I went to the Evanston Public Library on Saturday and discovered that "This Present Darkness" by Frank E. Peretti was on sale for a song. I definitely bought it, although the library didn't like my song...or the dance moves...or the albino snake. They upped the price to 50 cents and then sent me on my way.
I just love this book. This will be my third time to read it. If you ever run across it, purchase it. Borrow it. Whatever. Just read it. The back of the book gives the Bible verse the book hinges on:
"For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness..." (RSV)
