Reunited after 20 years, both men face decisions that will determine their destinies---and the fates of their nations and the world. Read by Steve Sever. 7.5 hours. 6 CDs.
American business executive Ben Fielding has no idea what his brilliant old college roommate is facing in China. But when they're reunited in China after twenty years, the men are shocked at what they discover about each other. 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.
While a fictional story, this is not art for arts sake. Theres a strong message in this story of an American businessman who has lost his Christian faith. He travels to China, where he meets his college roommate, who is practicing Christianity in the midst of persecution. The persecution leads the American back to his faith. Steve Severs presentation of the Chinese voice is quite good; he captures the speech pattern of someone whose native language is Chinese. His deep voice is always clear and strong. However, this is the voice of a professional radio announcer, not the voice of a storyteller. And the voices from heaven are a bit hokey.
