National best-selling author Frank Peretti has been hailed the undisputed master of supernatural thrillers. The New York Times calls him "the dean of the genre." His books have sold more than nine million copies and The Visitation alone has sold more than half a million. The small town of Antioch, Washington is a hotbed for spiritual activity. Burned-out minister Travis Jordan has been replaced by a charismatic man who looks and behaves like Christ. Suddenly, the town is abuzz with reports of miracles and religious sightings. But Travis believes the new minister is a false messiah and senses the ominous presence of pure evil. Filled with thrilling action, The Visitation is also the author's most personal work. Says Peretti, "It is a searching of my own heart ." Narrator Richard Ferrone delivers a rich, animated performance. Download and start listening now!

    " A bit odd, but good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina Jacobsen | 2/7/2014

    " Just finished this book while on vacation. Excellent- could hardly put it down! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa | 2/1/2014

    " Beware of false prophets. Know the truth so you will know the difference. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 1/13/2014

    " Very interesting take on false prophets/lying signs & wonders. I particularly enjoyed the approach Peretti uses. It is always unique and that is why I think he is such a great writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brad | 1/1/2014

    " A very good book about what happens to an ex-pastor and the small town he lives in when a man arrives who makes it seem that he is the second coming of Jesus Christ. A very interesting study in what can happen when you have faith because you tangibly benefit vs having faith due to the teachings of the bible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Decop | 12/13/2013

    " Supernatural thriller with a religious bent. Not too preachy and written extremely well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julian | 11/24/2013

    " This novel opens a portal that no other author that I have read ever has. It is a twisted but will produced story and will captivate the read from the word go. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianne | 11/3/2013

    " If you're a solid Christian and a long time church-goer you should get the humor in this novel. Very funny in some places and sobering in others, Peretti exposes the heart-breaking and damaging things that can happen to a church when parishioners prefer being entertained rather than being taught by the church. This book tackles what is a very real problem in the church today with humor and poignancy. One of my favorite Peretti novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Hartzell | 10/24/2013

    " To be honest, I only vaguely remember this book, so I'm giving it an average rating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 9/29/2013

    " Like most of his early books, this one kept me glued and on the edge of my seat. I don't think I liked it near as much as The Oath, but it's an extremely good read I wouldn't mind recommending to my friends. I like how he sneaks some worthy critiques of the American church into the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal Plunket | 7/12/2013

    " Peretti's all about how evil can penetrate slowly into our lives, and this book is no exception. To me, it was okay. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shauna | 6/17/2013

    " If you like Frank Peretti, I think you would like this book. It's not quite as fanciful/crazy as This Present Darkness and I really liked the main character and actually identified with him which makes me like the author when they are able to do that. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Setrenalynne A.T. | 6/11/2013

    " IT IS REALLY FREAKY!!!!! YET CHRISTIAN "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 5/21/2013

    " A great fiction novel about people trying to be God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaitlyn | 5/8/2013

    " good( i didn't really finish it tho i was tired of having it on my "Reading" thingy but it was still good) :D "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dasha | 2/16/2013

    " hmm, probably my least favorite of his books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amie | 7/11/2012

    " Love Peretti's style!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Cross | 5/15/2012

    " This was an interesting read. Slow at some points but still draws you in and keeps you interested through out the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 3/23/2012

    " story about false prophets ,less enthralling than other books I have read by this author , but worth persevering to the end . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 2/12/2012

    " Exciting, twisting plot that lets you make your own decisions on characters before finding out if they are good or evil. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rkeddins | 1/19/2012

    " A laborious story that I did not enjoy. I would have stopped it early on, but I was on a trip and had nothing better to do. There are a few cute anecdotes within it, but not worth the time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lydia | 10/19/2011

    " Another delightful and thought-provoking Peretti. I didn't know that he was Pentacostal until I read this. He gives an understanding and humorous inside look at a circle I've only heard about. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kimchi | 8/18/2011

    " I've never read a single "Christian fiction" book, so I thought a Frank Peretti book is a good place to start, but I seem to not have the taste for this type of literature. It's too preachy, but I'm still reading it just for the sake of finishing. (My apologies to Frank Peretti's fans.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcia Meerwarth | 6/20/2011

    " Although a work of fiction, I learned something about the struggle between good and evil, about human nature and the spiritual life which will help me to live my life wisely. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bobbi | 4/19/2011

    " Was a little unsure of where the book was going until I was almost finished. The ending had an interesting twist. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bethany | 1/13/2011

    " I read this last year, looking forward to another book like This Present Darkness. But this book, to me, was horrible. The plot was okay, but there were multiple small details that I hated. I.e. speaking in tongues and a woman preacher. I definitely do not recommend this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaya Mack | 12/14/2010

    " This one was like wow! It made me think about modern days if we would recognize Jesus or be able to pick out a false prophet!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann'misa Chiu | 5/25/2010

    " Miraclious healings and Jesus sightings don't always lead to God...or do they? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ange | 5/18/2010

    " Pretty sure I read it before. May or may not continue. It took awhile, but finally the story grabbed me and turned out to be alright. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April Welch | 4/20/2010

    " This book was no joke! "
