The sequel to "A Blessed Child", but not nearly as good. I had a hard time getting into this book. Once I did, I liked it well enough, but it didn't capture me and sweep me away as I like a book to do. I've found that's the case for many of Ted Dekker's books actually. With the exception of the Circle trilogy they've all been books I haven't had any problems putting down.

On the other hand, with the exception of "Thr3e" (which disappointed me) they've also all been books that fascinated me by what the power of God can do. I would love to have a faith like Caleb's. It's not that I'd like to be able to do the things he can do - although obviously that would be cool ;-) - but I'd love to experience that sensation of swimming in God's love. I think I'm allowed glimpses of what it would be like from time to time, but never completely drown in it as he does. That would be amazing!
