The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
John 1:5 (ESV)

It all begins in Bacons Corner, a tiny farming community far from the interstate . . . An attempted murder, a case of mistakenor is it covered up?identity, and a ruthless lawsuit against a struggling Christian school. Sally Beth Roe, a young loner, a burnout, a kind of leftover hippie,finds herself caught in the middle of these bizarre events, fleeing for her life while trying to recall her dark past.

Across a vast panorama of heart-stopping action, Sally Roes journey is a penetrating portrayal of our times, a reflection of our wanderings, and a vivid reminder of the redemptive power of the Cross. A companion volume to This Present Darkness, readers have purchased over two million copies of Piercing the Darkness since its publication in 1989.

It all begins in Bacon's Corner, a tiny farming community far from the interstate...An attempted murder, a case of mistaken - or is it covered up? - identity, and a ruthless lawsuit against a struggling Christian school. Sally Beth Roe, a young loner, a burnout, a kindof "leftover hippie," finds herself caught in the middle of these bizarre events, fleeing for her life while trying to recall her dark past.

Christian thriller - sequel to "This Present Darkness." "Piercing" is not as chilling as "Present."

Peretti takes common folklore of angels and demons and creates a world where they are almost tangible. The activities of humans (prayer) help the angels in their fight against demons, and the negativity of humans helps the demons. I absolutely love how he brought the spiritual and physical realms together.

This book is slow at first, but picks up about three-fourths of the way through. The build-up is well-worth the wait for the conclusion.

This novel and "This Present Darkness" are my favorites by Peretti, and I really wish he would write more with this concept. The other few I've read are good, but not as riveting as these two.
