"Whoever said a straightened hand was more dramatic than a healed heart, anyway?"
A young orphaned boy was abandoned and raised in an Ethiopian monastery. He has never seen outside its walls - at least, not the way most people see. Now he must flee or die.
But the world beyond is hardly ready for a boy like Caleb. When relief expert Jason Marker agrees to rescue Caleb from the monastery, he unwittingly opens humanity’s doors to an incredible journey filled with political intrigue and peril. Jason and Leiah - the French-Canadian nurse who escapes the monastery with him - quickly realize Caleb’s supernatural power to heal. But so do the boy’s enemies, who will stop at nothing to destroy him. Jason and Leiah fight for Caleb’s survival while the world erupts in debate over the source of the boy’s power.
In the end nothing can prepare them for what they discover.

This is an amazing book it's well-written and well read.
What a great pictorial of the overwhelming love that is possible when we walk in the kingdom. I have struggled with the question, what is possible with the right relationship? This book does not give a direct "how to" but points to the journey. I loved the book.
Fresh beautiful look at Faith
Blessed Child is unique. All of Ted Dekker's novels give us a wonderful picture of the love of God in action, but Blessed Child has this tranquility in the face of extreme danger that is really compelling. I felt like a totally refreshing shower had washed over me after reading this book--an absolutely unique experience, something I've never encountered in any other book I've read. I truly felt like a blessed child of God after reading this book. And so will you, I predict.
