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:
- 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.
- Master of Desire, as far as we can tell, is about a man who is a master of desire.
- “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
- “He is her hunter — and her slave …”!
- 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.
