Publisher Comments:

A Journey He Couldn’t Miss… and a Step He Couldn’t Take

He found himself a traveler in the strangest of lands. Where invisible secrets come starkly into sight. Where the fairest of companions leads the way into unsuspected danger and darkness. Where hidden battles burst into the open. Where so much is grasped…and so much more seems unattainable.

   Driven by a yearning he doesn’t understand, compelled toward a destination he can’t quite see, the traveler navigates the inhospitable landscape with determination and a flicker of something like hope—despite the obstacles that seem to unerringly block his path.

   Best-selling novelist Randy Alcorn weaves a supernatural interplay of wills and motives, lusts and longings, love and sacrifice. It’s a potent mix that leaves every reader wondering: Do I really understand this world I live in? Do I really understand myself? Is there more to all this than I’ve ever dared hope?

INCLUDES 12 ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATIONS

Review:

"Alcorn offers a companion to his novel, Edge of Eternity, in this Pilgrim's Progress — style allegory about a man who comes to see his own wasted life through a series of misadventures, battles, and sins. These lead him to a chasm he cannot cross without the help of trusted — should he trust them? — guides, most importantly a Christ figure, the Woodsman, and a tempter, Joshua. The end is not utopia, but a life with unexpected joys and faithful companions. For those who appreciate allegory, Alcorn's fills the bill even as it also includes the realities of contemporary life: 'I gazed into the emptiness of my daughter's eyes. I started pushing and shoving. I wanted to kill the men who lusted after her — vile men whose daughters I lusted after.' Nothing here tops classic Christian allegories, but noteworthy is a 'new creation' view of afterlife: 'You will live on a new earth — the old earth made new.... I came not to destroy but to redeem my fallen creation.' (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
