Book: Singing the Lord’s Songs in a Foreign land;

New Book
Singing the Lord’s Songs in a Foreign land; Biblical Reflections 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. It is especially appropriate for missionaries and perfect for those struggling with cultural adjustment.

As an expat you know 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 isues.
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 you will find biblical reflections offering insight into those struggles and encouragement while living in a foreign land.
In order to make this helpful book known to as many expats as possible I request your assistance in listing this announcement in your publication or posting the attached announcements on appropriate bulletin boards. Also attached is a brief announcement that can be used in a newsletter or bulletin.

The print version of this book can be ordered anywhere in the world for $8.95 at www.createspace.com/3713708
