"There is no denying that the plight of undocumented immigrants is one of the thorniest issues on our national landscape in 2008. It provokes very heated debates. How refreshing it is, then, to have Daniel Carroll, an author who is sympathetic to both the immigrant and the host culture, call Christians to find a fresh starting point for the debate." -Ronald J. Sider, from the Afterword
"With a foot in both cultures and a sensitivity to the arguments of all sides, Professor Carroll presents Christians at the Border to sort through the complicated and confusing immigration debate with nuance. He goes further than many studies by examining the question with a theological and biblical eye, a factor frequently ignored in what is often a shrill debate. Perspective is what such a complicated discussion requires, and that is what this book delivers. Read and learn." -Darrell Bock, research professor of New Testament studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
"Immigration issues grip American politics and opinions. But what does the Bible say? What is at the heart of the Christian view on immigration? Danny Carroll's voice on this issue is like no other. He is bilingual and bicultural; he is a Bible scholar and a committed Christian. Let him help shape your thinking and challenge your heart to be thoroughly Christian." -Leith Anderson, president, National Association of Evangelicals; pastor, Wooddale Church
"Combining prophetic zeal with a tender, pastoral tone, Professor Carroll calls on Christians to adopt a distinctively Christian disposition to the issue of undocumented immigrants and even more importantly to the people who find themselves in this situation. He argues convincingly that for Christians, the ethic of compassion and commitment to the well-being of the marginalized must take precedence over legality. If we heed his plea, immigrants will know when they encounter us that they have crossed the border into a land of distinctively gracious people." -Daniel I. Block, Gunther H. Knoedler Professor of Old Testament, Wheaton College
"Danny Carroll's goal of providing Christians with a biblical and theological framework to participate in the US immigration debate as Christians is met brilliantly in Christians at the Border. He addresses both the complexities of the issues related to migration in a globalized world--within the specific history of the United States--and the broader biblical perspective that begins with the reality that all humans are created in the image of God. Even as he acknowledges that the Bible does not give us a specific policy blueprint, he demonstrates that Scripture provides important and clear principles that allow us to address the issue from a Christian perspective. Carroll recognizes that the political debate is complex, but he challenges us to use Scripture as the basis for our response instead of the positions advocated by our political perspectives. He invites us to balance respect for US law with the need to use biblical principles to work toward a change in immigration laws. Christians at the Border provides Christians of various political perspectives a framework from which to begin a conversation together about how to address the issue of immigration in the United States." -Juan Francisco Martinez, director, Hispanic Church Studies Program, Fuller Theological Seminary
"Professor Carroll's grasp of the problems presented by immigration--political, economic, and familial--is balanced, restrained, and profound. On one level the book is a thorough presentation of the 'secular' facts, and on a deeper level those facts and problems are brought into contact with biblical and theological insight. Evangelicals will be well informed on both levels. Catholic leaders, too, with their steadily developed approach to the same problem, will find in Professor Carroll a complementary and supporting vision. The need for a specifically Christian approach, a vision of the welcoming of the stranger, is evident, and Professor Carroll supplies that need admirably. Protestants and Catholics of all political leanings need to pay attention to this book." -William M. Shea, director, Center for Religion, Ethics, and Culture, College of the Holy Cross
"This is a very well researched book. Danny Carroll R. has the kind of scholarly background in biblical studies and cultural anthropology that the subject calls for. He articulates well the facts, questions, and perspectives. He proposes answers, or at least gives suggestions, that are both compassionate and realistic, and he does so from a soundly biblical and distinctly Christian point of view. But this is not just a well-researched book. The author has both personal history and experience that make him the right person to approach the current immigration issues in a penetrating and sympathetic way. This man and his book deserve serious consideration in the current debate." -Richard E. Averbeck, professor of Old Testament and Semitic languages, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"Dr. Carroll provides a good summary of the different positions regarding immigration in the United States and helps readers discover God's heart for immigrants. Christians at the Border is a valuable resource in thinking about immigration from a Christian perspective. I highly recommend it." -Octavio J. Esqueda, assistant professor of foundations of education, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
"It is easy to look at the immigration issue through the lens of economics, national security, or even national identity. But Christ's followers are obligated to look at the issue through the lens of Scripture. As we do, we find not only that this topic is close to the heart of God but also that his laws have implications for the way we should respond today. In this biblical primer on immigration, Danny Carroll does not make policy recommendations but does provide attitude checks for believers as we enter the great immigration debate taking place in our country. With the skill of a biblical scholar, the heart of a prophet, and the rich background of a Guatemalan-American, Dr. Carroll speaks Solomonesque wisdom that will help us all." -Don Sweeting, senior pastor, Cherry Creek Presbyterian Church, Greenwood Village, Colorado
"Christians at the Border is a timely, must-read book for the church in the United States. Hispanic immigration is having an impact on every facet of the American landscape. The thinking of many American citizens concerning Hispanic immigration is being shaped by heated and emotional political debate both locally and nationally. There seems to be no easy solution to this issue, and political demagogues only make matters worse by creating a culture of fear and anxiety for both citizens and immigrants. M. Daniel Carroll R.'s book helps us think through this complex issue clearly and soberly by presenting a well-documented historical and biblical perspective on immigration and people movements. This book will help the American church see God's heart on this matter and act sensibly, compassionately, and biblically toward the stranger or alien living and working among us." -Dennis J. Rivera, district superintendent of the Central Latin American District Council of the Assemblies of God, Denver, Colorado
Christians at the Border seeks to remedy that situation by drawing on the ethical resources of both the Old and New Testaments to provide a biblical perspective on the immigration debate. The author is of mixed Hispanic and Anglo parentage and cultural experience, so he is uniquely qualified to address the issue. He does so in a balanced, accessible, and informative manner. Besides plumbing Scripture for insights, he outlines a history of Hispanic immigration to the United States and addresses a largely overlooked issue--the impact that the large influx of Hispanic immigrants is having and will continue to have on the American church. Beyond its wide appeal, this book will prove a helpful supplemental text in courses in ethics, contemporary culture and Christian faith, and missiology.
