Ted Dekker’s much-anticipated newest thriller The Sanctuary releases on October 30, 2012, leaving many Dekker fans to eagerly awaiting the chance to dive into its pages. The first time I ever heard about The Sanctuary was June 2011. Ted was in the middle of writing it only to be interrupted by the book tour for The Priest’s Graveyard. He was doing a signing a couple hours away from where I live, so I popped over, stayed late, and ended the evening talking to Ted and his right-hand man, Kevin Kaiser. Ted gave me a brief synopsis—enough to make me agonize for having to wait over a year for it—and we talked about my need for a new website name. Ted suggested Book Monkey, among other things. The name didn’t stick, but the monkey did. (psst…don’t tell Ted, but Life is Story is totally a better name.)
Finally, come August 2012, advance copies had been printed and one had shown up in my mailbox. And it was worth the wait. Check out this blurb of my upcoming review:
Deeply philosophical, yet compulsively readable. Inherently theological, yet pulse-pounding in its intensity. Ted Dekker’s The Sanctuary is well worth waiting for. You’ll want to wrestle with it, savor it, consider it, second-guess it, and, as it settles into its climax, simply hang on for the ride.
So why do I mention this now? Why do I mention how absolutely stunning this book is and how you simply can’t get your hands on it until almost November? Because you totally can. Thanks to the wonderful people over at Center Street, I have three advance copies of The Sanctuary to hand out to three lucky people.
