DEMON POSSESSION AND ALLIED THEMES-J.L.NEVIUS-1894

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

John Livingston Nevius worked as a missionary in China from 1854 to 1893. It is from this work that the majority of the content of this book is taken from. As Nevius tells it, the spread of Christianity in China entailed the clashing of it with age old spirit worship. It was because of this that demon manifestations occurred. Each story he collected was from Chinese Christian converts who took on the burdon of ministry in their own towns.

Having no bias against supernaturalism, Nevius' conclusion on the subject was in favor of where testimony evidenced, namely towards the existence of intelligent, evil beings capable of controlling a human body.
Nevius' book offers a unique insight into the history of demon possession (however you interpret that) as it relates to China and Christian ministry, specifically in the Protestant Churches. I therefore highly recommend it.
