About "Piercing the Darkness"
^The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.^ John 1:5 (ESV) ^It all begins in Bacon's Corner, a tiny farming community far from the interstate . . . An attempted murder, a case of mistaken-or is it covered up?-identity, and a ruthless lawsuit against a struggling Christian school. Sally Beth Roe, a young loner, a burnout, a kind of "leftover hippie,"finds herself caught in the middle of these bizarre events, fleeing for her life while trying to recall her dark past. ^Across a vast panorama of heart-stopping action, Sally Roe's journey is a penetrating portrayal of our times, a reflection of our wanderings, and a vivid reminder of the redemptive power of the Cross. A companion volume to This Present Darkness, readers have purchased over two million copies of Piercing the Darkness since its publication in 1989.

Why is the name for this review 'vision of the eternal'? The spiritual realm is very real, and vivid images of what this transparent world looks like are created in the readers mind. I rate four stars, amazing story and definitely well worth the read. Personally I feel Peretti could have explained more the workings of the Eternal realm, the Christians interaction with it, and given a glimpse into the third Heaven, as I found this novel based primarily in the second. This aside however, I would rate Piercing the Darkness five stars for story line, creativity and vacuum factor (the books ability to suck you in).
An amazing book that I just can't put down. One of Perreti's best. This is the second time I have read it.
This book is a sequel to 'This Present Darkness' and is just as riveting! It will again and again remind you of the reality of the co-existent supernatural battle going on around us, and the vitality of our prayer and the fight for God's kingdom.
This is the sequel to my most favourite book by Frank Peretti. Both completely opened up my eyes to the spiritual realms in the form of a novel. It shows what's happening in the natural, but also on both sides of the spiritual world at the same time. Makes you really stop and think about the spiritual realm that surrounds us just beyond our view. A definite must read. Has a slow beginning, but is definitely worth sticking with especially as everything is brought together from the first book, awesome.
