Out of a Far Country - Another Book Review

I'm reviewing a book for WaterBrook Multnomah - a publisher providing me a complementary copy through a program called Blogging For Books. The book is called Out of a Far Country: A Gay Son's Journey to God. A Broken Mother's Search for Hope, by Christopher & Angela Yuan.

I read this book - and I'm not typically one to pick up and autobiographical book - but this was really good. It was a very easy book to read in a short time and kept my attention all the way through. 
The subject matter is touchy. It's a story told from the perspectives of a mother and her son who is struggling with homosexuality. Each chapter alternates perspective.

Both parties begin their journeys with disdain toward Christianity, however Christ reaches them in surprising ways throughout the years of struggle and uncertainty.

The Yuans tell an amazing story of redemption and love. It's an inspiring story of how God can use the most unlikely circumstances to lead us to Him. There's also a lot of examples of how prayer can truly change a seemingly lost situation. My views were challenged and my walk was encouraged while I read this book. I recommend it for anyone and give it five stars.
