More About 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 Door In The Dragons Throat (Repack) (Cooper V1)?
Religious tract, Archeology Mar 4, 2008
What pretends to be archeology or science here, is actually a fundamentally Christian indoctrination lecture. I know some scientists that would take real offense at that, but I don't. What bothers me is that young minds might think this reflects archeology. They actually use explosives in several places in this book, and talk about dragons, Satan, spirits, curses and demons. There is no history of real note involved at all except quotes from the scriptures.The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark was what this book reminded me of. Science has been about banishing superstitions that made people afraid.
Good Story Nov 4, 2007
This was my third Cooper Kids book I read, and I must say it wasn't as exciting as the others, but still definitely a good story.
Archeologist Dr. Jacob Cooper and his two kids, Jay and Lila, have arrived in the Middle East to find out the secret behind a mysterious door reported to have been hidden under the earth in a large. . .well, throat, or opening in the ground. But someone mysterious is trying to stop them. . .
Great for all ages! Nov 2, 2006
This book (being Peretti's first to be published) is probably one of the best christian fiction books for a kid. It entertians while it give a good message. It has a big twist, and I must point out that peretti did a great job on character detail and plot! A hands on book for all ages that will have you (if your a kid) Under the covers with a flash light and this book up all night, same thing with an adult (exept they probably won't need a flash light). Everyone needs to read this book, now (don't take that as a threat. But this one will be one of those books that you will always remember.) Now get ready becuase your going to be on the edge of your seat, and at the end fall off of it! Read this book, becuase if you don't, yoo are going to miss out on alot!
Over all, a must read for all ages!!!
Very Good Book Sep 24, 2006
I thought this book was very good. It had me at the edge of my seat. It was very faith-building and I did a Bible study on it. Every kid should read this book.
Good vs Evil - the next round Feb 6, 2006
While visiting a book fair recently, I came across a whole pile of young adult fiction and picked up titles randomly without even reading the back covers. I had no clue therefore that Frank Peretti specializes in Christian fiction, but it didn't take me long to discover that this is no ordinary fiction series.
A combination of Indiana Jones and the Hardy Boys, the main characters are Dr. Cooper, an archaeologist and explorer of deep religious conviction, and his two children Jay and Lila, who accompany him on his expeditions as his assistants.
This first adventure takes them to the nation of Nepur, where a mysterious door stands in a deep cavern. Local folklore indicates that the place is cursed, but that a treasure beyond belief lies waiting behind door number one.
The Coopers are tested by the greed of local authorities, local legend, and a Shaman with beliefs different to their own Christian doctrine. The story essentially focuses on the constant battle between good and evil, and while the plot is good, there are too many cliches and it's a tad heavy in places where the dogma is laid on a bit too thickly.
