    One thought on “The Visitation”

    1. Peretti can run hot and cold but here he's in top form as we follow the twin stories that make up this book. Good drama with just enough humor.There are some efforts by Peretti that haven'twell, haven't been my cup of tea. I like his attitude and his point of view, but sometimes his storytelling (in my opinion of course) leaves a little to be desired. In this case however I found myself getting involved with the injured minister and the people around him. To say too much about "what I like" will [...]

    2. Peretti presents an interesting topic. How many of us know what the Bible says about Jesus' return? How will we know him? How can we be sure? A prophet who seems to be Jesus appears in Antioch. He works miracles and inspires people all over the nation to come to the small town and worship him. Members of the Ministerial society don't know what to think about him, so how can the expect their members to?Formal Pentecostal Minister, Travis Jordan, is skeptical from the beginning, even though he is [...]

    3. As a Christian author myself, I'm interested in the genre, especially the fiction side. Peretti is the dean of Christian supernatural fiction, and this book another of his fine entries, but it seems whenever anyone tries to make spiritual "battles" into physical ones, the result is strangely anti-climactic and unsatisfying, perhaps because the greatest conflicts exist in the human heart, and when you try to put those conflicts into the workaday world, they seem somehow less compelling. Neverthel [...]

    4. I didn't know what I was going to get myself into - reading a well known Christian author's novel for the first time. I saw that quite a few of my friends and people I follow on had read this novel. Almost everyone gave it a 4/5, and I'm here thinking like, "So why the one less star?"I really understand why now. The Visitation has a very interesting premise and it is an all-around good novel. I think the only reason why someone might not enjoy it so much is the fact that it's dragged out a litt [...]

    5. What a fascinating book! I don't usually like Peretti's novels too much (his writing style + longwindedness get on my nerves) but this one gripped me and didn't let go. Travis is so great, as are Kyle and Marian. It was interesting, seeing the different denominations portrayed in this book, as were all of Travis' flashbacks. Overall, an excellent thriller. (I just wish that Nicholls had been saved in the end.)Incidentally, this is the second Christian novel I've read where someone comes along, c [...]

    6. HERE is my all-time favorite Peretti novel!Now, about thrillers They have a very natural tendency to be extremely plot-driven. Granted, a good thriller requires a tight, unexpected plot in order to be a page-turner. A lot of thriller authors, however, construct this awesome, mind-blowing plot, but give little or not attention to the painting of their characters. Peretti handles this masterfully! He populates his exciting stories with characters that are rounded out with style and quirks.

    7. Extraordinary novel, in which the description of Christian life in America seemed to overshadow the actual supernatural plot, until you discover that they merge beautifully in the end. With this novel, I can put Frank Peretti next to C.S. Lewis and William Peter Blatty in my personal list of Christian authors, who left deep impression to me with their books.

    8. When I first picked up The Visitation, I had one question that I desperately wanted to know the answer to. How would Frank Peretti depict the man known as the Antichrist? Would he use biblical allusions or create a fictional character? These questions were clearly answered in the book.The book takes place in the small sleepy town of Antioch, Washington. The last thing this town would ever expect is the supernatural. There are sightings of angles and messianic images, and a crucifix cries liquid [...]

    9. I have heard great things about this writer (and even Ted Dekker was compared to his work/also read the book they did together and seen the movie via DVD). I read another previous work and thought it was an okay read. Now reading this one, caught my interest at certain peaks, and think it is quite a bit long with some of the backstorieso many characters to keep up with my only downfall with this read. Aside from my minor dislikes, I do like the biblical messages given and stated! "religion is a [...]

    10. "The Visitation" was an interesting Christian supernatural suspense novel. The world-building was excellent, with the details about the place and people bringing the story alive in my imagination. The characters were engaging and even the minor characters were realistic. There were so many reoccurring characters to keep track of that I occasionally had to stop and think to remember who a character was, but overall it wasn't a problem. The pacing was generally very good, but the (important) back [...]

    11. This book captivated me, not for the story itself, but for the flashbacks within the story.Travis Jordan, the protagonist, is fed-up and disillusioned with church, despite-- or perhaps because of-- having been raised in the church his whole life and pastoring for 15 years. As he wades through tangled memories of his past, we see what has brought him to this point, and also come to realize that God is not done with him yet.Having been through a ringer of church-experiences myself, I resonated wit [...]

    12. i had always been too bored to read the introduction but this time i read the introduction and it made me laugh a lot. i loved this book as a child. i truly loved [read: hated that the villain was an religious abuse survivor who didn't have a good enough attitude about christ after his preacher dad literally nailed him to a fence. my favorite part is probably when there are worms in the bread that he was throwing. thanks.

    13. A story of intrigue in this day an age with so many false teachers and preachers. An absolute must read.

    14. This book caught my interest at the start of reading it. And though it did keep my interest well all the way through it, there were times when I would get a little bored. .It’s about a fake messiah and how much trouble a fake messiah can bring you, especially this one. I don’t think these people in the book must have read their bibles much or knew it well, because the bible says if someone comes and says Jesus is here or there not to believe them or go to find out. And most of them did. But [...]

    15. Frank Peretti wrote a wonderful novel in which he explores the subject of Christ returning and people's perceptions of religion. Peretti did a great job developing all the characters and reflecting all types of "christian" personalities.

    16. Before I dive in I think its only fair to say that a big part of why I could enjoy this book so much was that I could relate so easily to the main character. Being a "preacher's kid" myself, I've struggled with the same spiritual/mental/moral dilemmas as Travis Jordan seems to be going through, and of course its being able to relate to a book that makes it really resonate with you. With that in mind I have to applaud the fact that Peretti is a "Christian author" who can actually write: so many b [...]

    17. BY FAR my favorite book by Peretti!!! Every time I read this book, I get something new out of it! It is fast paced, creative, thrilling, scary, and beautiful all at the same time. - Minimal Spoilers Ahead - This is not as much a book about a young man claiming to be Jesus, as it is about a middle aged man who has been run through the ringer of ministry, and lost everything. If you only get a false prophet, "end times" theme from this book, then I think you may be missing the point.I relate so co [...]

    18. I can't review a Peretti novel without dragging out my dusty copy of his last book and giving you a quick rundown.The Visitation happens in a little eastern Washington town called Antioch, where nothing ever happens. Overnight, it became the centre of the supernatural - with sighting of angels, messianic images in the sky and a weeping crucifix that heals.But that's only the beginning. A self-proclaimed prophet appears at a local ranch and the people of Antioch accepted him as the Messiah of the [...]

    19. First time I've read a religious novel like this one. I had put off reading a Frank Peretti for the obvious reasons but glad I did it.I originally purchased a hardback copy for 25c in a charity shop in Florida recently on vacation. I left it behind due to luggage restrictions blah blah. Anyway I just had to buy it again but it cost me a lot more !As I say it is definitely a religious story about a town which appears to have been visited by Jesus and how the town react and behave.Twinned with the [...]

    20. Character development- It had none, the characters were so forgettable. The one thing that I hated about it was the fact that you did not care about the characters, they were all over the place. I got very little if none, backgrounds, personality, etc from any of them. It was randomized and and ridiculous.Consistent plots- No story was consistent, it was all over the place. First it was talking about the Messiah coming, than it got into a romance, than it got into a priest past sins, it did not [...]

    21. This is a provocative story. Peretti deals with how misapplication of Christian teachings can damage some people so much that they become completely warped.He also really explores our desire for a Messiah we can see and hear and touch and how easily people can be led astray just because they want to believe something wonderful.Like many of Peretti's stories, it is genuinely thought-provoking and will leave you exploring how you live out your own faith--if you are a Christian.

    22. I loved this book, and I think the one thing I loved most was how it evoked such a response from me. As the main character describes all the hypocritical people he's encountered, most especially in the church, I could relate so well, that as I was reading it I felt SO FRUSTRATED. Frank Peretti writes well, and he makes it feel real. The entire plot was very good as well, and i would totally recomend this book.

    23. I actually enjoyed the first part of this book. I found the story relevant and appropriate to Christianity today. However, the ending was such a disappointment! To me it seemed as if the author said, "enough written, time to end this," and then found the quickest most "blockbuster movie" ending he could come up with and tacked it on.

    24. PRE-READI bought this book when I was 12, 13 years old at the advice of my mother because she thought it looked cool. I have to say this before I officially start it, I am agnostic borderline atheist, I am pro-choice and I am a supporter of LGBTQ+ rights.But despite all this, I want to give this book a shot.

    25. 3.4 ⭐️ I Listened via audio. The audio quality is not the best; It was hard to listen to and understand. But the story was good. I will need to listen to this again or read the plain hard copy of this book to appreciate the story.

    26. couldn't finish.I keep trying to read Peretti books and he is just too detailed for me. I like books that get to the point. I don't really care what your flowers look like in your driveway. hahaha!

    27. This was my first Peretti book, and I suppose I somehow expected more than this. The story didn't hold my interest, the plot was predictable, and the whole thing was a little dry. I'd happily give Peretti another shot, though, as this may have been just a fluke for me here.

    28. This book still haunts me, two years later. So I now give this book 5 stars. The writing may not have been phenomenal (I don't remember), but certain aspects of this story still ingrained in me.
