Aside from my hand there, this photo is not arranged.

My wife and I spotted this last week at a Presbyterian church rummage sale. And we had to wonder if the same Presbyterian had read and enjoyed both books.

Ah, the blissful, delicious, passionate presence of plentiful ironies:

  1. Safely Home, which I own and have read, is about an American businessman who reunites with an old friend in China. That man is now a Christian and a member of the persecuted Church. At the end (spoiler alert), Communist officials kill the man and he goes to Heaven.
  2. Master of Desire, as far as we can tell, is about a man who is a master of desire.
  3. Safely Home is not only a first-class story; it’s a bracing wake-up call about Christian persecution in China. You’ll be challenged.” — Chuck Colson
  4. “He is her hunter — and her slave …”!
  5. The other book, to the left, is something called Wurst Case Scenario.

So for those of you hoping to write The Next Great Christ-Exalting Novel: this could also someday be you.

Well, that’s variety. Who knows what will spring out at you at Presbyterian rummage sales?

I’m all for eclectiscism…but that’s just a little bit out there.
