Editorial Reviews


“One can hardly find . . . a serious discussion of the human dignity and rights of the migrants who cross international borders to find work or join family. A Promised Land, A Perilous Journey, a compilation of essays taking a theological and rights-based approach to the issue of migration, provides a needed framework to begin that discussion. Comprised of pieces from a wide range of scholars, advocates and service providers, it engages the contemporary immigration debate from a faith-based, Catholic perspective. . . . [A] useful resource for Catholics (and others) who want to reach beyond the dehumanizing language of the national immigration debate and articulate a vision of the migrant as a human being created in God’s image.” —America

“The editors of this volume have gathered together many leading figures within Christian theological circles to reflect on an urgent issue in our world-migration. The articles range from those that are quite academically technical to those that are more generally accessible. There are several outstanding articles that should not be missed.” —Multicultural Review

“This book offers fresh and much-needed approaches to migration, providing convincing support for the notion that any serious study of migration, especially with respect to Latinos/as in the United States, must include religious and theological considerations.” —Theological Studies

“The book should be read by anyone interested in acquiring a deeper grasp of the complex issues surrounding the border and immigration; it succeeds in its task of proposing a theology growing out of the experience of immigrants. . . . A Promised Land is an important contribution to the development of a full and robust theology of migration.” —The Journal of Markets and Morality

“Groody and Campese have assembled 17 essays from an international body of Roman Catholic scholars, religious and lay practitioners. The predominant note is … one of human rights advocacy in the light of the liberating God’s option for the poor. . . . There is ample demonstration that theological reflection engages the real situation on the ground to afford an outsider to the debates insight into the deadly plight of migrants on the US-Mexico border.” —Studies in Christian Ethics

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
With all the controversy that goes on today surrounding the issue of immigration and reform, the one thing that gets put aside is the humanity involved in it. The various reflections bring a spirituality and teaching to the issues that remind us that the gospel IS involved here. Good reading!
