Welcoming the Stranger: Justice, Compassion & Truth in the Immigration Debate
By Matthew Soerens, Jenny Hwang
Immigration is one of the most complicated issues of our time. Voices on all sides argue strongly for action and change. Christians find themselves torn between the desire to uphold laws and the call to minister to the vulnerable. In this book World Relief staffers Matthew Soerens and Jenny Hwang move beyond the rhetoric to offer a Christian response to immigration. With careful historical understanding and thoughtful policy analysis, they debunk myths and misconceptions about immigration and show the limitations of the current immigration system. Ultimately they point toward immigration reform that is compassionate, sensible and just, as they offer concrete ways for you and your church to welcome and minister to your immigrant neighbors.
Coauthored by G92 cofounder Matthew Soerens, we hope you’ll find this book to be a helpful primer to the immigration issue from an evangelical Christian perspective. Included are chapters on Scripture, the Church, immigration law, history, economics, politics, and more.
