The Ted Dekker challenge

I've just finished yet another Ted Dekker book.

In two words... pure awesomeness.

Without any exaggeration - I wholeheartedly believe that Ted Dekker is one of the best writers currently on the planet - and it just so happens that he is a Christian.

Naysayers.. don't stop reading this post just yet...

Many of you probably think that Christian fiction authors only write second rate drivel, cheesy romance novels or cliched 300 page evangelistic tracts...

Think again.

I encourage you... no, urge you... no challenge you to read a Ted Dekker novel. Regardless if you are a follower of Christ or not, you will be impacted by many of Dekker's stories.

The man is incredibly talented - and his tales, plots, twists, messages are nothing short of brilliantly crafted and some would say divinely inspired.

One word of caution though - don't expect your average Christian romance novel.

You still need to do a post on your bookshelf -- on which I fail to see the Lost Books.

hey Ted Dekker fans, what is the name of his newest book? A friend wants it for their Christmas present.

Green - but it's only available in Hardcover at the moment. Your friend may be referring to Boneman's Daughters (it's the latest softcover)- at Manna Whangarei.
