In Antioch, the former Father Travis Jordan lost his faith on God three years ago when his beloved wife was murdered and the criminals never found. Suddenly, miracles happen in the little town: the son of the newcomer and veterinary Morgan Elliot survives a car accident without a single scratch; Travis's dog Max revives after being buried; a paraplegic walks; a wounded woman and her father with brain tumor heal. In all the events, three men wearing black were seen, and then the unknown Brandon Nichols claims to be Jesus Christ. The local population worships Brandon, while Travis and Morgan feel that something is wrong and conduct an investigation, disclosing that evil has possessed the dwellers.Written by

While reading the date on a grave marker, one of the characters says, "May 13. That's nine years ago today", implying that the scene is taking place on May 13 of the current year. However, the corn in the fields is far too tall (easily over 6 feet) for that time of year. See more »

From the perspective of someone who has read numerous Peretti books, including The Visitation, I have to say that I'm quite pleased to see his books coming to film. However, there was much to this one that was left out that would have drastically enhanced the movie. It ran under 2 hours and could have easily gone a bit longer with a few blanks filled such that it flowed a little better.
I think the ultimate message was maintained, but still it did leave a bit to be desired for me. I remember a similar feeling about seeing Congo after reading the book, although this movie (unlike Congo) didn't totally suck.
