Blessed Child has the orphaned boy who grows up in a monastery with little or no contact with the outside world. He is innocence pure and simple. What happens when he's taken out to explore the real world?
When it is discovered that he can heal, forces both good and evil want this boy.
Ted Dekker weaves a fantastic tale here. You have supernatural thriller meets mild romance meets inspirational.
The book's co-author, Bill Bright adds his own afterward to nail it home for those who weren't able to pick up on the nuances throughout the story.
You'll be entertained by the story and challenged by the subtle ideas about who we are in Christ. This book was written early on in Dekker's career when he would stick with the evangelical pulse of a story. Later on he would dive more into the mainstream publishing world and open more readers to his style.
If you enjoy books with overtly religious overtones, you'll dive into this one with relish (and maybe mustard...)
