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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Dont Miss This - Top Tier"
    What did you love best about Safely Home?

    The speakers were right on and professional with great nuance and interpretation. Coupled with the music overlay, it was a great experience.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Safely Home?

    The impact of the storyline and the depth of character development provided a strong ending which is memorable and satisfying.


    Which character – as performed by Steve Sever – was your favorite?

    Ben came across as real, fierce, and in trauma a formidable business man who struggles more with himself than circumstances he finds himself in as he seeks value in life.


    If you could take any character from Safely Home out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Ming - a man with deep convictions and profound history of Christianity. There will be a great host of men and women like this who suffered, quietly and now rejoices loudly in heaven.


    Any additional comments?

    Great job on all fronts, story, characters, voices, and music. Thanks for the good experience.

    I'm blessed beyond words with this story. The power of prayer and the love our Heavenly Father has for those who make their need of Him known.
