Book Review: Out Of A Far Country

Out Of A Far Country by Christopher Yuan & Angela Yuan makes you really think.  It is the true story, told by both mother and son, of Christopher's journey from a destructive life of homosexuality and drugs to his redemption and life now as a follower of Christ.  It is raw and sometimes extremely painful to read (no holds barred).  It also highlights Angela's journey toward following Christ and learning to let go as a mother and trust that God is in control, even of her family.  By the end of the book, both mother and son are extremely different people.  This book offers a lot of hope for those struggling with homosexuality or those wanting to minister to the gay community.

Included in the back of the book is a discussion guide for personal reflection and group use.  I personally did not go through this study.

Disclosure: I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
