perteti Christian fiction legend, Frank Peretti. His fifth adult book, the Visitation is no exception. It then goes on to this mysterious man who enters the town of Antioch.
He performs miracles in the same vein as Jesus Christ. The story is two fold. He and his wife travel to every kind of pentecostal church imaginable, and just about every one is crazy.
The Visitation by Frank E. Peretti
The story has a lighter feel than his others, but the dark atmosphere is still there. I nearly fell out of my chair laughing at one point! It goes from him finding a job, falling in love, then being dumped, then falling in love again, then getting married, then finding the best church to serve in….
It goes on for a very long time, and it will bore impatient readers quickly. I for one, was not bored with it at all! Who gets bored of romance? Throughout the story of the false Christ, Peretti goes to warn about the dangers of following signs and wonders, which I mentioned in my last post. These signs lead to a big spiritual deception, and by the third half, things get pretty disturbing and scary. At one scene a very young girl is murdered by a demon in a very gruesome manner.
At one point it sticks pretty close to the book in the essential story, on another it strays pretty far in details. Bad quality, mediocre acting, and rushed story line. The characters are not how I pictured them perett the book at all! That was a sad change. Story wise it is an abridged version of the book, and leaves more out than it changes.
The flashbacks are not even evident in this film, and I was very disappointed in that since the flashbacks contain some of the very best scenes from the book. The objectionable stuff is in the tone of the film. The possession scenes are poorly done as well, and are more comical than scary.
Overall this film was a disappointment, though not a complete failure. I must take note vrank this book and film are not for the unbeliever.
