There are more than 100 million refugees in the world today and the number is growing daily. It has never been more urgent for Christians to respond to this global crisis. This course offers an overview of the politics and ethics of refugees from a Christian theological point of view. Starting with a detailed survey of the contemporary situation, we will explore in depth what the Bible has to say about forced migration before delving into the many ethical conflicts over immigration in both the church and the wider world. Finally, we will look at some of the practical challenges that face those who work closely with refugees.
