Book Review: Blessed Child by Ted Dekker and Bill Bright

I've heard Dekker's name for years, but Blessed Child is the first book I've read by him.  His fans are right - he is a very good author.  His writing had me sitting on the edge of my chair in anticipation and hope.  I especially enjoyed the adventure scenes and the many scripts on the character's self discovery.  I enjoyed pondering God's great and mysterious power, and the way that he can use his followers to make himself famous. I like how Dekker and Bright used a fiction story to talk about the power of good and evil, how easily we are tainted by evil, and how quickly God can redeem us as we repent of sin.  I love the reminders of how much we change when we submit to God's leading in our lives.  I love the conversations about healing - and how healing of our hearts is even more amazing than healing of our bodies.  Readers will be challenged and inspired as they read this book.  I would recommend it to male and female readers ages 12+.  I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
