Deadline is the story of a politically correct journalist forced by tragic and mysterious circumstances to come to terms with his own mortality. In the process he must also deal with the consequences of his skewed perspectives on life, family, morality, and religion. Intended for believers and unbelievers.
It portrays friendship, family, faith, morality, social decline and media bias in the context of an unpredictable and hopeful story of personal crisis and change. The second story line, on death’s other side, compliments the who-done-it mystery. Deadline is a unique pro-family, pro-values, pro-life, pro-faith book. It portrays the vital connection between how we think and live in the present, and how that will inevitably impact our future, both on earth and in eternity.
Randy Alcorn is a wonderful Christian Fiction author. This book while showing us a beautifully told work of such does not overpower the work itself. I love reading Christian Fiction, but for others who do not, can still read this book and enjoy it, without feeling overwhelmed by such topics. Alcorn’s vision of Heaven in this book is truly inspiring and beautifully told. The mystery surrounding the main character as he truly tries to find out out what really happened is intriguing and ingenious as well. This page turner was very fast paced and i found the characters complex and original. This being the first book by Alcorn I have read, keeps me wanting to read more works by him. I do believe I will continue this series as well as his other works. Thank you Randy for sending me this book in exchange for my honest review. 4 stars from me!
