They worked together, on behalf of immigrant populations, to address the theological and pastoral concerns involved - and to pray together for those whose lives were being directly affected. This book grows out of their work together - and the relationships that developed among them.

How do different Christian denominations in the United States approach immigration issues? In Immigrant Neighbors among Us, U.S. Hispanic scholars creatively mine the resources of their theological traditions to reflect on one of the most controversial issues of our day. Representative theologians from Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, Methodist/Wesleyan, Pentecostal, and Independent Evangelical church families show how biblical narratives, historical events, systematic frameworks, ethical principles, and models of ministry shape their traditions' perspectives on immigrant neighbors, law, and reform. Each chapter provides questions for dialogue.

Pastoral care has been traditionally understood as pastoral acts administered to individuals or small groups by an ordained or lay religious practitioner. As congregations in the twenty-first century begin to reclaim the missional nature of church, this view must be broadened to include care and concern for the needs of the larger community. A missional perspective of pastoral care embraces the notion that all of God’s people—not just trained professionals—are called to partner in the healing and redemption of the world. In Beyond Church Walls, Rick Rouse sets out to articulate precisely what such an approach to pastoral care looks like—and the substantial impact it can have on congregations and communities. A skilled teacher and pastor with deep experience in real communities, Rouse leads readers through the changing realities of the twenty-first century and to new ways for missional churches to succeed in offering pastoral care for the whole community.

At latest count, 244 million people--the highest number in history--reside in a nation in which they were not born. But migration is not a new phenomenon. Elizabeth Colliers and Charles Strain's Global Migration: What's Happening, Why, and a Just Response unpacks the complex issues surrounding modern migration. Using the See, Judge, Act method of reflection and action, this text goes beyond facts and statistics, offering personal narratives, principles for critical thinking drawn from Catholic social teaching, and opportunities for action from the individual to the international level. Focused on the humanitarian work of Catholic Relief Services throughout the world, Global Migration inspires reflection, provokes discussion, and empowers students to respond to today's greatest humanitarian crisis.

• Written by an active bishop, who is also a medievalist and a natural story-teller • Brings the medieval and the modern together Spending time with the St Augustine’s Gospels, believed to be the oldest non-archeological object in Great Britain, Smith uses this great volume as a starting point for a contemporary conversation on communication, unity, and continuity. How does the church find that connection with its past, its present, and its future? How do we share the Good News using today's media, and how do we learn more about that process by considering vellum and quills? A wonderful story-teller, Smith moves seamlessly between the medieval world and the modern. Audience: Those interested in learning from the past as we face the current challenges of the church both within the US and across the world.

Few issues are as complex and controversial as immigration in the United States. The only thing anyone seems to agree on is that the system is broken. Mark Amstutz offers a succinct overview and assessment of current immigration policy and argues for an approach to the complex immigration debate that is solidly grounded in Christian political thought. After analyzing key laws and institutions in the US immigration system, Amstutz examines how Catholics, evangelicals, and main-line Protestants have used Scripture to address social and political issues, including immigration. He critiques the ways in which many Christians have approached immigration reform and offers concrete suggestions on how Christian groups can offer a more credible political engagement with this urgent policy issue.
