Maggie Grace: A Reflection of the Goodness of the God Who Made Her

By Randy Alcorn | March 12, 2012
Recently when we were filming in my office, our Golden retriever Maggie, who is growing more each day, made a guest appearance. Thought I would share it with you. Maggie is a gift from God to Nanci and me. We love dogs in general and this one in particular.

March for Life, Politics, Comments, and Huckabees at Norris Ranch

By Randy Alcorn | January 22, 2008
I'm interrupting my new series of blogs on longing. Why? Partly because today, January 22, is the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the most tragic judicial decision in American history. It’s also the annual March for Life, which I’ve participated in, and where my heart has been today.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

By Randy Alcorn | January 17, 2010
Every year, while Eternal Perspective Ministries doesn’t close for every holiday, I make sure we’re closed on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. I want to send a message that it is a serious and legitimate holiday that deserves observance. 

Mike Huckabee, Iowa Caucus and boasting in God Alone

By Randy Alcorn | January 4, 2008
Last night we were with a group of folks here in Oregon, at Heidi's restaurant in Gresham, watching the election coverage. The gathering was hosted by nineteen year old brothers Alex and Brett Harris, who run therebelution.com website, which is in my opinion the best place your teenagers can go online.

More Than a Seatbelt Ad

Here’s a beautiful seatbelt ad that speaks powerfully about more than seatbelts.

Motivated by Eternal Reward?

By Randy Alcorn | November 13, 2008
Readers of my books often question whether the doctrine of eternal rewards is biblical. They say, It seems self-centered to do good works so I will be rewarded.

My Favorite Fiction

By Randy Alcorn | May 15, 2008
I think of how God had his hand on my life long before I was in high school, when I read for the first time a book that really captivated me...the Bible. That Book came alive to me when I met the Author, who soon became my best friend. Can't wait for all the adventures He has awaiting us, His children, in the new universe.

My Favorite Nonfiction Books

By Randy Alcorn | May 8, 2008
Books and bookstores have had an enormous influence on my own life. I came to Christ as a teenager, at Powell Valley Covenant Church in Gresham, less than a mile from where I live now. My first youth pastor, Paul Siwick, did me a huge favor—he gave me a key to his office, so I could go in any time and read his books, hundreds of them. I read everything I could get my hands on.

My latest novel, Deception (and various digressions)

By Randy Alcorn | July 5, 2007
Deception is a first person murder mystery told by wisecracking and lovable homicide detective Ollie Chandler. It was a fun book to write, though it took a lot of time and effort.
