Randy Alcorn

   There is nothing I love better than a good book!   I'm in the middle of one right now!  It is called Deadline by Randy Alcorn.
     I recently read a couple of different book reviews of his books saying he is one of the best Christian fiction authors today.  Since I had not read anything by him, I went to to see what he had written and to read some of the book reviews.  All of his books were rated at least 4 1/2 stars so I looked on site where I often find used books at discounted prices--to see if any were available there.  There were lots, so I ordered this one (Deadline), Dominion, and Deception--all of which seemed to be related--and Safely Home.  I received the books last week and have eagerly awaited a time I could begin reading one.  Yesterday was the day.  I am over half way through Decision.  It is my favorite kind of fiction--a good page-turning story that is at the same time educational, thought-provoking, and inspirational!   I can hardly wait to get to the end to see what happens, but I'm already dreading finishing it because it is so good!
    I've often heard popular fiction books described as "a great beach read," which I assume means it is a great "escape" book that gives you a little vacation from daily life while you're reading it.  This book certainly does that, but in the process it also causes you to see things in a different light.  In my mind that is the perfect kind of book to take with me to the beach, or to read when I need a break.
     If you're looking for a good book that "hooks" you from page one and also gives you a new perspective on Heaven--one that makes you feel encouraged and hopeful while keeping your interest so that you don't want to put it down till you finish it--I highly recommend this book!
