The story of how I, Julian Carter, and my precious two-year old son, Stephen, left Atlanta Georgia and found ourselves on a white sailboat, tossed about like a cork on a raging sea off of Australia's northern tip in 1963, is harrowing.
But it pales in comparison to what happened deep in the jungle where I was taken as a slave by a savage tribe unknown to the world. Some places dwell in darkness so deep that even God seems to stay away.
There, my mind was torn in two by the gods of the earth. There, one life ended so another could begin.
Some will say I was a fool for making the choices I made. But they would have done the same. They, too, would have embraced death if they knew what I knew, and saw through my eyes.
My name is Julian and this is my story. But more, it is the story of my son who was born to change the world.
From deep in the impenetrable jungles where New York Times bestselling author Ted Dekker was born and raised, comes OUTLAW, an epic adventure of two worlds that perhaps only he could write. Full of harrowing twists, sweeping violence, and wild love, Outlaw takes us beyond the skin of this world to another unseen.

ABOUT TED DEKKER
TED DEKKER is a New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty novels with a total of more than 5 million books in print. He is known for thrillers that combine adrenaline-laced plots with incredible confrontations between good and evil.
Outlaw by Ted Dekker is a brilliant read, but different than his other books. Ted describes the places and people so well you feel like you are there and experiencing these same things.
Outlaw is a story about a young woman Julian whom had a dream and it occurred very often. She believed it was telling her to take her son and go to a different land to be a missionary. They were involved in a shipwreck and that is where the story starts.
Ted has said that Outlaw is a book closer to his real self than all of the others. One part of Outlaw talks about everyone having two selves. One part right now we are putting on costumes like being a mother, doctor, teacher, son, and that self can be killed, but our other true self is our spiritual self which will live forever. It is a very sweet, touching look at what we really are and how we should contemplate on this.
One of my favorite lines in Outlaw are these words “The roles you identify with are not the true you, they are only the costume you wear for a short time.”
This is a book that I wish everyone would read. I highly recommend it. Another excellent book by Ted Dekker.
