Kurzbeschreibung

Lay still pretend you are dead, Young Soon told her trembling young son as she lay, bleeding, on the ground, and nestling her nursing baby closer.

How could the daily messages blaring from the loud speakers be wrong? Loyal communists believe government announcements that North Korea is the only country prospering, as the rest of the world is depressed and starving. Was it all a lie?

After reading a smuggled newspaper article about life beyond North Korea, widowed and pregnant Young Soon is determined to flee her beloved country with her son and baby to find food and safety in neighboring China...across the river.

Near the riverbank and above the guardhouse looms a great red dragon. Its tail sweeps back and forth across the river and smaller evil-looking creatures scurry beneath it. Far above the red dragon, Heaven s warriors, dressed in white, charge courageously. The dragon seems distracted, but not defeated. What s to become of Young Soon and her children?

Miles away in China, Mei Lin has a heart-pounding dream about a baby crying out to her from murky waters. Who is this baby? How will she find him?

I ll Cross the River is a true-to-life novel that depicts the incredible human tragedy occurring today inside North Korea. The prayers of many bring two families together in a story you will never forget.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Red Thread of Hope 13. Juli 2008
Von Stephen Garner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
An old Chinese proverb states, "An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. The thread may stretch, or tangle, but never break." In I'll Cross the River, the need of a North Korean refugee, named Young Soon, meets the courage of a Chinese missionary/evangelist, named Mei Lin, in a collision of grace orchestrated by a sovereign, loving God. It is the story of two strangers, who never actually meet, but whose lives are bound together by this red thread of hope.

This red thread concept fascinated me because I had learned several years earlier that one of the Hebrew words which translated as "hope" in the Bible is tiqvah. Tiqvah finds its origins in the verb qavah meaning "to wait for" or "to look hopefully" in a particular direction. This verb's original meaning was to "stretch like a rope." The word tiqvah is found in Scripture 33 times, and in Joshua 2:18, 21, it is translated as "line" or "cord." You will recall that prior to the "attack" on Jericho, Joshua sent two spies into the city. Rahab hid them and helped them escape from the city by letting them down the outer wall by rope (Joshua 2:15). She asked them to spare her family when they conquered this great walled city. The spies told her they would, and instructed her to tie a scarlet tiqvah (rope or cord) in the window where she had let them down. If she brought her family into her home, and had this scarlet rope hanging from the window they would be saved. In much the same way, the red thread saves Young Soon's family. The scarlet rope of hope is symbolic of the redemptive work of Christ that saves us. It is interesting that Joshua's name means "God saves," (just as Jesus' does) and Rahab is one of Jesus' ancestors. There is something about this whole red thread concept which transcends cultures.

I'll Cross the River is based on actual accounts from North Korean defectors. It will educate you as to the human misery to which the world has, to this point, turned a blind eye. This is a people who are starving for food and for truth. Your heart will be pierced as you hear the story of the suffering and deception of the North Korean people. The lack of action on the part of the United State in response to this situation will agitate you. But at the same time it will motivate you to do something about it.

It made me want to arm the angel armies with my prayers. It made me want to equip the missionaries with God's Word. It made me want to go - to do what I can, where I can, when I can, under the prompting of the Holy Spirit, and in His power. This is not a feel- good summer read. This is a clarion call to arms in spiritual warfare for the country of North Korea.

Hope - just like the author's middle name, is at the heart of this moving story. Once you read this book, your life will be forever bound to this people by this same red thread - a thread of hope in our Savior, Jesus Christ.

5.0 von 5 Sternen None 18. Oktober 2013
Von Judith Prindle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
For the sceptic about the religious persecution in China it is all too true.
Faith healing is indeed possible as portrayed in this book, I have experienced this with my daughter. I think we have become too inundated with the junk that fills modern life to experience more miracles than we do.
Now, for actual content this book is both moving and exciting.
Give us more, Hope!

Von a customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I was very captured by "I'll Cross the River." It was hard to put down and I don't normally read alot of fiction books but this book was so chocked full of the hard truth of the plight of many of the dear North Koreans residents. It spurred me to pray for them.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must Read 6. Dezember 2010
Von Cleo J. Sippel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a true-to-life story that is well-written and captivating, hard to put down. We hear bits of how hard life is in North Korea, but I didn't put faces and hearts to it until I read this book. Now I am more aware and concerned for the people there. And I know there is hope for them.
