At once a memoir and an examination of conscience, Ellis' autobiographical starting points spark reflections on Jewish-Christian relations, liberation theology, religion and politics, and issues of justice in Israel and Palestine. His experiences also occasion meditations on solitude and solidarity, gratitude and alienation, memory and responsibilty. They exemplify how religiously committed persons, though exiled forever from yesterday's certitudes, can yet practice covenantal fidelity.

Review 1 for Practicing Exile: The Religious Odyssey of an American
Date:March 18, 2012
Read through it and found it very prejudicial and angry with out actually getting me to understand his negative life. Not sympathetic to his definite political beliefs but not much clarity, except he does not seem to like Jewish people, but the book made me uncomfortable This is not a person I want to know.
