Overview
This best-selling novel tells the story of a man searching for the truth as his professional and personal words crumble.

John Barrett, anchorman for the city's most-watched newscast, has quite a few problems. His comfortable world is being jarred to the breaking point. He's caught his producer fabricating a story and lying to cover her tracks-and she seems to be hiding something much bigger. Her father's "accidental" death isn't looking so accidental. And John's estranged son has returned to get the truth about the man behind the TV image. All of these events pale in comparison to the mysterious voices that John is hearing

Once again, master storyteller Frank E. Peretti has woven a tale for our times. Prophet has all the hallmarks of Peretti's fast-paced blockbuster fiction and his clear understanding of the vast struggle that threatens to tear apart the moral authority of the nation.

Publishers Description

John Barrett, anchorman for the city's most-watched newscast, is a man suddenly lost in a town he thought he owned. His comfortable world is being jarred to the breaking point.

He's caught his producer fabricating a story and lying to cover her tracks-and she seems to be hiding something much bigger. His supposedly professional and objective colleagues have descended into a dogfight over the meaning of truth. His father's "accidental" death suddenly isn't looking so accidental. And John's estranged son, Carl, has returned to get the truth about the man behind the TV image. All of these events pale in comparison to the mysterious voices that John is hearing.

Master storyteller Frank Peretti has woven a powerful tale. Prophet has all the hallmarks of Peretti's fast-paced blockbuster fiction, and his clear understanding of the vast spiritual struggle over moral authority marks every page.

Another thought provoking novel  Apr 20, 2008
This thought provoking novel addresses the abortion industry and it's power. Learn how John Barrett's faith is tested and renewed as he fights for the truth. As author Randy Alcorn discovered, it may cost much more than expected.

Prophetic vision vs. television  Nov 26, 2007
This is a departure from Peretti's usual sinister underworld dramas. The theme concerned how our media culture largely controls what we know, if we do nothing more than allow ourselves to be sucked into its enchantment. Secondarily, there was a theme that contended abortion is not the simple and safe convenience it is portrayed to be. In the first section of the book there was a lot of development of the technical aspects of TV news production. Once that was established, I was free to ride along with the characters as they bumped and twisted their way to a very satisfying conclusion. Peretti's characterizations are sometimes melodramatic, e.g. villians red in the face, screaming and trembling with rage, losing all professionalism against the story's heroes. Actually, I love melodrama, so I found it just made the tale more enjoyable. Abortion advocates will likely despise and dismiss this book. A fine read.
 
Fast-paced, interesting read  Feb 26, 2007
As I started into the book, the fast-paced writing style caught my attention, and kept me interested. The character development was good, and I found myself wanting to know more about who had killed the "Prophet", (his father), and how they would circumvent the ring of deception at Channel 6 News. I have read Peretti several times before, and enjoy his writing style, and this book kept me interested until the end!
 
A Somber But Insightful Novel  Jan 1, 2007
Frank Peretti had opened the doors to Christian fiction with "This Present Darkness" and its follow-up, "Piercing The Darkness." Peretti here leaves his two part series, with a different emphasis.

One thing to keep in mind is that Peretti is writing from a Pentecostal/Charismatic theology. Not all Christians would believe God works as he does in the book. One critic (a Christian) pointed out that the "prophecies" of protagonist John Barrett are nothing compared to the Biblical examples.

This book deals with a newscaster, and thus looks at the world of the local newsstation and some of the conflicts. It also deals with corrupt politics, and the relationship between the media and politics. The central theme of this book, though, is abortion. It involves a pair of deaths that happened due to abortions. It has one character who would consider herself to be pro-choice, yet realize there is a problem with those who cover up unrestricted abortion on demand.

One thing I've noticed about Peretti, which becomes clearer in his first four novels, is some pessimism. This is not the most uplifting book. I will also say that the climax is a little weak; he did better in the other novels I read (the two mentioned above and "The Oath").

 
Suspenseful, fast-paced read!  Jul 8, 2006
This is an excellent book!! Its fast pace keeps you on the edge of your seat! I could scarcely put it down. Peretti's three-dimensional characters are well thought out. The overall message is a good one. Peretti is not afraid to take a stand on controversial issues, yet he makes it exciting! And the end of the book leaves you feeling really good. I would recommend this book to fans of Peretti or Christian novels.
