Safely Home

I was going to say, if you are looking for a good book to read this is it.  But even if you are not looking for a book to read, you should read this book!  This book is probably top 2 in having the most influence on my walk with the Lord.  Every believer needs to read this book!  The main characters in the book are Harvard roommates who have reconnected 30 years later.  While at Harvard, Ben Felding led Li Quan to the Lord.  After graduation Li Quan returned to China as a Christian.  Ben entered the business world.  30 years later, a business opportunity took Ben to China where he ended up living with Li Quan and his family in their one room house for 6 weeks.  As Christians in the United States we do not really face persecution, this book is a great reminder of what is really going on in this world.  We must not get too comfortable in this world, IT IS NOT OUR HOME!

  2. Thanks Kim. I'm our church librarian and am pulling a list together of new titles in preparation for a book shower. I'll be sure to add this title. Have you read Heaven by Randy Alcorn? I haven't read it yet, but several folks in my church have said that it is a must read!

  3. Connie, i have not read Heaven, but I have heard it is great too. This is the first book I have read by him. I have several friends who have lived in China and they say it is amazing how accurately he captured the Chinese culture around Christianity
