Item description for The Misfit: Haunting the Human--Unveiling the Divine by Larry Lewis...

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.

Publishers 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".

Reviews - What do customers think about The Misfit: Haunting the Human-Unveiling the Divine?

I loved this book  Feb 10, 2002
Lewis' story touches you at your very core. He has a wonderful spirit and is a great gift to the human race.
A personal journey of, and for, the misfit  Jun 18, 1999
Larry Lewis takes us on a spiritual journey, a journey that began in his youth soon after the death of his grandfather and again to China, where he taught English to students at the university immediately before -- and during -- the uprising at Tiananmen. Lewis is adept at weaving his own life stories of "misfitness" and a wide array of literature into a fabric that portrays the absolute beauty of all things human. The book's peaks and valleys represent the ebb and flow of the human spirit, a rhythm of life recognition beyond any I have come across before. Reading this book, I have learned to appreciate my own human frailities and rejoyce in my "misfitness."
