- About this book
Offering a theology of migration, Cruz reflects on the Christian vision of 'one bread, one body, one people' in view of the gifts and challenges of contemporary migration to Christian spirituality, mission, and inculturation and the need for reform of migration policies based on the experience of refugees, migrant women, and others.

Gemma T Cruz is Senior Lecturer in the School of Theology at Australian Catholic University, Australia
“This book would be a valuable resource for those teaching on issues of social justice, migration, gender, and contextual theology. Not only does it add to important literature emerging on theology and migration, but it is also one of the first to specifically work toward a systematic articulation of a theology of migration. It offers a new way of understanding not only migration but also the discipline of theology and those struggling for a more dignified life.” (Daniel G. Groody, Horizons, Vol. 42 (2), December, 2015)
"Dr. Cruz's book presents a thorough and articulate theology of migration by drawing from Catholic social teaching and religious experience and practices of migrants, especially migrant women. Based on many years of research, the book provides new lenses to look at inculturation, mission, and spirituality beyond borders. I recommend it enthusiastically."
Kwok Pui-lan, William F. Cole Professor of Christian Theology and Spirituality, Episcopal Divinity School, USA.
"Gemma Cruz has produced an impressive synthesis of the growing body of literature on migration in relation to religion and social justice. Well researched, engaging, and using an interdisciplinary methodology, this work succeeds in being at once substantive, comprehensive and original. Researchers and teachers, social workers, activists, and ministers will find Cruz' analysis compelling and thought provoking. This volume offers pertinent readings for classes in women's, religious, theological and intercultural studies, to name just a few of the areas illuminated by this remarkable, wide-ranging study."
Allan Figueroa Deck, SJ, Professor and Casassa Chair of Catholic Social Values, Loyola Marymount University, USA.
