Review quote

There are many books now available on the ethics and politics of migration, but this one stands out. It includes not only Christian perspectives, but also views from the world's other great religious traditions. It also places the U.S. discussion on migration in the larger global context of migration, showing the topic as one of the most remarkable features of our time. Religious and Ethical Perspectives on Global Migration is an indispensable addition to the literature on migration today. -- Robert Schreiter, Catholic Theological Unionshow more
