A must-read - thought-provoking, beautiful
This is part-memoir, part-creative-essays about the author’s experience of living alongside and working with refugees in America, and how it completely changed her view of mission. What I loved about this book was that it wasn’t guilt-mongering – she manages to walk the line between passion, compassion and gentleness, not only for those she’s working with, but for herself and other missionaries who’ve made mistakes. To read it is to re-encounter the grace of God and the wonder and love of Jesus.
Insightful, intelligent, inspiring – it’s the sort of book I keep talking about and want everyone to read. Vital reading for all wannabe missionaries, and the best place to start to learn to love refugees well – it is, quite simply, brilliant.
