Review: `The Chasm` A Journey to the Edge of Life (by) Randy Alcorn
Fiction/Christian/Classic & Allegory
This book is about Nick Seagrave and his quest to find truth. Nick is faced with his past, the choices he made and the choices he can make now.
There are several original illustrations by Mike Biegel that add much to the story. Although I would be able to picture the story without them.
There are light and dark warriors fighting for and against Nick. His destiny is either the chasm or Charis the 'City of Light.' There is sin and temptation pulling him one way, faith and eternal life pulling him another way.
The story reminded me of John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress", where Christian must find the correct path to take on his journey.
Randy Alcorn does a great job bringing out the plan of salvation in this 128 page allegory. There is a reader's guide in the back of the book which makes this appropriate for book study. I believe this book would be good reading for the secular or Christian reader or seekers of the truth.
