Description
							Christopher Yuan, the son of Chinese immigrants, discovered at an early age that he was different. He was attracted to other boys. As he grew into adulthood, his mother, Angela, hoped to control the situation. Instead, she found that her son and her life were spiraling out of control - and her own personal demons were determined to defeat her. Years of heartbreak, confusion, and prayer followed before the Yuans found a place of complete surrender, which is God’s desire for all families. Their amazing story, told from the perspectives of both mother and son, offers hope for anyone affected by homosexuality.
Reviews

"Christopher & Angela Yuan have told the story of their miraculous journey from broken lives, relationships, and dreams to a place of hope and healing... brings home the living truth that in the midst of a broken and hurting world, God is at work to redeem, renew, and reconcile his beloved. " - Chuck Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship and the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview

"Out of a Far Country reads like a modern rendition of the prodigal son parable... Be prepared, for the raw emotions of both mother and son authentically mark every page. The spiritual lessons to be gained from this book are many. May it gain a vast audience!" - J. Paul Nyquist, PhD, president of Moody Bible Institute

"This is a moving account of how an Asian mother's fragile love turns into a prayerful, patient, and tenacious force of forgiveness. It is also a gripping narrative of a son’s search for belonging and meaning. Out of a Far Country breeds hope in every despairing heart." - Lisa Espineli Chinn, director of International Student Ministries for InterVarsity/USA

"The Good Shepherd knows his sheep and calls them by name. Christopher Yuan, trapped in a life of drugs and sexual addiction, heard that call and rose to follow Jesus. His and his mother's account of that rising is a profound story of redemption that all of us in this broken generation need to hear." - Duane Litfin, president emeritus of Wheaton College in Illinois

"Relevant, courageous, fascinating, and much more. I have known the Yuans for many years, and their walk is in line with their talk. This important and needed story goes against the wind, but it is one hundred percent in the right direction." - Dr. George Verwer, founder and former international director of Operation Mobilisation
