Seminary Publication: Thinking Christianly about Immigration
Feb 08, 2012 by M. Daniel Carroll R. | 0 Comments
In the fall of 2010 Denver Seminary’s Vernon Grounds Institute for Public Ethics (VGI) sponsored a year-long series of activities related to immigration. Each year VGI picks a social issue to deal with from an evangelical point of view. See the website at http://www.denverseminary.edu/grounds-institute/
From those activities and other contacts the seminary put together a short book with the title Thinking Christianly about Immigration. It has four chapters: two by me on the biblical framework for the discussion; one by Craig Wong, a Chinese-American, who reflects upon his family’s experience and then processes it theologically in light of the Lord’s Table; and one by Darrell Jackson, a British missiologist, who surveys the impact of immigrants on European Christianity. Immigration clearly is a global issue, and Christians many cultures and in different parts of the world are engaging the topic in fresh and constructive ways.
The book costs $5. Copies can be obtained by contacting Frieda Craig, who works with VGI, at
