Ted Dekker’s new book Skin hits stores tomorrow. It is his first release in the “secular” book world. His previous books have been best-selling Christian novels, but his readership has grown and moved beyond just Christians.
As my favorite author of today, I like to compare him to my favorite author of yesterday. He strikes me as the C.S. Lewis of today – more concerned with being a writer who is a Christian than a Christian writer.
Dekker writes extremely fast pased, action oriented books with intriguing characters and plot twists. His books are written from a Christian perspective and carry a spiritual undertone, but they are not “preachy.” His ideas are informed by his faith.
If you are out in Barnes and Nobles or Borders tomorrow, pick up a copy of Skin. You will not be disappointed.
