Safely Home book review
Title: Safely Home
Author: Randy Alcorn
Genre: Christian Contemporary Fiction
Plot: Ben Fielding is a successful American Business man. Ben goes on a business trip to China and stays in the home of his old Harvard roommate, Li Quan, who is now a devout Christian and a member of an illegal Home Church.Ben doesn't understand why Li Quan is willing to suffer for his faith instead of following China's regualations.
As Ben starts to see life through Li Quan's life Ben realizes he isn't as successful as he once thought.
Wow! Was this book convicting and encouraging. Li Quan and his wife Ming are the most Christ-like and strong fictional characters I have encountered. They are wonderful examples of how you can praise God and give him all the glory while facing persecution.
This book really opened my eyes to how we can't ignore the needs and sufferings of fellow believers. It has also encouraged me to keep the persecuted church in my thoughts and prayers often.
I highly recommend this book to everyone 15 and older.
My rating: 4
