Teen FIRST–Infidel


Rhonda’s note: I’m taking a break from Fiction Friday for a couple of weeks, but will be back in full swing in December. Today’s Teen FIRST novel, “Infidel” by Ted Dekker, is a bit different, it’s a graphic novel, a fully illustrated book for big kids of all ages.

The graphics of this novel are very vivid and detailed, and the story line is truly Ted Dekker. If you have a hard time getting your son to read, this is a book for him. “Infidel” is the second in “The Lost Books Series.” I’m planning to buy the first one “Chosen” for my son for Christmas. I would recommend this for ages 12 and up, but use your discretion with younger children.

It’s the 21st, time for the Teen FIRST blog tour!(Join our alliance! Click the button!) Every 21st, we will feature an author and his/her latest Teen fiction book’s FIRST chapter!

and his book:

Thomas Nelson (November 11, 2008)

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Ted is the son of missionaries John and Helen Dekker, whose incredible story of life among headhunters in Indonesia has been told in several books. Surrounded by the vivid colors of the jungle and a myriad of cultures, each steeped in their own interpretation of life and faith, Dekker received a first-class education on human nature and behavior. This, he believes, is the foundation of his writing.

After graduating from a multi-cultural high school, he took up permanent residence in the United States to study Religion and Philosophy. After earning his Bachelor’s Degree, Dekker entered the corporate world in management for a large healthcare company in California. Dekker was quickly recognized as a talent in the field of marketing and was soon promoted to Director of Marketing. This experience gave him a background which enabled him to eventually form his own company and steadily climb the corporate ladder.

Since 1997, Dekker has written full-time. He states that each time he writes, he finds his understanding of life and love just a little clearer and his expression of that understanding a little more vivid. To see a complete list of Dekker’s work, visit The Works section of TedDekker.com.

Here are some of his latest titles:

Chosen (The Lost Books, Book 1) (The Books of History Chronicles)

Adam

Black: The Birth of Evil (The Circle Trilogy Graphic Novels, Book 1)

  1. Hi Rhonda. I went to university with Ted (didn’t know him well, though), so I always enjoy seeing what he’s up to. Thanks for posting this. 🙂
