This Present Darkness, Exposing Spiritual Warfare

Updated on December 5, 2013

Written by Frank E. Peretti, This Present Darkness is a riveting masterpiece! A Christian novel, this book is almost like stepping into the matrix. Reading this book will bring to light the very real spiritual battle going on around us, even in our very own lives. This book will uncover the power of prayer, the reality of demons and angels, the reality of Ephesians 6:12. We are not wrestling with flesh and blood.

With the backdrop of a small college town called Ashton, Bernice Kreuger, a reporter for the local newspaper, is falsely arrested and charged with prostitution. She is released the next day, only to discover that some photos she had taken at an annual festival are missing from her camera. With the help of her editor and chief, Marshall Hogan, Bernice discovers that a new age group plans to take over their little town by buying the college. This new age group, The Universal Consciousness Society, don't like Bernice and Marshall snooping around and immediately have Marshall arrested and charged with murder, among other things.

As the story unfolds, you begin to see that the demons and dark authorities will stop at nothing to stop those in their way. The story is written very well and doesn't just describe what is going on in the physical realm, but far more importantly, depicts what is going on in the spiritual realm. As angels and demons war over the souls and lives of those in the town of Ashton, you cannot help but begin to unveil the reality that there is a spiritual battle going on around you. There are souls that are lost and a Savior to rescue them. Will you be one that is lost for eternity or will you become a prayer warrior that takes part in the greatest victory ever known?
