"Soerens and Hwang argue persuasively that immigration has been and is valuable to the United States."--Marvin Olasky, WORLD, August 15, 2009
"Soerens and Hwang advocate a generous, biblically based invitation to all immigrants to take part in America. This book will not persuade all Christians to support liberalized immigration laws, but even the skeptical should find the authors' approach useful."--Tony Carnes, Christianity Today, May 2009
"Soerens and Hwang have injected justice, compassion, and truth into what needs to become a new conversation on immigration--values that are often in short supply in this debate."--Glen Peterson, Sojourners, June 2009
"While Sorens and Hwang may not answer all your questions about the correct response to current immigration policies and, indeed, may even raise more complex questions, they do show us that, if we are to act justly, we will have to consider all its complexities."--Jim Miller, The Daily Sentinel, July 31, 2010
"Soerens and Hwang do an impressive job making a complex and charged issue accessible for the average reader."--Ben L., Book Bargains and Previews (bookbargainsandpreviews.com), April 2009
