Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now available in paperback. "Safely Home" is the winner of the Gold Medallion for fiction, a soul-stirring story of two college friends who reconnect after 20 years. One is living life apart from God in comfortable corporate America while the other is living for Christ under intense persecution in China.

Synopsis:

A soul-stirring story of two college friends who reconnect after 20 years. One is living life apart from God in comfortable corporate America, while the other is living for Christ under intense persecution in China. This challenging book will convict the heart of readers to live in the light of eternity.

Synopsis:

Is this the day I die?

Quan stiffened at the shout behind him. The voice rang with the authority of the Gong An Ju, the Public Security Bureau. You meet in the night like the criminals you are. How dare you defy the law? In three minutes, Scarbrow said matter-of-factly, we will shoot every man and womanand childwho does not declare himself loyal to the people rather than the gweilos, foreign devils.

Surely this is the day.

American business executive Ben Fielding has no idea what his brilliant old college roommate is facing in China. But when theyre reunited in China after twenty years, the men are shocked at what they discover about each other.

Thrown together in an hour of encroaching darkness, watched by unseen eyes, both must make choices that will determine not only the destinies of two men, but two families, two nations . . . and two worlds.

All royalties will be donated to the persecuted church around the world.

To me, this book wasn't as eye-opening, since I've read memoirs about persecuted Chinese Christians, but because I did so, I can confirm this book is very accurate. To others, however, it may be very eye-opening, and I hope you read it, if you have not already. This is a book any and every Christian ought to read. Even non-believers may find it breaking down their arguments and arousing pity. It is a story of two worlds: America and China, yet at the same time, Heaven and Earth. My heart goes out to China.

Tyndale has released a tenth anniversary edition, with a note from the author. Summarized, it says that persecution in China is still like it is described in the book. The book is still relevant in this matter, and we should continue to aid them in any way we can, including prayer.

To others, however, it may be very eye-opening, and I hope you read it, if you have not already. This is a book any and every Christian ought to read. Even non-believers may find it breaking down their arguments and feeling pity. It is a story of two worlds. America and China, and also Heaven and Earth. (I am not indicating similarities between them) Because of this book, my heart goes out to China.

Great book. You could feel the tensions between the two college friends when they met again after many years of being apart. The American man had turned away from his faith, whereas the other man kept strong in his beliefs. Would highly recommend this book.
