Format: Paperback

Quick Overview:

This book traces Dr. Jeung’s remarkable life and ministry among the poor in the slums of East Oakland. Despite their impoverished conditions, Jeung and the community discovered the Kingdom of God in new and powerful ways, as well as how Jesus speaks to Christian exiles.

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.
