“Whoever said a straightened hand was more dramatic than a healed heart Anyway?”
A young orphaned boy was abandoned and raised in an Ethiopian monastery. He has never seen outside its walls — at least, not the way most people see. Now he must flee or die. But the world beyond is hardly ready for a boy like Caleb. When relief expert Jason Marker agrees to rescue Caleb from the monastery, he unwittingly opens humanity’s doors to an incredible journey filled with political intrigue and peril.
Jason and Leiah — the French-Canadian nurse who escapes the monastery with him — quickly realize Caleb’s supernatural power to heal. But so do the boy’s enemies, who will stop at nothing to destroy him. Jason and Leiah fight for Caleb’s survival while the world erupts in debate over the source of the boy’s power. In the end nothing can prepare them for what they discover.
- faith challenging book
For those who believe that miracles happen, but don't expect them to happen, this book will seem a bit of a stretch. It will challenge our expectation of reality. Dekker does a good job of weaving the love of Christ into the story. The gospel did not seem like a forced element, but rather a natural outcome. I thoroughly enjoyed the book..
Great Story showing not only the Power of God, but the Love that WE all Need in Order to come to Full Life in HIM.
- Loved this book
This book was an amazing read, I couldn’t put it down. Ted Dekker and Bill Bright did an excellent job. There were twist and turns, I was sitting on the edge of my seat, I laughed and cried , got angry, had my faith, and how I walk it out challenged. I was reminded that God is powerful and that though this is fiction, God really can and will do these things.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone.
