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. The reader is swept into a world where being a Christian is not only a deadly choice but a chance to live as Jesus lived. I could not put the book down and find it to be the BEST book I've read this year. It is a must read for anyone who believes that being a believer in Jesus is more than just Sunday morning service, it's being passionate about ensuring that everyone makes it Safely Home to the arms of Jesus. A must read!

Safely Home is by far the greatest and most inspirational christian novel I have ever read. The christian examples portrayed in the book make me step back and consider how much God has blessed me with. It is truely humbling.

Ben Fielding, former college roommate to Li Chuan, presses on in his busy life, forgetting his promise to pray for his roommate after he returns to China, forgetting the God he thought he followed. Ben's goals are to be CEO of his company. When the company gives him an assignment of living in China for a while with Li Chuan, things all begin to change. Things are not as he thought in successful China, or in the life of his old roommate. Poverty and suffering seem to be the lot of Li Chuan. Yet there is something that Chuan has that Ben has never tasted. Something strong and free and happy.
And from heaven, the Watchers see and await the perfect judgment of the King.
A terribly, wonderfully eye-opening book on the reality of martyrs in China, and the joy they find in Jesus.
The only things I didn't particularly like were the women preachers and the speculation on heaven. And yet it is interesting and inspiring to think about what heaven may be like, and the joy awaiting us, whether everything is quite as the author imagines, or not.

This book will challenge you.
Although this is a work of fiction, it makes you realize how blessed and easy you have it. This book will be difficult to keep reading and even harder to put down!
