What is “Out of Exile” about?

When pastors respond to God’s call, most think they will save the world, but too often they end up on the backside of a desert, what the Bible refers to as “exile.” That’s not the worst thing. In many ways, exile is a rite of passage: a preparation for ministry to come. But too often pastors get stuck in exile. Rather than exile being a time of spiritual growth and intimacy with God, it becomes a time of disillusionment and despair, with no clue how to reclaim their lives or ministry. It doesn’t have to be that way.

In Out of Exile, F. Remy Diederich looks at the losses all pastors face in ministry, how the losses create a feeling of “exile,” and then shows how to return from that exile. It is set up as a 40-day devotional journey: short essays followed by questions to help you move through your time of loss to a place of restoration and renewal. If you have suffered a significant life or ministry setback this book might be what God uses to help you make a comeback. If you’ve given up hope, let God use this book to breath life back into you.

What Do Pastors Think of “Out of Exile”?

Here is one review off of

As someone who knows quite personally the pain of exile, I found this book to be exactly the gentle salve I needed. I stumbled upon Diederich’s writing quite accidentally, but it was the best accident I’ve ever experienced. His writings offered deeply biblical perspective for overcoming the ministry hurts I’d experienced, and renewed my perspective on how God might orchestrate a comeback through exile.

Let me be blunt… I hated those who had railroaded me, had just about given up on God, couldn’t imagine another day in ministry, was deeply skeptical of the local church… but God used Remy to save my soul. I forgave my offenders, forgave myself, and recalibrated. I’m back in ministry, due in large part to the writings you’ll find in this book.

Am I overstating? Not if you knew my story. Thank you, Remy, and thank you, God, for excellent writing that offers hope and perspective when ministry gets the best of you. I’m on the comeback trail.
