    • Well done ted Dekker and Bill Bright! This was an amazing, inspirational and very moving story! This book had me grinning from ear-to-ear in one chapter and eyes nearly welling up with tears in another. This book focuses on young Caleb. A boy rescued from a monastary that is under attack in Ethiopia. He is brought to the United States by Jason and Leiah who quickly come to witness something miraculous about the boy. He has the power to heal! Trust into a new world, with religious leaders all cla [...]


    • This is an excellent book. It was recommended to me by a big Ted Dekker fan after I complained about feeling "cheated" at the end of Dekker's book Thr3e. He said that if I were only going to read one Dekker book, it should be Blessed Child, written with Bill Bright (founder of Campus Crusade for Christ).This book is about a young boy named Caleb, who is raised by an Ethiopian Orthodox Christian monk. He spends all ten years of his life in a monastery, sheltered from the world at large, before be [...]


    • Towards the middle, I was getting annoyed with how little unpredictability there was. I was ready for a big ending. TD and BB delivered beautifully.Caleb kept getting popular and healing over and over at first, then he started losing it, was poisoned, shot, abducted, and shot. I loved how innocent and joyful he was, though. He never wanted to show off, just wanted people to see the truth of God's kingdom. He jumped and praised the Lord every time his prayers were answered! (And Caleb's prayers w [...]


    • Ted Dekker and Bill Bright seemed like an unlikely writing team, but this story captured my attention from Page 1. Like other readers who reviewed this book, I fell in love with the child and found myself wishing we could all be like him. The supernatural power of prayer seemed "fictional" to this 21st century American, but the words of Bill Bright at the end reminded me that the skepticism of Americans is a Western characteristic. Missionaries and Christians in other parts of the world have see [...]


    • This is quite simply one of the absolute best books I have ever read. Five stars doesn't do it justice. I was a little skeptical going into it; I had just finished another Ted Dekker book that pretty much soured my expectation of what his books should be (this is my 20th book of his, and that last one was the worst). But THISis is just phenomenal. I don't want to give too much away, but just READ IT!! Seriously; you won't be the same afterwards. It really, really makes you think; and it really m [...]



    • This is a great book. It is very compelling and is very focused on Christ. The point of the book is that a healed heart is a very powerful thing. A character in the book mentions that it makes sense that God can heal a person, but it is amazing that He heals hearts. The character says, “Whoever said that a straightened hand was more dramatic than a healed heard anyway?”


    • This book was written by two authors, so I really don't know who to aim my fury at. When I pay money for a book, I do not expect to get an info-mercial for the author's religion! This review does come from my non-Christian perspective. Stop. I didn't say from my athiest perspective, now did I? But enough about me.The first part of this book kept me reading like it was my job. It had a fabulous supernatural mystery, good against evil theme, a sweet romance, and lots of adventure and suspense. I w [...]


    • This was a splendid, powerful, and challenging novel. Definitely five stars—no complaints whatsoever!The plot of Blessed Child follows an orphan boy who was raised in an Ethiopian monastery his whole life. He had never been outside it except for when he was a very young baby but he is forced to flee the monastery when enemies boldly attack. Relief expert Jason Marker and French Canadian nurse Leiah help him escape but don't realize Caleb's special power until later. As the world falls in love [...]


    • Caleb is an ordinary child with miraculous power,who is envied by people. Jason Marker takes a risk in taking Caleb from a monastery, aware of the consequences that will follow. Although he knows that taking him will come with great responsibility, he is willing to do all what it takes. Getting to know Caleb is harder then it seems for most people because for the most part he is mute. Speaking out with bring up the painful past and shocking revelations at what he chooses to reveal. There are man [...]


    • 5+⭐️ this is one of the best books I ever read!!! I suggest you listen to the audio bookoh, was it amazing! I was there with them,I felt the power they feltMy heart was leaping when they rejoiced. This is exactly what I want a book to do to me when I read or listen to it! I highly recommend it.


    • I tried the author on a recommendation fromone of my book friends. I had always wanted to try some Christian fiction and he was recommended as a good choice. The book was well written and the characters OK although I never really bonded with them. I have to say that Christian fiction was not for me although I am pleased I tried it. This book was simply not for me.


    • Another great book by Ted Dekker! I love the Christian message coupled with some good drama - and a touch of romance. It was also very inspirational and kindled my passion to walk in the Kingdom while living here on earth.




    • I really liked the Character Caleb in this story. He reminded me of myself after I accepted Christ, innocent and full of the light of the spirit.


    • I'm learning that I am simply not a fan of Ted Dekker. Not because I disagree with his beliefs or anything, but because I find his writing to be a bit simple and his characters one-dimensional. (Ex. He uses colloquialisms outside of character dialogue. Also, in this book anyway, he refers to microphones as "mikes" - maybe this is shame on the editors too, but the term is short for microphone and should be "mic", etc.) Originally I thought he was an improved Frank Peretti - a Christian writer who [...]


    • Five stars are reserved for books that challenge me to think and open my mind to ideas and possibilities that shape my perspective and life. This book has done just this. The topic of the Holy Spirit is mysterious, but important. Dekker and Bright do not attempt to explain how the Trinity work together as God, but the picture is painted for us to see it in action. One may be tempted to criticize how the power of the Holy Spirit is depicted in the story, but that misses the greater point, as God [...]


    • Blessed ChildThis should be a must read for people who cannot feel the power of the Holy Spirit in their livesGod’s NOT dead. He is present in our lives every day, every moment, every thought. Reflecting on this book causes you to realize your thinking is way off, and it’s time to change that! Well done, Ted!!


    • Must Read.Not optional This well crafted story will change your Spirit then your Life.I praise God for providing the truth in so many ways.




    • Powerfully moving taleThis is a powerful and moving tale about a child who has extraordinary gifts. It's about love, grace and mercy on display.


    • Very interesting and constantly kept me on my toes, made it obvious how people might not be as they seem and showed truly how the human mind is still showing the greatness of God.



    • Spell MAGNIFICENT!It's this book! Oh my, no words can express how I was so touched and inspired by this!I recommend it to Christians and especially non-believers, who are always questioning God's power in anyone's life. You must read this besides the Bible! The story is very interesting because of the protagonist's mysterious characteristic. Caleb, is a blessed child truly, as he have the Holy Spirit within him and that's what makes him blessed and can perform miracles beyond human understanding [...]


    • This was an interesting book. After having let it sit unread on my shelf for many years, I decided to [finally] read it. I would say it seeks to answer the question of what it might be like if Christians followed/believed/loved God with all of their hearts, souls, minds, and strength. It also questions why God's power is not revealed and we do not see Christians doing 'greater things than Jesus' that Jesus promised would happen in Scripture. It is divided into three parts; at the start of the se [...]



    • ‘Blessed Child’: Ted Dekker & Bill Bright New York Times best-selling author, Ted Dekker, has teamed up with Bill Bright to deliver yet another dynamic novel to Christian fiction fans. ‘Blessed Child’ begins in Ethiopia. Jason, a Peace Corps worker, only planned on honoring the request of a friend. Asked to rescue an orphan from a monastery, he works his way through a war zone to find the boy. Father Matthew, the child’s caretaker, not only delivers the child, but also a Red Cross [...]


    • I have read several Ted Dekker novels, and will say that the writing quality is inconsistent. Some have been less than good, some have been excellent. This one falls in the okay-to-good category. I will admit the writing held my attention. The action and drama were mostly compelling - I stayed up until 2:00 AM reading the other evening. That's a good sign it had my attention. Dekker's novels almost always deal with spiritual issues, spiritual battles. I think trying to adequately describe a pers [...]
