Safely Home

Safely Home (Tenth Anniversary Edition), Randy Alcorn, Tyndale House, Fiction, July 19, 2011, 434 pages.

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.

My thoughts: 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 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.

My rating: 5 stars

This book was provided free by the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and the opinions expressed are my own.

  1. Somewhat irrelevant... but the cover is very Chinese-y. :P

  2. Yes, it's a great cover! Very fitting.

  3. So did I! I had heard a long time ago that it was high up there in admired books, so I was glad to get the opportunity to review it.
