I had the opportunity to review Son of the Underground which is the story of a young man growing up as a Christian in communist China. Many there live with a “sword above their head” – meaning they could die or have things taken away. It gives a good idea of Chrisitianity within China.
Eventually his dad escaped China but he was a preacher and spent much time in prison. The rest of the family finally escapes too – this book tells of that too.
Overall I really enjoyed the book. My only hesitation is not being clear as to his total beliefs as it mentions “baptizing people into heaven” so not sure how he views salvation.
