 Our Description


Be free from the influence of Evil Spirits.


In Resisting the Devil, author Neal Lozano shows that sometimes evil spirits tell us lies that lock us into sins and personal problems. He explains the practice of deliverance, a way of dealing with such demonic influences that is supported by the teaching and tradition of the Catholic Church.

Lozano's "Unbound" model, based on three decades of experience in deliverance ministry, builds a bridge between the sacrament of Reconciliation and exorcism. People only very rarely need exorcism - an official ministry of the Church - yet can still have difficulty receiving the freedom offered by the sacrament.  Deliverance closes this gap. It offers troubled believers a way to get free from the influence of evil spirits.

Teacher and pastoral counselor, Neal Lozano has been active in ministry for more than 35 years.Neal's ministry is helping people find freedom in Christ. An international speaker, Neal has led seminars and spoken at conferences throughout the world. He and his wife Janet have led outreach missions to Poland, Latvia, Slovakia, Ukraine, Haiti, Turkey, Sudan, Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda.

Neal is the author of four books and has served as the director of Renewal and Reconciliation, an association of churches in the Greater Philadelphia region. Neal, a Roman Catholic, has a master's degree in religious education from Villanova University, where he also led an evangelistic outreach to college students for 18 years. Married since 1973, Neal and Janet have four sons and six grandchildren and reside in Ardmore, Pennsylvania.

This item received 4 stars overall. Good Summary and Background Philosophy

Resisting the Devil by Neal Lozano discusses the reality of evil spirits and their influence in this world, placing this reality in the context of Salvation History. He utilizes a few Old Testament and several Gospel accounts of salvation from demons to make his point.
The author's main point is to demonstrate that the laity have a responsibility as baptized members of the Faithful to stand against evil and to assist in supporting one another in this defense; as well as to play on the offense now and again as well. Every line in the book is entirely realistic, yet also hopeful - evil may be in the world, it may not be an easy fight, but God has already won and it is His plan for us to join Him in heaven.
The book also uses Scripture passages, Church and papal writings throughout. It provides all the background and philosophy for the Unbound Model, providing a few specific points throughout. Only after I was sever Full Review...
