Book Review: Immanuel’s Veins

Bruce MillerBook Reviews/Notes

Immanuel’s Veins, Ted Dekker

Very strong fantasy novel set in 1700s. Dekker leaves you thinking. He does an amazing job of helping you see and feel the destructive power of evil as a corruption of good. What looks like love and beauty is ugly and hate-filled. What looks tasty and delicious upsets your stomach in the end. The terrible evil of love gone wrong, base pleasures. Wicked evil does not always look dangerous at first and the cure flows from Immanuel’s veins. Blood is crucial to life.
