"Makes a distinctive contribution by bringing together such breadth of material in a single volume. It takes up topics ranging from numerous personal narratives, to Scriptural, theological, political, sociological, historical materials, to intriguing ans powerful images, to the more typical explanations of the prevalent systems that migrants must negotiate or circumvent. It also helpfully offers some proposals for how to practically rethink and revise these systems."
Timely and invaluable.
For its global outlook and because it crosses gender boundaries that routinely foster inequality and violence, the book will find a place in graduate seminars and seminary instruction, but it would make a fine gift to policy makers as well.
This book offers much-needed commentary on one of the largest crises in our world today.... It offers a broad array of topics and considers the specific experiences of many different groups. It also examines important theological themes such as solidarity, theological anthropology, political engagement, and human dignity. As our world continues to grapple with questions of migration, the insights provided here will no doubt continue to prove exceptionally useful.
A welcome addition to any academic or parish library. Additionally, it could also form a valuable resource for Catholic parish,school, college, or university committees seeking to educate their constituencies as they sponsor refugees or ease the transition of other migrants into their local communities. Combined with the more general insights this book offers about identity, belonging, and trauma, [the book] could further be upheld as a resource to inform community peace building. It also offers more macro-level insights that, when taken seriously, hold the potential to transform policy and law on migration and borders so as to better foster world peace.
