The tiny college town of Ashton becomes the unlikely battleground in a cosmic clash between good and evil. Unseen by the human protagonists, armies of angels and demons wage war against one another in the spiritual realm for the souls of the people of Ashton. Up against supernatural forces, the future of the town seems bleak – but the power of prayer might be able to influence the outcome of the fight.
This fast-paced thriller birthed an entirely new genre, setting the standard for spiritual suspense. It has since sold over 2 million copies worldwide, sparking a renewed interest in the concept of spiritual warfare.

One of the Best
This is one of my favorite books, on all levels. I read it years ago, in my early 20s, and I often think back to this book, still. Not only is it a well written story in general, but it does a wonderful job of depicting an unseen battle in this world.
This Present Darkness
Amazing book! A great illustration of what the battle in the heavenlies could be like. My prayer life is certainly encouraged and edified by reading this book.
Piercing the Darkness is a fabulous follow up.
