Publisher's Summary

One orphaned boy. A desperate race to keep him alive. And powers that are beyond comprehension.

“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.

I loved this book!

I loved this book! Nothing was predictable. I really enjoyed the scenarios of Caleb teaching how to walk in the Kingdom. It was totally sublimed. I got the next book. I am looking forward to 'A man named blessed'. Thank you for writing this. I know it was Holy Ghost inspired!

The Holy Spirit, the connector thru Faith to Heav

Wow, someone finally writes about the reality of The Holy Spirit and the Kingdom of God. The Holy Spirit Himself as the connector between the two KINGDOMS and their KINGS, all through Desire and Faith. Thank you Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

YES! YES!! YES!!!

This book touched my heart in realization that His perfect love is shown through little children all throughout the world every single day. We adults forget the simple trust, love & joy that we had a children. Let God renew you. Amazing book.

nail biter

the story starts off in a war zone, so you are fed the information as it is happening. it is very well read!
Jason picks up this kid and red cross nurse and runs. he doesn't know from who or why they are chasing them. They soon realize the significance of the boy, but it a little too late. church and politics inter twine.... they have to save the special boy... but from whom?

Very good book

This book has a great story line, with suspense. I especially loved the authors imagination of the Kingdom! It’s really great to read how he imagined it will be. And even with this lovely description we know that ‘no man has seen or imagined how awesome it will be’. Thank you for stretching my imagination in a great way!
