Book of the Week: A Look at Author Ted Dekker

Suspenseful page-turners that challenge the reader's assumptions are the forte of author Ted Dekker. His novel, THE PRIEST'S GRAVEYARD, is highly recommended! A sequel will be released in October.

Library patron, avid reader and former English teacher Edward Roth recommends author Ted Dekker for suspenseful page-turners that are also thought-provoking. Ed recently read THE PRIEST'S GRAVEYARD, published by Center Street, 2011 (360 pages). Its sequel, THE SANCTUARY, will be released this October.

Ed says about Dekker’s books:

When I travel I like to read easy reads.  I can put the book down and go to sleep, or get off the airplane, or see the sites.  The easy reads won’t intrude on these things.  However, when I get home I like to read disturbing and thoughtful books.  I like to go to bed wondering what the next chapter will bring me.  I like to finish a book and have it bounce around in my thoughts for several days. 

I like to think about the book in relation to current events, what is happening in my life, and spiritual issues.  THE PRIEST'S GRAVEYARD is a disturbing and thoughtful type of book.  Maybe I don’t agree with the actions of the protagonist, but his actions and reasons for his actions sure make me think.  Dekker always gives me what I want to read when I am home.
