From the Inside Flap

Imagine Being Pulled Into the Hereafter. While You're Still Alive.
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 book reads like your worse nightmare and your most beatific dream. Protagonist Nick Seagrave, an ex-Marine, Nam vet, and Mr. Tough Businessman is cast into a surreal world of windows and portals, instantly blending visions of beauty and delight with the horrors of hell. In utter helplessness he is chased by a brutal pterodactyl, cringing in a cave, where he reads a cryptic three-line message: "FORWARD" "RED ROAD HOME" "BE CAREFUL WHO YOU TRUST". His journey through this world of windows, and the people and spiritual beings he meets unfolds the story of the Fall of the Image-Bearers, the Price Paid for Redemption, the lies of the Pretender, and the ultimate Triumph of the King. You will find it hard to put this book down, and be utterly refreshed at the end as you were confused at the beginning. So spiritually uplifting, and a tale to cherish as we walk the red road home.

This is a book I hope and pray I'll never forget. The writing is brilliant and the message compelling. The author has a vivid imagination that he uses to the fullest to present a picture of Heaven, Hell, and the choices we make day by day on this Earth. I couldn't recommend this book more highly to anyone searching for truth or meaning in his/her life.

I've read some of Alcorn's books before and found them somewhat interesting. However, I couldn't put "Edge of Eternity" down. After the bible I think this book impacted my life the most. It really got me thinking. Even after a couple of months passages come back to my mind. I've placed Randy Alcorn on my list of favorite authors, with Ted Dekker, Frank Peretti, Alton Gansky and C.S.Lewis.

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.

I finished reading this book two days ago and the vivid images burned in my mind from the book are still quite fresh. I felt as though I had just gotten off a roller coaster when I put the book down. The book just drew me in. I was on the planet Thuros walking alongside Nick Seagrave (the main character).
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.
Excellent book!

This was a strange book . . . I was confused at first, then I thought it was a bit simplistic, then I was just in a hurry to be finished with it. But the ending really got me, and I had to sit back and absorb it for a while. Now that it's been over a year since I read it, I find myself thinking back to certain scenes. It continues to challenge me to step up my walk; I plan to re-read it soon, and would recommend it to anyone.

I enjoyed 'Edge of Eternity' even though it doesn't compare to some of the author's other works.

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.

Edge of Eternity is the first book that I've read by Randy Alcorn. After seeing all of the very positive reviews, and being that I love a good Christian allegory, I was excited to dig into Alcorn's book. Without a doubt, Alcorn does an admirable job of putting some things into perspective and makes some nice comparisons. Unfortunately, despite a well intentioned book, this falls very short of others in the genre. Alcorn's characters are shallow and obvious. The dangers in the book are never scary and the antagonist is less than convincing. Instead of weaving a story that lets the reader do some thinking and soul searching, Alcorn has written a book that spells out every possible temtation and pitfall that could possibly fall on a Christian. He leaves nothing to ponder or imagine because everything is spelled out and obvious.
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.
