Product Description

It begins on a lazy summer day in a small, secluded mountain town named Paradise. But in Paradise, nothing is as it seems. When a stranger named Marsuvees Black appears and announces he's come to bring hope and grace to Paradise, the town isn't sure how to respond. He offers dazzling love, hope, faith, and fun . . . the kind of fun everyone desires but is too timid to pursue. He knows the unspoken secrets of each person's heart--and has the power to grant them.

Tucked deep in the nearby canyons is a monastery long hidden from the world. Within its walls is power beyond comprehension. Yet that power is quickly slipping out of control. As dark clouds and sandstorms shut Paradise off from the rest of the world, the unthinkable happens. Readers will be shocked as they discover the true secrets of this sleepy town. The ultimate collision between good and evil begins.

Publisher's Description

Welcome to Paradise.

Epic battles of good and evil are happening all around us.

Today that battle comes to town with the sound of lone footsteps clacking down the blacktop on a hot, lazy summer afternoon. The black-cloaked man arrives in the sleepy town of Paradise and manages to become the talk of the town within the hour. Bearing the power to grant any unfulfilled dream, he is irresistible.

Seems like bliss . . . but is it?
Or is hell about to break loose in Paradise?

    I loved this book!!! When I first started reading it, I didn't know what to expect so I was a bit surprised with the plot...it was gory at times, and the way that the worm slime affected people was disturbing. Nevertheless, the allegory, based on Jesus's pain when he endured the cross for us, was fantastic and you don't even see it coming until it's already there! So overall, a great read that keeps you on the edge of your seat...you don't wanna miss out on this book. Another amazing good vs. evil story!!!!

    Typical fabulous Dekker! Showdown gives a wonderful picture of Christ's sacrifice and the reality of our free will! It is gory in places but in spite of the "worm gel" (which created such a vivid, disgusting picture) you want to keep reading! I absolutely loved the allegory....it was so bizarre and yet so easily understood. A late night page turner!

    WOW! Say it backwards. WOW! I couldn't believe how great this book is. Showdown gives a FANTASTIC allegory of Christ and His great sacrifice and victory. You never know what in Heaven and Earth is going to happen next and nothing makes sense until the very end. Absolutely incredible! Bravo, Ted Dekker!

    I am a huge Dekker fan, but not a big fan of this one. I found it somewhat disturbing and a little odd. Meaning, a little humor thrown in which I thought was out of place. And other things mentioned that I just thought was disjointed and strange. I just wasn't engrossed in this one like I usually am with Ted's books.
