    1. Ched Myers Matthew Colwell Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Our God Is Undocumented: Biblical Faith and Immigrant Justice book, this is one of the most wanted Ched Myers Matthew Colwell author readers around the world.

    2. Torn between 3 and 4 on this one - a 3.5 if it were possible! Unlike some other more mainstream books on immigration justice and Christianity, this one names within a few pages of its introduction that it is "not neutral" and it is so, so much better for it! Rather than the maddening back and forth of "Some people feel this way, but others feel this way,"(cough Welcoming the Stranger: Justice, Compassion Truth in the Immigration Debate cough) it comes at us directly with boldness and some real c [...]

    3. I think this book offers an outstanding and original Biblical perspective on immigration issues, highlighted with varied contemporary immigrant experiences. It certainly deserves more attention from the faith community and beyond. Ched Myers offers scholarly, insightful and surprising Biblical insight.

    4. Through clear, vibrant biblical exegesis, sociological analysis, and heart-wrenching personal profiles, Meyers and Colwell leave no doubt that authentic christian discipleship entails the radical inclusion of the immigrant--God's kingdom has no borders and requires no documentation.

    5. This is an excellent book in immigration in the U.S. today. It combines Biblical studies with personal stories in a very engaging manner.

    6. Excellent look at immigrant through the lens of a faith perspective rather than a nationalist perspective. The author provides a solid lens through the social sciences, through Biblical exegesis, and through the lived experiences of those who are working for immigrant justice and those who have been recipients of inhumane treatment.
