Product Description

Immigration and refugee policy clearly involves determinations about what is good for persons and communities. Yet little has been written about ethical perspectives on migration issues. This lack of attention is also evident in the literature of Christian ethics. Although churches are often active in ministries with immigrants and refugees, scholars have not brought Christian perspective to bear on the ambiguities and complexities of migration policies. This book seeks to respond to this challenge. It explores U.S. immigration and refugee policy from a Christian perspective.

Publisher's Description

Re-Creating America explores U.S. immigration and refugee policy from a Christian perspective. What are the contributions that Christian communities can make to public discourse and decision making? This book does not presume that Christian ethics leads directly to policy solutions. It does maintain that Christians can bring an orientation to migration issues that is significant for shaping the policies of the national community. The argument of the book leads to support for generous admission policies, with preferential provisions for those in greatest need for a place of safety and opportunity.
