Back of the book:
Executive Ben Fielding hits upon a perfect plan: he will make his company millions of dollars by using Chinese labor to manufacture its electronic components. To kickstart his plan, he visits China, where he stays with college roommate Li Quan, whom he hasn't seen in over 20 years. From Li, Ben learns that his initial impressions of China from his research and from visits over the years are false, but Ben doesn't believe Li's stories of the persecution of Christians until Li is taken to jail. As Ben rediscovers Jesus through Li's faith, he discovers the truth that God does not promise an easy life on Earth, only eternal happiness after death. Part of this novel appeared as a short story in The Storytellers' Collection (LJ 9/1/00); here, its strength is magnified tenfold. Alcorn (Lord Foulgrin's Letters) lifts readers high with joy and casts them down in immeasurable sorrow as Ben and Li's story unfolds with intense emotional impact that recalls Sylvia Bambola's Refiner's Fire (LJ 6/1/00). Required for all collections.
Saely Home by Randy Alcorn is a book about two friends, Li Quan and Ben Fielding. The book is about Li Quan received a scholarship to Harvard and is roommates with Ben. While they were at Harvard, they both became great friends, but once Li returned to China, they drifted apart.
20 years later, Ben is visiting China on a business trip and visits Li's house and reconnects with him. In the book you find out that Li Quan is part of an underground church in China nad Ben's eyes opens up to become a believer.
This is a very good story and this book I will share with my friends and family. I really enjoyed reading this book as I found it a good story to read. I could not put this book down and I am sure once you read this book, you will say the same thing.
