You have never understood Spiritual Warfare until you read this book. It is set up in fictional drama, but not so. This is real and alive today. I have a better and more in depth understanding for the vital need for prayer and what goes on in the heavenlies.

This book opened my eyes to the activities in the spirit realm as nothing else has. I was completely spellbound from begining to end. This book has made a wonderful difference in my life and my husband's as well. Frank Peretti is an anointed man of God! It's good to know that in the, God wins!

A great way to understand the seen and the unseen, the good and evil in people and yourself. If you're not a Christian you might want to rethink that choice after this.

This is an excellent, gripping book that grabbed me by the end of the first page. It flowed as well as any Steven King book I've read, but with a deeper more relevant meaning. I was driven to find out how things would end, so I had a very hard time putting the book down. It provided the same excitment, if not more, as a blockbuster action movie. A must read for any person of faith.

Never before has it been made so clear that we are in a spiritual battle all the time, whether we are aware of the battle or not. This book, next to the Bible could not paint a more perfect picture of spiritual warfare. It is a must read for every 'True Christian!'

This book was one of the best I had ever read. When people first told me about Frank Peretti's books, I was a little skeptical. I thought that the topics would leave me with nightmares or being afraid no matter where I was by putting a face to the spiritual warfare that occurs all around us every day. I was wrong. This book became one of my favorites a few chapters in! Peretti's writing style is phenomenal. He puts everyday occurrences into perspective in a HUGE way! The plot becomes very dramatic, very thick, but he never loses the reader. Every little thing ties together in a way that is readily understandable and very deep. This book is one of the most spiritual I have read! Strongly recommended!

The first 2 chapters were somewhat spooky, but then the story begins to come to together. This book will open your eyes as to what is really going on the world today and you'll be changed forever. The truth will set you free.

I am new to the Christian fiction genre and have recently been reading Ted Dekker novels. I was blown away by my second Frank Peretti novel, This Present Darkness. This books paints the picture so well for Christians in understanding spiritual warfare. This book is an inspiring wake-up call, and is an all and all wonderful book.

This book is wonderful. It teaches you about the power of prayer. It shows us that our warfare is not against each other, but the PRESENT DARKNESS.

This book is amazing. I'm a forteen year-old Christian. Lately, life's been tough. This book has really opened my eyes to several truths. The novel is about a struggling minister and a newspaper reporter. As the book unwinds, we see that angels and demons are fighting over the souls of the townspeople where these main characters live. Going through a tough time, it helps me realize that God cares, and he wants to help me. A highly-effective novel,'This Present Darkness' really kept me interested and blessed my soul, all at the same time.

This was one the best books I have ever read. My Pastor recommended that the congregation read it to give us a better insight of the power of prayer. Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down! The battle between angels and demons was great and backed up by scripture. Even though this book is fiction, I understood the importance of prayer for Christians. I would highly recommend that anyone struggling in their prayer life read this book!

Awesome. Just awesome. This Present Darkness is an amazing and thrilling description of spiritual warfare. It shows how the battle between God's and Satan's forces is waged. It also shows the importance and power of prayer. This book has shown me many critical things that I can put into practice. Hurrah for Frank Peretti!

This book has opened my eyes to spiritual warfare. Now its so much easier to have an idea of what to pray for when combating the powers of darkness. It also helped me understand how Satan controls the daily affairs of our world. I pray that all readers would get a chance to see the incomparable power at our (christians)disposal if we remain holy.

No book has ever affected me as profoundly as this one. You don't just read about spiritual warfare in this book, you actually experience it. If this doesn't make you more diligent in your prayer life, nothing will. Everyone I recommended it to agrees that it is a definate 'must read'.

This was a great book! I couldn't put it down! This book made me realize that there are angels and demons in every room with you and to be careful with the path you choose. I know whose side I'm on!

I loved this book. I bought this book along with Piercing the Darkness and read them back to back. The battle between the angels and the demons is exceptionally brilliant. This fiction book effected the way I see everyday events in a whole new light.

I loved this book. It was written brilliantly.I read it when I was seventeen, and finished it in two days flat, and have continued to reread it over the last few years. The characters in the book come alive,and you feel like you know them personally.

This book is my favorite book next to the Bible! It puts things into perspective. I have purchased it and given it away several times, just so it would bless someone else like it has me. I am looking at a paperback sitting on my desk and I have to have the ebook for my Nook now that it is out!

Im 15, and i thought this book was amazing. Makes you want to feel closer to the Almighty. I enjoy the concept of how angels change paths unseen.

This work is a thriller of unseen things lurking just beyond human perception. The characters, some human & some spiritual creatures, are quite spellbinding as the plot unfolds. Time is of essence as the heroic characters race to unmask a dangerous conspiracy threatening to spiral out of control created by the antagonists. It is one of Peretti's earlier works that explores a tale of spiritual beings battling each other for control while the humans, unknowingly are caught in the midst of these battles. If you enjoy thrillers, this is one to keep you awake wondering whether there is something beyond our perception.

I guess every other reviewer has pretty much said what I feel about this book but it couldn't be emphasized enough that it is an amazing fast paced story like you have never read. It definitely changes your perspective towards prayer. As a christian I am aware that this book might feel a little "preachy" to those who don't beleive in Christ but I suggest you read it anyway, it's spooky, action packed and interesting! I can guarantee you'll love it!
