A Better Country: Embracing the Refugees in our Midst, by Cindy Wu. William Carey Library, 2017. Paperback; 98 pages.
This study aims to help Christians in the US think theologically and practically about the global refugee crisis. It’s set up as a workbook for personal or group study but could also be used as a reference work, being particularly strong on data, with history, facts, charts, quotes, etc., and sources carefully cited. Includes up-to-date lists of refugee advocacy and assistance organizations as well as recommended books, articles, simulations, and documentaries (20 of them!) about refugees.
