Will this be the day that I die?
This book is excellent, and like all excellent books it is worth listening to, or reading, again. The narrator, or narrators, do an excellent job with different voices for the characters. This book left me with two major impressions:
One was the importance of laying up treasures in heaven instead of worrying about earthly treasures. The other impression this book left me with was the possiblity that if I die of a heart attack, cancer, accident, etc. that I might actually question God, why I was not so fortunate as to have the opportunity to be be put to death for my faith in Him.
I thought this book was purely fiction, but my minister said that it is based on a true story.
This is among the best books I have ever listened to or read - it does a superb job of showing how to live our earthly life with an eternal perspective.

Challenging and Powerful
This fictional book intertwining the lives of an American businessman and his old college roommate in China is a powerful story that will challenge the status quo of American materialism and Christianity. It leaves the Christian reader with a hunger, yearning, and exciting for our true home.
