Review: A Man Called Blessed by Ted Dekker and Bill Bright

"A Man Called Blessed", by Ted Dekker and Bill Bright, was a fantastic book. A sequel to "Blessed Child," this book is another raving success. The continuation of the story of Caleb, this book focuses on Caleb as the man he has become and his struggle to regain the "childhood wonder" he has lost. I found this book more realistic to the average christian. This man is me, held down by the bog of culture and the restraints of day-to-day life but knowing that there is something more and struggling to find it. This man is every christian and I found it inspiring and an overall good read.

The reality is that this book cannot compare with Dekker and Bright's first book, "Blessed Child." It is a story. A good story, but still a mere fictional feel-good tale that leaves the reader satisfied. I would definitely suggest this book to anyone who has read the prequel, however be prepared that it will not meet with the expectations you had after reading the first. But by all means, continue the story!
