"When someone wants to know about the U.S. immigration debates, I'll point them to this book. Dale Hanson Bourke is unmatched at giving an even-handed and readable account of controversial matters." --Mark Galli, editor, Christianity Today
"It was eye-opening when I realized how many people in my life how many people in my church were directly impacted by the immigration debate. This issue, so often driven by abstract statistics and predetermined ideology, affects real people who matter to God, and who ought to matter to the church. In Immigration, Dale Hanson Bourke helps clear the fog surrounding the immigration issue so we can address it sensibly and compassionately." --Bill Hybels, senior pastor, Willow Creek Community Church
"'A lie will go round the world,' Charles Spurgeon once quipped, 'while truth is pulling its boots on.' Few contemporary issues are as mired in misinformation, half-truths and rumors as the topic of immigration, and sorting myth from reality can seem like a full-time job. Thanks to this most recent installment in Dale Hanson Bourke's Skeptic's Guide Series, though, the facts have a chance of catching up with the inaccuracies. With concise responses to many of the most pressing questions on one of the most urgent issues impacting the church and our nation today, Immigration lays out the facts, allowing readers to reach their own informed opinions." --Matthew Soerens, US church training specialist at World Relief, field director of Evangelical Immigration Table and coauthor of Welcoming the Stranger
