Beyond Extraordinary Ep. 24 – Deliver Us From Evil with Ralph Sarchie
For NYPD Sergeant Ralph Sarchie, crime and violence were a regular occurrence. Working in one of the most dangerous precincts in New York, he had seen his fair share of human evil and depravity. But what he did not know as he entered his career as a police officer, is that he would one day face something far more sinister than a fleshly perpetrator.
In his book Beware the Night (now available under the name http://www.lifewelive4.com/), Ralph Sarchie chronicles his life as a tough street cop who would eventually moonlight as a demonologist, engaging in battle against humanity’s most ancient foes. So riveting is Ralph’s story, that is was recently adapted into a major motion picture produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.
The new film we do your assignment stars Eric Bana as Ralph Sarchie and was directed by Scott Derrickson. The film also stars Joel McHale, Édgar Ramírez and Olivia Munn. Sarchie participated in the production of the film, working as an adviser on the set. The film is a dramatization of Ralph’s personal story, but it accurately portrays his tale of cop turned demonologist.
Upon learning about the film and looking into the facts about the story, I was deeply intrigued and eager to try to talk to the real Ralph Sarchie about his experiences. I did a bit of research and tracked him down, and to my delight he agreed to speak to the Beyond Extraordinary audience.
I discovered that while he certainly has a tough exterior, he is actually a very gentle soul.. very sincere and intelligent, with an incredible story to tell.
In the introduction to this episode, I read a few emails from the Extraordinary Mailbag, share my appreciation for all of your prayers for my family during our recent struggles, and I may or may not speak a bit of Latin…. and Swahili. You won’t want to miss this episode!
