Reviews - What do customers think about Deadline (Repack)?
Deadline Oct 4, 2008
Alcorn brings much of his research from his book "Heaven" into this story. Although I don't like fiction, I couldn't put this one down
Deadline Sep 16, 2008
A very interesting book!!! A mix of religion and mystery. Very thought provoking.
No wonder it was on the Bestseller list for 36 months! Aug 12, 2008
This was such an exciting,suspenseful,Christian mystery novel.
Wonderful and thorough character development.One really gets drawn into the story of these 3 guys and their families.
The moral and social issues that are examined are though-provoking.
The author succeeded on so many levels to make this book a joy to read.
An excellent work of fiction book by a true scholar Aug 3, 2008
My wife and I have been reading Heaven and enjoying it immensely, so I was very eager to check out his fiction works.
Alcorn makes a lot of thought-provoking points to Christians and others alike. There are a number of passages presented in the form of letters, newspaper columns and articles which could be easily used as text materials for advocacy groups. Every believer with a cause should check out his material here.
I was particularly struck by a passage that basically suggested that liberals have success in the media because they know how to relate to editors, writers and publishers, and that conservatives generally don't. Alcorn's not so subtle implication is that if we want to get our message out more effectively, we'd better learn how to relate and speak on their terms. (This is just one of many subtopics of the book.)
His descriptions of heaven are incredibly thought provoking. Again, having read Heaven, it was a delight to read a narrative account of heaven.
My only criticism, shallow as it may be, is that the book is pretty long. Alcorn covers a lot of ground here in terms of storyline, politics, theology, etc. and it may have been too much for one book. Having said that, I would highly recommend this book!
