Resources: Randy's Books

Dominion on Death Row

While Randy was writing his novel Dominion, several people gathered together more than once to pray not only for Randy’s strength and perseverance but for the eternal impact it would have on people’s lives. God is faithfully answering those prayers hundreds and thousands of times over. This is just one of the stories.

ProLife Answers to ProChoice Arguments: Introduction

ProLife Answers to  ProChoice ArgumentsWhen I wrote the first edition of this book in the early 1990s, I wanted to supply people with a carefully researched, highly useable resource. I had no idea the impact it would have. The book sold over 75,000 copies, a huge number for a book on this subject. Most importantly, it has been repeatedly used by thousands of people in their attempts to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.  Many prolife groups use the book to train their volunteers and their speakers. College ethics classes use it as a textbook. I have received letters from hundreds of high school and college students who’ve used the book to help them prepare speeches or write term papers and editorials for their school newspapers. I’ve spoken to three thousand public high school students at a single convention, distributing free copies of the book, which they eagerly snatched up. Pastors have asked to use it in their sermons, people write and ask if they can use it to construct letters to newspapers, family members, and representatives. (The answer is always yes.)

Heaven for Kids: A story from Randy

I give away lots of books to people I come across, believing God gives me divine appointments every day.

Heaven doesn’t fit popular stereotypes

The popular notion of the “sweet by and by” is often one of clouds, pain-free bliss and not much else—except for the occasional angel floating by with a harp. If one’s idea of eternity is a happy pill, such an image might be appealing.

Author Randy Alcorn, in his bestselling book Heaven, illustrates contemporary Christianity’s failure in teaching on eternal life by quoting a pastor who admitted: “I can’t stand the thought of that endless tedium. To float around in the clouds with nothing to do but strum a harp ... it’s all so terribly boring. Heaven doesn’t sound much better than hell. I’d rather be annihilated than spend eternity in a place like that.”

Heaven: An Interview with The Outlook

HeavenThe Outlook: What motivated you to write on the subject of Heaven? How long did it take to research Heaven?

Randy:
I heard countless people, including a pastor friend who’s a grad of our school, make negative comments about heaven, about dreading and fearing heaven. It grieved and confused me. And it motivated me to clean the slate of my long-held assumptions (largely based on the assumptions of pastors and teachers and writers) and try to study what Scripture actually said.

I found this subject fascinating. I began reading books on Heaven, many of them out of print. Many ...
