The Chasm: A Journey to the Edge of Life
"A Journey He Couldn't Miss... and a Step He Couldn't Take"
He found himself a traveler in the strangest of lands. Where invisible secrets come starkly into sight. Where the fairest of companions leads the way into unsuspected danger and darkness. Where hidden battles burst into the open. Where so much is grasped...and so much more seems unattainable.
Driven by a yearning he doesn't understand, compelled toward a destination he can't quite see, the traveler navigates the inhospitable landscape with determination and a flicker of something like hope--despite the obstacles that seem to unerringly block his path.
Best-selling novelist Randy Alcorn weaves a supernatural interplay of wills and motives, lusts and longings, love and sacrifice. It's a potent mix that leaves every reader wondering: "Do I really understand this world I live in? Do I really understand myself? Is there more to all this than I've ever dared hope?"

- Different from the rest! by Karen - FBC Alexandria Library on 5/27/2012
Unlike the other Randy Alcorn books that I have enjoyed (especially the Deadline, Dominion, Deception trilogy and his other allegories), I had a difficult time understanding the book at first. It seemed very fragmented and purposeless. Even though I could tell it was written in the vein of "Pilgrim's Progress," the jumping from scene to scene was very disconcerting and confusing.
I put the book aside and picked it up again a few months later, I was finally able to connect with the character and the format, and I wasn't able to put it down until I finished it! The story had gripped my heart, and the compassion I felt for Nick as he progressed through the journey was reflective of many incidents in my life that paralleled his.
So this is just an encouragement to those of you who purchase the book, persevere and you will be rewarded!
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review
