Once upon a time, Michael had a great career and a wonderful family-until his sudden death. Worse yet, when he arrived at the pearly gates, he was denied entrance. Now, given the chance to redeem himself as a Guardian Angel, Michael intervenes in the lives of people who are in peril. Winter is pounding its way through Indianapolis, and trouble for Michael follows swiftly on the howling winds. A serial killer has just taken the life of another homeless victim, and One-eyed Bob, Michael's closest friend in the homeless community, has gone missing, putting everyone on edge and uncertain of who to trust. Meanwhile, as the bad economy takes its toll, the shelter director, Pastor Steve, is forced to partner with another congregation to keep the refuge open. As tension, drama, and the threat of a killer on the loose hang like a dark cloud over the shelter, Michael soon discovers he has another problem: the demon he defeated over a year ago may be back to seek revenge. In this continuing series, a Guardian Angel on a journey of redemption must find his homeless friend before a serial killer strikes again and his demonic nemesis satisfies his grudge.
Stories of contemporary exorcisms are largely met with ridicule, or even hostility. Sean McCloud argues, however, that there are important themes to consider within these narratives of seemingly well-adjusted people who attend school, go shopping, watch movies, and also happen to fight demons. American Possessions examines Third Wave spiritual warfare, a late twentieth-, early twenty-first century movement of evangelicals focused on banishing demons from human bodies, material objects, land, regions, political parties, and nation states. While Third Wave beliefs may seem far removed from what many scholars view as mainstream religious practice, McCloud argues that the movement provides an ideal case study for identifying some of the most prominent tropes within the contemporary American religious landscape. Drawing on interviews, television shows, documentaries, websites, and dozens of spiritual warfare handbooks, McCloud examines Third Wave practices such deliverance rituals (a uniquely Protestant form of exorcism), spiritual housekeeping (the removal of demons from everyday objects), and spiritual mapping (searching for the demonic in the physical landscape). Demons, he shows, are the central fact of life in the Third Wave imagination. McCloud provides the first book-length study of this influential movement, highlighting the important ways that it reflects and diverts from the larger, neo-liberal culture from which it originates.
