With this book, I believe that Ted Dekker is trying to display to the readers two important aspects. First and foremost, he displays the truth of God and His existence. There are many occasions when Dekker uses visions and miracles in his books to display God's existence, he does so in this novel as well. He also shows readers the importance of being a prayer warrior for neighbors and friends in need. Helen Jovic is an amazing example of this in Heaven's Wager. For those aspects alone, I believe that any reader, Christian or non-Christian, ought to read this book. It is an excellent example of God's love for each of His children. I give this novel a four out of five, only because Dekker does not go into as much detail as he does in some of his other novels. The ending is fantastic to this book, which is why I give it a four.

Heaven's wager is the story of a man whose life is thrown into chaos by a series of bad events. In Heaven, a 'wager' is made about the man's destiny. Will he turn to evil as Satan believes he will, or can God find a way to make something good of the man's life? By the end of the story all the spirit realm is viewing the events of this one man's life. Heaven's Wager is a brilliant book-- a true masterpiece of Christian fiction. It will go down with the works of C.S. Lewis and Frank Peretti. Frank Peretti, by the way, endorses 'Heaven's Wager' on the front and back cover. If the author of 'This Present Darkness' and the master of Christian fiction in our time, endorses the book, you know it's got to be good. I HIGHLY recommend Heaven's Wager. The suspense will nearly kill you, but you will enjoy the book!!

This book was one of my favorite reads ever. What happens in this book could happen to absolutely anyone. The characters and plot are very believable. It shows you that God works in ways that may not be expected by us.

Not one Ted ' s best works. It was kinda dry in spots and confusing in a couple areas. Yet it did hold my attention and even inspired me to pray more and not give up when praying for someone. Read the book it is not a waste of time.

This life-changing story dives deep into the invisible realm of spiritual warfare and the battle for our souls. Dekker does a fantastic job, especially in this novel of heartbreak, pulling the reader into the main character and feeling his emotions. This is a redemption story about a man rebelling against God, who has suffered unendurable loss, as well as a page-turning crime novel. Heaven's Wager is a perfect blend of passion and suspense. You will "find yourself pondering it for months to come," from the back of the book, is no exaggeration. A truly remarkable book. Anyone who has read This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness will absolutely love this book!

Heaven's Wager After reading this book I thought for hours about the main character's morals. Heavens Wager is a great book which is an amazing work of art. Ted Dekker is a master of writing, interweaving morals and Christianity together to make a majestic work of literature. I strongly suggest this book to read. Heaven's Wager is a story about a man named Kent Anthony. He has a nice life with his wife and son. The only difference in his life and any other businessman is his mother in law. She thinks she can talk to God. And all of that is all about to change. It is the most unexpected change of his life. Kent, a computer programmer, has made a computer program called "Rooster" that protects against viruses. It is a breakthrough in technology and it is all his.so he thinks. He hopes no one finds out. After his boss hints that he found out, he goes home and hopes for the best. Little does he know, his wife is ill. The next day he goes to work worried, and he feels bad already. His boss doesn't say anything, so he goes on with his work. After half a day he gets a phone call from the hospital. His wife is in the intensive care unit. He is devastated. He goes into denial when she dies, and he goes to work. At work he finds out his boss took the fame and fortune of his program. A few days later, his 10 year old son is killed in a wreck. He thinks it is time to run from his problems. I loved this book, so I can't give the ending away, but he does some bad things and God forgives him. As you see, I am shying from the details, so you can read this masterpiece of literature for yourself. I may be biased because I like Ted Dekker, but that means nothing. I think everyone should read this book. It inspired me and hopefully it will inspire all who read it.

I was floored by this book. I cried several times while reading it. It was fascinating how Dekker wrote about Heaven and God's interaction with Helen. It shows the power of God and His love to overwhelm darkness. If you read no other Christian fiction book, please read this. It will leave an impression on you, I'm sure.

Once again Ted Dekker has won me over and impressed me beyond words with his writing. I started reading Ted Dekker with his circle trilogy and enjoyed it so much I started reading his earlier works, such as Heaven's Wager. From the beginning I was hooked. The story was fast paced, full of surprises and orginial. Not only that, but at the end of the book I found myself weeping. A man who 'has it all' but loses everything fights for a personal justice. In the end He is broken and realizes that what He really never had was an understanding of God's overwhelming love. It is at this point of no return, that He finds true redemption. Amazing! Read it but buy two. Give one to a friend!

Ted Dekker has an insight into Heaven that is far beyond anything I have ever read. This story shows the true mercy and love of a Heavenly Father that cares about his creation more than they could ever imagine. Because of his wonderful way of telling a story and his obvious relationship with God, Ted Dekker has become my new favorite author.
