                                  Peretti's Best Yet


A burned-out minister in small town Antioch, Washington, must wrestle
with his confusion and cynicism when a self-proclaimed messiah takes
over his ministry. The replacement minister looks like Christ. He even
heals the sick and performs miracles. Could this messenger of hope and
renewal be the real thing?At first, this small town is abuzz with reports of
miracles and religious sightings (a weeping statue of Christ, a
disappearing hitchhiker warning of Christs arrival, a soothing angel). But
suddenly theres a twist of evil and demonic mystery in the air. Its up to the
jaded minister Travis to track down the real story behind this visitor and
somehow find a way to stop him. Frank Peretti has been a hit sensation in
the Christian thriller market but admits that up until now his books have
surfed in the shallow waters of pop fiction. In The Visitation, Peretti has
worked his craft more carefully--exploring how suffering leads to
disillusionment in God as well as deepening his characterization. (The
main character is a thinly disguised reflection of Perettis own bout with
doubt.) Fans will be relieved to know that Peretti is still dedicated to
suspenseful drama, and theres still plenty of spine-chilling mayhem when
all hell literally breaks loose on this small-town cast of characters.

I was extremely satisfied with the visitation. Peretti did a wonderful job
writing this book. He sculpted a fabulous plot and set of well developed
characters. I loved the way he covered how we as Christians can get so
caught up with rules and how things look to not loving and ministering to
one another and getting caught up with how many people attend our
church. This seems to be a common theme in many churches today
causing us to forget what we are truly there for. Peretti certainly made me
think about this and examine my own thoughts and actions. This is
definitely a must read!!!
