Risking Trust in a Fearful World
As a young Christian, Sarah Quezada was blissfully unaware of the real situations facing today’s immigrants. Then she made a new friend . . . . who happened to be undocumented.
In Love Undocumented, Quezada takes readers on a journey deep into the fraught world of the U.S. immigration system. With wisdom from Scripture, sociology, and her own experience, Quezada explores God’s call to welcome the stranger, which forces Christians to consider how to live faithfully in the world of closed doors and high fences. How can followers of Jesus engage in the thorny polemics of the immigration debate? Is it possible to eschew fear and cultivate authentic relationships with new arrivals to our country? What if hospitality to our immigrant and refugee neighbours puts us at personal risk? How can churches create safe spaces for those living at the precarious edge of our society?
With Quezada as your guide, discover a subversive Saviour who never knew a stranger. Turn away from fear and paralysis. Get to know the God of the Bible, whose love and grace cross all borders.
“Love Undocumented will have you alternating between laughter and tears. Both personal and profound, this deftly written book will both entertain you and move you closer to God's heart for the immigrant.” —Matthew Soerens, author of Seeking Refuge
“Immigration is a hot-button topic but one that is rarely addressed in thoughtful, nuanced, dignifying ways by the people who are most affected by this issue. I am incredibly impatient for Love Undocumented to be published, so I can give it to everyone I know.” —D. L. Mayfield, author of Assimilate or Go Home
“In Love Undocumented, Sarah Quezada peels back the curtain on complex immigration issues and those trapped within them. At a time when division reigns, Sarah offers an invitation to walk in solidarity and kinship with our immigrant neighbor.” —Shannan Martin, author of Falling Free
