Publisher's summary

Full of mystery, intrigue, and mind-blowing twists, Sinner explores what happens when the idea of tolerance leads to intolerance.

Some say roll with the punches. Drift with the tide. Nothing can stop the inevitability of change. There was a time when 300 Spartans disagreed with such mindless thinking and stood in the gap.

Now it's time for 3,000 to stand in the gap.

Sinner is the story of Marsuvees Black, a force of raw evil who speaks with wicked persuasion that is far more destructive than swords or guns. Beware all who stand in his way.

It's also the story of Billy Rediger and Darcy Lange, two unsuspecting survivors of a research project gone bad, who discover that they are perhaps the two most powerful souls in the land. Listen to them or pay a terrible price.

And it's the story of Johnny Drake, the one who comes out of the desert and leads the 3,000. Follow him and die.

Sinner tells the story of a free land where people who worship as they please and say what they believe are suddenly silenced in the name of tolerance.

Most will roll with the punches.

Most will drift with the tide. But not all. Not the 3,000. 

Full-length suspense with a thread of fantasy

How very poignant for our time. The question I have asked myself is, am I bearing witness to the light.
Thank you Mr Dekker

Ask yourself - is this real?

Great use of current events intermingled with the fictional parts. Left me reminding myself that it is only a fictional story- for now anyway

Excellent book!!

I love Ted Dekker’s style of writing and I believe that he is doing God’s work ferociously. The pen is truly mightier than the sword.

Good, But Better PHysically

I like the book well enough, even if I think the parallels drawn with it to today's society are quite the stretch. But I really would've appreciated some narration help for Adam. His Billy and Johnny were very good but every female character sounds almost cartoonish, making it hard to take the moments they were in the spotlight seriously.

Gripping reality

Loved it. A little slow at first a it the story comes together beautifully. The twist in the plot will get you.
narration was done beautifully keeping the story alive.
The circle series was a little confusing. The paradise series put everything into perspective.
We have to be very careful of our choices.
