This Present Darkness

Frank Peretti
Also Available In
"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places." Ephesians 6:12

After the film in her camera is mysteriously destroyed at a small-town festival, reporter Bernice Kreuger knows she's found something worth covering up. She brings the investigation to her boss, Marshall Hogan. Along with the local pastor of a struggling church, Hank Busch, they find something much bigger than they expected-a demonic plot to enslave their town and, eventually, the world.

The tiny college town of Ashton becomes the unlikely battleground in a cosmic clash between good and evil. Unseen by the human protagonists, armies of angels and demons wage war against one another in the spiritual realm for the souls of the people of Ashton. Up against supernatural forces, the future of the town seems bleak - but the power of prayer might be able to influence the outcome of the fight.

This fast-paced thriller birthed an entirely new genre, setting the standard for spiritual suspense. It has since sold over 2 million copies worldwide, sparking a renewed interest in the concept of spiritual warfare.

Fascinating!
5 stars By Benny, Nov 28 2013
Wonderfully written. I adore novels that also teach us about the spiritual realm. This Present Darkness certainly gives us a view of the spiritual realm and what is potentially surrounding our friends, families and us if we choose to remain ignorant to it. I got a lot out of this book as well as it is a great classic story that draws you in right from the get-go, expanding our understanding of the spiritual realm and the interaction of angels in our lives. A great story and an exciting adventure.

A must-read for fiction and non-fiction lovers alike.
4 stars By Rachel, Sep 07 2012
I'm not a fiction-reader but my friend told me I had to read this book.  It took me ages to get into it, but after the first chapter or two, I couldn't put it down and read the rest in a day or two!  Like C.S. Lewis' 'The Screwtape Letters', this book will 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.
