It has been predicted that Christians will one day be hated even in the land of the free. Now that day has arrived with the help of Marsuvees Black. When a string of racially motivated lynchings threatens to tear the country apart, two stunningly gifted orators, Darcy Lange and Billy Rediger, sweep into Washington and demand that the Constitution be modified to allow for a law that will end the widespread violence. Racial and religious speech that undermines others’ beliefs must be classified as hate speech and must be severely punished. But out of the desert comes one man, Johnny Drake, who refuses to deny his faith in Christ through silence. Now the whole world watches as Christianity faces a showdown not seen since the times of the early church. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Adam Verner’s powerful characterization of evil Marsuvees Black is chilling. Verner makes believable Black’s efforts to eliminate religious freedom in the United States. When Billy and Darcy’s unexplained supernatural powers manifest, Verner captures their anxiety and fear with an understated portrayal, and then credibly depicts their inexplicable change in attitude. Verner’s energetic performance of the final stand against evil at Paradise amid three thousand people is also gripping.”

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 1/19/2014

    " Wasn't my favorite of the Paradise novels. Slow beginning but picks up pace near the end "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 1/11/2014

    " continues the stories and some of the characters begun in the circle trilogy (Black, Red, White)not as strong as those but entertaining and a little preachy "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathy | 1/7/2014

    " I really liked this book althought it took me longer to read than most books do....very good, as always with Ted Dekker. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Siobhan Parker | 12/29/2013

    " I've given Ted Dekker plenty of high praise in my previous reviews, so let me just cut to the chase: Sinner is not his best fantasy/allegory work, but it is still great. It might be hard to understand if you haven't read Showdown, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah A | 12/14/2013

    " The last book in the Paradise Books. I didn't like it as much as Saint, but the message was amazing none the less. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam Lonberg | 12/9/2013

    " Very cool ending to the series. Some very relevant themes regarding free speech and freedom of religion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish Cooper | 12/2/2013

    " As a Dekker fan, it is hard for me to give one of his books only 3 stars. This was not one of my favorites. I felt like there was " too much" in this one and made you kind of wish it would all just end and we could be done with Black, Johnny, Darcy, and Billy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Esther | 11/27/2013

    " Hmm. I really dont know what to think about this one..This book as well as Adam seem to be moving away from the core of what Dekker has written about in the past. Or maybe it is just lacking depth compared to some of the previous books I have read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kat | 9/28/2013

    " Great read - I'm starting The Circle Trilogy today which are the prequel books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Panzershreik | 5/24/2013

    " good book, got a little bit strange at the end, but it was still a good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa | 3/23/2013

    " A literal and awe-inspiring way of experiencing the beauty of Christ and forgiveness and the horrors of Satan. You will never be able to look at God or your faith in the same way after reading this amazing finale of the Paradise Novels! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Swing | 12/9/2012

    " Fantastic, as always, Dekker weaves this beautifully! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gordon Kuntz | 10/18/2012

    " A good read and possibly a foretelling of the future. "

    " This book changed my life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya | 6/8/2012

    " As always, Ted Dekker does an amazing job with suspence & thrill & tying another series together to completion. Great read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chica114 | 1/10/2012

    " A lot more religious focus than I was planning on, but a good book overall, and it made me think a lot about tolerance and how it is viewed in the world today. A thrilling plot as usual for Dekker and a few good twists which made it a quick enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin Paschal | 10/21/2011

    " I think my favorite thing about the "Books" series is that it shows that all man has the capacity to love, hurt, bring to life and kill. It's our choices and the paths we put ourselves on (and remove ourselves from) that bring us to these crucial points in our lives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robbie | 10/13/2011

    " I jumped in to this book without having read one single Ted Dekker novel. It was engaging and exciting - took just one day to read. Based on this one, I'd read more Dekker books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marsha | 8/13/2011

    " Going to put this in Brice's book bag for Christmas so I need to get it read before then! :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anne | 5/31/2011

    " Good eye candy, but not a whole lot of substance. Dekker does know how to keep you entertained, but cannot write romance to save his life. It would be interesting if he was better at developing character smoothly and seamlessly, rather than jerkily and awkwardly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin | 5/15/2011

    " If half stars were available, it would be 3 1/2, but alas it's rounded up to 4. This was the first book I read by Dekker and I must say I enjoy his writing style. I'm looking foward to getting my hands on the other series that he's written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kayley | 5/14/2011

    " I believe this was the first book I read by Ted Dekker. It's hooks ran so deep, I was exceedingly disappointed when the series ended, but it caused me to look for more by him. His books have inspired me in many ways. If I had more than two thumbs, they would be up for Ted Dekker! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Spencer | 5/12/2011

    " Very interesting. Was hard to get at first since i hadn't read the first book. Definitely a thriller and I wasn't expecting that ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jake | 5/6/2011

    " Audio Recording. It was a pretty good book. I really with they had told me about project showdown. I later learned that it was a book in a trilogy. Overall it was pretty good. The climax at the end was a little disappointing but I was entertained thr "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 5/1/2011

    " Was totally enthralled when I began this book. Then there was a section that I felt it was dragging on and on. Still like this author though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy | 4/8/2011

    " Review to follow when I finish Showdown. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 ???*. | 3/28/2011

    " It was a fairly decent book. Not the best I've read though. It's one of those books that spike your interest and then ten minutes later it's back to being slow paced. However it had some pretty "happening" parts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacob | 3/27/2011

    " Very good book from the very start...I wish i were Carl/Johnny "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Letty | 3/7/2011

    " Started out good but then was just plain silly. I forced myself to finish it otherwise I wouldn't have. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kari | 2/17/2011

    " one of the best works of fiction I have ever read... mix of Bourne trilogy and Angels and Demons !! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tricia | 2/17/2011

    " Three stars for now. I was told that this book was a stand alone even though it was part of a series. However, I'm on page 177 and finding too many refrences to Showdown to follow. I hope to be able to read Showdown, then come back to this book and finish, but for now, I'll have to wait. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 2/15/2011

    " Very cool series. Dekker often reminds of Steven King (but less prone to excess), which is a good thing. Can't wait for the finale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Calvin | 2/10/2011

    " This book was awesome very action-packed.I also loved the plot throughout the entire book! "
