I read this book for the 1st time right after it was published and on the shelves!! I loved it then, and I love it just as much now!!! Colson wrote it in one of the darkest and most memorable times of America’s history!! His transparency along with the fact he does not at all make himself appear a victim. God used this this man in one of the most important places one could choose to be a missionary. A must read, especially if you’re interested in what really goes on in D. C., as well as the spiritual battle that is constantly raging. Out of the many books I’ve read this year, Born Again is the the most captivating!

I loved this book!. I'm amazed this is Julie Kibler's first book!!. I read a lot and it is hard to find books like this that hold my attention; at least books I haven't already read!. I highly recommend this book to women who enjoy Christian novels by authors like Lynn Austin and Francine Rivers. Yes, I consider Julie Kibler an author who ranks in that circle!. I can't wait to read her next book!!!.

I do hope Randy Alcorn sees my review!!. This is my second time to listen to Deadline. I am overwhelmed with the story and message this audible book so excellently gives the reader/listener!. The performance of the narrator and the music & sound effects is better than watching the movie. I read the next one "Dominion" on Kindle because it was not offered on audible when I first found this series. Cannot wait to listen to Dominion now!!!. Randy Alcorn is my favorite Christian fiction author!!. "Safely Home" was 1st audible book of his I heard. It is an amazing book on all levels!!!

I highly recommend this book to all believers. Most of us mistakenly think religious persecution is, for the most part, no longer an issue in China. This true account by Bob Fu plainly brings to our attention that it is as cruel as ever. Politicians in high places have done a good job of enabling China to continue with their barbaric torturing of Christians and hiding facts from the public. Well written, beautifully narrated, pristinely documented facts!! Thank God for Bob Fu!! Truly, a 5 Star 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,.

Fabulous Book!

This is a real reminder of how far we have come as a country overcoming racial prejudice especially pertaining to black Americans.

A Treasure!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I discovered Audible.com and Sir Bentley on the same day. I could not stop listening. Chuck Black is a wonderful author. I can't wait to get started listening to the Kingdom series! I have never listened to an audible book. This is really a great way to experience a good book. I highly recommend this to everyone!

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Thoroughly enjoyed the narrators performances.
