Ted Dekker: Not Your Typical Christian Writer

I've never read any books by Christian novelist Ted Dekker, yet, but I'm intrigued by what I've seen, and I'm hoping to check one or more of his books out of the library here, because he appears to be a writer who transcends the limitations of the stereotypical "Christian novel" in order to write pulse-quickening novels which would appeal even to unbelievers.

Here's a link to an interesting article about Ted from CNN. Maybe the fact that he isn't the typical Christian writer is due to his unusual upbringing, having been raised by missionaries in an area where cannibalism was still practiced.
