Shelfari edited the description of Piercing the Darkness Saturday, August 1, 2009.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5 (ESV) 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 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 Roe's 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. "Frank Peretti kicked open the doors that all of us Christian novelists are passing through today. We owe him a huge debt." Jerry B. Jenkins, Author, The Left Behind Series
