"Whoever said a straightened hand was more dramatic than a healed heart, anyway?"
A young orphaned boy was abandoned and raised in an Ethiopian monastery. He has never seen outside its walls - at least, not the way most people see. Now he must flee or die.
But the world beyond is hardly ready for a boy like Caleb. When relief expert Jason Marker agrees to rescue Caleb from the monastery, he unwittingly opens humanity’s doors to an incredible journey filled with political intrigue and peril. Jason and Leiah - the French-Canadian nurse who escapes the monastery with him - quickly realize Caleb’s supernatural power to heal. But so do the boy’s enemies, who will stop at nothing to destroy him. Jason and Leiah fight for Caleb’s survival while the world erupts in debate over the source of the boy’s power.
In the end nothing can prepare them for what they discover.

You know a man writes by the Spirit when after reading his books you want to spend time with the Spirit. Dekker is always pointing to Jesus...His life, His love. A real blessing this book.
So blessed and challenged in my walk with Christ
Caleb. His passion for the Saviour
Any time the power of God and His love were revealed.
I enjoyed the book all the way through. This is the first time I have read Ted Dekker and I listened to both of the Caleb books, and liked them both.
This is my new favorite Ted Dekker book. I have read many of his novels and have enjoyed all of them, however, this one is particularly good. Through the compelling characters, it reveals some of the mystery of the working of the Holy Spirit and the power of the Church. I feel moved and empowered after reading this story. Don't miss it!
The character development was excellent.
Yes, It leaves you longing for the next book. Simple truths wrapped in anything but simple story.
Great twists and turns engages the impels the listener to seek the resolution.
The truths stay with you long after the story ends
