What to expect
With so many people around the globe migrating, how should Christians and the church respond? Leading Latino-American biblical scholar M. Daniel Carroll R. helps listeners understand what the Bible says about immigration, offering accessible, nuanced, and sympathetic guidance for the church.
After two successful editions of Christians at the Border, and having talked and written about immigration over the past decade, Carroll has sharpened his focus and refined his argument to make sure we hear clearly what the Bible says about one of the most pressing issues of our day. He has reworked the biblical material, adding insights and broadening the frame of reference beyond the US. As Carroll explores the surprising amount of material in the Old and New Testaments that deals with migration, he shows how this topic is fundamental to the message of the Bible, and how it affects our understanding of God and the mission of the church.

Listen to a sample
“Carroll has long provided an authoritative, biblical perspective on issues of immigration. In The Bible and Borders, he combines top-notch scholarly analysis with a pastoral heart to provide a concise yet thorough review of how the Scriptures should inform a distinctly Christian approach to this complex issue. Allow this book—and the Scriptures it points to—to form your heart and mind as you consider how to respond to the immigrants within your community.”
“Carroll serves the Christian community well by laying the biblical foundation for all of our immigration talk and work. He’s smart enough to know this will not, of itself, solve the complex specifics entailed in ‘welcoming the foreigner,’ about which Christians of good faith will still disagree. But if they read Carroll’s book, they will absorb at least this much: God’s preferential option for the immigrant. And that is no small thing.”
