New Book for Expatriates

I am pleased to announce the publication of Singing the Lord’s Songs in a Foreign land; Biblical Reflections for Expatriates, a book designed to assist and encourage people who live overseas.

Up to five million Americans live abroad–and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Expats include: Students, educators, missionaries, Diplomats, peace corps volunteers, members of the military and a host of others.

Each faces the challenges of: living in another culture, learning a sometimes difficult language, feeling homesick, experiencing grief at the loss of what is familiar, asking God why He seems to have taken them so far away and why life is so difficult. Having served as the pastor or interim pastor of seven English-language international churches in five countries, I have seen expats who thrive in a foreign environment and others who have struggled with culture shock and other similar issues.

The Bible speaks to these and other emotions: “How can we sing the songs of the Lord while in a foreign land?” Psalm 137:4 expresses that lament of so many who have left their home country. Yet, the psalmist also affirms “If I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.” (Psalm 139: 9-10).

In Singing The Lord’s Songs in a Foreign Land, Biblical Reflections for Expatriates those living abroad will find biblical reflections offering insight into those struggles and encouragement while living in a foreign land.
