Welcome to Paradise.

Epic battles of good and evil are happening all around us.

Today that battle comes to town with the sound of lone footsteps clacking down the blacktop on a hot, lazy summer afternoon. The black-cloaked man arrives in the sleepy town of Paradise and manages to become the talk of the town within the hour. Bearing the power to grant any unfulfilled dream, he is irresistible.

Seems like bliss . . . but is it?
Or is hell about to break loose in Paradise?

This is the best Ted Dekker book I've read yet. Honestly, most of his books I sit there, and I have no clue whatsoever what is going on and whether it's symbolic or not. This one, though, was both. Not only was it a story of evil coming into Paradise and destroying it so that a father has to send his son to redeem the town, but these things were ACTUALLY and not figuratively happening! Very well done. I would recommend this to adults and teenagers.

was looking for western, not sci-fi. One has to really stretch the definition of western to make this fit.

Dekker's Showdown is part of a trilogy that later on becomes the launching platform for other trilogies, prequels, etc. Good writing, great combination of action, fiction, and Christian-based beliefs and values. Entertaining read

I loved it. Couldn't put it down. Can't wait to read the other 2 novels. However, I am a person that loves a good thriller that has a fantasy element to it and I'll always enjoy epic battles of good versus evil. It is pretty graphic however, I wouldn't recommend it for the squeamish.
