about

The Four Gifts of the King is a story of salvation and hope told through an adventure that stirs the imagination and speaks to the soul. When Sam Roberts learns he is dying, he is faced with a decision that will determine his legacy and alter forever the destinies of his four adult children. With his lifelong friend Walter at his side, Sam writes his last words to his children. His legacy would come not through money or power, but through a parable. Sam takes his children and readers alike on the breathtaking adventure of Steward of Aiden Glenn and his quest to find the King and learn the purpose for his life. The Four Gifts of the King is a saga of truth and deception, of trust and love, of courage and victory, and of faith. At its heart is the importance of family and coming home to the values that shape adults from children. It calls readers to consider their own legacy. It's a parable that changed the lives of Sam's children forever, as it changes the lives of all who read it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring I really liked this book. It had some very inspiring things written in it, that made me look a bit differently at the teachings of Jesus for myself, mainly the things about fear. The only thing I was a bit disappointed in was that there wasn't a whole lot of Jesus in this novel as I had expected. It was still an amazing story and some awesome quotes that i wrote down that really spoke to me. The book is very action packed, and not at all dull.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another powerful novel I was so captivated by Ted Dekker's prior book, A.D. 30, that I was worried that perhaps I wouldn't be able to enjoy his follow up, A.D.33, to quite the same extent. But I was certainly worried for nothing, as Dekker's latest read is every bit as good! Once again, from the first page I was swept up into Maviah's world among the Bedouin people, written was such realism that I could practically taste the grit of the sand between my teeth. My emotions followed hers as she was swept from peace to despair, from uncertainty to desperate hope that Jesus would rescue her in the way she thought she needed. I really enjoyed encountering Jesus through these non-Jewish characters, especially ones from such a mysterious land as Maviah and her people hail from. Dekker perfectly captures the despair that Jesus' followers felt as he was nailed to a cross and all seemed lost, with powerful writing that evokes deep emotion. Readers will experience the same hopelessness the characters feel, making the triumphant moments to come all the sweeter. A.D. 33 is one wild ride after another, filled with drama and tension to the point that I simply couldn't put the book down. The characters are unique and larger than life, and the way they encounter Jesus had me longing to travel back in time so that I could witness what they do first hand. But easily my favourite part of the story is the last few chapters, written with such beauty that by the time I finished the last page I truly felt I'd entered into a spiritual moment while reading the book. Now how often can you say that about fiction? Ted Dekker continues to astonish me with stories that he crafts, ones that not only capture my mind, but take hold of my heart as well. 5 out of 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly my favourite Ted Dekker book yet A.D. 30 is an unbelievable tale, one that transported me back to the days of Jesus and swept me up, wholly and completely, into the world of Maviah. The language is poetic, and the drama is nothing short of epic. Ted Dekker has given a completely new twist to the genre of "Biblical fiction", and I'm pretty sure that I fell in love with Jesus all over again as I watched him interact with the characters of this story. I have found that quite often fictional books about Jesus feature characters who are part of his inner circle, but Dekker offers up something different here, with a character who is not even Jewish, but hails from the desert sands of Arabia. Maviah is absolutely fascinating, a character portrayed with utter realism, as she struggles to find the strength and the courage to survive after facing a horrible loss. Her journey towards Jesus is a beautiful one to behold, as she learns that he loves her deeply, though she believes herself to be the lowest of the low. Though she is not Jewish and has no reason to trust him, she is captivated by the love in his eyes and the beauty of his smile. I loved the scenes where Maviah has a total showdown with evil, and... well, I dare not say more as I don't want to give any part of the story away|! I really enjoyed all the different characters, from Maviah to her two sidekicks, Saba and Judah, and even found the villains of the story to be etched upon the page with a sense of realness. Dekker has succeeded at bringing history to life, and I hated to see the story end. Dekker has succeeded at writing a novel that is truly beautifully written. I can honestly say that this is my favourite Ted Dekker book to date. I am greatly looking forward to the next book in the series, A.D.33! 5 out of 5 stars.
