In The Rite, journalist Matt Baglio uses the astonishing story of one American priest's training as an exorcist to reveal that the phenomena of possession, demons, the Devil, and exorcism are not merely a remnant of the archaic past, but remain a fearsome power in many people's lives even today.

Fr. Gary Thomas was a parish priest in California when he was asked by his bishop to travel to Rome for training in the rite of exorcism. Though initially surprised, and slightly reluctant, he enrolled in an exorcism course at a Vatican-affiliated university, which taught him how to distinguish between a genuine possession and mental illness. Eventually he would go on to participate in more than eighty exorcisms. His experiences profoundly changed the way he viewed the spiritual world as he saw the battle between good and evil in a whole new light. Journalist Matt Baglio had full access to Father Gary over the course of his training, and much of what he learned defies explanation.

Written with an investigative eye that will captivate both skeptics and believers alike, The Rite shows that the truth about demonic possession is not only stranger than fiction, but also far more chilling.

"A wake-up call. It smashes the many myths created by Hollywood movies and other amateurs on the subject about exorcism and the role of the exorcist in the Catholic Church."
-Father Basil Cole, O.P., Dominican House of Studies, Washington, D.C.

"The Rite is in my opinion one of the best books ever written on the topic of exorcism."
-Fr. José Antonio Fortea, Author of Interview With an Exorcist

"What sets Baglio's book apart from many other contemporary works on the same subject is its sober, measured tone and steady refusal to sensationalize the subject."
-Amy Welborn
