 10,000

Dr. Hyun Sook Foley tells the real-life “hero’s journeys” of ten North Korean Christians.

She shares how they learned to give up their “victims’ stories” and become victors in Christ, by coming to understand how Christ tells the story of their lives.

This book is the product of coaching traumatized North Koreans to narrate their life stories using a different frame than the ones they learned in North Korea or South Korea. That different frame is Joseph Campbell’s “hero’s journey” as analyzed in The Hero with a Thousand Faces. Campbell believed this twelve-stage backstory would be seen behind the stories of heroes in literally every culture in the world.

Description

Dr. Hyun Sook Foley tells the real-life “hero’s journeys” of ten North Korean Christians. She shares how they learned to give up their “victims’ stories” and become victors in Christ, by coming to understand how Christ tells the story of their lives.

As North Koreans grow up, they have to memorize more than one hundred stories about Kim Il Sung’s life. Kim Il Sung is the hero of nearly every North Korean’s story. But when North Koreans escape their country, they learn that Kim Il Sung was no hero. They struggle to make sense of life. They quickly accept the stories that others tell them: That they are victims, or even traitors.

This book is the product of coaching traumatized North Koreans to narrate their life stories using a different frame than the ones they learned in North Korea or South Korea. That different frame is Joseph Campbell’s “hero’s journey” as analyzed in The Hero with a Thousand Faces. Campbell believed this twelve-stage backstory would be seen behind the stories of heroes in literally every culture in the world.

With surprisingly little outside coaching, life change became possible for these North Koreans because they changed the way they told, thought about, and lived their stories. In very much the same way, each reader of this book can re-learn the way they tell their own stories.
