Books in News – The Godmen by Luke Johnson is Hilarious, Shocking and Relevant

Published by Leadstart, The Godmen by Luke Johnson is a very interesting book with a good amount of literary flair. Broadly putting, the book reveals shocking yet uncomfortable truth about untoward spiritual practices and possessions, exorcism, and mocks science and medicine as so far this field has remained oblivion to godmen and their bizarre practices.

The book has a solid introduction, right there it doesn’t forget to impress the readers. It talks about Toona, godmen, exorcists, tantriks and many more. When we discuss godmen invariably the concept of black magic surfaces automatically. Hardly there is any country that is exception to black magic. In India, it is way rampant. Thus, the author has involved a few stories from the Indian land as well. The irony is that how can godmen heal a person by setting up a connection with god, while on the other hand advanced science and doctors fail to do. Science and godmen are never in the same direction. As the book chugs ahead, there become two broad categories: one is when a man feeds demon, and in the other case a demon gets attached. This difference is so wide that it separates godmen from an exorcist i.e. in Hindi we call it Tantrik.

The tone of the book brims with sarcasm, wit, and fun. The author must have delved deep into this field for writing such a short yet hilarious book. It is a well-written and well-edited and nicely patched up work by Luke Johnson. If you have deep roots in the society and heed on jadoo-toona gossip, you will surely find this book fantastic. Just by reading a few pages, it was clear that Luke Johnson is a high caliber author. He may come up with some good and intense novels in the near future.
