"Clean House Strong House by Kimberly Daniels presents itself as a "how-to" guide on demonic deliverance. The author contends that demonic deliverance is not emphasized enough by the Church as a whole, and she feels each local church should have a "devil-bustin' auxiliary." Daniels' central issue seems to be that Christians who are not practicing deliverance are not fulfilling the requirements of their salvation. She writes, "In Mark 16:17 it tells us that casting out devils is a sign of a true believer." However, similar to other claims in her book, she fails to provide any biblical cross references or other perspective verses to support this point.
"Throughout this book, Greek definitions are provided for biblical passages so that Daniels can argue her case from original documentation. However, the book's organization is sketchy and leaves the reader searching for the central theme after three chapters. Also, the use of slang diminishes the scholarly credibility of the author, despite the fact that she holds degrees from Florida State University and Jacksonville Theological Seminary in both secular and Christian education. Sometimes, as in Chapter Six, "Why the Devil Hates Women," the author takes a hiatus altogether from the book's theme.
"Obviously, Clean House Strong House was written for a readership that would be empathetic toward the charismatic movement. Unfortunately, even for Charismatics, the lack of organization makes the book hard to follow. The views of the author may be too illusory for most main stream Christians who might be more comfortable reading traditional books related to spiritual warfare." -- Johnny Boatright, Christian Book Previews.com
