About this book

The painful reality faced by refugees and migrants is one of the greatest moral challenges of our time, in turn, becoming a focus of significant scholarship. This volume examines the global phenomenon of migration in its theological, historical, and socio-political dimensions and of how churches and faith communities have responded to the challenges of such mass human movement. The contributions reflect global perspectives with contributions from African, Asian, European, North American, and South American scholars and contexts.  The essays are interdisciplinary, at the intersection of religion, anthropology, history, political science, gender and post-colonial studies. The volume brings together a variety of perspectives, inter-related by ecclesiological and theological concerns.

Reviews

“How many and profound are the challenges to human goodness and identity that attend the arrival of ‘the other’ in a community! The reactions of both newcomers and long-time residents can range from elation to dread. The essays in this wonderful collection reflect the four key terms of Pope Francis—all are called to welcome, protect, promote and integrate the stranger—and all peoples are called to dialogue toward reconciliation, solidarity and flourishing in communities that are diverse and alive. The book is thus important and very timely.” (His Eminence Michael Cardinal Czerny, S.J., Under-Secretary, Migrants and Refugees Section, Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development)

 

 

“The Church, Migration, and Global (In)Difference takes us on a sobering and, at the same time, hopeful journey into the complex and multifaceted ecclesial challenge of global migration. Its contextual and interdisciplinary approach as well as global perspectives provide a valuable contribution to the growing theological literature on migration.” (Gemma Tulud Cruz, Senior Lecturer in Theology, School of Theology and Member, Institute of Religion and Critical Inquiry, Australian Catholic University, Austarlia)

 

 

“Our time has been dubbed the ‘Age of Migration.’ This book offers an understanding of this global phenomenon from a truly multidisciplinary perspective brought by scholars, activists, and leaders from around the globe. It not only provides explanations of the root causes as well as the immediate reasons for this mass human movement but also suggests strategies and practical actions to alleviate the sufferings of migrants and create a more just and equitable society. It is an excellent addition to the burgeoning literature on migration and a fitting tribute to Gerard Mannion, a quintessential migrant.” (Peter C. Phan, Ellacuria Chair of Catholic Social Thought, Department of Theology and Religious Studies and faculty fellow at the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs, Georgetown University, USA)
