Review of "A Man Called Blessed" by Ted Dekker and Bill Bright
"A Man Called Blessed" is the sequel to "Blessed Child", but it is also a stand alone book. You do not need to read "Blessed Child" first, but it will definitely help you with the background of the story.
In "A Man Called Blessed" we again meet Caleb, a grown man now instead of the orphan child he was years ago. He is back at the rebuilt monastery in Ethiopia that he knew so well while growing up. But Caleb has been struggling to connect with God. He can't seem to grasp the same child-like faith he once did long ago.
In the midst of this, turmoil is occurring all around him. Caleb meets an Israeli soldier named Rebecca who is searching for the Ark of the Covenant, and he finds himself embarking on an incredible adventure.
Just like many of the other Ted Dekker books I have read, I loved this story! The only thing I disliked about this book is that we really don't find out what happened to Caleb's adoptive parents, Jason and Leiah except for a few tidbits about them. I would have liked there to be more references to them. But it is still a great read and a book that I will definitely recommend!
I rate it as 5 stars!
