Publisher's Summary

Here is a soul-stirring story of two college friends who reconnect after 20 years. One is living life apart from God, in comfortable corporate America; the other is living for Christ under intense persecution in China. This challenging book will convince readers to live in the light of eternity.

    "Will this be the day that I die?"

    This book is excellent, and like all excellent books it is worth listening to, or reading, again. The narrator, or narrators, do an excellent job with different voices for the characters. This book left me with two major impressions:

    One was the importance of laying up treasures in heaven instead of worrying about earthly treasures. The other impression this book left me with was the possiblity that if I die of a heart attack, cancer, accident, etc. that I might actually question God, why I was not so fortunate as to have the opportunity to be be put to death for my faith in Him.

    I thought this book was purely fiction, but my minister said that it is based on a true story.

    This is among the best books I have ever listened to or read - it does a superb job of showing how to live our earthly life with an eternal perspective.

    "Think about it!"

    Honey do you know where the remote control is?...we live a pampered life. Our concerns are often inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. Safely home provides a window through which you can see circumstances from a different perspective, one that will let you vicariously experience a life with a different foundation.

    "Challenging and Powerful"

    This fictional book intertwining the lives of an American businessman and his old college roommate in China is a powerful story that will challenge the status quo of American materialism and Christianity. It leaves the Christian reader with a hunger, yearning, and exciting for our true home.

    "My favorite book"

    This is one of the most meaningful books I have ever read. It is inspiring and challenging. I have actually offered $20 to any student in our school who would read it and meet with me to discuss it. It was used to encourage one couple to go to China to serve in missionary endeavor.

    "Safely Home"

    This story starts off slow and then captivates you with moral twists and turns. You really get a feel for the perscuted Christians in China.

    Alcorn does a great job of weaving in truths and apologetic and chinese Chistian proverbs.
    My favorite proverb in the the book is: " Real gold fears no fire."

    Set back and step into the lives of to college friends that impact each other in very different ways and differently at various seasons of their lives.

    "Eye Opener"

    I loved this story. So many people dying for what and who they believe in. It makes me realize the freedoms that we have and the things we take for granted.

    "EXCELLENT!!!!"

    We loved this book! Randy Alcorn draws you into the story and does an incredible job of portraying life and persecution in China. The narrator is superb. Our only criticism of the narration is sometimes his voice gets so soft when doing the voice of the Chinese character that it is hard to understand him (we were listening in the car and "road sounds" interfered). The narrator's ability to do accents is amazing. We highly recommend this book!

    "Amazing, unforgettable, incredibly convicting!"
    Where does Safely Home rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The best by a long shot! I am very unworthy to write a review. This book should be required reading for all Christians.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Li Twon


    Have you listened to any of Steve Sever’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Never heard him. I got so lost in the story that I completely forgot about his performance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope many, many Christians read/listen to Safely Home by Randy Alcorn,.
