Americans are divided over the best courseof action in dealing with these illegal immigrants, and Christiansare using the Bible to stake out different positions.The Immigration Crisis addresses this complex issuethrough a comprehensive look at the Bible. By a careful study ofrelevant materials in the Old Testament, in combination witharchaeological and sociological materials, the author forms a cleardefinition of an alien in Israelite society. This understanding isan important starting point in the current debate.The book concludes by suggesting how the Bible might assistChristians in thinking about the problem of legal and illegalimmigrants, and in developing the implications of the biblicalteaching for public policy.
