I am really bothered by some of the reviews or comments I have read on some of the blogs about this tour. I was actually looking forward to reading the different reviews and comments since like Kiss, it was a much anticipated book. Yet, when I began looking at the different blogs that have posted I am seeing nothing but attacks on Ted Dekker for this book, that it doesn't have a clear cut Christian message, that it's being published in the secular market, etc. I actually got the feeling from some of what I read that instead of us touring a book that was written by a trusted Christian author we were touring a book that was questionable.
This is what I have to say about all of it! #1 - Those who requested this book knew what kind of a writer Ted Dekker is before they even requested it. He writes about the dark spiritual world. He doesn't apologize for it, nor does he shy away from it. #2 - This book is not published via the secular market. It is published by Hachette publishing which is all Christian and has nine brands including "Faithwords". # 3- If you don't like a book fine, don't bash the author! It looks bad, especially when the group of bloggers are under the heading of "Christian", and I for one find it really disheartening.
That is really all I have to say about it.
