The large-scale movement of refugees across the world is a matter of urgent humanitarian concern. This book reflects on the Christian requirement to act justly and deal rightly with the stranger in our midst, and further, on seeking the face of Christ in each person, the Christ forced as an infant into exile.
The book is dedicated to the memory of all who have undertaken the perilous journey from their homelands, and have not lived.
Rosemary Power is a writer who has volunteered in the refugee camps of northern France. She has worked professionally in church ministry, the voluntary sector and as an academic.
God grace us, as Sarah
and Abraham served
and sheltered the messengers
of their blessing,
that we may see your face in the exile,
we who are wanderers from Eden.
