The Book

NB:  The book now has the nihil obstat and is awaiting the Imprimatur.

The Second Edition of Slaying Dragons: What Exorcists See & What We Should Know brings many enhancements to the first edition, which had been released in March of 2019 and was available for several months before the revision process was initiated.

In addition to the numerous exorcists now cited, the Second Edition incorporates the wisdom of many of the great saints and Doctors of the Church, such as:

St. Thomas Aquinas
St. Louis de Montfort
St. Alphonsus Liguori
St. Francis de Sales
St. Bernard of Clairvaux
St. Therese of Lisieux
St. Teresa of Avila
St. John of the Cross
St. Pio of Pietrelcina
St. Bridget of Sweden
St. Bonaventure
St. John Damascene
St. Augustine
St. Bede
St. Bernadette
St. Raphael the Archangel
St. Gregory Nazianzus
St. Rose of Lima
St. John Chrysostom

Of course, some of these saints are featured more extensively than others.  St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Louis de Montfort, and St. Alphonsus Liguori, for example, all enjoy a heavy presence in the book.

At the end of each Chapter there is also now a very helpful summary section.  The amount of important material in the book is so much that we realized there needed to be reminders and summaries to help the reader remember and easily return to all of the insightful teachings of the exorcists.

Finally, the book has now received the Nihil Obstat!  The imprimatur will be granted soon.  As noted below, the book has already been reviewed by several exorcists.

A Note on the First Edition v. the Second Edition

The principal change in the Second Edition is that the book no longer relies solely on the teachings of Fr. Chad Ripperger.  The Second Edition book keeps the same structure, including Chapter titles, of the first edition, but incorporates and integrates the teachings of around twelve exorcists.  All of the topics from the first edition are present in the Second, but they are presented with a greater breadth and depth.  When the author designed the first edition, it was done after diving into countless hours of Fr. Ripperger's conferences.  Those teachings were then arranged into the major overarching topics (Chapters).  The Second Edition keeps this structure but, by adjusting the style of presenting Fr. Ripperger's teachings, and incorporating the teachings of many more sources, brings the text into compliance with the fair use of the intellectual property of all involved.

While the first edition was read and enjoyed by countless priests and laymen, the Second Edition has also been reviewed and supported by a few exorcists already.   About twelve more exorcist-reviews are expected before long.
