Ted Dekker

The official website of New York Times bestselling author Ted Dekker. Discover award-winning Christian fiction and non-fiction for the whole family, from supernatural suspense and young adult novels to early reader books for ages 7 and up, to teen adventure books, to adult devotionals.

Ted Dekker was born to missionaries who lived and ministered among the headhunter tribes of Indonesia. From the very beginning, his unique upbringing shaped his vivid imagination and perspective of the world, but it wasn’t until his thirties that he began to write.

Now he is a multiple award-winning, New York Times and international bestselling author of over 50 books, including suspense/thrillers, young adult novels, young reader book series (for ages 7 and up), and Christian devotionals. 

His work has reached tens of millions worldwide and has been translated into numerous languages, including adaptation into major feature films. He is considered one of the top Christian Fiction authors of this generation and, in 2013, NPR readers nationwide voted Ted as one of the top suspense writers of all time.

Ted's passion has remained the same since the beginning: to take readers on unforgettable rides through story using modern day parables that challenge them to see the world in a new way. A way that calls them into the light of freedom and transformation.
