Surrounded by the moral relativity of American society…how does an idealistic young Communist find his way?
China’s ruling party has begun opening up and has sent some of its brightest youth to study in America. Chang Min Yi, an idealistic Communist, has come to Boston University to earn a doctorate in economics, thinking to defeat his decadent western economic rival in his own marketplace. But America doesn’t conform to his preconceived notions. Strangest of all are the Christians and the unusual faith that guides their lives. The Million Mile Journey of Chang Min Yi tells of the spiritual journey of a sincere young man who wasn’t even searching for the answers to life’s most important questions. But then God called him…long distance.

Since that time, he has served his own church as a teacher of children, youth, and adults, and for the last decade, he has coordinated his church’s outreach to the elderly. His varied writing is a forty-five-year collection of correspondence, poetry, Bible studies, and the curriculum for a drug and alcohol program that he conducted for eight years. He has edited and ghostwritten several books, but he Million Mile Journey is his first novel.
