From the author: Examining theological reflection in an age of migration, the author focuses on four foundations of a theology of migration and refugees: (1) Imago Dei: Crossing the Problem-Person Divide," (2) Verbum Dei: Crossing the Divine-Human Divide; (3) Missio Dei: Crossing the Human-Human Divide; and (4) Visio Dei: Crossing the Country-Kingdom divide. As a call to cross borders and overcome barriers, migration is a way of thinking about God and human life and an expression of the Christian mission of reconciliation.

This is roughly the equivalent of the population of Brazil, the fifth largest on the planet. (2) Many of these migrants are forcibly uprooted: approximately 30-40 million are undocumented, 24 million are internally displaced, and almost 10 million are refugees. (3)
