Edge of Eternity by Randy Alcorn

A prominent businessman suddenly wakes up in another world where everything is red. The exact place where he wakes up is a cave with all kinds of strange writings on the wall. Only one sentence is intelligible, and it tells him to go to a certain place.
When he goes there, he meets several other people who have also been called into the strange world. From there, they embark on a journey similar to that of Pilgrim's Progress.
There are several unexpected twists to the plot, one in particular being more interesting and original than the rest.
The characters are actually pretty good, considering the type of plot this is. Not many allegories have good characters.
If you thought you had the ends to all allegories figured out, than think again. This one will surprise you.
What Randy Alcorn has done with this book is he has mixed up all kinds of interesting philosophies and shoved them all into one book.
This book is definitely worth your time.
4 stars
