This book was the most accurate and stunning mirror on reality I had ever seen. Written by Alcorn and illustrated by artist Javier Saltares, Eternity takes readers on a journey into the realm of first century Jerusalem and then ultimately into two shockingly different spiritual dimensions. 128 pages, softcover.
