Book Tour GIVEAWAY! Thank you @thomasnelson @tlcbooktours for my gifted copy of ‘Playing With Fire: A Modern Investigation into Demons, Exorcism & Ghosts’ by Billy Hallowell! (pub 9/8)
Q: (*said in a GhostFace from ‘Scream’ voice) “What’s your favorite scary movie? (***see end of blog post for my answer.)
This is best time of year to read thrillers & watch scary movies, yes, but here’s a non-fiction book about our fascination w/ the Other Side.
Join investigative reporter Billy Hallowell (yes, his name is SO close to the word HALLOWEEN! Cool coincidence, eh?) as he delves into the strange phenomena of supernatural activity. Themes of demonic possession, exorcism, & ghosts have overtaken Hollywood, with countless films & TV shows delving into the age-old struggle against evil. But the question is why?
Even with so much focus on the topic, there seems to be very little public knowledge & discussion about the theology & real-life claims surrounding demons. Quite often, many people remain silent about their experiences or resort to quietly whispering about what they’ve seen, heard, or felt for fear of being labeled as crazy. The truth is, even pastors, priests, & clergy who have observed firsthand accounts of possession & deliverance can succumb to the strange & terrifying effects of intense spiritual warfare.
For people of faith, ‘Playing with Fire’ addresses these core questions:
Are demons active today?
If they do indeed exist, what are they? Fallen angels? Nephilim?
Can demons inhabit human beings?
According to the Bible, can people die & remain behind as “ghosts”?
‘Playing with Fire’ explores the theological underpinnings surrounding the supernatural. Relying on firsthand accounts, newspaper reports, & Christian experts, Hallowell takes readers through the various views & perspectives surrounding supernatural activity.
This faith-based book looks at society’s obsession w/ demons, exorcisms & ghosts & why we either believe or don’t believe in them. Hallowell lays it all out for us w/ facts vs. fiction in an easy to read, insightful, thought-provoking, Christian perspective way.

(Oh, & my favorite scary movie is ‘The Descent’… I am claustrophobic & dislike the dark & creepy creatures very much, so this movie terrified me.)
