Ted Dekker's Bio:
The son of missionaries John and Helen Dekker, whose incredible story of life among headhunters in Indonesia has been told in several books, Ted Dekker learned at a very early age the difference between authentic Christianity and so-called religion. Surrounded by the vivid colors of the jungle and a myriad of cultures, each steeped in their own interpretation of life and religion, Dekker received a first-class education on human nature and behavior. This, he believes, is the foundation of his writing.

After graduating from a multicultural high school, he took up permanent residence in the United States to study Religion and Philosophy. After earning his Bachelorís Degree from Evangel College in Springfield, Missouri, Dekker entered the corporate world as a store manager for a large healthcare company in California. Dekker was quickly recognized as a talent in the field of marketing and was soon promoted to Director of Marketing. This experience gave him a background which enabled him to eventually form his own company and steadily climb the corporate ladder.

Since 1997, Dekker has written full-time. He states that each time he writes, he finds his vision of God just a little clearer and his expression of that vision a little more vivid. Dekker's body of work includes Heaven's Wager, When Heaven Weeps, Thunder of Heaven, Blessed Child, A Man Called Blessed, Blink, Thr3e, The Circle Trilogy (Black, Red, White), and Obsessed.

Ted Dekker lives in the mountains of Colorado on a small ranch with his wife LeeAnn and their four children.
