This fiction read almost like a real-life account. Its descriptions of the life of house-group Christians in China were moving, fascinating and sometimes traumatic. It was interesting to read about how the registered churches work. The story moves back and forth between China and America- a technique which really helps the reader to focus on what it means to be a Christian and a believer in Jesus. I felt the sections in heaven were unneccesary and cringed at the way Buddhism was portrayed, but overall this was a very good book. I felt that it really helped to renew my faith!
