Resources: About Randy Alcorn
By December 22, 2010| I remember when I was growing up in the Orient area, near Gresham Oregon, just two miles from where I live now. I enjoyed sledding and especially loved those Christmases when it was snowing (which was a number of them, though not as many as I would have liked).
By October 23, 2013| Randy talks about some authors he likes to read and listen to on audio books, speaking to a group of CEO's (both secular and Christian).
By April 13, 2011I just read a wonderful novel, Jayber Crow, by Wendell Berry. I like Angela Hunt and Jim Bell as novelists, and anything by Francine Rivers. I know Ang, Jim and Frani, and respect them, which helps, too. For nonfiction, I like John Piper, D. A. Carson, Tim Keller, and others. |

By February 4, 2010I enjoy hanging out with Nanci, my wife, and our kids and grandkids. I coach high school guys tennis, so I play three or four times a week. Running around on the tennis court with seventeen-year-olds is a great way to get exercise (I’m the singles coach, and we’ve won the district championship four years in a row, which is fun.) I love investing in the lives of these young men. I’ve had wonderful opportunities with them. Many of them read my books and we talk about them, and about the Lord. Just yesterday I gave one ... |
By April 13, 2011On the Narnia movies, generally I really like them. There are small criticisms, things I think would make them better, but overall I really enjoy them. Doug Gresham, one of the co-producers (and C. S. Lewis's step-son) is a friend. Let me just say we all owe Doug a huge debt for holding to certain key aspects of Lewis's stories, or the movies could have turned out a vast departure from the core tenets of the books. |
By December 4, 2005Christmas is coming. We live our lives between the first Christmas and the second. We look back to that first Christmas and the life of Jesus on the earth for some 33 years—but we look forward to the Christmas in which the resurrected Christ will return and we, his resurrected people, will live with him forever on the New Earth. And right when we think “It doesn’t get any better than this”....it will! |
