Truth is, I really struggled with this short little book. You'd think that 109 pages is doable in no time at all. But I just could not get into it. I finally finished it this morning, and this morning is the first time I felt any real interest in this book. I am really not sure why, but this just did not do it for me. I usually like allegories, so it surprises me that this book left me so cold. However, I did finally get into the groove, this morning, while exercising on the eliptical machine. I finally got to the point where Nick Seagraves, the main character, really gets to the point of understanding what Christ offers, and this section almost made up for the rest of the book. The messages are good, and I even learned a bit different way of looking at things, so the time spent struggling was perhaps still valuable. However, when compared to 'Hinds Feet on High Places" or "The Pilgrim's Progress" there just wasn't a lot here. I did appreciate the opportunity to read this little book. I love most of Randy Alcorns' books, so this was an anomaly for me. I think it may be that I felt the condensed nature of this book (summarizing Edge of Eternity, which I had not yet read). At any rate, for whatever reason, this book just did not play well for me.
