This Present Darkness/Piercing the Darkness
This Present Darkness (paperback)
- The first novel of Peretti's which I read, it kept me on the edge
of my seat with it's fast-paced, well-crafted story! My only complaint
was that his literary style was a little wordy. But his wonderful
ability to tell a facinating story more than made up for it.
The most facinating aspect of this story (and Piercing the
darkness) is that they are written from an angelic perspective. The
ordinary happenings of day-to-day living are given heavenly, eternal
importance. He gives his angelic and demonic characters believable life
without sacrificing biblical fidelity. Like C. S. Lewis, Peretti writes
even far-flung fiction while staying true to God's reality.
Piercing the Darkness (paperback)
- The second installment of angelic exploits was even better than the
first! I have read all of Peretti's adult fiction aloud to my husband
and son because none of us wanted to wait for the other to
finish reading the book. So we all read them together...=)
- Peretti researched this novel at local NW telvision stations,
interviewing people involved in the pro-life movement and incorporated
elements of true events to tell this chillingly real tale about the
media, the politics of abortion, and puts real faces and feelings
behind the sterile statistics most pro-choice advocates quote. The
story was riveting, heart-rending, and definately hard to put down!
The Oath (paperback)
- This is, in my opinion, Peretti's best work to date. Fast-paced as
always, this has none of the wordiness of his earlier novels.
Suspensful, intriguing story, tight charaterizations, and moral punch
make this a really great read.
