A thumbnail review (just for you)
Deadline is the first book by Randy Alcorn I ever read. I must admit, I had a tough time putting it down and could not wait to read his other writings. In this novel, Mr. Alcorn takes his readers on a journey with Jake, the main character, who is a journalist seeking the truth behind a suspicious accident. Oblivious to any danger for himself, Jake seeks to find answers and ultimately discovers the meaning of his own existence.
Mr. Alcorn gives his reader an insightful glimpse of both heaven and hell as the experiences of his characters unfold. He is an excellent author and I have thoroughly enjoyed every one of his books I've read thus far. He has also written a number of non-fiction books on difficult subjects such as Pro-Life/Pro-Choice.
P.S. I've included a big arrow link to his blog, Eternal Perspectives, which is a great way to take a glimpse into his writings before you purchase a book.
