The best by a long shot! I am very unworthy to write a review. This book should be required reading for all Christians.
Never heard him. I got so lost in the story that I completely forgot about his performance.
No way I could say "a moment" in this book particularly moved me. I was moved all the way through, especially when the story was focusing on Li Twon. I think when the Chinese police bombarded the home church and Li Twon's family was forced to choose their belief and faith in God over the Chinese law. Li Twon gave his little son a choice to choose his life versus dying right there if he walked away from God. This was especially moving. I figured out how to cry without getting mascara in my eyes and burning while I read this as I was in tears most of the time throughout.
I hope many, many Christians read/listen to Safely Home by Randy Alcorn,.
I loved the fact that it is so close to reality. It made me want to listen all the time to see what happened next.
This story could have been true and probably in all reality is a true story. I know about the underground church and this book brought more to light. I felt like the characters were real.
I thought he was a fine reader.
I was moved to the edge of my seat when the police broke in during the secret house meeting. People were made to choose if they would stay or go. Only the devoted disciples of Jesus Christ stayed. The story really changed after that. I was taken off guard.
This book was very well written and it was easy to get to know the characters. I highly recommend it.
I AM LEGALLY BLIND AND ENJOY LISTENING TO STORIES OF FAITH, HISTORICAL CHRISTIAN NOVELS, AND BOOKS WITHOUT SWEARING ESP. USING GODS NAME
INFORMATIVE - INTERESTING - HEART WRENCHING
THE DEATH OF THE HERO
LEE CHUNG - THE MAIN CHARACTER
THE DEATH OF THE HERO
ALTHOUGH THIS IS FICTION, IT IS STILL AN EYE OPENER TO THE CONDITION OF PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS AROUND THE WORL.
Yes, I already have listened to it twice. Second time with my wife. There are so many quotable lines in the book, that I wanted to hear them again. Also, I often find that by listening again, I gain even more.
Li Quan for sure. His unwavering faith yet honest fears was so winsome.
Even though not every voice was masterful, it was amazing how many voices he did well, and it helped make the story more exciting than if I had just read it alone.
I plan to listen to Alcorn's other novels as well.
It was written in a very Bible believing perspective. The Christian life is not easy, but a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus can make anyone in this world a conquerer!

I'll probably hear this again just for encouragement.
No I think the accents served to make the audible version very real to me
Chen of course!
Real gold fears no fire
If you don't get convicted about how little we share our own faith or risk our own reputations here in America for the cause of Christ it will be a miracle!
This book DID rivet me to my seat. I should have been more social with the people I was driving for a 5 hour trip, but once I started listening to this book, I couldn't. I became "one" with this story. And now, with the news of Chen Guangcheng, blind Chinese activist, who is revealing the truth about forced abortions and deaths in China, it makes it even more timely. Religious freedom is something the west takes for granted. This book makes that pretty clear what can happen when those freedoms are gone.
Probably because of the creativity of the reader as he portrayed the characters. I probably wouldn't do that quietly in my brain as I read! Plus, I am an extremely busy person who likes to have books "on the go" to accommodate my multi-tasking lifestyle.
No... I'd be interested to though:)
When the main character arrived in heaven and all the dots were connected for him.
Thank you for making this excellent book available on audio!
Also, thank you to Randy Alcorn for a wonderful story!
I think I would enjoy either one, because this is such a good book. The narrator in the audio was very expressive and did a great job of making you feel like you were there.
I have read this book once or twice before and now had the pleasure of listening to it also. Randy Alcorn fictional books are never dissapointing.
When Ben finds his freind in the work factory doing slave labor.
Thats easy, when the
I have never read a dissapointing Randy Alcorn book, but this (along with Francine Rivers Redeaming Love) have been my favorites for years now. It makes me ashamed for what I don't do to help change the terrible suffering in the world. But time after time you see true Christianity thrive when there is persacution. This book portreys very nicely that to really love Jesus is to be totally sold out to Him.
