Along with globalization migration poses unprecedented challenges to the Christian churches in the fields of constructive theology, ethics, spirituality, mission, ministry, interreligious dialogue, and theological education. How can the Christian churches successfully meet these challenges posed by global migratory movements? In suggesting ways that help the churches fulfill this task, the essays in this volume draw from a variety of streams of thought, including liberationist, postmodern, and postcolonial theologies, and from a wide range of contexts, such as the U.S., Latin America, and Asia. They probe new ways of interpreting the Bible, the contributions of migrants to Christianity, the function of the city in religious developments, ways of being Christian, Christian mission, theological method, and theological education. The result is a theology of migration that is appropriate for the emerging World Christianity, as its approach is interdisciplinary, interdenominational, interreligious, and intercontinental.

About the Author:

Elaine Padilla is Assistant Professor at the New York Theological SeminaryPeter C. Phan is the Ignacio Ellacuría Chair of Catholic Social Thought, Theology Department, Georgetown University

Review:

"Contemporary Issues of Migration and Theology is a significant volume of theological essays on crucial facets of migration, which is one of the major consequences of globalization. This volume is unique in presenting a wealth of much-needed theological analyses on the exceedingly complex phenomenon of contemporary migration, with its attendant reconstitution and redefinition of spaces and theopolitical implications for a global outlook." - Namsoon Kang, Professor of World Christianity and Religions, Brite Divinity School, TCU, USA, Author of Cosmopolitan Theology

"Elaine Padilla and Peter C. Phan have gathered a collection of perspectives on the enormous impact that immigration is having on the field of theology today. These essays demonstrate that Eurocentric assumptions of truth and method are increasingly becoming associated with white dominance, and that Christian theologians ignore the 'dogmatic' centrality of immigration at their own risk." - Orlando Espin, Professor, Theology and Religious Studies, University of San Diego, USA

"This volume's breadth of important topics, insightful analyses, and leading practitioner scholars distinguish it as a landmark work. I highly recommend it!" - Timothy Matovina, Professor of Theology and Executive Director of the Institute for Latino Studies, University of Notre Dame, USA
