The Immigration Crisis: Immigrants, Aliens, and the Bible (by James K. Hoffmeier)


Description:

An estimated twelve to fifteen million people now reside illegally in the United States, posing a major social and legal challenge to the nation. Americans are divided over the best course of action in dealing with these illegal immigrants, and Christians are using the Bible to stake out different positions.

The Immigration Crisis addresses this complex issue through a comprehensive look at the Bible. By a careful study of relevant materials in the Old Testament, in combination with archaeological and sociological materials, the author forms a clear definition of an alien in Israelite society. This understanding is an important starting point in the current debate.

The book concludes by suggesting how the Bible might assist Christians in thinking about the problem [of the immigration crisis] and in developing the implications of the biblical teaching for public policy. (Description from Amazon)

James K. Hoffmeier (PhD, University of Toronto), who has taught at the undergraduate and graduate levels for more than thirty years, is professor of Old Testament and Near Eastern archaeology at Trinity International University. Born and raised in Egypt, he has been a refugee from war and an alien in two different countries, giving him firsthand experience with immigration issues. (Description from back of book)
