In the public sphere there is much heated rhetoric about immigration and simplistic "solutions" are proposed to deal with the "problem." In contrast to this simplistic, black and white discourse, Soerens and Hwang present a very thoughtful, human, multifaceted look at the issue. They help the reader understand the pushes and pulls that lead people to immigrate to the United States, both historically and today. They look at the issue of undocumented immigrants, the current immigration law and help the reader understand why we have so many undocumented immigrants. They look at what the Bible has to say about immigration and what should be the church's and the Christians' response to this issue. They also talk about the value immigrants bring to this country. Finally they include appendices rich with resources on the immigration issue. This book is a valuable resource for anyone wanting to have a better understanding of the complexities and nuances of the immigration issue. The authors address the issues of the debate in a well-researched and compassionate manner. Highly recommended. CJV
