Nick Seagrave is a disillusioned business executive who has lost loved ones to tragedy and his family to neglect. Now, at a point of great crisis, he finds himself inexplicably transported to what appears to be another world. Suddenly he's confronted with profoundly clear views of his own past and personality. And he's enabled to see, hear, taste, and smell the realities of both heaven and hell - realities that force him to face dangers and trials far greater than any he's known before.
Pitted against flying beasts; a monstrous web that threatens to hold him captive; an evil, brooding intelligence; and undeniable evidence of a spiritual world, Nick must finally come to grips with the God he claims not to believe in.
Walking between two worlds - where every choice he makes casts a vote for heaven or hell - Nick Seagrave prepares to make decisions that will change his life forever, as he stands on the Edge of Eternity.

All I can say is, "Wow" - This book is incredibly insightful into the Christian life and understanding of what Christ has done for us and the purpose for our lives. SO creative - definitely had to come from direct revelation from the Holy Spirit. I listened with my 13 year old son on a long road trip and just continually sat there amazed at how it was packed with creative ways to express things. So many aspects of the Christian walk were brought out and the way you come to know what Christ did for us totally blew me away. What a great way to understand it. Being a creative person and thinker I'm not usually surprised by new ways to explain things creatively, but I sat intriged with it all. Everything included in the story was meaninful and served a purpose for understanding our "walk" better. My son really got into it as well. The battle scenes were so well done and described; the warrior in him was sparked. I will definitely look into more of this author's books and I want to get a copy for lots of people. I think it's something I will listen to again and again to refresh and refocus me. One thing though, the narrator spoke pretty fast for a audiobook, though it kind of matched the story. I had to get used to that. Compared to others it was on fast speed.
I would say it was time well spent after the first hour or so. Very difficult to get into it, which is not normal for his books.
The voices were very dull
I would like to read the whole unabridged book. There seem to be loose ends never fully developed which makes me feel I will never be satisfied with it till I buy the print version.
I think the whole book is quite interesting. Randy Alcorn is a good writer.
The part I would like to change is to have a woman's character have a female voice. It is a bit confusing to hear a male voice doing the female parts.
I think it was, but it makes me think of the fact that for the book credit I could have gotten a longer book then 4 hours and instead gotten Safely Home or another longer book.
From now on I think I will try to find unabridged versions.
Most of the books I select I expect to be better than most - not as good as some. I am typically surprised one way or the other...
I could not get past the audible sound effects and abandonded the story... I rated the story avarage since the audio was what made me turn it off.
When Nick could see Joshua for who he really was
The title, it says it all
I recommend this to everyone. It's enlightening and gives such a parallel view to our lives and reality of Whom we belong to...not ourselves...
This story came to me just as I am experiencing a time of heartache and betrayal. The poignant story of the struggle of traveling the "red road" enabled me to see that; although the intensity of my fears, doubts and temptation to lose hope are very real, the battle is not unique to me, but is part of God's plan and purpose to help me recognize my need to daily experience his grace when my own resources are completely drained, to actively connect with fellow travelers and allow God's incomprehensible wisdom to create a faith that is deeper, stronger and more humbling than before. The description of heaven and the glorious fulfillment of my deepest desires gives me perspective and strength to surrender myself to God's design one day at a time. Thank you Randy for using your gift to sustain and encourage fellow "travelers:"
