It is challenging because this is a man, a scholar, who has been around for a long time and it seems like he has used this time to reflect mightily upon the Faith. One can see this in the depth of illustrations he uses in support of his main points. After twenty-five years at Oxford University as a student and then a tutor, Houston uprooted his wife and four teenagers to become the founding principal of Regent College in Vancouver. That was thirty-five years ago.

Exile has certainly been part of my family's narrative," writes James Houston.

Though we are joyful exiles, we do not take joy in sharing this sad history. For us, this became an essential for any future commitment to a church. And, our first Sunday at Mars Hill, there on the book table was a copy of Strauch’s book

Though we are joyful exiles, we do not take joy in sharing this sad history.
