Searching for Zion: The Quest for Home in the African Diaspora (2013) by Emily Raboteau
Raboteau takes readers around the
world on an unexpected adventure of faith. Both one woman’s quest for a
place to call “home” and an investigation into a people’s search for the
Promised Land, this work of creative nonfiction is a fascinating
inquiry into contemporary and historical ethnic displacement.
