Publisher's Summary

National best-selling author Frank Peretti has been hailed as the undisputed master of supernatural thrillers. The New York Times calls him "the dean of the genre." His books have sold more than nine million copies and The Visitation alone has sold more than half a million.

The small town of Antioch, Washington, is a hotbed for spiritual activity. Burned-out minister Travis Jordan has been replaced by a charismatic man who looks and behaves like Christ. Suddenly, the town is abuzz with reports of miracles and religious sightings. But Travis believes the new minister is a false messiah and senses the ominous presence of pure evil.

Filled with thrilling action, The Visitation is also the author’s most personal work. Says Peretti, "It is a searching of my own heart…." Narrator Richard Ferrone delivers a rich, animated performance.

What the Critics Say

"Fans will be relieved to know that Peretti is still dedicated to suspenseful drama, and there's still plenty of spine-chilling mayhem when all hell literally breaks loose on this small-town cast of characters." (Amazon.com)

    "A Christian Novel... but still a good one!"

    I am not a Christian and avoid anything labeled as a Christian novel. However, I purchased Frank Peretti's "The Visitation" and downloaded it before discovering that it was of that genre. Having already bought it, I figured I'd give it a try fully expecting to be disappointed and quitting it early on.

    I was wrong! This is a well-written and excellently read suspense novel. Not the edge-of-your-seat variety but nonetheless a truly interesting story. You don't need to believe in God and Satan to appreciate the mystery of "The Visitation". After all, I certainly don't believe in vampires, but I enjoyed "Dracula". And Peretti is not the least bit preachy. This is a good listen and I unreservedly recommend it.

    I love to read. So, Audible has given me a chance to "read" when I normally couldn't. I really enjoy it.

    "boring"

    I have to say this is one of 2 books in my life that I just couldn't finish. I wasn't interested in the characters or what was going on at all. I made it at least halfway through the first part. This is very different from Peretti's other fast faced novels. I thought I might like different, but I don't like this.

    "Very Religious"

    Unless you are a born again christian you will find this book annoying. It shouldn't be in the category of thriller, but rather christian fiction.
