Publisher's Summary

Nothing interesting ever happened in the small, eastern Washington wheat town of Antioch - until now. Without warning, Antioch has suddenly become a gateway for the supernatural - from sightings of angels and messianic images materializing in the sky to a weeping crucifix with the power to heal.

Yet these miracles are only the beginning of something much bigger: the return of the Messiah as prophesied in the Bible. Then a self-proclaimed prophet mysteriously appears at a local ranch with a message - but is it a message from God?

In search of answers and hungry for miracles, the national media - along with the curious - flock in droves to the all-but-forgotten town. The startling secret behind this visitation ultimately pushes one man into a supernatural confrontation that will forever alter the lives of everyone involved.

(P) and ©1999 by Frank Peretti

Excellent book - riveting!

Excellent plot, and well put together. At times it is suspenseful, and mysterious, but it is always very interesting. It takes a few twists and turns along the way. It is also well read. In some ways this is a departure from some of this other books, since it always stays in the realm of what WE can see and touch. For this story, this makes it better.

Disappointing.

listened to first 5 minutes and couldn't continue due to bad sound. Also did not realise this is an abridged version of the original when it was offered as a special.

A Request

Any additional comments?

A page turner for sure and worth a credit. I would also like to put a plug in here to the author or publisher if they should happen to read this review. Would you please consider putting the Cooper Kids Adventure Series into an audio format? I think it would be a big winner, at least I know that we would buy it. Thanks

Can't put it down

What made the experience of listening to The Visitation the most enjoyable?

Joseph Campanella did an excellent job with the voice. The story line will keep you in suspense. Just who is this Brandon? Where does he gets these powers? Our hero former Pastor Travese helps us to figure out what is happen in the small city of Antioch. I have recommended this book to all my friends. This is my favorite book written by Frank Peretti.

What did you like best about this story?

The story line of a town believing Brandon is really Jesus?

What about Joseph Campanella’s performance did you like?

Excellence - 5 stars

If you could take any character from The Visitation out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Pastor Travese
