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 Burned-out minister Travis Jordan has been replaced by a charismatic man who looks and behaves like Christ.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.

Critic Reviews

"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." (

Captivating Story

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

This story really makes you examine yourself and what you believe. It was so real.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Visitation?

When all hell started to break loose, waiting to see who survived.

What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His voice added excitement and tension. It was hard to quit listening and could hardly wait till next trip where I could here more. Only disappointing part was when it was over. Great story well told and read.

Any additional comments?

It may be an old book but every Christian should read it.

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.
