As a teacher on deliverance, Neal Lozano knows that many believers struggle with the same sin areas time after time. Yet victory can be as simple as tapping into the potent power of the gospel. By focusing on Jesus and his work, rather than on the intimidating aspects of evil spirits, readers can reset their mindset about their spiritual struggles. In Unbound, Lozano shows readers how to do just this. He also shows them how to find and close any doors they may have opened to evil influence--and, consequently, Satan's underhanded strategies. Balanced and full of hope, Unbound is a practical, thorough, and easy-to-follow guide to deliverance and freedom. It also includes practical instruction on praying for others to be set free.
Do you find yourself struggling with a particular sin or dysfunction over and over again? Do you feel hopeless in finding freedom despite your best efforts? Do you still feel guilty, ashamed, and doomed to repeat a besetting sin, even after receiving the sacrament of Reconciliation? Then you may find a way to spiritual freedom through deliverance prayer. In Resisting the Devil, author Neal Lozano shows that sometimes evil spirits tell us lies that lock us into sins and personal problems. He explains the practice of deliverance, a way of dealing with such demonic influences that is supported by the teaching and tradition of the Catholic Church. Lozano's "Unbound" Model, based on three decades of experience in deliverance ministry, builds a bridge between the sacrament of Reconciliation and exorcism. People only very rarely need exorcism an official ministry of the Church yet can still have difficulty receiving the freedom offered by the sacrament. Deliverance closes this gap. It offers troubled believers a way to get free from the influence of evil spirits. Readers of Resisting the Devil: A Catholic Perspective on Deliverance will [[Learn how to recognize the activity of evil spirits [[See how deliverance from spiritual bondage can be gentle, safe, and effective [[Understand how deliverance differs from exorcism and how deliverance and Reconciliation can work together [[Read the testimonies of women and men who have been freed through deliverance ministry. I am convinced that this book, and the model of deliverance prayer that it describes, are of tremendous importance for the new evangelization. Neal Lozano is one of the pioneers of an approach to deliverance prayer that is simple yet effective, pastorally sound, and fully integrated into the sacramental life of the Church. He shows how this form of prayer, rooted in the New Testament, is a powerful way to experience, and help others experience, the full freedom that Jesus came to give us. Dr. Mary Healy, author of The Gospel of Mark, Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture As founders of Heart of the Father Ministries, Neal Lozano and his wife, Janet, travel both nationally and internationally bringing the message of the "Unbound" Model of deliverance in training seminars and conferences. Neal is the author of the best-selling Unbound: A Practical Guide to Deliverance. The Lozanos have four adult sons and seven grandchildren. They live in eastern Pennsylvania.
When the message of UNBOUND was first published, the life-changing truth of the Five Keys to freedom was carried around the globe. As stories poured in of wondrous deliverances and "captives set free," author Neal Lozano realized the need for a written guidebook to help those who carry the message and ministry of UNBOUND to the far reaches of the world. This UNBOUND Ministry Guidebook builds upon what was written in the second part of UNBOUND and will be an encouragement to all those using the Five Keys to help others. The contents of this book will equip people to serve the Lord in setting captives free- in a way that is reproducible throughout the world. Like the original best-selling UNBOUND: A Practical Guide to Deliverance, this balanced, hopeful book will teach you how to help others find freedom in Christ, focusing upon the Lord and His work in the believer's life, rather than on demons. With loving and wise practical instruction, based on years of experience, the Guidebook assists anyone called to pray for others to be set free.
Discover and Embrace the Extravagant, Unconditional Love of the Father How is it that so many believers get stuck when it comes to entering into a relationship with God the Father? Rather than basking in the Father's endless love, compassion, and delight, we seem to hesitate, like orphaned children unsure of a place to call home. Neal Lozano breaks through the obstacles that keep us from growing in this pivotal relationship. He shatters fear and estrangement in his joyful exploration of Jesus's promise to show us his Father--and ours. It is a heartwarming journey, starting with the universal experience of loss and ending in the Father's welcoming arms as dearly loved children.
In the tradition of such beloved spiritual teachers as Francis MacNutt and Michael Scanlan, Be Healed: A Guide to Encountering the Powerful Love of Jesus in Your Life offers in book form Bob Schuchts's popular program for spiritual, emotional, and physical healing through the power of the Holy Spirit and the sacraments. This renowned program for spiritual restoration is steeped in scripture and the wisdom of the Catholic Church. Deeply intimate and vulnerable about his own journey of healing, Catholic therapist Bob Schuchts connects with his readers by sharing the series of betrayals he endured in high school--his father's infidelity, his parents' divorce, and his older brother's drug addiction--and his subsequent seasons of struggle with God and faith. Be Healed is based on the program first used in dioceses across the United States to form the hearts and minds of Catholic clergy. Schuchts's trusted process for finding inner peace and healing is now expanded to serve the entire body of Christ, helping people recognize their brokenness and find hope in the risen Christ. "In Be Healed, Bob Schuchts takes the reader into the life of a changed man, sharing the story of how he received spiritual, psychological, and emotional healing. Our world, filled with brokenness and suffering, needs to experience the truth of Christ's healing power! Reading this book will begin that encounter with Jesus." Most Reverend Samuel J. Aquila Archbishop of Denver "Be Healed invites the faithful Christian, the newest convert, and the curious reader to consider a new journey with the Lord. With honesty, compassion, and years of experience to aid him, Bob Schuchts brings hope and freedom to confused and fearful hearts. Through personal stories and the Gospel message, he invites us to journey past familiar symptoms into the deeper roots of our wounds. Where we expect the pain of what is known and the fear of the unknown, we find Christ offering healing and wholeness. Be Healed is a unique gift to the Church." Brian Butler Author of Theology of the Body for Teens "Be Healed is an invitation to encounter the Lord as your healer. Bob Schuchts writes with humility and compassion, imparting wisdom gained from a lifetime of discovery of what it means to be whole in Christ and how to invite others to receive God's healing presence. Be Healed will impart wisdom through real life stories, personal journey, and penetrating scriptural stories, all in an authentic Catholic context. Be Healed will open doors for you to look at life from the view of the Lord's passion to see you liberated from those things that hold you back from being the person you were created to be." Neal Lozano Author of Unbound: A Practical Guide to Deliverance "If you have struggled with physical and emotional issues, this book is for you. Be Healed will build hope and expectation that you can receive your healing. It takes a balanced approach to healing in Christ for the whole person and how you can live life to the fullest. Gary Oates Author of Open My Eyes, Lord "This book deeply touched my heart and opened new levels of healing in my life. Whether you are just beginning your healing journey or have been walking this path for years, Be Healed will encourage, enlighten, challenge, and transform you in your encounter with Jesus Christ. I highly recommend it." Sr. Miriam James Heidland, S.O.L.T.

"Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof; only say the word and my servant will be healed." - Matthew 8:8 When we, or a family member or friend, are faced with an injury or illness, physical or emotional, our thoughts turn to God in prayer for healing. We want to believe, as the Centurion did, that God will grant healing, but we wonder. And if we as Catholics have doubts, what does this mean to a hurting world, also in need of healing? In her new book Healing: Bringing God's Gift of Mercy to the World, Mary Healy answers to these questions and more -- Is Jesus still healing people today? Are these healings real and do they last? How do we know if God wants us to pray for healing? Isn't God asking us to endure suffering and hardships instead of asking for healing? How can we pray for healing? Can my broken heart be healed as well as my body? Through the study of Catholic tradition, the lives of the saints, and ordinary people, you'll begin to understand how the message of inward healing is also a message that we as Catholics are empowered to take outward to the world.
When Anna goes to sleep overnight at her grandparents' house for the very first time, she is afraid of the dark, but her grandfather explains that Jesus is with her even when she cannot see, which makes her feel better.
Too often, especially in the church, the subject of homosexuality causes deep misunderstanding and painful rifts. Is it really possible to believe that homosexuals did not choose that lifestyle, and yet maintain biblically that the behavior is sinful? Yes, says author Francis MacNutt, and the prayerful result leads to a new possibility: Jesus Christ can transform the homosexual's orient-ation so that he or she can actually become heterosexual. The striking clarity and practicality of this book will guide the compassionate reader who feels intuitively (and biblically) that homosexuality is wrong but fears being labeled ignorant or "homophobic." And homosexuals who want to change will find that specific prayer brings extraordinary results.

Genre: Church work with families
This is a book about how to effectively pray, Christian prayer, about persistent problems and for healing; all types of healing: physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual. It shows you how what we normally think of as just being our own personal problems in life are in fact deeply rooted familial problems, we only reproduce them with a few personal overtones.We are our families, and our families are us, how can it be otherwise? And therefore, effective prayer for healing most often eludes us as we fail to apply the healing power that the Lord Jesus Christ brought us, to where the problem is rooted, in the family. This happens because we normally think of, and look at, just us, losing the bigger picture, not knowing that we are only a symptom of the problem, a representation, a red dashboard light saying something about the engine, a cog in the wheel of my family; and that it is not a personal problem despite all appearances. Since we think what is going on is our own personal problem, our prayer too follows that pattern, serious falling short of the target. Result: it becomes like a cry in the desert, with no effect! And yet God wants us healed, He constantly sends us healing! But we spend time trying to convince God in prayer to give us what He has already given us: healing, when He sent Jesus Christ! We have little clue that the key is not with God anymore but is right here with us, brought to us by Jesus and left here. We simply don't know how to use it! And thus God laments: My people perish for not knowing (Hosea 4:6)! This book will pull you out of that "not knowing" and lead you step by step to the full benefit that Christ has already brought to you: not only a healed and useful life, but also a joyful one!
