Religion and Politics in America's Borderlands brings together leading academic specialists on immigration and the borderlands, as well as nationally recognized grassroots activists, who reflect on their varied experiences of living, working, and teaching on the US-Mexico border and in the borderlands. These authors demonstrate the groundbreaking claim that the borderlands are not only a location to think about religiously, but they’re also a place that reshapes religious thinking. In this pioneering book, scholars and activists engage with Scripture, theology, history, church practices, and personal experiences to offer in-depth analyses of how the borderlands confront conventional interpretations of Christianity.

This pioneering book offers an in-depth analysis of the ways the borderlands confront Christianity. Every page insists that immigration and the borderlands must be at center of the study of Christianity. The arguments are new and important. Simply put, it is a landmark volume. (Nancy Pineda-Madrid, Boston College)
Religion and Politics in America’s Borderlands is a passionate and original collection of essays that explores the complex ways in which life in the Mexico-US borderlands and religious practices, commitments and theologies are affecting each other today. Written by a diverse set of scholar-activists, this book offers new insights into the experiences and political realities that constitute immigration, and also provides practical tips for talking about them. This is an engaging, accessible and eye-opening volume that will be a valuable resource for professors, students and pastors alike. (Susanna Snyder, University of Texas at Austin)
This powerful collection of essays not only speaks about the movement of peoples across borders but also the movement to a new way of thinking about migration. Writing from the crossroads of church, society, and culture, these engaged scholars present fresh insights into the human challenges at the border and the interplay of sovereign rights and human rights, natural law and civil law, and citizenship and discipleship. (Daniel Groody, University of Notre Dame)
