There is a book that I have loved for some time. It is by Christian author Frank Peretti and it is called "The Visitation". Unlike most Christian novels, in my opinion, this book is actually good. The characters, storyline, and message are all great. The basic message of this book is a warning against false prophets and false christs. That is a very important message in this day of feel-good Christianity. Sadly one has to wonder if a Brandon Nickles came to our towns/churches with his claims and "miracles" would the majority of people flock to him like those in the little town of Antioch, Washington? I am afraid many would, even many who claim to be Christians. This is a warning the modern church really needs to hear. The book, by Frank Peretti, is a great read. Click Here. There is now a movie based on the book by Namesake Entertainment. The movie stars Randy Travis (Texas Ranger, Touched By An Angel), Edward Furlong (T2), and Martin Donovan (Pasadena, Law and Order). While the book is better than the movie the movie is still pretty good. The movie does not stick with the novel point by point. In fact there are some major changes but the movie is still very good. Frank Peretti was one of the producers of the film. Click Here. Visitation Movie Website. From Amazon.com "A burned-out minister in small town Antioch, Washington, must wrestle with his confusion and cynicism when a self-proclaimed messiah takes over his ministry. The replacement minister looks like Christ. He even heals the sick and performs miracles. Could this messenger of hope and renewal be the real thing? At first, this small town is abuzz with reports of miracles and religious sightings (a weeping statue of Christ, a disappearing hitchhiker warning of Christ's arrival, a soothing angel). But suddenly there's a twist of evil and demonic mystery in the air. It's up to the jaded minister Travis to track down the real story behind this visitor and somehow find a way to stop him." While the message is important, and serves as a warning to the modern church, the movie is PG-13 for very good reasons. The movie contains NO nudity or profanity. However there are several, what I will call, disturbing scenes. If you read the book first you will understand what I am talking about. I would not recommend this movie for small children (ie..under 13). However for older teenagers, and many adults (mainly in the charismatic movement) this movie/book serves as an important warning.
