Randy Alcorn is an English author of religion and spiritual, inspirational and general fiction books best known for his Ollie Chandler Series. He is the founder of Eternal Perspective Ministries an organization that’s dedicated spreading bible teaching and helping the needy. EPM aims to meet the needs of the unfed, unreached, uneducated, unborn, unsupported and unreconciled people around the globe.
Before founding his nonprofit organization, Randy Alcorn served as a co-pastor for over a decade Good Shepherd Church in Oregon. He has ministered in several countries across the globe including China. Additionally, he has also taught part-time faculties of Multnomah University and Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon. He’s a bestselling author of more than 50 books and has written articles for magazines such as Leadership, Discipleship Journal Moody and The Christian Reader. He is a resident of Gresham, Oregon where he lives with his wife and the couple have two married daughters, Angela and Karina.


In the first book in the series, we meet Finney, Jake, and Doc, three good friends from childhood. Even in their 50’s and with families, the three are still good friends and close together. Finney is a businessman and devoted Christian, and he isn’t shy to call his friends to repent when he sees them on the wrong. Then there’s Doc who is the complete opposite of Finney. He is arrogant, and he isn’t interested in anything close to religion, and he’s also unfaithful to his wife. Jake is a columnist at a local newspaper and is caught in the middle. He doesn’t believe in Jesus, he’s divorced and has abandoned his daughter and mother sick from Alzheimer’s, but he isn’t easily offended or defensive as Doc.

One Sunday the three friends are on a pizza run when Doc loses control of his car and crashes. Two days after the crash, both Finney and Doc die leaving their friend Jake stunned and lonely.

Then Jake realizes that it wasn’t an accident. Someone had interfered with their vehicle. Who was this person who wanted the three friends dead? This takes around 400 pages through the novel to unravel. And since Jake is a reporter, making him investigate the person who would have wanted Doc dead makes sense given that Doc had made a lot of enemies with abortion work, philandering, and his position at the hospital. Additionally, it also makes sense the author addresses media bias even though it is running down rabbit trails that are not related to the story. The media bias in Deadline deals with the prejudice against the conservatives and their viewpoints on abortion, homosexuality, teenage sex and education.

Some of the fascinating scenes in the novel are the scenes of heaven. The readers get to see Finney escorted to heaven by his guardian angel and how he’s introduced to the wonders of heaven. While it’s not clear whether everything Randy Alcorn portrays in his book is a true picture of heaven, he however does back up most of his information with the scripture. The story about heaven is thought-provoking, and will undoubtedly leave make you consider how you’re living your life here on earth.


Dominion is the second novel in Ollie Chandler series. When to brutal murders happen close to home, columnist Clarence Abernathy must seek revenge for the murders and finally answer the questions she needs an answer regarding faith and race.

After being dragged into the brutal world of racial conflicts and inner- city gangs, Clarence is persuaded by a fellow reporter Jake to forge a professional partnership with a homicide detective, and soon the two find themselves entangled in the dark forces with some unseen eyes watching their every move from above.

The second in the series offers the reader a detailed glimpse into heaven. Its evident that the author thoroughly researched his characters, spending time with gang detectives and in the inner city to craft the scenes for this second novel in this bestselling series. The story is set in his hometown, Portland, Oregon and the main character in this second novel is Clarence Abernathy, a black journalist whose father played baseball in the old Negro Leagues.

Like the first book in the series, Dominion features a likable and empathetic main character. He played a supporting role in Deadline while Jake played the main character role, but now in the second novel, he takes the stage while Jake takes to the backstage. Clarence is a Christian who thinks he’s living a Christian life because he follows what the Christian laws. But the reality is that he is lukewarm- caught in between and doesn’t have a true relationship with God.

Clarence is a believer of the prosperity gospel, an element of some segments of Christianity. This means that when God doesn’t live up to Clarence’s expectations, he turns his back on God because he feels like he’s been betrayed.

Christians are never promised prosperity upon believing in Jesus Christ. They are promised quite the opposite – they are promised to face persecution and rejection. Unlike genies, God doesn’t wish. He can’t be battered or bargained with. As a Christian, we shouldn’t we should expect a new home or a car in the garage in the morning because we prayed for it because that’s not how God really works. He blesses his people richly but not in the ways of their demands. A portion of the message in this novel is given via sermon probably because the ideas the main character has his in mind comes from a different sermon.

Overall, Dominion is the story of a black man, his family, and neighborhood that deals heavily with racism and also the past that haunts every black American. Most readers wrote to the author who thought that he was black American for his accurate portrayal of the racism theme. Randy Alcorn made good use of theme of dominion in his second book. He is leaving the readers with one main question- whose dominion a person is willing submitting to- God or living in their dominion.
