In looking back at some of my past posts, even though I’ve featured this book several times, it doesn’t look like I’ve featured it for Memorable Monday yet. So allow me to fix that and say with as much enthusiasm as is physically possible that this book is an absolute MUST-READ!! Randy Alcorn is one of those authors that you don’t merely read what he writes, but you experience it. This book challenged and encouraged my faith in ways no other Christian Fiction book has. While Christianity may be protested in America today, we don’t have to live in fear for our lives if we say the name of Jesus in public. Safely Home is a glimpse at what life is like for Christians on the other side of the globe, and how even in the face of persecution the Word of God cannot be silenced. If you haven’t read this book yet you need to remedy that immediately. You won’t regret it!!
About the Book:
2002 Gold Medallion Award winner! Fans of Randy Alcorn will applaud this soul-stirring story of two college friends who reconnect after twenty years. One is living life apart from God in comfortable corporate America while the other is living for Christ under intense persecution in China. This stunning page-turner will convict the hearts of readers to live in the light of eternity. Royalties from sales of this book will be donated to support the persecuted Church.
About the Author:
Randy Alcorn is the founder of Eternal Perspective Ministries (EPM), a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching biblical truth and drawing attention to the needy and how to help them. EPM exists to meet the needs of the unreached, unfed, unborn, uneducated, unreconciled and unsupported people around the world.
“My ministry focus is communicating the strategic importance of using our earthly time, money, possessions and opportunities to invest in need-meeting ministries that count for eternity,” Alcorn says. “I do that by trying to analyze, teach and apply the implications of Christian truth.”
Before starting EPM in 1990, Alcorn co-pastored for thirteen years Good Shepherd Community Church outside Gresham, Oregon. He has ministered in many countries, including China, and is a popular teacher and conference speaker. Randy has taught on the part-time faculties of Western Seminary and Multnomah University, both in Portland, Oregon.
Randy is a best-selling author of 50 books including Heaven, The Treasure Principle and the 2002 Gold Medallion winner, Safely Home. He has written numerous articles for magazines such as Discipleship Journal, Moody, Leadership, New Man, and The Christian Reader. He produces the quarterly issues-oriented magazine Eternal Perspectives, and has been a guest on more than 650 radio and television programs including Focus on the Family, Family Life Today, The Bible Answer Man, Revive Our Hearts, Truths that Transform and Faith Under Fire.
Alcorn resides in Gresham, Oregon with his wife, Nanci. The Alcorns have two married daughters, Karina and Angela.
Randy and Nanci are the proud grandparents of five grandsons. Randy enjoys hanging out with his family, biking, tennis, research and reading.
Sounds like an intense book! I’ll have to check it out. 😀
