Blessed Child Book Review

Book Review of Blessed Child
  by Ted Dekker with Bill Bright

REVIEW BY: L. Bankhead

      I will tell you right now that this is the third, possibly fourth time I have read this book.  Obviously, I'm going to tell you I really like it. 

    This books opens with a bang, like any other Ted Dekker book you may choose to read.  The action begins at the Debra Damarro, an Ethiopian Orthodox monastery in a remote corner of Tigre in northern Ethiopia.  A boy is rescued from near death, all the while, his liberators are running for their lives as well.  Ending up in America, this rescued boy, Caleb, is unveiled to be something special.  Something so remarkable, the world has not seen anything like him before.  You must read to find out if his powers are psychic, supernatural, miracles, or purely a child that walks with God. 

    I have always loved this book for many different reasons.  Mostly because it will really make you deeply question your own ability to walk in God's kingdom.  Also, because Dekker is just a plain out amazing author.  I don't think there are many stories tellers as good as he is around today.  He may just be the best.  This book is followed up with the sequel A Man Called Blessed which is also remarkable.  I recommend this book to anyone ages 12 and up for a good adventure read that also contains strong life application.  Note to parents:  There are guns, shooting, and some mild violence by a horrid caregiver.  Grab a copy and get to reading!

(I received this book free from BookLook Bloggers as part of their blogging program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

NEXT UP!  Reviews coming your way this Spring....
