Infidel by Ted Dekker Graphic Novel

It's the 21st, time for the Teen FIRST blog tour! Every 21st, we will feature an author and his/her latest Teen fiction book's FIRST chapter.

This week we're featuring Ted Dekker and his book:

Infidel--Graphic Novel: The Lost Books Series

This was a fun, suspenseful graphic novel to read, and I finished it within an hour or two. You don't have to have read Chosen to enjoy this one since back story is sprinkled in throughout, but for ultimate enjoyment you'll want to pick it up.

I had the chance to interview Ted and talk to him a couple months ago about these graphic novels. Read that interview here.


Ted is the son of missionaries John and Helen Dekker, whose incredible story of life among headhunters in Indonesia has been told in several books. Surrounded by the vivid colors of the jungle and a myriad of cultures, each steeped in their own interpretation of life and faith, Dekker received a first-class education on human nature and behavior. This, he believes, is the foundation of his writing.

After graduating from a multi-cultural high school, he took up permanent residence in the United States to study Religion and Philosophy. After earning his Bachelor's Degree, Dekker entered the corporate world in management 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 understanding of life and love just a little clearer and his expression of that understanding a little more vivid. To see a complete list of Dekker's work, visit The Works section of

Cool... my husband just got into graphic novels, as the jr. high kids he teaches reads them. We've been enjoying the Bone books, but I'll have to tell him that Ted Dekker has a series out too.
