We often assume America needs to help immigrants, but in The New Pilgrims, Joseph Castleberry opens our eyes to how the opposite is true -- and how we can join in one of the greatest spiritual movements this country has ever seen. In the midst of an apparent religious decline in the United States, many Americans are looking for solutions to this dilemma. Our hope lies with Christian immigrants, who bring to our churches powerful testimonies of faith from cultures all over the world. As the "new pilgrims" settle into their lives here, they are taking the American church by storm and helping rebuild America's conservative foundations. It's time to acknowledge this exciting time of spiritual renewal and embrace the political and relational choices that will once again establish America as the "shining city on a hill" we all want it to be. A convincing -- and biblically grounded -- case here for the fact that we have special obligations toward those immigrants who are our sisters and brothers in Christ. -- Richard Mouw, President Emeritus, Fuller Theological Seminary Brilliant analysis of the religious and spiritual impact of immigrants on society in the United States. -- Andrew Young, Civil Rights Leader, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and Mayor of Atlanta, Georgia Put down all those books and articles bemoaning the spiritual decline of America and learn what God is doing through immigrants committed to Christ and to the church. -- Leith Anderson, President, National Association of Evangelicals
