The Chasm by Randy Alcorn

The Chasm is adapted from Randy Alcorn's book Edge of Eternity.

Nick Seagrave has been brought from our world into another, where spiritual battles can be seen, where a red road holds the secret to eternal life, and a chasm awaits those who try to find Charis, the City of Light.

I read Edge of Eternity several yeas ago and loved it. The Chasm is quite short, about 110 pages, and it took me a couple of hours to read. It nicely condenses Nick Seagraves' allegorical journey to Charis into something maybe a Bible study group would enjoy reading together and discussing. Enough is told of the backstory that readers new to the story won't feel lost, and those who have enjoyed Edge of Eternity will appreciate the book's focus on the chasm and the way the Woodsman finally makes it crossable. The only thing I misses from Edge of Eternity was how Alcorn fleshed out the other characters besides Nick.

Altogether, The Chasm makes a short, enjoyable read that will introduce readers nicely to Edge of Eternity.

*I received this book for free via Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group's Blogging For Books program*
