“Keep the Pigs Out”—a how-to guide closing the door on Satan and keeping your spiritual house clean


“Keep the Pigs Out” is essential reading for every Christian who truly desires freedom in Christ.  Dickerman explains how we unknowingly give “permission” to demons to enter our lives and some ways may surprise you.  Not only does he tell you how they enter, he also provides a step-by-step way of removing them from your life.  And no, it’s nothing like you see in the movies.  In fact, he advises you to tread carefully so that you don’t unwittingly give them more control.

Having grown up in the Southern Baptist tradition I was surprised to find the author of this book to be an ordained Southern Baptist minister.  Don Dickerman professes to be a conservative Christian and a “pretty normal guy.”  At first, I was skeptical because I’ve not been exposed to his type of teaching about demons and Satan.  In fact, the only exposure I have to the casting out of demons is from movies.

You may find yourself getting bogged down in the details after the first several chapters; however, it is important for you to read until the end because he brings out some very deep biblical truth in the final chapters you shouldn’t miss.  Dickerman uses scripture to back up his beliefs and encourages his readers not to give demons much thought.  Your focus should be on Christ and reading the Bible for it’s by dwelling on Christ and God’s Word that you will break free from Satan’s lies.

If you have found yourself believing Satan’s lies about you or your past, read this book.  If you feel oppressed or depressed, read this book.  The most important thing, as Dickerman points out, is to take care of your own spiritual house before tackling someone else’s or you will be inviting trouble.

Don Dickerman is a graduate of a Baptist seminary and directs an evangelistic ministry to prisons.  He has also written “When Pigs Move In,” explaining how to clean the demonic influences impacting your life and the lives of others.
