I have 30+ years of being a dedicated fan and promoter of Frank Peretti’s work. It’s not because his books are so well written, although that’s a perk. It’s because they make an impact. They have, and continue, to change lives. I’ve read the testimonies of others. I even have one myself.
God’s timing is perfect. On every blog-site I’ve ever operated, I’ve written multiple reviews for many of Peretti’s novels, save one. This one. Prophet.
In re-reading the book this week, I through every apprehension for reviewing it in the trash bin, where they landed in good company. This book is as relevant today as it was when it first hit the bookstore racks 1990s. It’s one of the most fascinating stories I’ve ever read.
Although it’s fiction, any reader can take entire sections of it and find it easily matches up with incidents, scenarios and seasons of their own lives.
Prophet is about a spiritual gift that begins interrupting the life of a prestigious news reporter, living and working in a city that is being engulfed and invisibly led-by-the-nose to deeper, darker places, dark places many of its citizens would never want to go, if they saw the terrain, the real terrain, through spiritual eyes.
Thanks for your visit and shalom!
