Immigrant Theology: A Quest for Relationship

Front Cover
WestBow Press, Sep 20, 2018 - Religion - 98 pages

What if I told you a story about children experiencing deportation? What if I told you of parents and children facing interment and enduring untold hardship as they traveled through the desert landscape? What if I told you about families that brave destructive environments in their homeland the as they flee? What if I told you about the religious experience of immigrants whose faith helped them conquer their daily fear of being deported while they made a new life for themselves in this country? What if I told you about the power of establishing relationships as the solution to the problem of immigration? What if I told you about Jesus encountering and establishing relationships with foreigners?
