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.

Devotional Habits, Books I’m Reading, and the Best Constructive Criticism I’ve Ever Received: Part 1 of a Q&A

Why I Write Fiction, and Creativity in Writing

ReadingFor a long time Christians were reticent to enter the field of fiction writing. Although fiction had been popular in the secular field for a long time, it was sparse in Christian publishing.
