Overview
It has been predicted that Christians will one day be hated even in the land of the free. Now that day has arrived with the help of Marsuvees Black. When a string of racially motivated lynchings threatens to tear the country apart, two stunningly gifted orators, Darcy Lange and Billy Rediger, sweep into Washington and demand that the Constitution be modified to allow for a law that will end the widespread violence. Racial and religious speech that undermines others' beliefs must be classified as hate speech and must be severely punished. But out of the desert comes one man, Johnny Drake, who refuses to deny his faith in Christ through silence. Now the whole world watches as Christianity faces a showdown not seen since the times of the early church.

More About Ted Dekker

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". Es reconocido por novelas que combinan historias llenas de adrenalina con increibles confrontaciones entre el bien y el mal. Vive en Texas con su esposa y sus hijos.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Ted Dekker has written a fabulous supernatural thriller   Oct 17, 2008
In 2034 in most of the world, tolerance is the byword in regard to religion. It is frowned up to discuss sectarianism, ethno slurs, or public preaching. Billy Rediger, the product of the failed Project Showdown, is a lawyer who has never forgotten that what he wrote in The Books of History is made flesh in the real world.

Marsuvees Black is the personification of evil still out in the world causing trouble. He is behind the lynching and race riots that are polarizing America. Billy connects with Darcy Lange who also let evil into her life when she abetted Billy in writing that infamous tome. They discover Billy can hear the thoughts of everyone as long as he looks into their eyes and her voice can compel people to do what she asks. When a cabal of Washington powerbrokers brings them out from the cold, they agree to make the undecided power brokers pass a constitutional amendment that would make racial bigotry and religious freedom crimes. The amendment passes but in Paradise, Colorado Johnny Drake who fought against evil and won refuses to deny his religious beliefs.

Ted Dekker has written a fabulous supernatural thriller that brings to a close his terrific Paradise trilogy (see SHOWDOWN and SAINT). There is a lot of symbolism in this saga. Black can be considered Lucifer and Johnny is John the Baptist risking his life for his belief. There is plenty of action as the future United States is a place of no freedom as the Bill of Rights has been burned at the stakes. Readers will enjoy SINNER as it is a crime to openly worship God.

Sinner is a Teaser!   Oct 13, 2008
Once again Dekker's work is hyped up to his maximum potential. We all know what he is capable of. Those of us who have read his best, know that when at his best, Dekker can't be matched! Not in a million years. Before you even get to the title part, Dekker has a "Dear Friends" page. And Ted Dekker dares us to possibly compare this by giving us "Old and new all at once." In other words, while this is totally "Circle," you may find it ringing a familiar tune with "Heaven's Wager" or "Blessed Child" coming to mind. Well, not in my mind. And this really isn't what I consider Dekker's best either! I consider this to be Dekker's tease. And ladies and gentlemen, I HATE BEING TEASED!! But I'm also a committen fan of Ted Dekker, and he isn't yet so bad that he's out of his element.

Ted Dekker did his best bringing us Darcy, Billy and Johnny. I believe that. Darcy and Billy are determined to get people to listen to what they have to say. And they have ways of making you listen. And you also have Johnny, simply a natural leader, who's been there, done that, and isn't fazed so easily, not even by something that reaks of Black! Oh yeah, you have Marsuvees Black, and he's as evil as his name. Plans are the name of this game, and something will go through. Leaders will be followed, and there will be a price to pay.

And it sounds pretty exciting, doesn't it? The problem is that Dekker doesn't make it exciting. This was pretty easy for me to put down, and when I read Ted Dekker, that's a first! I've never felt the urge to just put down a Dekker book to go do something else. Reading this, there was always something else to do!

My wife and I are always in competition when a Dekker book comes in the mail. Simply put, one of us gets to read it first, while the other waits in agony for that last page to turn. With my wife, that last page never did turn, and she was disappointed. Another person told me that he finished it only in hopes that it would get better. That doesn't sound like the Dekker I've been reading all these years. But it gives me hope when I hear rumors like that start to form. It means that hopefully we've still got the best of Ted Dekker to come about in the future!! Hey, I know, because I've read his best. And I can't WAIT for those to get on my bookshelf.

But as for the usual, when fans might say, "The latest is the greatest!!" Nope. I'm not saying that this time. I'm saying that SINNER is a TEASER, and I can't stand to be teased!! Don't do it again, Ted. I'm waiting for more of your best. The best of the best!!
 
Another Ted Dekker masterpiece  Oct 13, 2008
I can, unfortunately, be rather critical of authors who try to capitalize on a successful book by righting sequels, prequels, etc. In this case, however, I am not disappointed. I read this one straight through last night, couldn't put it down (yawning today). I have four more of his books waiting on my nightstand waiting to be read (I have read nineteen of his novels so far). The entire time I'm reading one of his books, I look longingly at the ones waiting there, knowing there is more treasure inside.

GOD BLESS YOU, TED DEKKER for providing clean fiction with a message.
 
Another disappointment from Ted Dekker  Oct 11, 2008
I think I've just read my last Ted Dekker novel for a while.

I got interested in Dekker's stuff after reading House, his co-written effort with Peretti. I became an immediate fan and got a lot of enjoyment out of the Circle Trilogy, Obsessed, Blink, Thr3e and Showdown. Since reading Skin and Saint I started becoming disappointed with Dekker's stuff. It seemed like his stories would start really well then ultimately end poorly. Sinner is another example of this except that the first chapter or two is of the only interest and the rest goes downhill from there.

Contrary to what is written in the introduction to this book, there really is no point reading Sinner unless you have read Showdown and Saint in that order. But even if you have you will find this story dull. The course of events that take place in the storyline seem ridiculous to me. At one point we have Billy and Darcy being pursued by evil dudes to destroy them because of their supernatural powers which have suddenly manifested. The next we know, they've used those powers to help enact a federal law that effectively limits religious freedom, and Johnny thinks the best way to protest the law is to hole up in Paradise with 3000 others. Really it's all a bit implausible, even for supernatural fiction.

The storyline just doesn't flow at all, the four main characters are developed poorly, and not much really happens. Parts of the story made me wonder whether Ted Dekker actually wrote it all. Two thirds of the way through it was a real struggle for me to be bothered continuing.

My fear is that Ted Dekker has become pre-occupied with cranking out as many books as possible in the same hyper-marketing vein as the Left Behind series: endless sequels that don't finish and in which not much really happens.

For those who rate this as a 5 star book, all I can say is they mustn't read much fiction, or perhaps are only reading "Christian fiction". Even so, there's much better Christian fiction available than this.
 
Dekker has you wondering, AGAIN!  Oct 6, 2008
Great read. Dekker had me trying to remember who is from where and what their roles were before. I've read his books as they were published, Red, Black, White, House, Saint, Showdown, and the last 3 books of History ones. He's got me hooked.

This one was similar to the rest. If you're a Dekker fan, you won't want to miss reading this book.
