Edge of Eternity
by Randy Alcorn
From the cover:
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.

Journey into another world — one with perils and decisions that may seem strikingly familiar!
A first-person narrative, Nick’s story of his journey to the edge of eternity will at times feel like one you’ve been on, even while taking you to an unknown land. It reminded me of classic allegories like Pilgrim’s Progress and Hinds Feet on High Places.
Although I wasn’t sure about the story at the beginning, deep truths are woven into this fantasy that are worth reading for. If you don’t read a lot of fantasy, you may not feel immediately drawn to the story, but I would encourage you to keep reading!
