Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Thinking Biblically about Immigration

This updated and revised edition reflects changes since the first edition was published, responds to criticisms, and expands the original biblical presentation.

"The issue of immigration has been one of the most complex issues to navigate for Christians committed to truth, justice, and mercy. As an evangelical leader, I am profoundly appreciative that Danny Carroll has provided an insightful treatise grounded in biblical erudition and pastoral sensibilities. Christians at the Border is one of the most compelling and welcome contributions in the national dialogue concerning immigration."
--Rev. Gabriel Salguero, president, National Latino Evangelical Coalition (NaLEC)

"The second edition of Christians at the Border could not be coming out at a more crucial time in our country's history, when evangelicals of all political stripes are joining together to push for sensible immigration reform. This updated version reinforces the biblical call for Christians to 'welcome the stranger' and further lays out the case for viewing our country's immigration policy through the lens of Scripture. A must-read for any Christian who is interested in immigration reform."
--Jim Wallis, president and founder, Sojourners; author of On God's Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn't Learned about Serving the Common Good

"Danny Carroll's lovely Christians at the Border is the best available treatment of how Christians should feel, think, and act concerning the issue of immigration. The book is enriched profoundly by the author's own bicultural background and perspective, which makes it possible for him to speak to both Hispanic and Anglo readers with equal insight and grace. This is the book that needs to be in every Christian's hands right now as our legislatures debate immigration--and in the days and years that follow."
--David P. Gushee, Center for Theology and Public Life, Mercer University

"In a crowded field of raised, often strident voices debating the 'immigrant problem,' M. Daniel Carroll R. wades in, joining other Christian Latina/o scholars, to remind us that the Bible, not political wrangling or economic benefits, must be the determining lens for the church. Evangelicals in particular and Christians in general will appreciate his timely argument."
--Loida I. Martell-Otero, Palmer Theological Seminary, Eastern University
