The Old, Old Story Freshly Told

Randy Alcorn’s Chasm is a nicely woven presentation of the gospel in an allegorical format. It read rapidly at one short sitting and held my attention throughout.

As I read, I kept thinking of John Bunyan and Bedford jail! Having read something of the author’s background, I thought, “Now, there’s a connection!”

I especially appreciated the manner in which the author weaved The Spirit’s calling, the doctrine of sanctification and progress while in Charis and the relationship between the Woodsman’s felling of the tree and the ministry of the Lord Jesus prior to the crucifixion. Awesome.

Not having read The Edge of Eternity, my appetite has been whetted.

I received this book free from Multnomah Books as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
