How Much of the Persecution Portrayed in Safely Home Is Based on Truth?

Question from a Reader:

I’m reading Safely Home. How much of the persecution in the book is based on truth?

Answer by Randy Alcorn:

Li Quan is a fictional character, but most stories in the book are true. I learned them through research and in interviews, including in China.

Years ago a missionary in China wrote me, "Safely Home was very, very accurate." She knows a Chinese woman who couldn’t read it because it reminds her of close friends suffering persecution.

Here’s more about persecution in China. And here’s an update I shared on my blog.
