Seeking Refuge: On the Shores of the Global Refugee Crisis
We can’t ignore the refugee crisis—arguably the greatest geopolitical 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, an international non-profit specializing in refugee resettlement, 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.
"This book is a powerful, persuasive case that the people of Christ should care about the vulnerable, including those fleeing from danger. Read this book with an open mind and a Christ-shaped conscience.

The Bible speaks repeatedly to God’s heart for those who are refugees—individuals who have been forced by persecution to flee their country of origin and take up residence in a new land. This reading plan is adapted from Seeking Refuge: On the Shores of the Global Refugee Crisis.
