From the Inside Flap
A disillusioned business executive whose life has hit a dead-end, Nick Seagrave has lost loved ones to tragedy and his family to neglect. Now, at a point of great crisis, he unbelievably and inexplicably finds himself transported to what appears to be another world.
Suddenly he's confronted with profoundly clear views of his own past and personality. At the same time, he's enabled to see, hear, taste, and smell the realities of both heaven and hell-realities that force him to face dangers and trials far greater than any he's known before.
Pitted against flying beasts, a monstrous web that threatens to hold him captive, an evil, brooding intelligence, and undeniable evidence of a spiritual world, Nick must finally consider the God he claims not to believe in.
Walking between two worlds, Nick Seagrave prepares to make decisions that will change his life forever, as he stands on the "Edge of Eternity.

This is definitely a book for those who like fantasy, allegory and out of the ordinary fiction. It really inspired me to keep on following the Red Road home.
Nick Seagrave mysteriously appears on this planet with a red sun and two moons and embarks on an eventful journey on the red road to Charis. It is very reminiscent of Christian in The Pilgram's Progress. I found it to be very colorful and imaginative.
This book caused me to reflect on my relationship with the Creator of the universe (World Maker, the book calls Him). Edge of Eternity paints a beautiful picture of Christ's crucifixion and resurrection in a way that you would probably never imagine unless you read this book.
Is your Christian life lacking the luster you have seen in other Christian's lives? Are you feeling defeated by the world, your flesh, the devil? Read this book. It may change the way you look at your life. It may change the way you see God.
This is an allegory of heaven 'Charis' and hell 'Erebus'. It has some very colorful imagery. It also contains numerous thoughtful insights.
The greatest value of this book is that it is one that causes Christians to ponder the importance of their actions in this life regarding the impact that they have on the next life.
I think it is worthwhile. I also strongly recommend these titles by the same author: 'Dominion', 'Deadline', 'Heaven', and 'Safely Home'. I would consider those four all must reads. This one is very good, but not great like those others.
Again, the book isnt terrible. There are some good things in there, but if you're looking for a hard hitting allegory, this isnt it. If you're a Christian looking for something to encourage you, then this book might serve that purpose. But if you're looking for something to give a non-Christian with the hopes that it will make them curious or make them think, then is would be a poor choice. Were I not a Christian, I wouldn't have made it through the book because the comparisons are so obvious and the story very wooden.
I would reccomend instead, Narnia by C.S. Lewis, or if you're looking for something really compelling, The Circle Series (Black, Red, White, and Green) by Ted Dekker.
