Randy Alcorn's Blog: Randy's Books

Randy’s novel Edge of Eternity

Edge of Eternity, by Randy AlcornEdge of Eternity is one of Randy’s novels that’s quite different from some of his other fiction works; it takes place in an imaginary world that allowed him to depict invisible spiritual realities in visible ways. Writing about the book, Randy says, “I believe we all have moments, if we stop and pay attention, where we can sense being on the edge of eternity."

Randy’s Novel Dominion, Background Research, and a Story

Dominion by Randy AlcornRandy’s second novel, Dominion, came as a semi-sequel to his very first, Deadline. The book allowed Randy to tackle the issues of racism and reconciliation as seen through the eyes of the African-American main character, Clarence Abernathy.

At 603 pages, it’s also one of his longer books and required an incredible amount of background research. 

The Heaven Book, Reader Responses, and Longing for Our Eternal Home

Heaven by Randy AlcornOver the years, we’ve received thousands of letters from readers telling us how Randy’s Heaven book has affected their lives. Not only are these stories encouraging to Randy, but they’re also an encouragement to our staff as we continue to share Randy’s writings and teachings about the eternity that awaits us because of what Christ has done on our behalf.

Can a graphic novel be Christ-honoring and gospel-centered?

Graphic novelsI’ve found there’s a common stereotype among believers that a graphic novel is inherently immoral, theologically unsound, and undermines rather than uplifts God’s Word, Christ, and the gospel. It’s true that secular graphic novels frequently have themes and content that dishonor God. But there are exceptions to this. 

Sharing the Message of Eternity

Sharing Randy's Eternity graphic novelAs I shared in a blog last week, I have a missional perspective on my graphic novel EternityGod has laid on my heart a vision for seeding the book far and wide because it includes a clear gospel presentation.

I would appreciate your prayers as this book is distributed. Our ministry is giving away thousands of copies from the first printing to prisoners, Christian camps, youth ministries, and various missions organizations, including Operation Mobilization’s Logos Hope ship which will bring it into ports in many countries.

My Eternity Graphic Novel and the Unreached People Group in Our Midst

Eternity graphic novelI really have a missional perspective on this book. In a way, though it’s in English, because of its visual nature it’s like a translation into another language, a language that some people speak and some don’t. I’ve been realizing more and more that there are not only young people but many adults, especially men—and increasing numbers of YOUNG men—who just aren’t good readers. Many young people are becoming like an unreached people group that needs to hear the gospel in a form that is familiar and compelling enough to reach them.

Introducing Eternity, My First Graphic Novel

Eternity

I’m very excited about my first graphic novel, called Eternity, which is based on Christ’s story of the rich man and Lazarus found in Luke 16. If you’re not familiar with the term, a graphic novel is an extended comic book form (128 pages, over 600 panels of full-color art).The book has just been released and is now available from our ministry in print and as an ebook.

A Joy and a Privilege: Translations of My Books

A Joy and a Privilege: Translations of My Books

One of the things I really love getting in the mail is a new translation of one of my books. They’ve been translated now into over 50 different languages. It’s a joy to see what God is doing in other cultures with books that I’ve written.

Help for Women Under Stress: now available from EPM

Help for Women Under StressSince this book has been unavailable for twenty years, and yet most of it is as relevant as when it first came out, it seemed time for a resurrection, and a thorough update and revision. We’re republishing this because—not surprisingly—women are still under stress!

Safely Home the Musical Drama

Safely Home drama

Last year I received a letter and DVD from Darcy DeLeon, who teaches at Temple Christian School in Lima, Ohio. Darcy and her team turned my novel Safely Home into a musical drama, which was performed by the school’s students last March. A lot of effort went into producing it, and I really appreciate it!
