1. Excellent post, providing much food for thought. Thanks for writing it.

    Yes, The Visitation is either Peretti’s best work or very close to it. There is some cheesy dialogue towards the beginning but overall it’s a great novel that both challenges and explores the nature of the Church and show us how easy it is to fall prey to wolves if we aren’t rooted in God’s Truth, through Christ. Pity the movie ditched most of the character development and the subtlety of evil for mainly clichéd thriller/horror.

    Try Ted Dekker. He’s written some thought-provoking fiction. Especially try Black, Red, White (his Circle Trilogy) and Boneman’s Daughters.

What do you think?
