Publisher's Summary

One man holds the key to locating the Ark of the Covenant - but he’s hidden deep in the desert and no one has seen him since he was a boy. In this explosive sequel to Blessed Child, Jewish soldier-turned-archaeologist Rebecca Soloman leads a team deep into the Ethiopian desert to find the one man who may know the final resting place of the Ark of the Covenant. Such a discovery would bring hope back to her people. Her search brings excitement and danger - including unexpected love and a discovery far more powerful than even the holy artifact. Meanwhile, Islamic fundamentalists dispatch Ismael, their most accomplished assassin, to pursue Rebecca and the man she’s searching for. These men fear that the Ark’s discovery will compel Israel to rebuild Solomon’s temple - on the very site of their holy mosque in Jerusalem. But the man they seek is no ordinary man. His name is Caleb, and he too is on a mission - to find again the love he embraced as a child and to share that love with the world.

A Man Called Blessed

This book was beyond the normal realm of life, amazing, and true to the character of God. It is Christian fiction (that is a novel with fictional characters), at it's best. I don't think we as Christians have touched the possibilities that God offers in this life probably because we are too afraid of going off the deep end into some kind of circus performing stance. As for me I have to remember that God is in control, He is no respector of persons, and He is unlimited and all powerful. I enjoyed every page of this book!

Unleashing of God's Mighty Power and Freedom

This is the second of the Caleb books, and Caleb is 25 years old now in the deserts of Ethiopia. He and his parents have rebuilt the monastery where he grew up as a child. They live there together and minister to a leper colony, and even though Caleb still believes, he has lost his zeal and fire for Christ. This book, though fictional, explores the need for childlike faith, for trusting when we can't see the road ahead, for joyous dancing and spending time in the presence of God, all the things that we veer away from after the newness of our salvation starts to wear off. I would say that I'm not sure that the turn of events in the book are totally biblically correct as they pertain to end time prophecy, however, there are many trains of thought regarding that. And a fictional book is just that, fiction. The book blessed me and brought about self examination about my walk with the Savior.

I love Caleb's relationship with God!

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Man Called Blessed?

I love when Caleb sits all night under the stars just looking into his Father's eyes.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Beware that the narrator uses the same "little boy" voice for Caleb that he used in the first book, and this severely detracts from the dignity and depth of Caleb the man.

Who was the most memorable character of A Man Called Blessed and why?

Of course, Caleb, because he has the relationship with God that we all desire deep in our hearts. He's kind of forgotten about God, and we see him awaken and remember, and in the process we're drawn into the beauty of worship.

Love This Book, Love The Author!

What did you love best about A Man Called Blessed?

Not only was it suspenseful and a great story, I learned a lot of history regarding the stuggle over the Temple Mount.

What did you like best about this story?

History I learned.

What does Benjamin L. Darcie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Not a lot. Although he did an ok job narrating, the story carried itself.

If you could take any character from A Man Called Blessed out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I would of course like to meet Caleb to find out more about his relationship with God and what its like being so used of God.

Any additional comments?

Ted Dekkar is a master story teller and this is one of his best!!

Realistic

What made the experience of listening to A Man Called Blessed the most enjoyable?

It was realistic. Caleb was normal and had doubts about God's power like we do at times. But he found his faith again which is always available for us.

Which character – as performed by Benjamin L. Darcie – was your favorite?

Caleb.

Who was the most memorable character of A Man Called Blessed and why?

Abraham. He was a man who had hatred and evil in his heart.

Any additional comments?

You will not regret the read.

A Great Sequel to Blessed Child

Another one of Ted Dekker's brilliant writings!! Although fictional, the research that he put into the story made it very believable. I was sorry it had to end.
