I have to confess. Starting this book, I wasn’t at all sure I could make it to Chapter 2. It seemed wordy; the pages were very full with hardly any space outside the margins. I found it to be slow and thought the author was giving me far too much information on each of the central characters. However ~
I’m extremely glad I stuck with it. I can liken it to taking the car up the ramp to Thunder Mountain Railroad. Once it started moving, it was a ride with every bit of excitement. The plot was phenomenal, the characters completely needed the depth that they had been given.
Randy Alcorn’s work was completely new to me, although I was aware of his writing on heaven. I encourage you to visit his site here http://waterbrookmultnomah.com/catalog.php?work=1663 and get to know his work. You will not regret it.
“Deadline” was a long read for me, and I highly recommend it. Many moral debates are included and are handled with the utmost grace, tact and courtesy. "I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review."
