The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist by Matt BaglioABOUT THIS BOOK In The Rite, journalist Matt Baglio uses the astonishing story of one American priests training as an exorcist to reveal that the phenomena of possession, demons, the Devil, and exorcism are not merely a remnant of the archaic past, but remain a fearsome power in many peoples lives even today.

The Rite provides fascinating vignettes from the lives of exorcists and people possessed by demons, including firsthand accounts of exorcists at work casting out demons, culminating in Father Garys own confrontations with the Devil.

Written with an investigative eye that will captivate both skeptics and believers alike, The Rite shows that the truth about demonic possession is not only st
