Definitely an allegory worth reading! Lately I've really enjoyed reading Randy Alcorn as of late. Fiction, nonfiction, allegory--all of it. This book, The Chasm, is really an adaptation of the more extensive novel Edge of Eternity. I would love to eventually sit down and read the extended version, but The Chasm definitely gives you a taste of the entire story. Acorn does a wonderful job of opening the readers eyes to the unseen spiritual battle being fought all around us. The story of Christ's redemptive work on the cross and the internal struggle of man before coming to the point of repentance is so completely unfathomable in my mind that I loved exploring Alcorn's take on the matter. A great read! If anyone else out there reads this book, I'd love to hear your thoughts too!
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
