More About Frank Peretti
With more than 15 million novels in print, Frank Peretti is nothing short of a publishing phenomenon and has been called “America’s hottest Christian novelist.” The Oath (Word Publishing 1995), sold more than half a million copies within the first six months of release. The Visitation (Word Publishing 1999), was #1 on the CBA Fiction Bestseller list for four months. Born in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada in 1951, Frank is a natural storyteller who, as a youngster in Seattle, regularly gathered the neighborhood children for animated storytelling sessions, drew comics, and tapped out stories on his mother’s portable typewriter.
His journey toward becoming a writer had its side trips. After graduating from high school, he began playing banjo with a local bluegrass group, then worked as a musician and odd-job man for a small recording studio.
Shortly after he and his wife Barbara were married in 1972, Frank toured with a pop band and then a modest Christian music ministry. He later studied English, screen writing and film at UCLA before spending five years helping his father pastor a small Assembly of God church in the Seattle area. During those five years he labored at night, on weekends, any chance he got, to write his first novel, This Present Darkness, the book that would catapult him into the public eye – eventually. Numerous publishers rejected the novel and Frank gave up his pastoring position to work in construction and odd jobs to make ends meet. Even after Crossway Books published This Present Darkness in 1986, the novel sat on store shelves largely unnoticed.
Two years later, Frank was working at a local ski factory when word-of- mouth enthusiasm finally lifted This Present Darkness onto a tidal wave of interest in spiritual warfare. The book appeared on Bookstore Journal’s bestseller list every month for more than eight years. His two spiritual warfare novels, This Present Darkness (1986) and Piercing the Darkness (1989), captivated readers, together selling more than 3.5 million copies. The Oath was awarded the 1996 Gold Medallion Award for best fiction.
For kids, Frank wrote The Cooper Kids Adventure Series (Crossway and Tommy Nelson), which remains a best-selling series for children with sales exceeding 1 million copies. In August 2000, Peretti released the hilarious children’s audiocassette series titled Wild and Wacky Totally True Bible Stories, reprising his role as Mr. Henry, the offbeat substitute Sunday School teacher found in two Visual Bible for Kids videos. In 2000, Frank released his first-ever non-fiction book, The Wounded Spirit, in which he deals with the problem of bullying.
In all, including his current work, Illusion, Frank has written nineteen books of various size for various ages.
Frank and Barbara live a simple life in rural Idaho. He leads worship at their church, Barbara paints in watercolor, and they enjoy being with their close friends.
Reviews - What do customers think about Mayday At Two Thousand Five Hundred (Cooper Kids Adventure V8)?
Not as exciting of a plot as the others, but still great Feb 6, 2003
It's Frank Peretti's brilliant novel writing skills...condensed! It's a super-cool family of archeologists--minus a mother--who investigate phenomena in the spirit of Indiana Jones, only with a Christian perspective. A nice alternative to the gore and junk in the Indiana Jones movies.
Flying Blind isn't as exciting or as spectacular of a plot as some of the others, but still will keep you on the edge of your seat. Jay Cooper has been struck blind on board his uncle's plane due to airplane turbulence. Now, with the help of ground crew, family, friends, and relatives he must attempt to keep his unconscious uncle alive and land safely...all while he is Flying Blind.
This book appears to be the last of the Cooper kids adventure series, sadly. It's not as grand as some of the other novels, like I said, but it's still worth reading.
For the parents: A pretty tame book, compared to the others. Jay gets whacked on the head and bleeds a little. That's it.
wow Jul 29, 2002

But it may cost his uncle his life. Can Jay land the plane successfully without injuring himself or his uncle? This book grabs your attention, and keeps it!
The Fun Of Books Mar 13, 2001
Derek Carroll 3/13/01
I really enjoyed reading this book because it was very suspenseful. It was full of excitement, it made you not want to stop reading the book or even put it down. It was like being inside a movie acting it out as you read on. I believe everyone should have the Frank Peretti collection in their home. If it is your first time reading a book you should start on this book. If you like a book full of action and danger this is the book you should be reading. It takes place on a little two-passenger plane that belongs to jay's uncle. They both were having fun until a huge passenger plane had blown its engine. The force of the turbulence under the plane forced jay's plane out of control and knocking them both unconscious.
The Lord is faithful in all circumstances Mar 1, 2000
My son and myself have read all eight of the series now and have been very touched as well as entertained by the series. "Flying Blind" is a wonderful story of the Cooper family's ability to walk by faith and not by sight. As they are tested by some very trying circumstances God continues to reveal himself as a loving Father faithfully delivering his children thru difficult times. We have been blessed by reading about this family's very Good Friend who watches over and saves His people. Read the entire series and come to know this Good Friend better!
