Product Description

Product Description

Deliver Us From Evil, by J. F. Sawyer, is the first book to introduce Ed and Lorraine Warren and their unique occupation to the world. All cases in this book are prior to 1973. Since the first publication of this book, the Warren's have gone on to become known as the original ghost hunters. Together they've been involved in ghost hunting for over fifty-five years throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Scotland, Great Britain and Europe to name only a few places. They became known worldwide with investigations of the WestPoint Military Academy, Amityville Horror, The Haunting in Connecticut, Brookfield Demon Murder Case, Jack and Janet Smurl case to name a few.

The Warrens have been featured around the world on thousands of radio and TV shows, local news, and documentaries. They have been on Sally Jessy Raphael, Sightings, History's Mysteries, In Search of… , American Ghost Hunter, MTV's Road Rules, A Haunting, Current Affair, Unexplained Mysteries, Paranormal State (Lorraine Warren) and Scariest Places on Earth, to name a few.

The cases in this book are the first published cases taken from the files of Ed Warren, a demonologist, now deceased, and his wife, Lorraine Warren, an active medium. The cases are filled with tragic possessions, ghostly infestations and demonic obsessions. Deliver Us From Evil does not ignore the potential potency of curses, spells, Voodoo dolls, ceremonies, especially for those who have opened themselves up to supernatural infestation.

Despite the fact that the Warren's are Catholic by belief and practice, Ed says, “I believe that any religion which teaches the love of our fellow man and the love of God is based on a sound foundation. Because I was brought up as a Catholic, I tend to use Catholic methods in my work. If I were in one of the deepest jungles of the world where so-called “primitive” witch doctors of a good nature were present, I would not hesitate for a moment to ask for their help in exorcism rites."

The case studies chronicled in this book are a kind of universality of evil spirits, how they operate and what they do. In various stories the Warren's point out how spirits move from infestation, the first stage and the mildest state, to the more dangerous obsession and finally the last and worse stage, possession. The only difference between obsession and the last stage, possession, is one of degree. Deliver Us From Evil describes these experiences in an entirely no-holds-barred way.

If you study these stories and these phenomena carefully, you find that one opens the door to infestation, obsession and possession by careless fixation on the occult, playing with the Ouija board, toying with Satanism or black magic. One archetypical connection is the Ouija Board. According to Ed Warren, "This object, often regarded as a harmless toy, is the way that ordinary people are often lured into making a dangerous connection to the other world." In fact, of the fourteen cases discussed, five of them are initiated by contact with an Ouija Board.

The Warrens have tenaciously pursued this phenomena for so many years and witnessed people that have been tragically affected by apparitions, ghost whisperings, brutal and unexplained explosions, strange footsteps in the night, uninvited incursions into the privacy of their bedrooms, including various physical attacks on their person, one can only say Ed and Lorraine Warren must be very brave people indeed.

This book is not entirely about exorcism and many of these stories do not conclude with happy endings. It is more a book about the existence of these forces and how these supernatural events follow a certain pattern.

To sum up the point of Deliver Us From Evil, it would probably be to teach you of the reality of paranormal or supernatural forces rather than to cite an easy route to deliverance. The title of this book is a phrase taken from the Lord’s Prayer - Lead us not unto temptation, but Deliver Us From Evil. Get it now!

I found the stories in this book way to short - they only give the basics they don't go into the heart of the matter. All in all it was a good read

1.0 out of 5 stars What a Shame Dec 3 2011
By Eden.M - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Warrens must of had a wealth of knowledge between them regarding the paranormal, and I'm positive anyone buying this book would of expected nothing less than the pick of the crop when it came to their experiences. But I'm here reviewing this to say that is NOT what you'll get, what you will read is a simple basic outline that barely differs from case to case, and each case is barely covered, no details about what the Warrens did, where the people were leftbwith the issue. The closest I could put it would be a cheap & quick newspaper article where you know something happened, and that's it ! I'd love my money back, my time I'm ok with only took me a couple of hours to read the whole book, don't buy this thinking you'll gain an insight into the Warrens OR the Paranormal, as you wont. Sincerely dissapointed !

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money July 7 2009
By Texas Redhead - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a waste of pixels! This book is very short and riddled with errors of grammar and syntax. In fact, one sentence is given twice in a row! These are stale old tales of the supernatural but with very little description of how the Warrens treated the situation or what the ultimate outcome was. Highly disappointing. If I could get it only one-fourth of a star, I would.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected at all May 26 2010
By Eastern Shores of Beauty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am extremely disappointed in this book. "Deliver Us From Evil: True Cases of Haunted Houses and Demonic Attacks" by J.F. Sawyer is not only a waste of time, it is also a waste of money. The cases were taken from the files of Ed & Lorraine Warren, but I doubt those files were as poorly written as this book has been.
#1. Many of us have memories of an outer-space tv program, where the captain (with spacey sounding music in the background) telling his "captain's log" of the new adventure that would begin soon. That is the exact "captain's log" & music I remembered as I read the Introduction!
#2. The Foreword, by Ed Warren, was the best part of the entire book. He had obviously written an outline, prepared his thoughts carefully, and wrote intelligently on his beliefs. I am a believer of the supernatural. I was not reading this book to de-ride his, or anyone elses' beliefs. Ed most likely had his material proofread. One may presume that a good writer would have his material proofread by another.
#3. I am not sure that J.F. Sawyer was looking to do anything else, but make money off the careers of two well-respected people in their field. I personally felt that the "stories" written by J.F.Sawyer were below 6th grade essays that I've read in the past. Even a "case file" would need to be outlined, "beefing up the story" as a former professor of mine said constantly. One of the early stories consists of 4 2/3 pages. The story simply gives the reader bare bones information about a possession. There is no mention of interventions, prayers or practices to rid one of a malevolent being attempting to possess another. Zip, nada, nothing. The author says, "Earthbound by her violent end [...] take over her wonderful and weak cousin?"
#4. The best story written by Sawyer is called, "The Voodoo Doll." The story was written well and I believe the author put more work into this particular story. He "fleshed it out" & beefed it up", causing me to feel that he had actually put some thought and interest into the Dolls.
#5. The very best story is the last chapter, written by Betty Joan Burr. Many will recognize the story. It is told well, concise, with both an introductory paragraph and an ending paragraph.
#6. It is sad, that out of 143 pages, the first 5 pages include: 2 blank; The title page, title w/author's name; acknowledgement of Ed & Lorraine Warren, and printer's name; copyright and acknowledgement again of Ed & Lorraine & Ed's pictures compose the other 3! I don't know about anyone else, but I usually find these pages numbered as ii, iii, iv, etc..
#7. Save your money. Buy a book written by the Warrens themselves or a reputable author. This one stinks, especially at the price!

I almost did not purchase this book because of some reviews. But I idolize Ed and Lorraine Warren so much and then had the thought maybe there is more to this. Maybe something doesn't want me to gain knowledge from these wonderful people. So glad I read it!
