to write this casts of huge shadow of doubt on it's credibility. The intricate details recounted in the story makes one question it authenticity. While certain aspects of the story do in fact lend credence to factual occurrences, I honestly feel the story has been embellished a great deal to burn up pages. The Lord would not direct someone to get involved in something that was going to cost him his marriage.
Satan is scary. In fact, in many movies, TV shows, and books right now, the big thing to deal with is an exorcism. But the Satan shown often in those instances is one without a plan, without teeth. He's a red guy with a pitchfork who sometimes shows up in unusual places on the off chance he might scare people with an eerie "get out" or two.
Bill Scott doesn't pull any punches about the situation he found himself in 20 years ago, when he encountered, prayed for, and ultimately was completely done in by, a demon possessed girl. She came in a targeted attack, and strategized her way through a church and a family. Bill says he doesn't think everyone will believe his tale. I'm sure that's true, but I also know that we don't fight a battle against flesh and blood in every instance. Sometimes Satan comes calling, and he dresses himself in a way that makes us most vulnerable to his strikes. We have to be ready, we have to know what the enemy of our souls is willing to do, and we have to wreck ourselves in prayer to fight the battles that sometimes seem impossible to win.
Bill and his family paid a price for their encounter, but as Christians, we can be better prepared because of Bill's experience. I am grateful to Bill for exposing what had to feel surreal and painful to share. Christians - Satan is real, and he is in a real war with us. We would do well to be ready to fight.

The book was good. A little different than I expected. It was almost hard for me to believe without seeing because it was so crazy. But I do believe in Demons, so it's very possible that it IS true. I definitely had an unsettling feeling after reading this.
