Review:
Originally published 2001
Ben Fielding and Li Quan meet at Harvard when Quan manages to get to America to attend the University. They become room mates and firm friends, and Ben reintroduces Quan to Christianity, Quan having been raised a Christian but having turned from the faith through feelings of inadequacy. As the years go by they lose contact, but the company with which Ben is a senior manager wishes to increase its production output and sales in China, so Ben offers to go to China to stay with his old friend and to research the local market. They meet again but Quan's role in life is not as Ben expected, and Quan is disappointed that Ben has lost his faith. Not just a fast paced, almost thriller style story, but also an examination of the ups and downs of belief, evangelism, the social and political situation in modern China, and the horrifying persecution of Chinese Christians not known about by the majority in the West. A timely new edition when the world frequently hears about the ‘rise of China’ and how it out performs Western economies.
