Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Best from James Martin  Dec 10, 2008
I have read just about everything Father Martin has written, and this remains my favorite. It is funny and yet speaks to how we can all become more humble.
Excellent Writing, Moving Stories  Jan 7, 2007
This is one of James Martin's earlier works and what a wonderful presentation of a lived experience in East Africa working with refugees. Martin takes the reader along for a front-seat journey through his experience of a two-year formation internship in Kenya. Filled with true stories of the people he journeyed with, your heart will be touched by the relationships Martin formed over the course of his stay.

Not knowing much of the situation of East African refugees (in the 1990s), I found this book educational in addition to the spiritual focus that comes forth naturally in such a work.

This is just an all around great book from the excellent and engaging writing style of Martin to the retelling of the journey walking with refugees in Africa; read this book.
This is Our Exile  Jun 7, 2003
Father Martin has written a very good book. The strength of the book lies in the way that the refugee's stories are presented. Father Martin does not parade their hardships and poverty before us in an attempt to provoke our sympathy or guilt. Rather, Father Martin presents us with real people who love and live. We come to know the people in the book as people, no different in their humanity than you or I. On the surface, this is no great insight, but I think we tend to objectify the exiles of the world in order to keep our distance from them. Father Martin does not let us do this. We come to know and care about the people in this book very deeply. Of course, this opens us up, as readers, to a deeper sorrow and (hopefully) a deeper understanding of how too many people live. But it also opens us up to a greater experience of God and how God works in the world. This book is a slim volume and easily read, but the spirutual insights are deep and meaningful. This book should be read by all of the idle and self-involved inhabitants of the "first world." You will never be able to look at a disposable plastic cup in the same way again.
What an amazing book!  Jan 7, 2002
I'm planning on going on a missions trip to Kenya this summer, so I was really searching for a book that would give me insight on the people of that region, not just the normal tourist information. This book blew away all my expectations. Not only did I meet the refugees through James Martins engaging narratives, I also felt like I knew them and could really identify with their hardships. The stories grew depressing at times, but such is life in East Africa, and that fact only made their faith and hope more amazing and inspiring. Martin was often humorous and candid, and I felt myself trying to cheer him along on his journeys as if I was right there with him.
This our Exile is a good read for anyone interested in East Africa and it's people who are often ignored and under represented. 2 giant thumbs up.
Touching, funny, real, inspirational--a gem of a book!  Apr 4, 1999
In this engaging book, a young Jesuit recounts the trials, tribulations and rewards of his two-year stint among the refugees of East Africa. He describes in vivid detail true-life vignettes of strength and hope in the midst of grinding poverty. But this book is far from somber--rather, it's full of laugh-out-loud humor combined with an evident love of the author's fellow man. A great book!!
