A Promised Land, A Perilous Journey: Theological Perspectives on Migration's authors recognize that one
characteristic of globalization is the movement not only of goods and
ideas but also of people. The crossing of geographical borders confronts
Christians, as well as all citizens, with choices: between national
security and human insecurity, between sovereign national rights and
human rights, between citizenship and discipleship. Bearing these global
dimensions in mind, the essays in this book focus on the particular
problems of immigration across the U.S.-Mexico border. Daniel G. Groody & Gioacchino Campese include scholars as well as pastors and lay people
involved in immigration aid work.
