Jimmy Holiday, exorcist extraordinaire, has been studying anything demonic ever since he got “marked”. So, here’s his top 10 list of favorite books featuring exorcism.
- Hostage to the Devil: The Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans by Malachi Martin
While Malachi was a bit controversial, his knowledge of exorcism was spot on.
- Possessed by Thomas Allen and Thomas B. Allen
The novelization of the true story behind The Exorcist.
- The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist by Matt Baglio
Great information about the Vatican’s exorcism school.
- The Exorcism of Anneliese Michel by Felicitas D. Goodman
Great book about the case. Sometimes, she seems to be inventing things, but lots of information in there.
- The Demonologist: The Extraordinary Career of Ed and Lorraine Warren by Gerald Brittle
While about a lot of haunted house cases, there is also a little bit of exorcism information contained within that is factually correct.
- Deliver Us from Evil: A New York City Cop Investigates the Supernatural by Ralph Sarchie and Lisa Collier Cool
Recently made into a film, Ralph Sarchie’s accounts of being an exorcists assistant and an exorcist himself are interesting to say the least.
- Diabolical Possession and Exorcism by Rev. John J Nicola
Book by one of the consultants for the film, The Exorcist. Extremely highly recommended.
- Lessons Learned: The Anneliese Michel Exorcism: The Implementation of a Safe and Thorough Examination, Determination… by Fr. John M. Duffey
Another book about the Annelise Michel case.
Book about a heck of a demonic haunting. House exorcisms are performed within the story.
- The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty
I had to include it. Blatty did research the book very well though.
Great list! I’ll have to beg Santa for some of these! Here’s a little more about Sorrow’s Edge and Danielle.
Finding the truth can sometimes be harder than exorcising a demon…
Jimmy Holiday, defrocked priest- turned- exorcist, is trying to make sense of his life. With his on-again-off-again witchy girlfriend moving in, Lucy- the spirit from his last exorcism hanging around, and a secret organization of exorcists hounding him, Jimmy is feeling the stress.
When a stranger calls in the middle of the night asking for help with a possession, Jimmy is puzzled. Especially when the dude on the phone says he got his number from Jimmy’s old mentor. Too bad his mentor has been dead for several years.
After a mysterious silver flask arrives at his doorstep, Jimmy is left with two options: either ignore the phone call and the flask, or listen to Lucy and travel to Arizona to solve the mystery before all hell breaks loose- literally.
Genre: Dark Fantasy
Series: Book 2 of the Sorrow’s
