About the book

What is our fascination with the other side?

Join investigative reporter Billy Hallowell as he delves into the strange phenomena of supernatural activity. Themes of demonic possession have overtaken Hollywood, with countless films and TV shows delving into the age-old struggle against evil. Why?

Yet, with so much focus on the topic there seems to be very little public knowledge and discussion about the real-life nature and reality of demons.

In many foreign countries, however, supernatural activity is often recorded and discussed

  • Government officials watch a nine-year-old boy walk up a wall
  • A sheriff hears a demonic voice over his radio
  • Doctors witness a child exhibit extra-human strength

It’s no surprise international media took note. Quite often, though, 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 insane or crazy.

The truth is, even pastors, priests, and clergy who have observed firsthand accounts of possession and deliverance can succumb to the strange and terrifying effects of intense spiritual warfare.

For people of faith, Playing with Fire will address these core questions:

  • Are demons active today?
  • If they do, indeed, exist, what are they? Are they fallen angels? Nephilim?
  • Can demons inhabit human beings?
  • If they exist, what can be done to stop them?

Playing with Fire will explore the theological underpinnings surrounding demonic forces. Relying on firsthand accounts, newspaper reports, and Christian experts, Billy Hallowell will take readers through the various views and perspectives surrounding supernatural activity.









My thoughts

Ghosts? Demons? Exorcisms? Well, this certainly is the month to read about them, thats for sure. Pull on your big boy pants and get ready for an in depth look at spiritual warfare from investigative journalist Billy Hallow and prepare yourself for some hair raising case studies that will make you thinks twice about good and evil.

Billy Hallowell takes us into one of the most curious subject there is delving into the topic of the reality of demons and demonic activity in the real world. He takes an interesting perspective on the topic, stripping out the Hollywood hype and getting down to the nitty gritty using a spiritual and Biblical approach. Utilizing real case studies and well documented information from experts, Billy breaks it down using Biblical and Christian perspectives to make a valid explanation that good and evil does exist in this world.

This is one of the most interesting and straight forward books I have ever read. I have always been a skeptic on the subject, even though I have been a Catholic all my life. But Billy takes faith and Christianity and correlates it with the real life documentation of these spirits/demons and makes one heck of a case that all these things might actually be real. In the end, you really need to develop your own opinion, but the author gives you one heck of a starting point to delve into the research yourself. Quite the curious and thought-provoking read. Perfect for the Halloween season.

I just would like to thank Billy Hallowell,, TLC Book Tours and Thomas Nelson Publishing for the gifted copy of this book for my unbiased and honest opinion for review.
