    Ted Dekker has some interesting ideas about tolerance. He sheds light on a particularly disturbing aspect of American culture and politics; namely that we should be tolerant of all peoples, regardless of their color, nationality, gender, age, or personal beliefs except Christians because Christianity is an exclusive belief system intolerant of any other system which rejects or defies it. Why is this so disturbing. Let me explain: In America, we say that we have to be tolerant of Muslims because [...]

    I went into this read with exceptionally high expectations since both Showdown and Saint were extraordinary reads. I love the Good VS. Evil Concept that this series was based around. With Sinner I did not feel that adrenalin and overall excitement that I feel with just about every book I read of Dekker's. It started good and then quickly lost that special Dekker touch. It went from Good VS. Evil to religion VS. religion, and belief against belief. This is one thing I dislike so much about our so [...]

    I will leave the plot for others to rehash. Instead, I would rather comment on the journey Dekker seems to be making. As I have noted in other reviews, The Circle Trilogy was the height of Dekker: fresh, innovative, multi-layered, and spiritually profound. The Books of History novels have headed downhill from there. Showdown was still very good, Saint okay, and Skin barely passable. Sinner offers me hope but still doesn't rise back to the level of Black, Red, White.Some will not like Sinner beca [...]

    Sinner by Ted Dekker is a peek into a future where “tolerance” has become the new religion. Our children are fed a constant diet of the necessity for “tolerance” in school every day. While we become tolerant of cultures and religious beliefs outside our own, we find that the beliefs that are still in the majority are becoming less tolerated. I’ve often felt that as a society, we need to stop focusing on and celebrating the differences between all of us. Instead I’ve thought that if w [...]

    For those of you who didn't know, 'Sinner' is the third book in the 'Paradise' trilogy written by Ted Dekker. The trilogy involves the 'Books of History' which the Circle trilogy was all about ('Green' is coming out this year will that mean it will be the Circle quadrilogy?). I love the way Dekker's books all seem to be linked to each other even 'House' is linked to Paradise. But I digress.Sinner is written as two books (Book 1 and Book 2 interestingly enough) and tells the story of three aldult [...]

    the first book i’ve ever read from the pen of Ted Dekker… i know that seems amazing, but i’d just never gotten around to digging into any of his books and then, the notion of this 10-book series really seemed a bit too much of a commitment for me to settle down with, especially since i wasn’t certain that it would work out…Now, having read Sinner, i want to dive into the rest of the series… unfortunately i only have one of the other books in my possession (Showdown) and there’s alw [...]

    I'm kind of surprised that the book is intended to be read in circle and there was no 1st in any turn so this book is the first for me despite it being said as the third book of the series. Although I think the initial religion approach in near future society is interesting, but half of it was a bit ludicrous especially with the bit about Johnny and his near utopia influence on the people. Darcy is likable in the beginning but she began to be corrupted with the power she held in persuading peopl [...]

    This is the third book of Ted Dekker's that I've read and to be honest I was a bit disappointed. Although I was somewhat familiar with most of the characters from reading the previous two books, they were a bit flat for me in this one. It was an OK read and I didn't put it down for three months before finishing, but I found it to be the least engaging of the Paradise series. Dekker is an excellent author and I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books, but this one was lacking in character developm [...]

    I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. Ted Dekker's view of a world taken over by a crooked government bent on political correctness under the guise of "tolerance" is spot on. I started this book not realizing it was part of a series and although it references previous ones it didn't leave you completely clueless as to what had happened before. All in all a very interesting read.

    Dekker is one of my favorite author's, if not my favorite. This was a great project but with every new book from Dekker, I yearn for the depth and insight of his first few novels. Still a great read.

    A weird, crazy ending to a twisted dark series that never gripped me from the start. I'm not saying I didn't like it because a three star rating says I did. However, overall I found it slightly depressing because it was SO dark.

    Actual Review: ???I really don't know how to review this book. Having read the previous two books in this trilogy, I knew going into this novel that Ted Dekker writes a slow-burning plot - he likes to introduce you to all these things that seemingly don't connect or relate in any form or fashion, and in the last 100 pages or so reveals exactly how everything does just that. This worked really well in Showdown and relatively well in Saint. In this book, however, parts of it were just plain boring [...]

    Liked this one much better than the last one I read of Dekker's. The book, like many of Dekker's is a thriller and a quick read.

    I have said it a number of times, Ted DeKker is one of my favorite novelists of all time. His writing style is unique, his storylines are gripping and his agenda is usually subtle. I can honestly say I have never read a book from Mr. DeKker that I did not enjoy… until now. His latest novel and third book in his Paradise series called Sinner is the one book I reluctantly admit is not a very good book. In all honesty I hate having to write a negative review for one of my all time favorite author [...]

    Sinner: Ted Dekker, August 15—25, 2014 My rating: ♦♦♦◊◊SinnerSinner is the third part of the Paradise Trilogy which itself forms part of the Chronicles of History. The trilogy centres around orphan Billy's decision to write in one of the blank books only for his evil creation, Marsuvees Black, to come to life.Sinner is very much a sequel and a stand-alone at the same. There are sufficient references to Showdown and Saint, but the plot is removed enough from the preceding instalments [...]

    Although the prologue is similar to the second book in the series, this book puts all the pieces back together since the first read in the series. After thirteen years, religious sect who started the project showdown, Roman Catholic, do not want their failure to leak out with the thirty six kids. However, all the other thirty four were found and dead. Now Billy and Darcy were saved by Brian Kincaid after Agent Smith found Darcy in her apartment tied up. My suspicion has to do something with this [...]

    Even though I thouroughly appreciated the themes addressed in this novel, I was left wanting more. And not in a good way. I'm a huge fan of Dekker and his books are always packed with adrenaline provoking plots and symbolism that opens your eyes to how creative of a writer he is. In that aspect, this one was lacking and just left me feeling unsatisfied. Considering how amazing Showdown and Saint were, there was just something missing in this one and I can't put my finger on it. I enjoy this seri [...]

    A pretty decent end to the Paradise trilogyThe orphans from Project Showdown are being hunted and killed. Billy and Darcy are the only ones left as they come into powers of their own. Johnny wasn't an orphan (so he doesn't count), but he's still wreaking havoc in the name of good and truth.In the future, people have religion, color, racebut it's not usually spoken of publicly. You keep your religion and some opinions to yourself in the name of "tolerance." There is much less focus on race and co [...]

    I had a big problem with this book. It was way to predictable for Dekker. I saw one particular thing coming from a mile away. Actually from a book away. I knew in the last book that a certain someone was evil and it was confirmed in this book. I like to be surprised by Dekker which is why I loved "The Sanctuary" so much. Maybe I'm just getting used to his twists? I'm not sure. Either way the plot lacked the surprise and suspense I've seen in so many of his other novels. What I really liked about [...]

    I'll start with the good and get to the bad. Dekker's points on religious tolerance are good. and those of us who've read Showdown are glad to see Billy, Darsey, and Johnny again. And it is good to see Marsuvees Black finally vanquished. But the book leaves me wanting. It doesn't have the signature Ted Dekker thriller/cat-and-mouse elements and I miss them. He makes his point on religious tolerance in the first fifty pages and doesn't back it up further. The metaphors are weak along with the plo [...]

    This is a weird mix of dark fantasy /futuristic religious sf. The background is that there are these books and if children write in them what they write comes true in a way. Many years ago a boy named Billy used this book to create an embodiment of evil, and 2 other children also became involved. Now it is many years later, and a wave of hate crimes sparks another confrontation between good and evil. The book reminds me of a combination of Stephen King and Frank Peretti. My issues with this book [...]

    What a great story to end the series!!!Sinner was definitely the best of this series. "Showdown" was like a Stephen King novel, "Saint" was more akin to Joseph Finder or Lee Child. But "Sinner" was a book all its own. Full of mystery action and suspense, with a supernatural core and most assuredly evangelical, this one brings all the stories together to its final climax!We are reaquainted with three of the original children who were part of the "Showdown" experiment in the craggy canyons of west [...]

    I just just just finished reading this book. (Thank you, real-life, for getting in the way of my reading time, lol) This was AMAZING, a great endingor beginning, really, for the Paradise books. A very good look at how darkness can eat away at a person and how it can be removed by turning toward the Light! It presents a very scary reality, one that could be, where tolerance is the word of the day, thereby making ones beliefs illegal and anyone saying Jesus is the only way accused of a hate crime. [...]

    The good: supernatural powers, literary symbolism, philosophical observations and comments, and general adventureness. The not so good: heel-face-turn of major character who I think was in a previous book in the series, oddly enough. And seriously I'm done with the idea that tolerance for other religions/ideas is going to bring down America and bring the end of the world all at once. I will give this book credit that it does admit that only in this special situation with the supernatural powers [...]

    It has been predicted that Christians will one day be hated even in the land of the free. Now that day has arrived with the help of Marsuvees Black.When a string of racially motivated lynchings threatens to tear the country apart, two stunningly gifted orators, Darcy Lange and Billy Rediger, sweep into Washington and demand that the constitution be modified to allow for a law that will end the widespread violence. Racial and religious speech that undermines others' beliefs must be classified as [...]

    Probably 2.5 stars overall, but my feelings for the book ranged from a high 1.5 to a high 4.5 at different parts of the story. This was the preachiest book of the series, and even being a Christian I felt like it was too heavy-handed (not exactly what I thought I was getting into in this book). The plot is engaging and I certainly was interested in how things would resolve for Johnny and co. The premise that too much tolerance could be a bad thing (and particularly the way that Dekker illustrate [...]
