Product Description

Dr. Jeung spent over two decades in assisting refugees to resettle in the United States, but he came to realize that he, too, was an exile. And this exilic identity, as a "stranger and foreigner," provides wisdom and hope for all Christians engaging in the major societal issues of our day: mass displacement and poverty, racism, and persistent inequality. At Home in Exile will help you see how living in exile will transform your faith.

Publisher's Description

Russell Jeung’s spiritual memoir shares the joyful and occasionally harrowing stories of his life in East Oakland’s Murder Dubs neighborhood—including battling drug dealers who threatened him, exorcising a spirit possessing a teen, and winning a landmark housing settlement against slumlords with 200 of his closest Cambodian and Latino friends.

 

More poignantly, At Home in Exile weaves in narratives of longing and belonging as Jeung retraces the steps of his Chinese-Hakka family and his refugee neighbors. In the face of forced relocation and institutional discrimination, his family and friends resisted time and time again over six generations.

 

With humor and keen insight, At Home in Exile will help you see how living in exile will transform your faith.
