©1992 Frank Peretti; (P)2002 Books in Motion
If you do any research into the books Peretti writes you will have no confusion as to the subject matter. CHRISTIAN author.
Personally I find it a very refreshing book and enjoyed it throughly. I found it hard to stop listening when I arrived at my destination. I wish all the Peretti books were unabridged.
Prophet had a great premise and a good start, but I wasn't real happy about the ending. I thought the themes it addressed were great: abortion, political corruption, and the influence of the media. But the excitement that I usually get from a Peretti story wasn't there for me. I would say his best are probably This Present Darkness, Peircing the Darkness, and Monster.
I really appreciated the aspect of this story because it crosses all lines. I could see the charters clearly and had several people in my life that i could see doing the very same things, also it was real and funny. People are funny and we all get caught up in stuff and I laughed several times. Another fine book by one of my favorite authors!!
As always Frank Peretti delivered a very engaging novel. I lost momentum with the character at times when he started to experience prophetic visions but the overall concept was very good. Also I would like to have known the results of the work that was done by all those striving to bring about truth and justice to the situation at hand.
I would sum this up with the phrase, "Amazing Story: Narrator?"
Frank Peretti captured the struggle of the characters life wondrously.
The narrator placed far too much emphasis on acting out different characters voices, and selected a hill-billy voice for the prophet, which was not how I would have imagined him.
This is a great story and is worth listening to despite the weaknesses of the narrator.
I love Peretti's work. The Prophet did not live up to the excitement and energy of This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness. I felt like there should have been more.
