Safely Home
by Randy Alcorn | Genre: Fiction
Release Date: April 1999
 

Is this the day I die?

Li Quan's father had taught him from childhood to ask this question every day. He told young Quan, "one day the answer will be yes, and on that day you must be ready."
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 woman"and child"who does not declare himself loyal to the people rather than the gweilos, foreign devils.

"Quan, Ming and Shen clasped each other's hands. Quan breathed deeply and braced himself.

"Surely this is the day."

American business executive Ben Fielding has no idea what his brilliant old college roommate is facing in China. After 20 years he expects to pick up where they left off. But when they're reunited in China, the men are shocked at what they discover about each other. The paths they've walked have shaped their lives and loyalties in radically different ways.

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.

Review:
Needless to say, Safely Home is not Randy Alcorn's best novel. However, it is not his worst. The story contrasts the life of an American businessman and a Chinese Christian under persecution. The Chinese invites the American, who is not a Christian to come visit him. The characters and the history of the two friends is well developed. However, the middle of the book in inheiritly boring, though descriptive and insightful. The best part is that it opens one's eyes to the world of persecution in China in a thourough and completely true way. As usual, Alcorn conitues his saga in heaven with an interesting twist about the end times. All in all, the book is good, but not great. 3.5 stars
