Item description for Esta Patente Oscuridad by Frank E. Peretti...
Overview SPANISH EDITION.
Publishers Description Esta patente oscuridad, de Frank Peretti, se encuentra entre las novelas clasicas del genero cristiano de suspense. Publicado por primera vez en 1986, el libro de Peretti establece un estandar del suspense en la narracion de historias de guerra espiritual que rara vez han logrado sus contemporaneos. Teniendo como escenario el aparentemente inocente pueblo de Ashton, Esta patente oscuridad persigue a un intrepido predicador cristiano nacido de nuevo y reportero mientras trata de desenmascarar un complot de la Nueva Era para apoderarse de la comunidad local y a la larga del mundo. Casi cada pagina del libro describe demonios de grotesca apariencia batallando contra angeles de elevada estatura y buen parecer con un nivel de realismo que sobrepasa los sentidos. Sin embargo, los creyentes cristianos y los adoradores de demonios de la Nueva Era pueden influenciar los choques invisibles entre el bien y el mal por medio del poder de la oracion. Las violentas descripciones de Peretti de exorcismos son en especial vividas: -Habian quince demonios], empacados en el cuerpo de Carmen como gusanos superpuestos, arrastrandose, moviendose, hirviendo, una marana de brazos, piernas talones y cabezas horripilantes-. Este libro no es para los de constitucion debil. Sin embargo, como una muestra del suspense espiritual al voltear cada pagina, es dificil de derrotar."

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.

Este libro me cautivo, lo tome en mis manos y no pude soltarlo hasta terminar de leerlo. La trama está muy bien hecha. Al leerlo, estas en suspenso, no sabes que va a pasar en cada momento. Además relata en forma magistral, la batalla que se desarrolla alrededor nuestro, en el mundo invisible. Lo recomiendo, se lo pase para leer a mis hijas adolescentes, quedaron fascinadas.
Uno de los libros más grandiosos May 5, 2009
Frank Peretti es el mejor escritor de ficción y suspenso con tema cristiano, y este es el mejor de sus libros. Lo recomiendo mucho si creen en la guerra espiritual y demonios y ángeles de la forma en que la Biblia lo enseña.
Frank Peretti is the best writer of fiction and suspense with a christian message, and this is the best of their books. I recommend it very much if you believe in spiritual war and demons and angels in the way the Bible teaches it.

I teach in a Christian school and we are reading "This Present Darkness" in our Literature Class. I have an exchange student from Columbia, and she was having a hard time understanding the english version. To find this book at [...] was a lifesaver! She is totally engrossed in the book and is able to take the reading tests on it in English although she reads the Spanish version. All my students love this book and even students I have taught in the past see my present students carrying "This Present Darkness" around and they exclaim, "Wow, I read that! It is my favorite book of all times! Or, boy, that book changed my life." I could not be happier to be able to share it with an exchange student!
AWESOME Jan 20, 2007
This book takes a closer look to Christianity and the power of prayer. If you ever wondered why some of the things happen to us, this book will give you an answer. I highly recomend this book.
Even though it is a novel, it does make a lot of references to the bible. This is a must have book for a "born-again" Christian.
Encounter with the spiritual world Sep 12, 2001
There are many books that would let you know about the spiritual world in a peaceful manner. This one master the reader to think about a spiritual world that is in the middle of a war. The way the author manage theological aspects of the life and how spiritual wars on the air affects the human world, is awesome. It is not a book to be afraid, but to enjoy it. Compare it as a story that is happening somewhere, but that somehow it could happens to you. Also, the novel point out the church responsiblity of pray for the problems. The church of our times is sleeping while the world is having the worst time ever. We should wake up, and at least, pray for our nation. Read it, I encourage you to do so, you will not be disappointed! And let me tell you that the price is better than ever.
