About-

How do different Christian denominations in the United States approach immigration issues? In Immigrant Neighbors among Us, U.S. Hispanic scholars creatively mine the resources of their theological traditions to reflect on one of the most controversial issues of our day. Representative theologians from Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, Methodist/Wesleyan, Pentecostal, and Independent Evangelical church families show how biblical narratives, historical events, systematic frameworks, ethical principles, and models of ministry shape their traditions' perspectives on immigrant neighbors, law, and reform. Each chapter provides questions for dialogue.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"A superb collection of chapters addressing immigration from the theological, ethical, and pastoral perspectives of most of the main ecclesial traditions present among U.S. Latinas/os today. Highly recommended for those seeking a serious, informed, and more sensible understanding of immigration."
--Orlando O. Espin, Professor of Systematic Theology, University of San Diego

"This book is a splendid rejoinder to the critique that Latino/a theology has not developed a full-fledged theology of migration. Digging deep into Latino/a experiences of migration and the theological resources of six different Christian communities, the contributors offer rich and challenging reflections on migration . . . I most strongly recommend this book to church leaders, those ministering with and for Latino/a migrants, and activists working for the reform of law and public policies regarding migration."
--Peter C. Phan, Ignacio Ellacuria Chair of Catholic Social Thought, Georgetown University
