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.
Spanish Bio: Ted Dekker, autor de mas de veinticinco novelas, es un autor de mayor venta del "New York Times".

Can't put this book down Jun 13, 2008
This is my second time reading this book. Actually I read the trio of this story and read them all in less than a week. I had shared this book with a group of women as we all read them and discussed them. I wanted to own the book instead of borrowing it again and it's more powerful the second time around as I read. I know when a book is a great reader when I don't have to struggle through the first part to get into the book and this is a great book from the start. I read six chapters before I even realized how long I had been reading. A true 5 star book.
Amazing view into the spiritual world! Jan 7, 2008
I have read many of Ted Dekker's books and consider Heaven's Wager the cream of the crop. He weaves a contemporary tale of a modern day Job who loses his family, wealth and identity, but continues to fight back in clever revenge. All the while, the demonic forces of evil encourage him on his path of destruction, while his mother-in-law marches against them with fervent prayer and is rewarded with glimpses of the heavenly hosts pulling for him. This book pulls back our earthly curtain and allows us to see briefly what is happening in the unseen spiritual world: the very battle for our souls.
I can't wait to read the other two! Aug 15, 2007
My first Ted Dekker book was Thr3e. Closely following was Black, Red and White. Dekker had me sold from the get-go. At times I do get a little lost in the characters, but it's the twists and turns that Dekker is so good at and you have no idea how they will all weave together. Heaven's Wager was fantastic! Having gone through a series of devastating circumstances myself in 35-8 years, I completely identified with Kent's confusing thoughts. What is real, what is a dream and how dare I think such thoughts. Coming out on top I look back and see how the wager for my soul was just as real as this characters. If you haven't been through hell and back perhaps you can scoff and say ridiculous! If you have...then you know what hell looks like. Helen's intercessory prayer walks are phenomenol. Again, if you've been in Heaven's whisper, you know what Heaven sounds like! All I can say is Dekker knows each of these paths and describes them like no one who hasn't been there can! You won't be sorry you purchased this book.
Another great Ted!! Jul 2, 2007
Awesome and consistently well done like I've come to expect from Ted Dekker. This author is amazing.
Great Story With Spiritual Dynamics Throughout Jan 7, 2007
Heaven's Wager combines suspense, intrigue and spiritual warfare into a compelling novel.
The protagonist, Kent Anthony, loses everything he holds near and dear, much like Job of the Old Testament. Unlike Job, Kent was not a believer at the time. The losses in his life pushed him further away from God. In spite of that, God keeps working on him in a variety of ways.
The spiritual battle rages on while the other human events of the book play out.
It all combines into a page turner story. I have read several of Dekker's novels. Every one of them has been very good. This is no exception.
