Boda Past President of Canadian Bible College / Canadian Theological Seminary Continuing the story of Red Runs the River, Exiles of Hope illuminates the explosive growth of the church in China following the Communist takeover in 1949 through the lives of two young people. Despite the deeply emotional struggle of Anching and Meiling, who were forcibly separated from each other by the rigors of civil war and political upheaval, it is nonetheless a story of hope. Undaunted by persecution and suffering and against all odds of ever finding each other again, they steadfastly trust in the promises of God. It is the story of the high cost of discipleship and choosing to love God above all else, and about two young people who cannot forget the love they once shared.

Review 1 for Exiles of Hope: The Story of China's Persecuted Church, Vol 2
“Exiles of Hope” is a composite of stories of China’s persecuted church. Anthony G. Bollback, a former missionary to China, is well acquainted with the sacrifice of millions of members of the persecuted church, who daily risk harassment, imprisonment, or martyrdom for the cause of Christ.
This is the second book in “The Story of China’s Persecuted Church” and continues the account of Meiling and Anching, a story based on true accounts of believers who lived through the persecution of the church in China during the years 1949 to 1985 under Communism subjugation. These are unique, authentic, and verifiable accounts filled with examples of ordinary people living lives which demonstrate an extraordinary faith.
Bollback’s writing is gripping and disturbing, boldly expressing a clarion call to Christians in the Western world to intercession, to awaken others to the realty of the persecution faced by our brothers and sisters in China, and to influence others in leadership who can impact change.
“Exiles in Hope” is carefully developed, well paced, circumspect, and thoroughly researched. Anthony Bollback delivers a powerful message. Dynamic writing.
