Welcome to Deliverance—a theological and experiential journey in dealing with evil so people can be set free to live as Jesus promised.

“Jon Thompson has become a leading voice on deliverance ministry, especially those of us facing a rise in demonic manifestations in secular cities. Jon has been beyond helpful—wise, experienced, thoughtful, biblical, and deeply prophetic.” –– John Mark Comer, Pastor of Bridgetown Church and author of The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry

“Following on the heels of his dynamite Convergence, Jon Thompson now tackles the huge issue of deliverance. I have read a lot on this subject throughout the fifty years I have been in ministry, but nothing is as comprehensive, as Biblically and theologically thorough, and as practically accessible as Deliverance. Bible-book by Bible-book, Jon leads us through the truth about the ministry of deliverance. And then step-by-step, Jon walks us into the nitty-gritty dynamics of such ministry in the local church. Would that this book had been available the last few decades. Thank God it is available now!” –– Darrell Johnson, Teaching Fellow at Regent College and author of Discipleship on the Edge and The Glory of Preaching

“This is an amazing resource around topics many would rather avoid but which is as real as anything else we face today in ministry. Jon has done a great job laying out the theological/biblical teachings on the demonic and spiritual realm and the practical/pragmatic realities from years of actual on-the-ground practical ministry. This book will serve you so well as a Christian, a leader, or just someone interested in this extremely important topic.” –– Mark Clark, Senior Pastor of Village Church and author of The Problem of God and The Problem of Jesus

Most Christians would agree that we are the only ones on earth equipped to help our family, friends, and neighbours when it comes to supernatural evil. Or at least we say we believe it. We say “yes” intellectually, but when it comes to actually dealing with evil, many of us are afraid and feel out of our depth.

What does the Bible really say about the demonic?
How did Christians deal with this in various cultures over 2000 years?

Do we even need this conversation?

For pastor and theologian, Jon Thompson, this has been a journey more than 20 years in the making as he and his church found themselves working through how to help desperate people and still remain rooted in Scripture.

In this book, Jon will lead you on a journey through the pages of Scripture and the experiences of Christians throughout the centuries as he outlines what has always been universally applicable when dealing with evil and what must be adapted to fit our different churches and cultures.

Topics include:

  • The Scriptural basis for deliverance
  • Deliverance throughout church history
  • An explanation of spiritual authority
  • The role of spiritual gifts in deliverance ministry
  • An evaluation of the five major deliverance models
  • Outline of a mixed model approach to deliverance

No matter our history, theology, bias, pain, or disbelief, we all need to engage in this conversation because there are people all around us who desperately need to be set free to live as Jesus promised.
