Ever wondered about the supernatural?

We see plenty of books about witchcraft, the occult, and the dark side of the supernatural. How often do we look at the side of God?
Frank Peretti's book shows us the part of the supernatural that is active, alive and well today just as in what we consider to be "biblical"  times.  All of life is biblical times, because it is His Story, the story of our creator and the interaction between that creator, and us, the creation.
Peretti's novel shows us that our sugar coated view of what is inside many churches, and on the hearts and minds of mankind is not true, and he proves it in a fictional account with a biblical viewpoint.
**spoiler alert** Do not read further if you do not want information about the contents of the book. **spoiler alert**
The book of Ephesians is the contributing factor for biblical information. Peretti's book shows how the evil one can walk through the churches, even among the very elect, when we allow that darkness to be a part of our lives. The  powers and principalities, that are continually at war in the super natural world are explained and we see a what causes conflict in our lives, especially where we are the biggest threat, when we gather together to seek the truth.
