This book is an easy read, and it has far more stories and details than the movie. The author, Sergeant Ralph Sarchie, guilds the reader into his world of the "Work" of demons, ghosts, and spirits. Also, he uses his police background to interview people who have been attacked by the spirits, while using his Roman Catholic faith to support the priest during his investigations.
I loved reading the book, while using his stories, to reinforce to my faith, while finding finding God's peace in myself and others. Overall, I found that the sergeant used his cop skills to investigate the paranormal. The negative reviews for this book seem to come from people looking for the movie version of The Exorcist. This is not Hollywood. It's not terror in a conventional sense. If you want to be scared, unless you have a good imagination to really understand how slow and insidious these kinds of encounters can be, this book is going to disappoint.

It is not a horror novel nor is it the story the movie was based on. These practices are even more to be condemned when accompanied by the intention of harming someone, or when they have recourse to the intervention of demons. Wearing charms is also reprehensible. Spiritism often implies divination or magical practices; the Church for her part warns the faithful against it.
Recourse to so-called traditional cures does not justify either the invocation of evil powers or the exploitation of another's credulity. So not only is Sarchie not in communion with the Catholic Church, he is not in communion with the church of Father Amorth, the Rome exorcist he cites in one section of his book. He also uses mediums which is strictly forbidden in most Protestant Christian denominations and not just the Roman Catholic Church.
If he truly is a Tradionalist, I wonder what his Bishops think about this?
Of course, New York has been known for being a permissive diocese no matter who you are. Look, if you are looking for books on the Catholic Teachings on Excorcisms or real excorcists consider reading Matt Baglio's book The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist. It is about Father Gary Thomas, an excorcist in California.
Gabriele Amorth is the Chief Exorcist of Rome. He has performed hundreds of exorcisms over many years. Jul 05, John rated it liked it Shelves: That movie was so ridiculously over-the-top that I was dying to know in what way it could have possibly been "inspired by real events. The degree to which you enjoy it will depend on how highly you rate the author's credibility. People just looking for something fun and scary will find it too preachy; those approaching it from a religious standpoint will likely be repulsed by Sarchie's unconventional theology and abrasive personality.
Personally, I believe demon possession is a very real phenomenon. I am open to the possibility that the book's descriptions of certain supernatural events are at least partially based in fact. But that's as far as I go. Sarchie seems to be writing in earnest, but provides no corroborating evidence for anything.
Conveniently, he is of the opinion that video footage of performed exorcisms should by-and-large be suppressed to prevent giving the demons added exposure. However, on YouTube there is a fifteen-minute documentary on Sarchie filmed as a DVD extra, I'm assuming in which he goes toe-to-toe with a woman who I would say is either demon possessed or a pretty good actress.
I'll let you determine which. So far, Sarchie seems to have avoided any outright allegations of fraud. However, he got his start thanks to Ed and Lorraine Warren, who have credibly been accused of fraud numerous times. Sarchie puts a lot of stock in the Warrens, despite the fact that Lorraine Warren's supposed psychic abilities seem to fly in the face of Biblical admonitions not to become involved with divination and mediums.
Sarchie's own theology often strikes me as very suspect, starting with the fact that he believes in ghosts but not poltergeists--there's a difference. He also believes in nature spirits, human auras which he claims to be able to occasionally see , and other New Age-sounding concepts. You'd be a fool not to question the majority of his assertations, especially since he later admits that "demonology" is solely based on trial and error, anyway. Furthermore, since I'm not a Catholic, I can't help but wonder about the advisability of using Holy water and blessed salt when performing exorcisms.
Sorry, but I couldn't help but chuckle when Sarchie's partner sprinkled Holy water on the telephone after being contacted by someone he believed possessed by an evil spirit. He is a devout Christian and believes that everything happens for a reason, Gods reason. According to Ralph people become possessed from dabbling in black arts, being the victims of evil curses but mostly because it's "Gods will". Ralph reckons that what happens to these people brings them closer to god but I'm not so sure..

I am one of those people who believed that these cases of demonic possession were actually mental health issues. When you read of cases like annaliese michel you'd have to wonder if she would had survived if the right people had intervened. At least in this book Sarchie admits that the majority of people claiming to be possessed are suffering mentally and he does urge them to seek medical help.
Sp your probably wondering if this book is preachy? Well yes, it is. As much as Sarchie tries not to be he even states so several times his ideals form the basis for all his opinions. The only way to avoid being possessed is to be a devout believer and go to church weekly and pray daily and if you don't your screwed! The writing itself isn't great I have to say.
It's very repetitive and the pacing is sluggish for for the most part. Personally I didn't take the religious aspects too seriously and enjoyed the book for what it was: I actually had to stop reading it at night because it was freaking me out! Jun 15, Liz Bot rated it liked it. Worth it, but be warned: Sarchie attempts to put the fear of God into the reader by delivering homily at the end of every chapter or as often as he can sneak in a little sermon, but he really doesn't care if you don't believe in God.
Stylistically, this book is Worth it, but be warned: Stylistically, this book is a mess. The writing is only marginally better than what you might expect to find in a first-year creative writing course; in particular, Sarchie refuses to include footnotes and instead frequently digresses right in the middle of a page using italics to ensure that you know he's on a tangent. He overuses phrases, repeats ideas, and relates information that has no discernible relation to the subject of a story. All this with a co-author who seems to be equally as incompetent a writer. So why am I still reading this book?
I've been largely skipping any portion of hyper-religious lecturing and sticking to the stories, which are very eerie.
Beware the Night
It's entertaining and easy. What he absolutely lacks in prose Sarchie makes up for in the details he includes. It's really like listening to the DARE cop come and tell you horror stories about drug use: I expect that the movie will be better. Jun 25, Rob rated it did not like it. It started out quite terrifying, and had my attention for quite a while. Sarchie does revere and reference people who have been proven as frauds the Warrens , so, I am not sure how credible his stories are. I was listening to this, not reading it, so, I did not pick up on its repetitive nature until I listened to it on a small road trip.

I kept zoning out and saying, "He just said all of this in the last chapter. Overall this book is pretty boring. I wanted more details of the cases and less of his opinions on religion. Also, I listened to the audio version. The narrator generally spoke in a monotone which did nothing to improve the experience. Starter strong- but very repetitive and it very cohesive. Ideas were all over the place and didn't tend to flow with the story as needed. I enjoy the topic and subject, but this isn't the book to scratch that itch.
May 03, Carol rated it liked it Shelves: Ralph Sarchie is a New York City police officer who, on his time off, assist in exorcisms of demons from people and homes. He is tough and opinionated and sometimes arrogant but a devout Catholic who wants to help and there are very few people who are suitable for what he calls, "The Work".
A lot of priest don't even believe in the devil so they will not do exorcisms. He tells us the signs of classic demon possession and how it is different from mental illness. He warns the reader to stay away f Ralph Sarchie is a New York City police officer who, on his time off, assist in exorcisms of demons from people and homes. He warns the reader to stay away from Ouija boards, Tarot Cards and other forms of black magic as they are a gateway for demons.
The book documents various cases of demon possession in individuals and homes which are different that ghost hauntings. Cases range from partial possession, people who moved into homes next to cemeteries, landlords who rented to Satanist and a painter who undergoes numerous attempts at exorcisms to release the demon inside him. Demons posses great strength and can move large heavy objects, like turning a wash machine around. They absorb energy and drop the temperature of the room they are in. They can assume a partial human form but with some abnormality.
They can be a bright ball of light or a dark shadow. And they can call you on the phone and pretend to be a dead loved one. But they will never say "I love you". Ask them to do this if there is any doubt. They know about your past and use that information to form a bond and fill you with self doubt, misery and terror to pave the way to possession. Equipped with his gear, relic of the Holy Cross, holy water and salt and plenty of prayers, he goes to homes and attempts to drive out the demons that plagues these individuals and families. He finds the families huddled together in their living room because they are too afraid to be alone in their own home.
Sometimes the exorcism works and sometimes not. But he warns that anyone interested in this type of work will have demons coming after them in their own home and this work is not for anyone who is not devout and strong willed. Made for an interesting read but a bit repetitive. Jul 24, Jaime Contreras rated it liked it Shelves: This is the professionally written account of the life retired NYPD sergeant, Ralph Sarchie's entry into the world of demonology.
The book takes the reader on a ride into the personal life and experiences of a police officer who found himself pulled into the occult and world of the Catholic Rite of Exorcism. Sarchie is a devout Catholic practitioner and is presented as a skeptic at first to a believer and exorcism minister in the end.
His experiences and several specific cases are documented her This is the professionally written account of the life retired NYPD sergeant, Ralph Sarchie's entry into the world of demonology. His experiences and several specific cases are documented here by Lisa Collier Cool. Sarchie's take is a purely Catholic one in that he is committed to a ritualistic rite of exorcism and traditional approach to the reality of demonic possession. His experience and voice is an important one in the world of spiritual warfare because he speaks the truth and acknowledges that demonic forces are at work today.
It pulls no punches in describing what he witnessed as a beat officer in NYC. It is an honest account of refound faith although legalistic at times and the acknowledgement of the need to spiritually free victims of demonic possession. His street approach to this world is engaging.

On a side note, the book presents a cleaned-up and sanitized version of Sarchie who in real life drops curse words and uses foul language in abundance. He is an everyday layman, flawed but with a good heart and intentions. While, I am a demonologist like Mr. Sarchie, I am not a believer that a scripted deliverance is the only way to deliver people from demonic possession.
Still, I do encourage students of demonology to read the life experience of an important demonologist. Jul 17, Dani W rated it it was ok. This book is definitely scary and has shaken me up while I've read it. Ralph Sarchie is a diehard Catholic and really pushes his beliefs throughout the book. However, he pushes them because he genuinely believes them. I had to trick myself into thinking this was a work of fiction just to help me sleep through the night which I didn't, btw. I didn't find his zealousness annoying. In fact, it has made me question my own lack of belief although you won't see me being reborn any time soon.
Now, w This book is definitely scary and has shaken me up while I've read it. Now, why 2 stars? The book felt forced. The publisher must have required pages, because the story was dragged out. There were so many tangents built off of tangents that it was hard to keep track of where I was in the story.
The book could probably be condensed down to pages if you took out all of the gunk The writing is very redundant. Alright, I get it. You were a New York City cop so you approach each case like a cop. Oh, and what was that? I had forgotten since you just wrote about that 2 pages ago. No one else could see her, but Dominick says she began speaking through his wife. In the days that follow, Gabby says she saw the ghost of her father — a claim her 5-year-old son eventually echoes.
The claims go on: Books flung at the walls, "moans and growls" from the basement, the word "HELP" written backward on the bathroom mirror. In one particularly nasty aside, Sarchie interprets the description of a furry-looking creature as an incubus intent on raping Dominick and Gabby's daughter Luciana. When Gabby eventually becomes possessed by the demon while Sarchie and his partner are in the residence, he concludes that they are "in the presence of one of hell's most dangerous devils" and relies on the name of Jesus Christ to draw it out again.
Sarchie has an explanation for everything that happens. The demon originally appeared in a cloud of smoke because demons "always give themselves away with some abnormality of appearance. He never seriously entertains the idea that all of this has a non-supernatural natural explanation. The closest he comes is when he argues that the doorknobs he heard rattling are "proof that this wasn't a case of mass hysteria, as skeptics might argue.
Mental illness, brain glitches, temporary psychosis, or an out-and-out hoax. I walked away from Beware the Night convinced that Sarchie believes what he's saying — but that doesn't count for much, since everything is filtered through his extremely dogmatic worldview. Unfortunately, objective evidence is far harder to come by. The only video I could find of Sarchie's process — a brief documentary that doubles as PR for the movie, complete with branded hashtag — was far less conclusive than his written stories. A couple describes hearing unexplained "screeching" in the middle of the night a month earlier.
Sarchie and his partner enter the room in question with a few of their customary tools: And I got this pain right here in my temple. And I get that when I'm in the presence of evil.
