by Larry W. Bryant
This book-length retrospective essay retraces the tribulations and survival heroics of the late United Methodist minister Carroll E. Jay, whose practice of hypnotherapy in pastoral counseling sessions engendered fierce religion-based persecution from his own parishioners in Rockingham County, Va., back in the early seventies. When Pastor Jay went public with an account of his wife's series of hypnotic regressions to determine the origin of a disembodied soul speaking through her, he and she incurred almost unbearable harassment orchestrated in the mountain town of Elkton.
