Review of Mark R. Glanville and Luke Glanville, Refuge Reimagined: Biblical Kinship in Global Politics
Christians in Australia have been far from unanimous about what their response should be to the ongoing global refugee crisis and Australia’s role as a destination country. Despite this many congregations, however, have become involved in providing hospitality for refugees and advocating on their behalf justifying their involvement by reference to the teachings of Jesus. While this intuitive appeal to Scripture is not inappropriate as a starting point, the complexity of the issues that have emerged over time have raised questions that require a more substantial theological response. The theological resources laid out in Refuge Reimagined draw on interdisciplinary conversation between biblical scholarship and empirical accounts of refugee experience, and hospitality in refuge countries.
