Ted Dekker is a prolific author, and if any single book speaks to his writing prowess, it is Green. This novel serves as the beginning and end to the Circle series, the first three books of which were published in 2004. It is the preferred starting place for new readers and truly does end with the beginning of the previous three books. If this incredible literary feat were not enough, Green also ties into the stories of many of his other works, either loosely or directly. In total, 15 of his novels are connected by the story of Green, Black, Red, and White. This four novel series is also extraordinary in that it is allegorical. Within the books, the entire Biblical narrative is portrayed, clearly and not offensively. Green is the apocalypse. At times, this novel will pull at your heart strings, it will make you scold the characters outright, it will make you laugh, and it will even make you cry. If you are new to the Circle or Ted Dekker, be prepared to take a trip. Dive deep.
