Invoking the name of Jesus has also been known to be powerful in driving away evil spirits and jinn.

The answer above quotes a lot of INNOVATED hadith. In Islam using a talisman is forbidden, it's disbelief as you are seeking protection from a created object. Hadiths are classified scientifically according to their authenticity, on studying the chain, if there is any breakage in the chain, if there are any liers in the chain etc. Some hadiths are proven innovated and these are such. It's amazing that some one would call themselves scholar and lie about Islam. Any scholar in Islam would always condemn talisman and such evil practices of disbelief.
