Publisher's Summary

The first novel from New York Times best-selling author Ted Dekker.

"[Heaven's Wager is] genuinely exciting...fast paced...spine-tingling." (Publishers Weekly)

It was an absolutely perfect day...until everything went absolutely perfectly wrong.

Kent Anthony is a brilliant software engineer who is cashing in on a brilliant career. He's finally living the idyllic life, far from thoughts of theft and murder and other kinds of horrible criminal behavior.

He's left his past far behind...or so he thinks.

Ted Dekker delivers a fascinating story of the almost perfect crime, interwoven with a tale of bittersweet love that is almost enough to save a soul. A story that will bring you face-to-face with a hidden world more real than most people ever realize; a world where the unseen is more powerful than anything seen.

"Well, well, guess what I've found. A fiction writer with a rare knack for a compelling story, an expansive reservoir of clever ideas, and a unique dry wit that makes me laugh." (Frank Peretti, New York Times best-selling author)

"Rarely does a novel grip a reader's heart and soul the way Heaven's Wager does. Dekker is among a very small number of writers who have mastered the challenge of blending sound theology with knock-your-socks-off storytelling." (Robert Liparulo, novelist and contributing editor of New Man magazine)

Great Read

Many twists and turns. Ted Dekker is great at writing books. So much so that a person can get lost inside a book and want to keep going until the last page is turned. The only regret is that it is the end of the book. So you turn to another one of his writings, open the book and begin another journey.

excellent!

knowing how Ted writes, i couldn't listen before bedtime, 😂 but couldn't stop until i finished, during the day. as usual he weaves a fine tale of the darkness and the Light. i found The Martyrs Song by Todd Agnew, on YouTube and am playing it now. beautiful song. you may want to do that after you hear it mentioned the first time in this book.

I've started the book over again just so i can understand better, the beginning, which seems so different now that I've heard the whole story. i cant wait to hear the remaining books in the series.

well done Ted!

Not the best work from Ted.

Story was quite cheesy at times. Good message in the story, but could have been delivered better.

Wish I hadn't waisted my credit on this.

Struggled to get through it. Story seemed to drag on. I did like the story premiss when I FINALLY got to the end. Not inclined to get any more of Ted Dekker"s books.
