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.

Love Peretti! Jun 7, 2008
This is my favorite Peretti book. I absolutely could not put this book down. It's a little out there, but a very good read.
Have you seen Jesus lately? Apr 20, 2008
If you have ever been drawn to supernatural sightings, Jesus, Mary, UFOs, or Elvis then this is a must read. It is frightening that people can be caught up as they are in this novel. However this reflects true life more than we imagine. Learn to test the spirits.

Craptastic!!! Mar 27, 2008
This book was a 500 page sleeping pill!!! the book was hardly exciting at all and it spent way to much time emphasizing flashbacks (which went on for several chapters at a time). The ending was pretty good, although not as climatic as Frank built it up to be. I read House before this and i wasn't all that big a fan of that book, but i would strongly suggest House over The Visitation. In all, the book spends way to much time dealing with the main characters past, which has little to nothing to do with the actual story, where as it should of exemplified the main plot instead. ANYWAYS!!! DONT BUY THIS BOOK!!!! it is a waste of time.
Returned Oct 21, 2007

Worth the read Mar 19, 2007
I'm an avid reader, however, THE VISITATION is my first book by author Frank Peretti. I found the book to be intriguing and thought provoking. Travis Jordan's character was very well developed. Definitely worth the read. I'm already moving on to other Frank Peretti books....
