Dancing with the Devil by Jeff Harshbarger is a powerful tool for Christians and a weapon against the powers of darkness. After a brief introduction to what the occult is, the book begins by Jeff Harshbarger sharing his testimony of his time in satanism to his full deliverance, giving his life completely to Jesus Christ. After his testimony in chapter one, the rest of the book describes the lives of those who were once in the occult. They share their painful journey through the occult, the torture, the demonic attacks, and all of the difficulties that they faced emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Most importantly, the writers share their incredible stories of deliverance of being completely set free from all of the satanic bondage that they were in.
I came across this book at a local bookstore after praying for a couple of days, "Lord, I really would like a good book on the occult, stories of their deliverance, and how to better minister to those who are bound by the chains of the occult." I had not read any previous book on the occult so, this was my first one and I was not disappointed at all. I'm currently 21 years old and I am a very avid reader. I read literally all the time and I know an excellent book when I read one. This book excels excellence, it is phenomenal. Dancing with the Devil is one of the most powerful books I've read. Not only are the testimonies beyond encouraging and powerful, the writers share practically how to help minister to those who are in the lifestyle of the occult.
Harshbarger's book has helped open my eyes to the lives of those who have been in the occult and their incredible journey to deliverance. As I was reading, I could do nothing but cry from the beginning to the end. You may be wondering, "Why would you be crying? It's just a book. You're a 21 year old guy anyway, why would you be crying?" While reading, Holy Spirit began to break my heart for those under the darkness of the occult. This book helped me see what love looks like. This is more than just a book. This is a weapon against the powers of darkness. This is a tool for every Christian to have under their belt to help love the hurt and the broken into the Kingdom. I HIGHLY suggest purchasing this book!!! In fact, buy a few copies and give them to your friends and family. Everyone needs to read what is contained within the pages of Dancing with the Devil. You will not be disappointed.
