5.0 out of 5 stars Faces the subject head-on with Biblically based teaching.
I found this book very helpful and instructive. I decided from the outset to approach the author's teachings with an open mind. Having closely examined his teachings and the Biblical base upon which they are founded, I can only agree totally with the author. I consider this book to be an absolute 'must read' for anyone looking for true Biblically based teaching on this...

2.0 out of 5 stars Sincere, but is it trustworthy?
In many ways, this book seems useless. If you already accept Prince's personal views on demonic influence and possession, then (from a practical standpoint) this book will add little. And if you're a person who must evaluate the evidence before accepting it, well, you won't find any detailed case studies here to support Prince's claims.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sincere, but is it trustworthy?, 30 Oct 1998
By A Customer
In many ways, this book seems useless. If you already accept Prince's personal views on demonic influence and possession, then (from a practical standpoint) this book will add little. And if you're a person who must evaluate the evidence before accepting it, well, you won't find any detailed case studies here to support Prince's claims.
You'll just have to choose whether or not Prince seems credible, and go from there.
Prince means well, and seems sincere. And, remarkably, his basic theology (which is, in fact, quite basic) seems on the money. Possession occurs because people allow it to, by providing vulnerabilities for demons to exploit. Christians have power over demons only through Christ. We should not try to learn directly from demons, as they will always seek to mislead. We best deal with demons by not having idols in our lives and by obeying God. I was surprised that, at the core, Prince's ideas of Christian life do not deviate from clear simple truth as espoused in the Bible.
Still, the big problem with this book is that Prince offers no means by which to weigh his experiences and testimony. No corroborative evidence is presented, and sometimes Prince's views on the demonic border of ludicrousness. For example, almost every sort of human evil, obsession, andexcess is attributed to direct demonic influence/possession: hate, anger, overreating, smoking, drinking, fear, flatulence, etc. (I'm not kidding! I wouldn't have been surprised to see Prince state, "Last night a demon of urination overcame me, so I went into the bathroom and expelled it.")
Prince even describes the "demon of nicotene" as a real entity, although nicotene did not exist when the angels were created. He immediately senses and casts out the "demon of allergies" from a six-year-old boy who won't eat. There's even the "demon of death" who can be rebuked in any situation. Prince sees little natural order in the world; almost everything is relegated to the demonic. My experiences as a thoughtful and maturing Christian have been much different than his.
The few long testimonies are either totally amazing or utterly fabricated. (One testimony in particular has it all: Although he was a Christian who wept over the souls of the lost, this fellow also did every sort of occult activity, taught obviously occult things to his church fellows without even noticing the discrepancy, was latently homosexual, had transsexual feelings, was obese, violent, angry, etc. Then he had a bunch of demons cast of him, and life returned to normal, praise God!) Prince also talks about how his wife Ruth got laid on hands by the wrong Christian, and a spirit of arthritis passed into her unknowingly, and she had to cast it out. Now we're passing out of the Scripture realm into mysticism, and sincerity only goes so far. It's time for the reader to tread carefully!
Scripture does seem to describe both natural sickness and demonic influence. Christ both healed disease and cast out demons. Prince's testimony is useful for reminding the Christian that demons are real, and can throw their weight behind seemingly innocuous or "natural" weaknesses. They are not to be ignored or forgotten. But seeing a demon behind every evil or weakness is almost psychotic, and ignores the broken nature of man on his own recognizance. Prince seems to pass from imbued vision to sheer fantasy in this book. I plan to get a refund.
For a more credible (although still questionable) account of possession, read Martin's "Hostage to the Devil." This book ain't it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lifechanging, 21 Aug 2013

I have been listening to Derek Prince talks on Christian radio for a couple of years now and also read a couple of his other books. When trying to help a friend who has depression, I remembered that Derek had spoken of his own depression. I put his name, with the word depression into a search engine and found testimonies from people who had read They Shall Expel Demons. Having now read it myself, I would say that it is a life changing approach to healing. I know that what he writes about is genuine. I remember being inspired to reject self-pity, in my own life some years ago and how it caused an instant change in my attitude and a freedom that cannot be described in words. What Derek describes, from year of ministry and his own experience makes so much sense. He explains it in very down to earth terms. This book is now a definite reference in my personal library. Don't be put off by the title...fear is from the enemy!

This review is from: They Shall Expel Demons: What You Need to Know About Demons - Your Invisible Enemies (Paperback)
The book arrived very promptly. It was recommended to me in order to compare and contrast different views on the topic of demons. Derek Prince is a reputable writer of long standing. His title is provocative but I trust he would agree with this: the spirit world exists but we are advised not to engage with it. Only rarely in the west is there need for exorcism as a demon is only able to enter a person if invited. Until recently only a small minority in the west has dappled with the occult. These people have put themselves in the danger zone. (See also Peter Masters on related topics.) The Holy Spirit is the only spirit we can approach with confidence. With Him we are safe; with Him everything is out in the open. "God is light. In Him there is no darkness at all." 1 John 1:5 Once He is in residence through a person turning to Christ evil spirits have to flee. Their powers and their time are limited - be not afraid!

3.0 out of 5 stars Over- the- top on Demonology., 22 Mar 2001
By 
Reverend R. G. Johnson (Oxford, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: They Shall Expel Demons: What You Need to Know About Demons - Your Invisible Enemies (Paperback)
A fairly good book as a general background on the subject of deliverance from demonisation. However I believe that Prince has gone completely over the top and seems to see demons under every conceivable bush. He does not seem capable of recognising sins of the flesh that we are all subjected to,and every human failing, in his terms, comes under the heading of a demon. He appears to have tried to crack a spiritual wallnut with an oversized sledge-hammer.
