Publisher's Summary

Christopher Yuan, the son of Chinese immigrants, discovered at an early age that he was different. He was attracted to other boys. As he grew into adulthood, his mother, Angela, hoped to control the situation. Instead she found that her son and her life were spiraling out of control - and her own personal demons were determined to defeat her.

Years of heartbreak, confusion, and prayer followed before the Yuans found a place of complete surrender, which is God's desire for all families. Their amazing story, told from the perspectives of both mother and son, offers hope for anyone affected by homosexuality.

Excellent

What a moving story of how God worked through a family to bring redemption, forgiveness, and healing. I so appreciate how Christopher gives us both the grace and truth of homosexuality.

I was able to hear Christopher speak recently at the ReThink Conference. He is as genuine in person as he is in this book.

Hope

Incredible story of God’s faithfulness & relentless pursuit of His people. I will never read “the Prodigal Son” story the same way again. Such an encouraging reminder that the Good Shepherd is always ready to welcome us home no matter how far we wander.

My thoughts

The story was great, easy to follow the characters throughout their journey; the narration was done very well and suspense kept me interested. The best thing i liked about this book was how i was able to relate to both characters in the book.

The book could have been slightly better in a few ways. First off, i wish the author made it more clear how both the mom and son turned to Christ; secondly, i wish that the author talked a bit about Christopher's brother's life; lastly, i want to point out that as i listened further into the story, it became harder for me to listen because it felt like the same thing was going on in multiple chapters, such as the constant phone conversations. Besides that, i loved the book! Thank you for writing it.

Rays of hope

I finished listening to this in 3 days because I desired strongly to. Took every opportunity possible to listen to the audio, in my living room, in the train, during my lunch time at work, on the journey back home. I plan to listen to the whole book again. This book gives rays of hope in this darkened world. May this book edify many for GOD'S GLORY. May an abundance of good seeds be planted in the hearts of all who read it. LORD prapare the ground of these hearts & lead them to paths of righteouness because ONLY YOU can. Blessings.
