Randy Alcorn's Books Provide a Double Blessing

Randy Alcorn is one of the most popular Christian writers of our day and, in works of both fiction and non-fiction, he has illuminated and challenged hundreds of thousands. Indeed, over 6 million of his books are in print and/or audio formats. Therefore, I have little doubt that many of you have been inspired by such Alcorn books as Pro-Life Answers to Pro-Choice Arguments, Heaven, Deadline, Dominion, Lord Foulgrin's Letters, and Safely Home.

But are you aware that by buying a Randy Alcorn book, you are are not only opening a blessing for yourself but for others as well? For all of the royalties from Alcorn's books go to Eternal Perspective Ministries, the Christian organization that has been among the finest pro-life, pro-family, pro-missions around. Quite remarkably, EPM then gives away those royalties (100% of them!) to support other Christian ministries and missionaries around the world.

For instance, in just this last year, nearly 40,000 Randy Alcorn books were given away to a variety of mission and para-church organizations. And $437,818 in book royalties were given to worthy Christian ministries. The total since EPM began is over five million dollars given away! Wow.

So remember this when it comes time for you to buy another book. Having read Randy Alcorn for years and having interviewed him several times in the days of "Vital Signs" radio programs, I can testify that his dedication as a researcher is superb and his courage in taking on subjects that other Christian authors studiously avoid is magnificent. The sales figures on his books prove that his writing and story-telling skills are first rate. And now you know that, in addition to all of that, Randy Alcorn's generosity and vision for the Lord's work are absolutely wonderful.

So reading Randy Alcorn provides a unique double blessing -- one that will change and enrich your life and yet another that will serve as an investment in the Lord's work way beyond you.

Randy Alcorn books can be purchased right from the Eternal Perspective Ministries web site. It's a terrific place to learn more about the author, the EPM organization and a whole lot of very helpful information for Christians wanting to serve God to their very best.
