What will rule our hearts: fear or compassion?
We can't ignore the refugee crisis-arguably the greatest geo-political issue of our time-but how do we even begin to respond to something so massive and complex?
In Seeking Refuge, three experts from World Relief, a global organization serving refugees, offer a practical, well-rounded, well-researched guide to the issue.
Who are refugees and other displaced peoples? What are the real risks and benefits of receiving them? How do we balance compassion and security?
Drawing from history, public policy, psychology, many personal stories, and their own unique Christian worldview, the authors offer a nuanced and compelling portrayal of the plight of refugees and the extraordinary opportunity we have to love our neighbors as ourselves.
