Overview

The Visitation by Frank E. Peretti, Richard Ferrone

The sleepy, eastern Washington wheat town of Antioch has suddenly become a gateway for the supernatural—from sightings of angels and messianic images to a weeping crucifix. Then a self-proclaimed prophet mysteriously appears with an astounding message.

The national media and the curious all flock to the little town—a great boon for local business but not for Travis Jordan. The burned-out former pastor has been trying to hide his past in Antioch. Now the whole world is headed to his backyard to find the Messiah, and in the process, every spiritual assumption he has ever held will be challenged. The startling secret behind this visitation ultimately pushes one man into a supernatural confrontation that will forever alter the lives of everyone involved.

Awesome book, brings a mondern twist and i believe accurately depicts how a false prophet would be in these times. He does not need to study his Bible again either, for in the Bible it states that the false prophets will decieve with great wonders. In the end, Almighty God still prevailed and the battle against the enemy was won. God is in control of all things and i believe this book portrayed that very well.

Once again a book worth reading with hot chocolate and a blanket. Mr. Peretti puts wonderful color into this small town going mad on a grand scale at the appearance of what many believe to be Jesus himself.

This was the second Frank Peretti book that I read. I read The Oath first, which was incredibly good! So maybe this isn't a fair review. I was kind of disappointed with the book in comparison to The Oath, but I still read it in less than 4 days. I read both books back to back in a week. Frank Peretti has a unique writing style that clarifies how we act and think and how we sin against the Lord. This is a good book in that it shows how blind we can be to spiritual matters and how we are not perfect in discerning good from evil. It's easy to get wrapped up in what we want to see and this book clearly shows that. I thought that it got a little over the top at times, and even thought that it ended rather abruptly. This book was by no means a bad book (it couldn't be with Frank Peretti as the author), but I do have to say that it is my least favorite out of any Peretti book that I have read so far.

This is an awesome book. I have read everything Peretti has written and although it's not what I consider his best, it is none the less captivating. He has brought to life areas that we need to watch out for in our Christian walk; ie: how easy it would be to be taken in by a false prophet.

One of the most anointed books I have ever read. I have come to expect nothing less than the best from Frank Peretti. This is a suspenseful thriller that will captivate your heart and mind and minister to your soul.

I had a difficult time working & sleeping, knowing that this book was waiting for me! Mr. Peretti has done it again--writing a thought provoking tale of church politics, the demons we face, antichrists, and the loving TRUE God that we are all searching for.

Very long. And there are a ton of characters to keep up with. Plus all those flashbacks got confusing. But i love this book! Its exciting and mysterious(:

but Satan CAN heal. you have to remember, he was an ark angel, closer to God then any other angel. And he has demons working for him. 'Sorry Tom!' I'm about halfway through the book now, and I find it thrilling and Biblically acurat. The plot is thrilling and draws you right into the story. It teaches the importance of staying close to God and not being led astray. I highly recommend this book.

This book was great. You people that do not believe the power and ability of the dark fallen angel need to wake Up! Jesus is the answer!

Looking forward to reading this book. I have read the darkness series, House, Illusion, and House. All are great reads. If you like Peretti you may also like Ted Dekker

Satan has power. He tries to imitate God, but only God saves. And one day He will destroy all evil. Jesus wins in the end.

I have read three Frank Peretti books so far and while The Visitation is not my favorite of his, it certainly intrigued me. It starts off slow, much slower and with less suspense than some of his other novels like Monster. You need to push forward to get into the story. There was also a very cynical tone to it about church and religion. In fact, most of the "religious" characters in it are not at all likable people, and ones that would make a quite the bad impression on a person looking for an example of a church-goer. Finally, a little more than a third through or so, the reader starts getting into the action that Peretti is famous for. The suspense builds as you try to figure out what is going on in this little town called Antioch. As the tension and action piles up, the reader is confronted with some of the more frightening elements of this story, to the point of making the ending almost anti-climatic. It does get a little scary indeed. But that's okay, by then you *really want to know how it all ends. And end it finally does, and tragically so. Not to give away the ending, but the book really doesn't have a "and they all lived happily ever after" feeling at all. It's quite somber. But it has some valuable lessons that all Believers need to pay attention to. Pay particular attention to the "stuff" of religion that is mentioned frequently. All in all, it's not as good as the other two Peretti novels I've read so far, but this was worth the reading and recommended.

When I read books, they don't usually freak me out. You know those books that they say will keep you up all night, not reading but thinking...well Frank Peretti is the only author who has successfully managed to do that to me. His work with Ted Dekker in "House" was the first book that has ever kept me up at night. "The Visitation" is the next one that has managed to do the same. "The Visitation," is an incredible book that spans the horizon of Christianity. When people in town start seeing images of Jesus and His mother Mary all over the place, the stage is being set for the main show. And the final confrontation and climax will leave you shocked and wondering just how Peretti was able to keep it under wraps the entire time. I would definitely suggest reading this if thrillers are your thing. Cheers, oh and don't forget to lock the door. **wink**
