Product Description

Set against the tumultuous backdrop of contemporary China, Larry Lewis's autobiographical The Misfit tells a moving story of how God breaks through the aridity of human hearts, and how healing occurs in the midst of the everyday. Father Lewis, a Maryknoll missioner, was estranged from himself, his church, and his Maryknoll colleagues when he accepted an assignment to teach English to Chinese students in the interior Chinese city of Wuhan. It was a year before the now imfamous massacre in Tiananmen Square.

Publisher's Description

Lewis shows how Chinese students in Wuhan converted him from a selfish and alienated existence to an appreciation of the gift of life and the depths of meaning it affords to those who learn that to be fully human means accepting one's "misfitness".
