Format: Paperback
Through the investigation of the death of his father, John Barrett discovers his true calling. He seeks the truth with greater vengeance as he uncovers the plot behind his fathers death and the politcal corruption that is brought to light as he begins to understand who his father is. This book is one of mystery and intrigue and I found myself enjoying this book more than This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness simply because the characters were narrowed down to a few instead of the many incorporated in the other two. And I must agree with other reviewers that this was brilliantly executed although I would have liked to see more of the relationship between the main character and his son Carl. Though John Barrett knows his future and begins in his own way to prepare his son, the question is raised will son Carl pick up where dad and granddad left off? Only God knows.
I heartily recommend this book. It kept my interest in a way most other novels I've read didn't. Aren't we all searching for the truth?

This book has heart-thumping action, detailed character and plot development, intense dialogue and deep and explosive spiritual impact. These ingredients aid in making this book deliciously engaging and a must read.
The book begins in the world of John Barrett, a successful news anchorman for channel 6 and his father, a successful businessman. Their two worlds collide when John's father makes the news by challenging a prominent political figure. John's disdain for his father's public proselytizing is brought to a sudden halt when his father is mysteriously killed. This event forces John to understand his father, go head to head with a powerful politician, reconcile with his son, question his own integrity and keep the newscrew of channel 6 from putting an erroneous spin on a story!
This book addresses the cultural and moral battles that are prevalent in our society today. The spiritual warfare in the book is extremely intriguing and the suspenseful plot will keep the reader hanging on every word. This book challenges us to be a modern day prophet in a world that seems to have a decreasing sense of morality.

This book, like all of Frank Peretti's other books, was hard to put down. It catches your interest and you just have to find out what is going to happen. I have to say he is my favorite author to date. I have read all of his books, loved them all and recommend to anyone who enjoyed this book to read his others, This Present Darkness, Piercing the Darkness, The Oath, and his newest - The Visitation. I can't wait for him to come out with a new one.

Mr. Peretti, I really enjoyed this book. You opened the doors to the media for me. You showed me how the media could cover things up and make things appear real that truly are not. I like the way that you showed how the Holy Spirit can truly open our eyes and see truth in a world that does not know nothing about it. I truely would recommend this book to anyone.

I can't really say anymore than the previous reviews of this book have already said: yes, it was excellent, supenseful, brilliant... I have no complaints. But to those who feel it was too wordy, particularly in the news room scenes, I have to defend Mr. Peretti by informing them that the point to his detail was to get us behind the scenes of the news as we know it, and let us in on much of what is really going on. A careful reader would have caught some subtle implications in these scenes that enriched the novel -- the symbolism of the sensationalism as well as the falseness of the set and of the opening of the news hour. (In fact, I think it would have improved the novel if Mr. Peretti had not explained some of the symbols, such as the coat passed on from father to son, and the fake monitor at the end of the news desk. They were quite clear as they were.) These details also showed that Mr. Peretti "did his homework," something that gives the story even more credibility. I have to admit that certain details were distracting and difficult to trudge through, but I blame that on my laziness as modern reader. I know one thing, I won't ever view news broadcasts the same again. Peretti not only gave us an excellent story, he educated us in the process.

Format: Paperback
Frank Peretti has established himself as an excellent writer of fiction (see This Present Darkness), as well as non-fiction (with the Wounded Spirit). In this book he tackles some hot social issues through the story of a man's journey of awakening to who he is and what he stands for. The social comments regarding the media, and the way news is spun to meet the agenda's of the (usually liberal) owners of the media outlet, is right on the money and reflective of what we have seen recently in the 2000 Presidential race. In this story, the topic is abortion rights, and the plot involves a news reporter's choice between doing what he believes is right, and keeping his job and status as an anchor. The story is well written, and once you get a chapter or two into the book, it is hard to put down. I gave this book three stars in comparison to his other works, but it is an excellent read and well worth the time and effort to do so.
