Another Book Review- This Present Darkness Series

Recently I finished re-reading (for the umpteenth time) Frank Peretti's two novels- This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness.  I will say right off that I do not agree with everything Mr. Peretti presents in his two novels.  This stated, let me go in to what I do like about his novels.  These two books depict a very real picture of what a spiritual battle looks like.  They have demons, and they have angels.  While I wouldn't say that the spiritual battles depicted in the series is exactly what happens, they give a very eyeopening account that really makes you think about the reality of demons and angels as depicted in the scripture.  The two books really make you think about the power of prayer and God's command for us to "pray with out ceasing."  If you have not previously read these two books I highly recommend them.  They are well written, riveting, beautiful, and thought provoking.  I have not read any of his other novels so I cannot recommend them, though I have heard that others of his works have some odd theology. So grab a cup of tea and enjoy!  God bless!
