Ever thought Christianity was boring and non happening? This book is an amazing eye opener to the power of the supernatural and how our actions can have such a supernatural impact.
This Present Darkness does not reveal to me the supernatural but rather the true meaning of what the Word of God describes as the War around us that we can’t see, only our prayer and the power of prayer displays the awsome Power & Love of God and what happens in the Spiritual realm around us……everyday!
Have read the books The Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness two or three times each and keep hoping for another in the series. They give hope and perhaps a way to deal with the frustrations and feelings we’re attacked with daily with encouragement to read the Word of God daily. Thank you.
When will your “Darkness” books be available as e-books? Looking forward to having them and all your other books on my Nook Color. Thanks
I’m wondering if there’s any possibility of This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness being released in Kindle format? Please????!!!!!! I want to read both of them so badly, but now that I have my Kindle, I really want all my books on there. Thanks!
These were my first books I had read of yours. Wow I didnt sleep untill I had finish the first book. I had to wait till I had the second book. They are the type of books that you want to read untill you are finished.
Thanks so much
Thank you for allowing God to use you to write this book. It has changed turned my spiritual life upside down!
Hi. I have just finished Piercing the Darkness again (many years ago being the first time) and it was a truly wonderful experience! The vision I get of how awesome the angelic warriors are I find so thrilling. Thanks for such a wonderful vision of spiritual warfare : )
Thank you so very much for your books, This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness.
I would love it if you could do another book about the power of prayer. You have been an inspiration to me. Thank you!!
yep. my two best books by you and really, its not to say the others were not great. There is always an excellent picture of the love and care the Lord has for His people coming across in all your books. Along with the need for us not to take the thinks of God fro granted, yt the story lines are never dull!
Keep it up
Having read the two books, i discovered that the angels are not only there to protect but also to fight in the stead of a believer. The Present Darkness and Piercing The Darkness are eye openers 4 every true believer.
I really enjoyed This Present Darkness… really thought provoking on how negativity affects oneself and could be attributed to dark forces… makes me reconsider my bad moods and trying to find a better way of looking at circumstances… also found it interesting to see how the angels were portrayed … looking forward to reading more by this author.
all your great works. and my prayer is that God gives you to go further in your vision. and reach an even greater number. for example I think the drawing annimation.
I have read these two books like 5 times and still read them every now and then. They are the best. Would love Frank Peretti to write more of such books like Piercing the Darkness and This Present Darkness. Thanks a lot. These books are classics.
“This Present Darkness” was published the year I was born, yet it’s every bit as exciting and relevant today. I think I read it the first time when I was ten – one of my first Mom-approved adult novels. The best kind of book – every time I read it, I find something new. I’m very grateful to you, Mr. Peretti, for navigating the marketing process so that this great story could help shape my faith.
Thanks, everybody! It’s amazing that these books are still a blessing after all these years. God can sure do incredible things.
Would you ever consider – pray about it – writing a third book that continues on with Present Darkness and Piercing Darkness? I am always checking to see if you have done this…
This present darkness is a very good book… might there be a movie ?
i had heard rumblings of a TPD movie for almost 20 years. it needs to be made and get michael w smith to do the music he’s expressed interest. eight harry potter movies and not a TPD movie to counter it? come on this is one of the things i want to see before i leave this earth (by death or by rapture). let’s get the ball rolling!! TPD fans unite!!!
You should release a movie of This Present Darkness.
I completely agree. Because young people are so visually stimulated, I’m looking for good tools to convey biblical precepts to them, and these books being A-grade movies would be wonderful.
[...] Piercing the Darkness and This Present Darkness by Frank Peretti — These are not only amazing books, they are also my first introduction to Christian fiction. Since then I have read almost every book that Peretti has written and it even led me to begin reading Ted Dekker (who wrote a book with him). Peretti paints an amazing picture of the spiritual battle that happens behind the veil of what we can see. While the first book is better in my opinion, they are both compelling books. (Note from Melissa: These are awesome books. Not my first introduction to Christian fiction, but the first books I read that deal with supernatural forces. Not cheesy at all, which is what I expected.) [...]
These 2 books were my introduction to your writings. I have read them twice each and have lost them since moving last year. I need to replace them soon.
Please release these books in Kindle format. I read them several years ago and truly loved them. I would like to read them again but have given away the hard cover books I had. I want to buy them for my Kindle.
I know you’ve received numerous questions this, but please, have any concrete prediction about film of the book “This Present Darkness?” Suddenly, a production design, 3D, now an excellent quality and a lower cost maybe ….??
(Note: We use the google translator – Portuguese to English.)
18 years ago I first accepted Jesus as my Savior and these were the books I read. They had a very profound affect on me and gave me aide in my own prayer, which at the time was so foreign to me. Now I have a family of my own and just reread the two books. They still bring me to my knees in tears and prayer, and renew my faith to teach our children to be spiritual warriors in these conflicting times.
I was given these books about 20 years ago when I was a kid and a new christian,
WOW they really opened my eyes to an awesome new perspective of Heavenly things
They are two of my Most treasured books in my collection!
I love all of the books Frank has wrote that I have read !
Keep Up the Good Writing !
LOVE and Blessings to YOU !
actually, can you update us with any information you have in reference to the movie? if you look around anough you’ll find that the person who wrote the screen play for the movie “21″ recently, is allegedly writing the script for your book for 20th century fox if i’m not mistaken. are they keeping you in the loop even though you no longer have the rights to it or did they just cut you out completely?
I have been an avid fan for years, after reading both the This Present Darkness and then Piercing the Darkness books. Amazing books! To me what makes an author an exceptional writer is when I can close my eyes and visualize what is being described so clearly because the writing is so articulate-and I can do so when I read your two books. I have followed along with almost all of your books, excluding the childrens series, and Mr. Peretti, I have to say that I am so excited for the new book you will have coming out soon. No, you did not portray the spiritual warfare as vividly in some of your other books written as the above two, but they were still excellent reads, and I can only expect the best to continue in your new project.
I think it would be so cool for a cartoon movie to be made out of This Present Darkness or Piercing the Darkness. In the world of computer graphics that exists now, it would be awesome, and I know I would buy it!
Thank you for teaching me about spiritual warfare and the power of prayer in your writings. May God continue to bless you to continue to teach His Word in your writings! And thank you for “going there”….
Very serious book. It’s totaly prophetic way of watching.
I was discribing your book to my Grandson who is 11.. telling him the only novels I have read was written by you. I am a non-fiction reader. Except for your books. He replied.. I want to ready his books…
I love this book! It has helped me to develop a better view on Angels,Demons, and how to deal with it. This was on my christmas list this year! I am an avid reader, and an avid writer. You are one of my favorite authors of all time. This present darkness is a book that i keep coming back to read again and again.
Just awesome books grat read and gave me encouragement to keep on going for Christ.
Frank, I’ve been waiting for the movie release of This Present Darkness. Having read it over and over, I am certain that it would be a blockbuster hit immediately. But, more importantly, it would serve to educate people of what this Christian warfare is truly all about. Please, Frank, please – I, for one, am tired of vampire movies and naked people movies. It would be so refreshing to see something substantial on the big screen and, the church folk alone would make this movie a hit, not to mention the thrill-seekers. In the meantime, our prayer group will be in prayer that you will be lead to the right people and that God’s hand will be on this project.
This Present Darkness, helped to open my eyes to the spritual realm. An awesome book, could not put it down. So many distractions that tried to prevent me from reading it. In the end, victory. Very educational for me and my walk with the Lord. Reccommend that this book definitely needs to be made into a movie!
The demonic is real but we do have the victory and authority through Christ Jesus. Excellent book…
These two books have changed the way I view absolutely everything, I have always known that we are never “alone”, but these novels put faces to the good and the bad that are very present with us all, each and every day. I had bad dreams for a few nights after finishing the series, guess the scary pictures in my head got the better of me! ( The webpage I viewed while looking for This Present Darkness movie did not help lol ) Totally worth it tho You have talent, no doubt… and God blessed you with the ability to help the rest of us come to terms with spiritual warfare. Read several of your books, and they are all phenomenal. Keep em coming!
My first experience with This Present darkness was listening to those books done by the Library of Congress using a special 4-track recorder. Tha narrator was Roy Avers and he made those books come to life. I’m actually reading the audible version right now and love those book emensely.
Mr. Peretti, have you considered writing a prequel to the darkness series….one about the story of Tal and fighting the demons back in Babylon as you allude to several times in this present darkness….away ways I would sure be interested in reading that story, just and ideas….love your books!!
These books made the difference between staying in the New Age Movement and returning to God and church – I thank God for this author and these books every time I think where I was headed and where I am now. Write more, please.
Hi, how are you? I hope you are doing well. I wanted to say that I like This Present Darkness & Piercing The Darkness Frank Peretti.
piercing the darkness is one of the best books i’ve read, and it really tells what happens when we are united, prayerful, or even gossiping,
Hi, how’s it going? I hope you do well. I needed to say that I like This Present Darkness & Piercing The Darkness Frank Peretti.
