A character in the novel being immersed in the wondrous sights in Heaven (in the 31st chapter in Deadline by Randy Alcorn) after dying in a car crash:
“I understand as never before the Scriptures describing Christians as aliens and strangers and pilgrims on earth. That place was not my home. I spent my time living in a rented room, on borrowed time.
My body was weak, my vision impaired, my mind under attack. I was tempted and worn down.
But everything is different now. This is the world for which you made me, the place I feel completely at home.”
