Barnes &
The Devil Called Collect

Never before has there been such a compelling account of demonic possession and deliverance in an Evangelical Christian context.

At two o'clock in the morning on Tuesday, March 11, 1980, Pastor J. Stephen Conn received a long distance, collect telephone call from a young woman desperately pleading for help. Afraid, alone, and deeply involved in witchcraft, all Jessica Leek knew about the man she was calling was that his number had been given to her by a stranger while she was hitch-hiking. As Jessica spoke, numerous demonic voices unexpectedly came from her lips-blaspheming, threatening, and identifying themselves by name.

The unsuspecting pastor had little practical knowledge of demons and no experience in casting them out. Yet, overwhelmed by compassion, he seized this as an opportunity to help a tormented young woman find deliverance and, at the same time, put the reality of God's power to the test.

The story of Jessica's liberation from multiple evil spirits is unlike any other account of an exorcism ever written. The accounts of the hellish manifestations of malevolent spirits through their tortured victim are chilling. Yet, the spiritual warfare ends in victory and leaves the reader with a triumphant affirmation of faith and hope.

MidWest Book Review
Perhaps some would recoil when asked to review a book that tells the story of an exorcism. Like it or not, there is good and evil in our world and often the evil takes souls captive, and they are lost forever. This is the story of one young woman's soul, trapped in the world of the dark Occult, and crying out to be free, battling against forces that would chill even the seasoned worker for the Lord.

Our author, J. Stephen Conn, is a true man of God. One who did not turn his back to the cries of another human being. One who opened his heart,and called upon his God to help free this soul. In this book you will read the story of Jessica. You will travel with her as she battles the forces of darkness that have kept her captive for most of her life. You will see the power and leading of a loving God through Pastor Conn and his friend, Paul, as they refused to lose this precious soul to the dark force within her.
Many read stories like this that are fiction, not realizing that this does indeed happen in our world everyday. It is the story of a battle between light and dark, death and life, winner take all. It is not a pretty story, but is one that has a beautiful ending.
I, for one, know that there are many in our society that face the dark side every day of their lives and often don't know where to turn to for help to escape their bondage. Perhaps this book will be placed in their hands and give them the courage and hope they need to be free. That is my prayer.
This is a sensitive subject, but Pastor Conn has told it with honesty and integrity. Very well done, a book all Christians should read to understand, indeed we do have an enemy, but our God is greater.
"The Devil Called Collect," is the story of a young woman, a woman who was overcome by the dark side of the spiritual world, one who desperately wanted to be free, and her quest at achieving that freedom.

MidWest Book Review

Bible Probe
This is one of those rare gems of literature that actually increase your faith in our awesome Lord Jesus Christ. I'd put it in the same class as truly credible and well documented testimonies to the power of even just the Lord's holy name as was the case of the 1928 Iowa Exorcism. For an awful long time now, only exorcisms by Catholic priests (like the Iowa Exorcism, "Hostage to the Devil" by now deceased Malachi Martin, and "An Exorcist Tells His Story" by Father Gabriele Amorth) were reported. Now, finally, the ministers from the rest of the Lord's Church are telling about their struggles with the demonic.

Pastor J. Stephen Conn's well documented and well written encounter is guaranteed to leave you with a stronger faith and a lasting belief in the supernatural (God) and preternatural (demons and fallen angels). I could not put this excellent book down.
