- About Randy Alcorn
As a boy, Randy enjoyed reading comic books and science fiction, anything that stimulated his imagination. After he became a Christian, his youth pastor gave him a key to his office and said he could read whatever he found on the shelves. Thus began Randy's love for Christian books. He was especially influenced by C. S. Lewis—an influence that continues today. In fact, he says that he's never written a book, fiction or nonfiction, in which he hasn't been influenced by Lewis in some way. In the spring of 2008 he was able to have an extended visit at the home of Douglas Gresham, C. S. Lewis's stepson.
