Still a great read!

I read this book when it was first published, on the recommendation of a friend. Although a bit rough to get into, after page 75, it takes off & I didn't want to put it down. The three main characters set up the scenario for me to decide where I was in my belief system...
I read this book when it was first published, on the recommendation of a friend. Although a bit rough to get into, after page 75, it takes off & I didn't want to put it down. The three main characters set up the scenario for me to decide where I was in my belief system, and by the end of the book, my faith became better grounded & my view of Heaven & eternity more important. The fact that Alcorn includes a kind of "apology" in the back explaining that his fictional accounts were based on scripture, helped me to use my imagination to think about what my view of what Heaven would be like! Since reading this book, I've purchased over 10 copies & given them away to friends & even a pastor. For someone who LOVES mystery who-done-its w/ a focus on the earthly & the spiritual, this is a must-read! It will change your focus, choices & your life.

Not impressed

I finished reading Deadline only by forcing myself. This book is mostly the authors opinions on abortions, AIDs, and homosexuality with a poorly authored plot around it. I will not be able to force myself to read Dominion.

    Preachy ... but a good ending nonetheless

    This was a fairly entertaining book but I can't say that I couldn't put it down. Still, I thought the ending was definitely better than average. I felt that this book, like other Christian fiction (especially the Left Behind series), suffers from a deplorable excess of preaching, thinly veiled by a neglected plot. For example, Alcorn repeatedly beats the dead horse of abortion hoping that the sheer volume will win you over. For future reference, I think better and more influentional fiction would be slightly more subtle (and less repetitive) in addressing an issue. Not just for the sake of those who disagree with your point but also for those who agree.
