The ministry of casting out demons is either entirely dismissed on one hand or misused and abused on the other. A closed-system natural worldview utterly rejects the notion of a spirit world with spirit beings. To the other extreme, some shortsighted deliverance ministries reject the validity of the health professions and identify every problem in the life of the believer as demonic. The theology of these ministries fails to account for the power of the cross and its daily application in the life of the believer as the normal way in which God delivers from sin and evil. All challenges in the life of the believer do not necessitate a deliverance session. Unleashed is a book that offers a balanced perspective on these matters, including an instrument that can be used to assist in discerning the probable need for deliverance. The C1-13 instrument is revolutionary, transcending the usual inventories by applying variables that are key factors to differentiating degrees of demonic influence. The instrument is also distinct due to its integrative approach that cross-references the work of other professional fields to arrive at a comprehensive picture of the problem and thus a more extensive and effective treatment. ""Dr. Bellini wants to help us to believe in demons and then to be able to determine whether they are present in any given situation. These are important questions for those who seek wholeness and freedom for themselves and understanding for those in ministry. He goes after understanding with the precision of a scientist who takes nothing for granted. Those in ministry where demonization is a possibility can gain much from this book."" --Charles H. Kraft, Professor Emeritus, Fuller School of Intercultural Studies ""In his brand new release entitled Unleashed , Dr. Peter Bellini, from his own research and total life experience, lays the groundwork for a scholarly and sound, effective approach to the integration of the spiritual and the psychological, in addressing the demonic. With all the abuse that has taken place in many circles regarding what is referred to as 'deliverance ministry', Unleashed is a gift to the saints."" --Mark J. Chironna, Church On The Living Edge, Mark Chironna Ministries, Longwood, Florida ""For those on the fence regarding the existence of demons, Dr. Bellini's chapters on the theological background and supernatural worldview of demons are required reading. . . . Overall it is an amazingly balanced book offering a deliverance ministry model that doesn't myopically focus on deliverance solely, but upon complete restoration and wholeness. Sometimes that wholeness happens only through deliverance ministry, more often through the normal means of grace, and sometimes--without apology--through the insights from the medical fields."" --Randy Clark, Overseer of the Apostolic Network of Global Awakening, Founder of Global Awakening ""Pete Bellini is the real thing He is not an armchair theologian who talks about spiritual warfare from a safe distance. His theology has been radically shaped by his time in the trenches fighting evil supernaturalism."" --William. P.
