    1. My Mom had me read this book when I was in High School. I'm so glad she did, it really changed my life.It's the reason I don't watch the news on TV, ever. It's the reason I question any kind of 'fact' that comes from television. It's the reason that I still feel like news television is just a really great soap opera.Granted, being 15/16 years old and reading this book is going to make an incredible impression on you, but this is one of those books that stuck with me through the years and changed [...]


    2. This was a struggle that I'll admit I could not finish. Poor plot and suspense writing that traded off with evangelical preaching. I'm not against Christian or other religious novels, but this one did not master the technique of religious writing for entertainment value and the general population.


    3. I'm not certain this story would stand up to rereading, but it did me incalculable good service as an early teen: in parallel with its plot, it cogently argued that the combined structure of market forces and federal regulations in the U.S. makes television the weakest of journalistic mediums. The triple threat of politicized oversight, competitive ratings, and investment (from advertisers and shareholders alike) makes it simply impossible for broadcast television to get any closer than "news-ba [...]


    4. 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 more personal than his others. If yo [...]


    5. Peretti's books are hard to get intoally 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 death(s). All the time you are asked the question: "What is Truth?" and if a person finds Truth, do they tell the world and not care what people thinkor bury it? Deals with s [...]


    6. Wow. This book really penetrates the surface of worldly views and digs into the reality of the news world and the abortion industry. Although it was a bit of a slow start (hence 4 stars), the author built up the plot skillfully, coming to a riveting and dramatic climax. Often very tragic but at the same time eye opening - this is an exhilarating read!


    7. John Barrett in Frank E. Peretti’s “Prophet” is the star anchor man on NewsSix, but his father has developed a reputation among the masses as a religious pro-life nut. Even Governor Hiram Slater wishes the elder John Barrett would just leave him and his campaign alone. What seems to be a case of religion against politics soon turns into a possible murder case and medical malpractice.This story dares to delve into a controversial topic, but does so from the anchor desk of a top notch media [...]


    8. This book is very different from the previous ones that I had read from Frank Peretti, because there are no angels or demons, neither dragons but a lot of journalistic chaos and a lot of description of the management of the TV. It was a very realistic story about the day in journalism, about how the information operate and the power groups. I found the characters most human and real (despite the supernatural gift of John Barrett) and as always, Frank Peretti makes every good story has a good mes [...]


    9. This is the powerful tale of John Barrett, anchorman for NewsSix, who not only catches his producer fabricating a story and lying to cover her tracks but he hears voices as well. Barrett's father's death is beginning to look suspicius and his son wants to get under his skin. What could be more exciting than another of Frank Peretti's strong, face-paced stories of spiritual warfare. Highly recommended read.


    10. Peretti has written a story that's more than fiction. News reporter/anchor John Barrett lives in a make-believe world until his father is murdered, but not before Dad passes on his spiritual mantle to John. He then sees the faces and hears the voices behind the physical features of persons and resolves to help the suffering.



    11. An amazing look into the abortion industry and the toll it takes on individual lives. I loved it. Probably my favorite Peretti book. First read it in high school and have re-read it several times since.




    12. In the midst of a hotly contested election, news anchor John Barrett has more than his share of stresses; he increasingly feels like his role in the media is less journalism and more entertainment; he’s estranged from his ex-wife and his college-age son; his father is a crazy fundamentalist Christian that’s harassing one of the political candidates. And then . . . well, on top of all that, what to make of these strange voices, these strange hallucinations, these . . . visions? It’s a great [...]


    13. *** This review is for the unabridged version only. I may have given it more stars if I had read a more condensed version.***I think I was hoping for a book with more spiritual drama in it, like This Present Darkness. While I appreciate a little mystery and that kept me going, there was so much technical description of the news aspect of it, I really felt the story was bogged down. Peretti writes well, and I was intrigued by the characters. It also helped that I was on the right side of the issu [...]


    14. Poorly developed storyI'm reviewing this book from a readability standpoint. From start to finish this book felt rush, yet dragged on at the same time. In quite a few places it seemed like something would happen just because the plot demanded it. I kept reading thinking that there would be a plot twist at the end. However the ending almost as much of a disappointment as the rest of the book. I've read quite a few Frank Peretti books and this is by far his worst.


    15. Really enjoyed this book. It is interesting to see that much of what was going on even 10 years ago when this book was written is still hot trigger topics today. I think it also sheds light on the relevancy of the bible and how we really need to listen to the warnings and pay attention to the lies we believe and the truths we cover up. It is easy to get swept away into a world that is lost without realizing it. Glad to have read this at this time.


    16. I thoroughly enjoyed every page of this book. As per his style, Peretti grabs you from the first page. Even though it was written in 1992, it uncovers the corruption in the media and in the government. There were many times I wanted to share a story of something that had happened with someone, only to remember it was in this book I was reading. To me, that’s the best kind of book: you feel like it’s reality.


    17. The life chosen by us is not necessarily the life we're destined for. Fame battles right. Relationships change who we think we are and make us better. This book has a bit of everything, and I found it very encouraging.


    18. This book left me unsettled. The entire time I read it, I switched between loving the message and just being ridiculously horrified by what was within. It was powerful. It was great. It hurt to read it. But it's a necessary addition to Christian fiction.


    19. This book could be the best one Frank Peretti has ever written. It is spot-on in the issues it addresses, and he wrote it in the early 90s, which only makes it all the greater. All these issues are hot topics today, and he hits the nail on the head.


    20. SummaryJohn Barrett, handsome news anchor for NewsSix, has a fairly average life—until he begins to hear the voices. First he hears wailing and groaning in his neighborhood that no one else can hear. He hears a waitress weeping over a lost friend, even though it’s not audible to anyone but himself. He hears one of his co-workers shrieking in agony, but no one else sees the pain in her face, and she hotly denies her anguish. His co-workers worry: Is this because of his father’s recent and m [...]


    21. Hard to put downI liked the morals and Christian values of the book and didn't like the wordy descriptions. It's hard to put any Frank Peretti's book down. He's and excellent writer.


    22. This is the second or third (or more) time I have read this book - and I still find it grips my attention.




    23. Written in 1992, this book could have been written today (2017). Its relevance to the bias in the media and the cover up of the abortion industry is just as true todayor more so!!


    24. I thought the characters in the book Prophet were really well developed and I was able to place myself in the situations that were mentioned in the book with relative ease. The author, Frank Peretti, did an amazing job creating the characters and making you feel as if you knew them. He used detail and expressions to develop the characters and make them realistic and very believable. He also used the visions John, the main character in the book, was seeing to show deeper into the other characters [...]


    25. Another excellent book from Frank Peretti - very thought-provoking and applicable to current events today.
