Following up his international best-selling book, An Exorcist Tells His Story, Fr. Gabriele Amorth, the renowned chief exorcist of Rome, expands on some of the key topics of his previous book, covering important details about demonic or occult issues. He uses concrete examples from his own experiences and those of other exorcists to illustrate and substantiate his points. Since satanic sects, occultism, s‚ances, fortune-tellers and astrologers are so widespread today, Father Amorth asks the question why is it so difficult today to find an exorcist, or a priest who is an expert in this field? The example and the teaching of Christ is very clear, as is the tradition of the Church. But today's Catholics are often misinformed. Exorcisms are reserved for appointed priests, while all believers can make prayers of liberation. What is the difference? What norms must be followed? What problems are still open and unresolved in this field? The new book by Father Amorth answers these and many other questions, supporting his discourse with a rich exposition of recent facts. A valuable, practical and instructive manual for priests and lay people, on how to help many who are suffering.
The author recounts his experiences traveling in India, and shares his impressions of the land, its people, and culture
Art of the Devil
Author: Arturo Graf
Publisher: Parkstone International
“The Devil holds the strings which move us!” (Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil, 1857.) Satan, Beelzebub, Lucifer... the Devil has many names and faces, all of which have always served artists as a source of inspiration. Often commissioned by religious leaders as images of fear or veneration, depending on the society, representations of the underworld served to instruct believers and lead them along the path of righteousness. For other artists, such as Hieronymus Bosch, they provided a means of denouncing the moral decrepitude of one’s contemporaries. In the same way, literature dealing with the Devil has long offered inspiration to artists wishing to exorcise evil through images, especially the works of Dante and Goethe. In the 19th century, romanticism, attracted by the mysterious and expressive potential of the theme, continued to glorify the malevolent. Auguste Rodin’s The Gates of Hell, the monumental, tormented work of a lifetime, perfectly illustrates this passion for evil, but also reveals the reason for this fascination. Indeed, what could be more captivating for a man than to test his mastery by evoking the beauty of the ugly and the diabolic?

Originally published in 1971, The Exorcist is now a major television series on FOX. It remains one of the most controversial novels ever written and went on to become a literary phenomenon: It spent fifty-seven weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, seventeen consecutively at number one. Inspired by a true story of a child’s demonic possession in the 1940s, William Peter Blatty created an iconic novel that focuses on Regan, the eleven-year-old daughter of a movie actress residing in Washington, D.C. A small group of overwhelmed yet determined individuals must rescue Regan from her unspeakable fate, and the drama that ensues is gripping and unfailingly terrifying. Two years after its publication, The Exorcist was, of course, turned into a wildly popular motion picture, garnering ten Academy Award nominations. On opening day of the film, lines of the novel’s fans stretched around city blocks. In Chicago, frustrated moviegoers used a battering ram to gain entry through the double side doors of a theater. In Kansas City, police used tear gas to disperse an impatient crowd who tried to force their way into a cinema. The three major television networks carried footage of these events; CBS’s Walter Cronkite devoted almost ten minutes to the story. The Exorcist was, and is, more than just a novel and a film: it is a true landmark. Purposefully raw and profane, The Exorcist still has the extraordinary ability to disturb readers and cause them to forget that it is “just a story.” Published here in this beautiful fortieth anniversary edition, it remains an unforgettable reading experience and will continue to shock and frighten a new generation of readers.
In this powerful book, the renowned exorcist of Rome tells of his many experiences in his ministry as an exorcist doing battle with Satan to relieve the great suffering of people in the grip of evil. The importance of the ministry to "expel demons" is clearly seen in the Gospels, from the actions of the Apostles, and from Church history. Fr. Amorth allows the reader to witness the activities of the exorcist, to experience what an exorcist sees and does. He also reveals how little modern science, psychology, and medicine can do to help those under Satan's influence, and that only the power of Christ can release them from this kind of mental, spiritual or physical suffering. An Exorcist Tells His Story has been a European best-seller that has gone through numerous printings and editions. No other book today so thoroughly and concisely discusses the topic of exorcism.
Memorie di un esorcista

Publisher: Edizioni Piemme

This story of courage, determination and hope is a powerful and moving memoir that pays tribute to love and devotion and the special bond between a mother and a daughter. Trudi Berger was literally snatched from the flames of the Holocaust. She and her mother were sent to the camps, yet Trudi was saved from death not once but dozens of times—by her will to live, her quick wit, her self-confidence, and especially, her love for her mother. It was this sense of devotion that in the end kept them both alive to see liberation from the camps and a return to life.
BENEATH THE VATICAN THE DARKEST SECRETS ARE HIDDEN Just when you thought you learned all there was to know in the first two volumes of Leo Lyon Zagami’s Confessions, the revelations are deeper and even more twisted in Volume III. Zagami pushes the boundaries once again with this unique and personal journey into the mysteries of the secretive world of the Illuminati. In the third book of his Confessions series a variety of topics of interest are explored that are always verified with documentation. Zagami gives an account of humankind’s function within the grand celestial battle between the internal controllers of Earth, and the external knowledge of a new generation of conspiracy researchers. This is not a work of fiction, but is instead an indispensable tool when used as a manual, to finally understand topics never before disclosed to the public. From the truth on the mythical Knights Templars, and their role in events leading up to today, to the Jesuits and their Vatican espionage game, to the hunt for the Holy Grail in the heart of the Vatican. Zagami shocks once again, showing to the world for the first time the most credible candidates of the Grail mystery, with proven testimony of a now-declared Saint of the Catholic Church. The Illuminati exist, and they create religions and influence humanity with spiritual idealogy and religious practices since the dawn of time. They have aided individuals such as Aleister Crowley and Gerald Gardner, craft the modern Witchcraft revival which hides behind a pagan image, a Satanic reality in tune with todays New Age movement. Zagami also continues what he calls “Conspiracy Reality,” a way to fight back the system of lies and deceit responsible for the rise of Satanism in the Vatican, showing in the process the magical practices of the Illuminati.
Esiste davvero Satana oppure le possessioni sono soltanto malattie psichiche o fenomeni “culturali”? Non credere al demonio significa non credere al Vangelo, perché è Cristo ad aver dato agli Apostoli il potere sui demoni e Lui stesso ha compiuto esorcismi. Questo libro si propone di rispondere a quanti hanno ancora dei dubbi sulla base dei colloqui dell’Autore con il celebre esorcista Padre Gabriele Amorth in sei anni di vita nella stessa comunità religiosa. Il racconto di fatti (alcuni dei quali davvero strabilianti) che inconfutabilmente depongono a favore della veridicità e della serietà dell’opera di Satana dimostra l’assoluta necessità di disporre di esorcisti in ogni diocesi del mondo.
