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-infamous massacre Tiananmen Square.
Larry Lewis, MM, with a doctorate in spirituality from Duquesne, is rector of seminarians at Maryknoll. He is in demand internationally as a speaker and spiritual director.
