More About Frank Peretti

Frank E. 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 Secret Of The Desert Stone (Cooper Kids Adventure V5)?

Amazing...In The Best Way You Could Imagine  Jan 12, 2006
I'm a big Cooper Kids fan (and my name is Cooper, too). This book, Secret of the Desert Stone, is one-of-a-kind. As far as plots and settings and storylines in general go, this one's OK or above average, but nothing fantastic. In fact, if that was all I was looking at, I would rate it three stars. But the reason I rated it five was because breaches the most important thing in a person's life in a totally innovative and oh-so incredible way. The Coopers crash-land in the territory of a savage tribe in Africa while trying to discover the secret of a phenomal stone in an African dictatorship. But what they discover among the people is breath-taking. This book has a POWERFUL spiritual message (and don't get me wrong. It's NOT TOTALLY BORING....just not as action-packed as the other ones. A plain and simple fact meant to inform, not to dissuade). If you're reading the Cooper Kids, READ THIS BOOK. It will be a story you won't forget.
Amazing  Jul 29, 2002
I loved this book! It gives readers a breather in the series, since the most of the books have dangerous situations. This book is not so dangerous until the end, but it is soooo interesting to see the simalarities between the idea's of the people they meet and Christianity. It starts when Dr. Cooper and his kids investigate the apearance of a large, perfectly rectangle stone in a mountain pass. The tribe they meet behind it is very friendly to them. During their stay with the them they discover the tribe is expecting water to come from the stone to help them grow crops, although the army on the other side is terrified of it. Dr. Cooper's family also dicover the people have a religion very similar to Christianity, with some of the same stories that some from the Bible. In the end, the stone saves them all. This is such an interesting book, it was a thrill for me to read.
Absolutley terrific!  May 20, 2000
Frank Peretti is one of the best authors on the face of this Earth. This book, The Secret of the Desert Stone, displays that talent. He perfectly captures the greatness, and soverigntiy of God in a creative way. Once again, I totally admire the Coopers maturity as Christians, and their complete trust in the Father.
Inspiring, powerful, and an excellent thriller for all ages.  Aug 7, 1999
This book is a great book for all ages. I am currently 17 and I love it. It is a wonderful testimony of what you can do with faith in God.
All Frank Peretti books whoop but this book is the best!  May 23, 1999
Frank Peretti is better then any other books. This is the best book I ever and will read in my life! Hardy Boys were the first books I liked but when I read this book it changed my mind.
