You are probably noticing a lot of the same stories. You might think they should all be word for word. If they were, that would be troubling because these are supposed to be different accounts of the same events. We should see one account focus on one aspect and another account to not even mention that event and focus on a whole different angle. By far, my favorite demon casting story is here at the start of chapter 5. I love the image of these pigs running off the cliff possessed with demons. I can still remember the felt board lesson when I was just knee high to a grass hopper.
