9781596072060: The Present Darkness by Frank Peretti from Books In Motion.com

Aston is just a typical small town. But when a skeptical reporter and a prayerful pastor begin to compare notes, they suddenly find themselves fighting a hideous New Age plot to subjugate the townspeople, and eventually the entire human race. The battle rages in the spirit world between Rafar, leading his legions from the world of darkness, and Tal, leading his army of angels. The battle is unseen by the townspeople, but they feel its presence and the vortex of evil threatening to annihilate the town and its people. Pastor Hank Bushe and newspaperman Marshall Hogan join the battle, and lead the human crusade against the plotting of others in the town. The fighting is vicious and the outcome is unforgettable. Read by Jack Sondericker. 16 CD's 17.8 Hrs.

Review:

This Present Darkness, by Frank Peretti, is among the classic novels of the Christian thriller genre. First published in 1986, Peretti's book set a suspenseful standard in spiritual warfare story-telling that has rarely been met by his contemporaries. Set in the apparently innocent small town of Ashton, This Present Darkness follows an intrepid born-again Christian preacher and newspaper reporter as they unearth a New Age plot to take over the local community and eventually the entire world. Nearly every page of the book describes sulfur-breathing, black-winged, slobbering demons battling with tall, handsome, angelic warriors on a level of reality that is just beyond the senses. However, Christian believers and New Age demon-worshippers are able to influence unseen clashes between good and evil by the power of prayer. Peretti's violent descriptions of exorcisms are especially vivid: "There were fifteen [demons], packed into Carmen's body like crawling, superimposed maggots, boiling, writhing, a tangle of hideous arms, legs, talons, and heads." This book is not for the squeamish. But for page-turning spiritual suspense, it's hard to beat.
