This book is so fantastically written. It is life changing to realize just how much we take for granted and how much loving Jesus can cost. It is life changing to realize just how much we take for granted and how much loving Jesus can cost

Safely Home - Randy Alcorn. Martin looked at Ben with undisguised admiration. Ten years ago when you told us you could bring in millions of dollars if you studied Mandarin on company time, I thought you’d gone crazy. 1. THREE MEN watched intently as peculiar events occurred, one right after the other, on opposite sides of the globe. What’s happening? asked the first, tall and dark-skinned. I don’t know, replied the man with long black hair. Boy, did it work! They trust us-you and Jeffrey, especially.

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.
  • Let's face it, the title "Safely Home" has a placid, unappealing sound to it. In fact, before seeing the cover, I thought perhaps Randy was delving into the Christian romance market.
    That all changed when I saw the Chinese writing on the dust jacket. Having travelled in China, smuggling Bibles and sharing my faith, I was intrigued. Then, I peeled back the jacket to discover the amazing picture of a Chinese believer held in Jesus' arms. Standing there in the bookstore, I was hit with emotion, with moisture in my eyes. Suddenly, the title "Safely Home" made sense. The persecution of the Chinese church is real, and Alcorn shows clearly the difference between the state church and the underground church. I've met some of these underground believers. Alcorn captures their heart for God in ways that I've never seen in fiction before. He captures much of the Chinese believers' humility and struggle in this heartfelt novel.
    The contrast between two former college friends, one a Chinese doctor, the other an American businessman, is credible and lends itself perfectly to the contrast in their levels of faith. Through the looking glass of this story, Alcorn forces us to weigh our own faith. Do we know what it means to stand for our beliefs? Do we know what it means to pay a price for our integrity?
    Although Alcorn can come across as preachy at times, he always has something worth saying. By mixing a fascinating cultural and spiritual struggle in a fictional form, he opens our hearts to hear the truth...The response is up to us.

  • If you are a believer then this book is life changing...it is a "fictional" account of the persecuted church in China and gives a glimpse of the scriptural view of our eternity in Christ and the non-importance of our temporal lives here in the "shadow-lands." The last few chapters I needed a tissue to catch the trail of tears that coursed down my face...the awe and beauty of service to God, and the reality of the shortness of life in the here and now. This book is a gentle reminder as to what really matters in the life of a Christian believer and what our focus should be in this very fallen world.. This is a beautiful and haunting view of God's perspective on suffering and is an encouraging reminder that suffering will not be forever. I bought extra for gifts and believe I will be back for more....not a quick read, but an important one.

  • I read this Book the first time probably 15 years ago, but decided to read it again after hearing Randy Alcorn speak on April 2, 2016 in Dallas, TX. So many times Christian books and Christians can be so disappointing, But as I listened to Mr. Alcorn speak I knew he was "for real". His books, though fiction, are true to the word of God. Oh that I could be so real ... He makes me want to "real", to be like his Li Quan. If you read this book, you will never forget Li Quan. You will never forget this book, and you will always remember the author who could put such words, such thoughts, such lives on paper. You will long to read his books again as I have reread so many of his books ... but this is the best. It was a privilege to hear Mr Alcorn speak and a privilege to be able to read "Safely Home" again.

  • This is a great and intriguing story about China, the persecution of some of the Chinese Christians there and how we in the West have turned a blind eye to human rights violations. Yet God is still in control and works the awful stuff out for the greatest good. I loved the Chinese proverbs that were scattered throughout the story. Randy Alcorn did a really good job on this book.

  • Safely Home is a profound and brilliant novel about the plight of Christians in the house churches in China. The story revolves around an American executive and his Chinese college roommate – twenty years after they have graduated from Harvard. Woven throughout are delightful Chinese proverbs, intense meaningful conversations between the two roommates, the truth of the Bible, and many trials and adventures. The book gives insights into various Chinese eras and subjects including Buddhism, the Dali Lama, Mao, the Boxer rebellion, and Tiananmen Square. The corruption of people in power and the blind collusion of big business are vividly shown. Safely Home beautifully depicts the humble acceptance of suffering for Christ. The ending gives a thrilling view of the doorway to heaven

  • I really enjoyed the story line of this book and that the incidents in the story are based on real life events though maybe not all having happened to one person. The turn around of the character Ben was wonderful to watch unfold. It was a real eye opener to see the shroud covering the true merciless and inhumane persecution of Christians in China and in the 21st Century!!! Right after reading this book I was made aware of even more overt Muslim persecution of Christians in Indonesia!!! It is really too bad that mainstream medias do not report on these incredibly offensive tortures and murders that are going on around the world! This book really brings the issue to the forefront. Maybe if more people were aware there might be more action taken world wide against such abuse. I gave the book only four stars because I was not particularly fond of all the scenes from heaven and the extensive Bible quotes (didn't know which Bible the book was using). Though the element of Christianity, devotion, sacrifice, and healing was key to this story, I thought the infusion of the Bible verses and commentary from heaven's inhabitants was a little too much. If that is your thing than disregard this criticism... you will love it!!!

  • love this book. I have read this more than once and it always makes me think about reality and how what we see is just a small part of what is really going on. May God use this book to encourage people to coinsider the big picture, to know that Jesus is alive and how much He loves us. Also that believers will be reminded to share the good news of the gospel and to not be ashamed because we have nothing to be ashamed of. This is very well written. Though it is a book of fiction it has many truths in it. It will make you think.
