Marie Friedmann Marquardt, a Scholar in Residence at the Chandler School of Theology at Emory University, reviews Kinship Across Borders: A Christian Ethic of Immigration by Kristin Heyer and Asylum Seeking, Migration and Church by Susanna Snyder. Heyer’s book examines immigration patterns and their socioeconomic context in light of Christian theology. Snyder’s book is a work of Practical Theology that looks to bring current experiences of Christians into conversation with Christianity’s spiritual and theological traditions, and the author examines the “encounters” that Churches have with immigrants in order to examine Church engagement with migration.
