‘Chosen’ Book Review September 29, 2012

Title: Chosen ( The Lost Books #1)
Author: Ted Dekker
Date I Finished Reading: September 28, 2012
My Rating: 5/5

This book greatly surpassed my expectations. I was a bit sceptical at first, believing it was going to be a crummy attempt at a young adult series. Needless to say, I was incorrect. The plot of the story goes like this: Thomas Hunter has selected four teenagers to assist in leading his army in battle against their enemy, the Horde. He then dismisses them on a short mission to test their skills and wisdom. His words of advice? “Think with your heart.” However, when the mismatched lot sets out, the story that unfolds is unpredictable. Is Johnis really the chosen one? Are the legends true? And are they willing to sacrifice their lives for the destiny that Elyon has called them to?
Dekker did a superb job at combining excitement, dread, suspense, and adventure. It truly left you hungry for more and eager for the remainder of the series! I definitely enjoyed this read and recommend it to you!

‘the Slumber of Christianity’ Book Review September 27, 2012

Title: the Slumber of Christianity: Awakening a Passion for Heaven on Earth

Author: Ted Dekker

Date I Finished Reading: August 25, 2012

My Rating: 2/5

I really put off reading this book for quite some time. I just was really unsure what to expect. Ted Dekker made some okay points in his book, but nothing really deep or eye-opening. Dekker used hardly any scripture to support his facts. I mean , a few passages poke in here and there, but mainly he used quotes from fiction books he has written, and his own opinion. I personally prefer to read books that are supported by scripture. There was also a couple of just really weird and disturbing things in his book.  Overall, I would say that I definitely do not recommend this book.
