The global crisis of forced displacement is growing every year. At the same time, Western Christians' sympathy toward refugees is increasingly overshadowed by concerns about personal and national security, economics, and culture. We urgently need a perspective that understands both Scripture and current political realities and that can be applied at the levels of the church, the nation, and the globe. In Refuge Reimagined, Mark R. Glanville and Luke Glanville offer a new approach to compassion for displaced people: a biblical ethic of kinship. God's people, they argue, are consistently called to extend kinship-a mutual responsibility and solidarity-to those who are marginalized and without a home. Drawing on their respective expertise in Old Testament studies and international relations, the two brothers engage a range of disciplines to demonstrate how this ethic is consistently conveyed throughout the Bible and can be practically embodied today. Glanville and Glanville apply the kinship ethic to issues such as the current mission of the church, national identity and sovereignty, and possibilities for a cooperative global response to the refugee crisis. Challenging the fear-based ethic that often motivates Christian approaches, they envision a more generous, creative, and hopeful way forward. Refuge Reimagined will equip students, activists, and anyone interested in refugee issues to understand the biblical model for communities and how it can transform our world.

In Refuge Reimagined, Mark R. Glanville And Luke Glanville Offer A New Approach To Compassion For Displaced People: A Biblical Ethic Of Kinship. God's People, They Argue, Are Consistently Called To Extend Kinship-a Mutual Responsibility And Solidarity-to Those Who Are Marginalized And Without A Home. Drawing On Their Respective Expertise In Old Testament Studies And International Relations, The Two Brothers Engage A Range Of Disciplines To Demonstrate How This Ethic Is Consistently Conveyed Throughout The Bible And Can Be Practically Embodied Today. Glanville And Glanville Apply The Kinship Ethic To Issues Such As The Current Mission Of The Church, National Identity And Sovereignty, And Possibilities For A Cooperative Global Response To The Refugee Crisis. Challenging The Fear-based Ethic That Often Motivates Christian Approaches, They Envision A More Generous, Creative, And Hopeful Way Forward.
