A few years back, a friend of mine had suggested I read it.
At the time I wasn’t an active reader of Christian fiction, but she told me that I would really enjoy this book.
Enjoy isn’t exactly the word I would use to describe how I felt after reading this book.
It’s hard to even find the words.
Awe struck, moved, dumbfounded (in a good way), speechless..
Safely Home is a beautifully written fiction that takes you on a thrilling roller coaster of emotions. You’ll be immediately drawn into the characters lives, but later struck by the reality of the persecuted church.
I feel like I’m not doing a good job explaining/reviewing this book. It’s just hard to explain how GREAT it is.
I’ll say this – Safely Home will always be a book I suggest to friends and will always have on my book shelf.
From Tyndale Books:
Is this the day I die? Li Quan asks himself this question daily, knowing that he might be killed for practicing his faith. American businessman Ben Fielding has no idea what his brilliant former college roommate is facing in China. He expects his old friend has fulfilled his dream of becoming a university professor. But when they are reunited in China after twenty years, both men are shocked at what they discover about each other. Thrown together in an hour of encroaching darkness, both must make choices that will determine not only the destinies of two men, but two families, two nations, and two worlds.
