What should Christ’s injunction to ‘love your neighbour’ mean in practice today?

Press Reviews

'This outstanding guide helps us understand our own place as strangers and migrants, to discover hidden gifts in neighbours, known and unknown.'

- Canon Sarah Snyder, Archbishop of Canterbury's Adviser for Reconciliation

This brilliant book addresses one of the most urgent questions of our time: how to welcome the strangers who come seeking a home with us. The authors face the challenge with realism, while showing what a source of blessing this may be for us all.

- Timothy Radcliffe OP, Blackfriars, Oxford

'This remarkable book is most timely, for it comes in the midst of an acute campaign of anti-neighbourliness. . . While the essays are intensely focused, the writers call attention to the thick complexity and multi-dimensioned practice of neighbourliness. These essays are richly suggestive of new openings for thought and action of a transformative kind.'

- Professor Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary

'This richly challenging and deeply engaging book merits careful consideration at a time when fear of the ‘other’ threatens to overwhelm us. In simple terms its theme is migration, but actually it’s about being human.'

- The Rt Revd Adrian Newman, Bishop of Stepney
