Oracle Web Application Programming For Pl/Sql Developers uThis is a long read but what a GREAT book Hard to imagine this was written 27 years agoit s asp to date on issues as it was then I highly recommend this book This is the first book I ve read by Peretti and I enjoyed it The issues tackled in this book still ring true today some twenty years after publication abortion the reliability of news and the struggle to follow faith despite how it might hurt careers I felt a connection to the varied characters and none of them was idealized nor did they make Christianity seem shallow or easy The idea of a modern day prophet was both entertaining and provoking in our age where we are often ick to scorn
VISIONS SOME OF THE WRITING STYLE Some of the writing style like reading a script but that was intentional on the authors part to fit with the news theme This style was fun for a bit but it dragged a little near the end This is one of only a few books that I felt would do better as a movie than a book IF you liked this book you are going to like Peretti s newest book Illusion If you liked Peretti s other works such as The Oath or the Present Darkness series the trend in reviews seems to indicate that you won t enjoy this as much In Prophet Peretti hits the mark with his development of relationships The characters are real and you can feel their hurt and their hopes Peretti does a good job of making you want them to win and to heal this book seems personal than his others If you like reading about grand melodramatic battles between good and evil this story isn t going to sate you view spoiler The ending was also #Depressing Mainly Because It Featured #mainly because it featured typical fate #of most prophets I m wondering if Peretti interviewed at least one real prophet because he hits #most prophets I m wondering if Peretti interviewed at least one real prophet because he hits aspects of that curse right on the nose However for those who do suffer from such a curse it would have been nice to read about a prophet with a happy ending I guess that s not the Biblical Truth though is it hide spoiler Peretti s books are hard to get intoreally slow in the beginning Although his books always finish with an amazing ending Same goes for Prophet Prophet was an interesting read Very theological Throughout the entire book you follow the story of a TV anchorman a reporter a rebel son and families and friends dealing with deaths All the time you are asked the estion What is Truth and if a person finds Truth do they tell the world and not care what people thinkor bury it Deals with some other interesting issues abortion and consumerism just to name two Probably best for grades 11 Frank Peretti affectionately known as The Father of Christian Fiction became known to me at a very early age I was likely in sixth or seventh grade A thriller that penetrates to the very heart of a vast struggle that threatens to tear our society apart Successful. ,
Remember because in the fourth I started attending Sunday School regularly during which time my dad and stepmother gave my sister and I Bibles for Christmas A couple years later my grandparents gave me Peretti s The Cooper Kids It was a nice box set and though I tried getting into a couple of them maybe all four I just couldn t do it Specifically I couldn t get into reading The reading bug wouldn t infect me for another couple years Fast forward to spring 2012 The premise of Illusion astounded me
And I Knew II knew I to read it soon Then in December of 2013 I read his to read it soon Then in December of 2013 I read his This Present Darkness I gave both two stars I never thought I d read another with the possible exception of House and only because he co wrote it withTed Dekker an author I very much admire I #m awfully glad that i took a chance #awfully glad that I took a chance this one because Prophet was impressive and very entertaining Crash We re inside the building sailing past rafters cables floodlights and then like a roller coaster going over the top we nose over dropping down past rigging wires lights monitors into the open expanse of the NewsSix set heading for the news desk where John Barrett and Ali Downs are ready and waiting to inform Les Altaens : Peuple turc des montagnes de Sibrie us accepting with ease that we have fallen from the sky and through their ceiling to get there One of its easily discernible facets was the prose itself as the passage above makes clear Not that the entire novel was written as such but a lot of it approximately fifty percent benefited from that distinctive style It was almost immediate thus pulling me in further and was reminiscent of bird s eye POV Given that the protagonist John Barrett was a news anchorman this creative choice was a smart move that Peretti pulled off with pizazz Prophet was less concerned with plot though the whole was very engaging and much concerned with theme and character development In fact the themes were as developed as I could imagine Specifically the pacific northwestern author originally from Lethbrige Canada exposed the sad realities of the media s influences weaving his fiction together seamlessly almost effortlessly With it he posed very appositeestions what exactly is news What makes those stories newsworthy How much is profit and how much benefits society How does sensationalism come into play when they decide which stories to cover and which to discard At the heart of the novel though was the story of our likeable protagonist and his artistic son Carl as they battle spiritual forces At times they fought each other as the past made itself known in irreparable ways You can t alter or nsee it All you could do is go forward in the hopes that you learned something that those. News anchorman John Barrett is caught in a suspenseful moral and spiritual battle over the importance of Truth Using. ,

Mistakes ignorance and neglect might stay there where they belongedin the past Paint was everywhere The canvas was all but invisible nder splatterings smears globs and dashes of paint of all colors The walls were speckled and splattered too as were the floor the windows and several of Carl s other worksAnd he was still digging it out of jar after jarthrowing the stuff blindly crazily his vision blurred with tears Together John and Carl Barrett alongside a ragtag group were tasked to crack a sprawling mystery fraught with peril moral implications the government and an issue that s relevant today than it was thirty years ago pro life vs choice And of course coming from Peretti the Father of Christian Fiction there was plenty to be said about faith as his characters grappled with the world each other and their individual religious dispositions That was a little much at times I get why some readers criticized it for being didactic About halfway through certain details pertaining to the investigative mysteries inevitably coupled with the spiritual realm began coming to light and the whole soon escalated losing control The stakes couldn t have been higher With it the characters and political motivations grew increasingly fascinating and I couldn t put it down Actually from the get go Prophet was one book that had my enthusiastic attention I thought about the characters and situations often which is what a good book should do Part of why it resonated was the ease of prose which I came to reconcile not as overly simplistic or nrefined although those adjectives wouldn t be incorrect but naturally the way he talks Surely there s nothing #Wrong With Refraining From Grandiose Syntax I Prefer The Natural #with refraining from grandiose syntax I prefer the natural Could I have done without some of the cliche terms or nnecessary exclamation points Sure But I can t fault it too much And again the consistent bird s eye view really worked Seeing everything nravel and develop the way they did helped put me in #the protagonist s mindset His worldview you know Not only that but the supporting characters kind of #protagonist s mindset His worldview you know Not only that but the supporting characters kind of in out and around John Barrett NewsSix at six making the reader privy to some of their backstories and thought processes even when John wasn t around In other words third person omniscient and in this instance it was extremely effective Another reason why it flowed so freely stemmed from the explored issues and the deadly conseuences of those choices It all felt very believable rarely contrived Clearly Peretti did his research The end thoughwowed me on multiple levels Everything came full circle in an incredibly profound awesome and personal way To say would spoil its inherent beauty. All the elements of edge of your seat fiction master storyteller Frank Peretti weaves a prophetic tale of our times.
