Item description for The Drummer Boy: A Christmas Tale by ted dekker...
Overview In a secular world where telling the "fable" of Chistmas and Jesus Christ is against the law, a boy who learns about the life of Christ after he finds it written inside an old drum decides to spread the word.
A Christmas tale with a modern twist.
We all love singing the Christmas carol "The Little Drummer Boy." Our hearts swell as the poor boy offers his best, meager gift to the Baby in the manger, and we smile in joy as the infant Lord graciously smiles His thanks. Now Ted Dekker brings a modern twist to this beloved song of hope, acceptance, and joy. This modern fable takes place in a large city where Christmas has been banned and replaced by a holiday that celebrates prosperity. All Christmas songs are also banned.

More About ted dekker
Ted Dekker (born October 24, 1962) is a New York Times best-selling author of more than twenty novels. He is best known for stories which could be broadly described as suspense thrillers with major twists and unforgettable characters, though he has also made a name for himself among fantasy fans.
Dekker was born to missionaries who lived among the headhunter tribes of Indonesia. Because his parents’ work often included extended periods of time away from their children, Dekker describes his early life in a culture to which he was a stranger as both fascinating and lonely. It is this unique upbringing that forced him to rely on his own imagination to create a world in which he belonged.
After leaving Indonesia, Dekker graduated from a multi-cultural high school and took up permanent residence in the United States to study Philosophy and Religion. Upon earning his Bachelor’s Degree, he entered the corporate world and proceeded to climb the proverbial ladder. But his personal drive left him restless and, after many successful years, he traded corporate life for wide range of entrepreneurial pursuits that included buying and selling businesses, healthcare services, and marketing.
In the early nineties while visiting a friend who had just written a book, Dekker decided to pursue a long held desire to be a novelist. Over the course of two years he wrote two full length novels before starting from scratch and rewriting both. Now fully enamored by the the process and the stories, he realized that storytelling was in his blood and a new obsession to explore truth through story gripped him anew.
He sold his business, moved his family to the mountains of Western Colorado and began writing full-time on his third novel. Two years and three novels later his first novel was published.
Dekker’s novels have sold over 5 million copies worldwide. Two of his novels, Thr3e and House, have been made into movies with more in production. Dekker resides in Austin, Texas with his wife Lee Ann and two of their daughters.

This is a MUST READ!! Jan 18, 2007
Ted Dekker has taken a timeless story, and brought it up to the possible 21st Century. Set in a world that views the Christmas story as nothing more than a dangerous myth, one small child dares to make a stand. It was an inspirational read, and you will love it. Great for Christmas or any other time of year.
Great book! Jan 15, 2007
Everyone here liked this book. You can't help but realize it could really happen if political correctness has it's way-an eye opener.

This is a cute book to bring Christ back into Christmas. Though, too, me it limits some serious elements of the story of Christ, it is none the less a great story about how one following the leading of God can make a difference. And, this book illustrates the reminder of the lost part of the holiday.
