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 Tombs Of Anak (Cooper Kids Adventure V3)?
Better than the first one Oct 20, 2008
The door in the dragon's throat (A Crossway youth book) is this first in the series and it just was a bad book. This book with the admitted Christian propaganda is still fun and has some maybe historical reference. The writer has seemed to improve so that his plot is in places actually exciting. Those interested in biblical history that has an archeology background might like getting this for their kids.
Very Cool May 13, 2008
This is a very cool book. It picks up the pace quickly and once it does, it's a real page-turner. It has this cool Indiana Jones vibe, but it's also very christian. And even better, it's pretty scary. I love the historic Biblical references to Anak and the giants. Us ninjas 1 and 2 love it.
Enjoyed this christian fiction book very much Dec 9, 2007
As both an author and reader of fiction, I was impressed with "the Tombs of Anak". Maybe it is because I have always enjoyed a book that could hold my attention and make me think at the same time. In a nutshell, the characters are believable and yet a little out of the ordinary and the story line unique. Give this book a try. The Christian fiction book that I have written main story line is about ten years in the life of a little girl who was "chosen by God" to be the next Madonna in the second coming of Christ.

Awesome! Nov 4, 2007
This was my first Frank Peretti book I ever read, and it made me a huge fan of his. For non-stop adventure and action, this is hard to beat.
Archeologist Dr. Jacob Cooper and his two kids, Jay and Lila, go searching for a missing worker in the hills of the Middle East, and instead stumble into a frightening danger; a mysterious being known as Ha-Raphah, who has the local people frightened and in his grasp. How the Coopers defeat it and escape various dangers is for you to find out.
This is a top-notch Christian thriller for kids, and adults too. Well recommended.
Be sure to check the other awesome books in the series, especially "The Deadly Curse of Toco-Rey".
Parent beware Mar 5, 2007
This was the first and last of this series we will read. Parents should review books before their children read them (I do!) This book contained a great deal of scary content in real life situations, and the writing was cheesy. I gave it 1 star because the author tried to incorporate some Biblical OT history. We Christians should be putting out better material.
