After reading the book and reading the other reviews, I found it quit commical that people take reading so seriously. Yes, it was trilling, Yes, it isn't writing on the same plane as Charles Dickens, and Yes, it falls short of conforming to exact biblical specifications that everyone thinks it should have. So what. The book was obviuosly written to entertain not to alter the state of the universe. So just relax,enjoy, and you'll make it through......and maybe even learn something.

I truly enjoyed reading this book. The intrigue (obviously) is in having a window into the spirit realm. However, I had a problem with the angels having "races". Correct me if I'm wrong, but angels are spirits, right? Spirits don't have any ethnicity, do they? I couldn't help but feel drawn into thoughts of stereotypes that one shouldn't have to entertain when reading a Christian novel. Aside from that, I really enjoyed this book. Worth the price.

I thought This Present Darkness was a good book that kept you guessing till the end. The characters were well defined and diverse at the same time. The book has plenty of action to keep you interested. The only problem with this book is that it drags on a little too long. But if you like action and and a good plot I reccomend This Present Darkness.

The most helpful thing to remember when reading Frank Perreti's spiritual warfare novels, is that they are not meant as allegories. They are fictional, but not science fictional. They represent the world as Frank Perreti and many others (myself included) believe it to be.

This Present Darkness is that rare breed of story which makes you think of what really effects your life. While Tal may not be what is behind the events in your life, This Present Darkness makes you realize that our battles in life really do contain a spiritual component.

This is a wonderful book! A little hard to get into/understand at the beginning, but a real "what if"er.
I must say, though. It cannot compete with the "Left Behind" series.
I'm gonna go start "Piercing the Darkness" now....

This book is a big departure from most Christian fiction and contains a minimal amount of conservative or End Times subjects. One of the best books I've ever read...Frank Peretti is worthy of the praise he gets!

An excellent piece of fantasy writing. However its content is not suitable as a basis for any Christian doctrine on spiritual warfare as it goes way beyond what the Bible says on these matters

I am in the study of Revalations and what is going on in the book seems like what will take place in the battle of Armeggedon. This book opens your eyes on what is going on around you.
