“The physical power of real love is staggering, because real forgiveness is staggering...”
Ted Dekker, Water Walker: The Full Story

“Always remember you have been given the power to forgive any offense, and in so doing, remove it from your awareness as far as the east is from the west. True Vision is his gift, allowing you to see no blame; forgiveness is your truest purpose in the life. Seventy times seven, always leaving the old self in a watery grave and rising to find no fault. That's grace, that's true baptism and that's good news...”
Ted Dekker, Water Walker: The Full Story

“Take a leap of faith and see that these troubled waters have no power over you unless you give it to them, and even then they lie.”
Ted Dekker, Water Walker: The Full Story

“Know that you are loved, my dear...Know that you can and will rise above all your fears. I now call you water walker. Water Walker? Yes, you walked through the waters of your fear, didn't you?”
Ted Dekker, Water Walker: The Full Story

“The day is brimming with freedom. He took another draw of the air. There's nothing like the clean smell of freedom, wouldn't you say Eden?”
Ted Dekker, Water Walker: The Full Story

Serenity Grace My favorite Author of All Time! I am an avid reader, have been my whole life, and you're the first Author I have ever purchased "Every" book you've written, and it was after reading The Circle Series that I knew I had to have Ted Dekker's Complete Works. I just love your style! And would LOVE to see a movie made of The Circle/Lost Books Series. Thank you so much, Mr Dekker!


Rheanna thanks for being my first friend on goodreads.. I love your books my favorite one recently is Outlaw.. please make more books like that :)

message 4: by Tracy

Tracy Just wanted to say The Boneman's Daughters freaked me out. I had to set it aside a few times because my imagination was tunning wild. Also, loved The Priests Graveyard! Actually I haven't read any of your novels that I didn't love.


message 3: by Robin
