THE BIBLE AND IMMIGRATION

By LORETTA FULTON

Tired of the political rhetoric on immigration?

How about a new take, actually a very old one?

“Jesus, King of Strangers: What the Bible Really Says About Immigration” is the title of a new book by Mark Hamilton, professor at Abilene Christian University’s Graduate School of Theology. In the book, Hamilton argues that, “Reclaiming the biblical language will free the church from hypernationalism and fear-driven demagoguery.”

Hamilton will give a presentation at Thursday in the Chapel on the Hill in ACU’s Biblical Studies Building.
