In this timely re-release of Ted Dekker’s collaboration with the 80 year old evangelist, Bill Bright, this book gives a combined thriller and spiritual makeover. With biblical themes translated into high adventure - with a rich strand of romance, the creative imagination of Dekker and theological mind of Bright produce an action-packed, fast moving plot around the intriguing issue of child miracle workers.
The drama focuses on Caleb, a 10-year-old Ethiopian boy with extraordinary powers: raising a man from the dead, restoring sight to a blind boy, healing a paraplegic. Amid the turmoil surrounding the boy’s miraculous abilities Jason, of the Peace Corps, must spirit the boy away to safety with the help of Leiah, a Red Cross nurse. Escaping to the US, Caleb falls under the influence of Father Nikolous, who loses no time in exploiting those powers for his own financial gain. As if that wasn’t enough for any 10 year old to deal with, a powerful politician realises that Caleb holds the key to the destruction of his presidential ambitions, and contracts for the boy's murder.
But nothing can prepare any of them for what happens next.

Blessed Child by Bill Bright; Ted Dekker was published by Thomas Nelson in May 2013 and is our 24150th best seller. The ISBN for Blessed Child is 9781401688783.
"Superbly written and deeply captivating" - CBA Marketplace.
“This is another one of those rare novels that works on two levels -- it's a good read and it will challenge you in your Christian walk. Bill Bright's afterward notes that he believes a good novel on biblical themes can reach many more people than a normal theological work (similar to how Jesus' use of parables was so outstanding). BLESSED CHILD is a good example of how that can be true.” – Other Retailer’s Reader Review.
“All of Ted Dekker's novels give us a wonderful picture of the love of God in action, but Blessed Child has this tranquility in the face of extreme danger that is really compelling. I felt like a totally refreshing shower had washed over me after reading this book--an absolutely unique experience, something I've never encountered in any other book I've read. The only thing that comes close is Leif Enger's Peace Like a River, though the two books are very different. I truly felt like a blessed child of God after reading this book.” – Other Retailer’s Reader Review.
“That the book caused me to evaluate my desire for Christ and whether He was still my first love was this book's success for me, not the fiction. The story dragged in places for me and the constant use of the phrase "The Greek" to describe the priest threw me for some reason. In some ways, all the good characters seemed the same and all the bad characters seemed the same. Only Caleb and the dying man really stood out, but perhaps that was intentional. After the last page, I was on my knees, so the book did its job. :)This is my second Dekker title. It won't be the last.” – Other Retailer’s Reader Review.
