Par J. Bailey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Of the modern political controversies, the question surrounding illegal immigration is the one that causes me the most self-doubt. I have long held that contempt of law should never be rewarded and that amnesty is not the proper response. However, in the last few years, God has taught me to love justice. My compassion for the immigrant wars with the clear sense of right and wrong concerning the law. So, a while back (read a year and a half) I elected to receive an early review galley copy of a book on the subject. I shamefully have just gotten around to reading it.

The book is written by an Old Testament scholar at Trinity International University and attempts to collect the biblical evidence that might be applied to the issue of illegal immigration in an easy to ready format. I generally appreciate the books narrative structure, essentially tracing the story of Israel from Abraham to the Exile and then jumping to Jesus before concluding. Unfortunately, this narrative approach does not pay the dividends one might expect. Hoffmeier's book contains lengthy paraphrasing of biblical stories set off by inordinately long block quotes of biblical text. He largely fails to actually make an argument when he works through this material instead choosing to leave his points only loosely connected to the present discussion.

Hoffmeier also makes several interpretive arguments that are more assertions than arguments. For example, he attempts to align certain Hebrew words with legal resident and non-legal resident arguing that the text makes an important distinction between them. This might be the case, but Hoffmeier offers no philological evidence to back up his claim with the exception of noting that the LXX uses proselytos indicating a religious understanding of the term for some. He does provide footnotes for this material, but he does not incorporate the arguments apparently given by the texts he cites. More troubling is Hoffmeier's tendency to seamlessly weave together archeological material with the text of the Old Testament to make his arguments. Much of the information he provides is interesting but ultimately irrelevant, and awkwardly pins the text to the archeological material treating them as if they are the same sort of thing.

Hoffmeier's consideration of the New Testament is extremely terse, and one wonders at the wisdom of spending six chapters on the Old Testament and rushing through the New Testament material. His points are generally fine, his argument based on Romans 13 is largely agreeable, but he makes awkward material choices. He spends a long time arguing that the "least of these" in Matthew 25 should only apply to Christians or disciples of Jesus , leaving us to infer that this means that the text cannot apply to illegal immigrants. Then, in the next chapter, he points out that the vast majority of illegal immigrants are Christians. I was left scratching my head at his logical inconsistency.

Ultimately, I largely agree with Hoffmeier's conclusions, but I cannot help but say that he has done a poor job arguing them. Perhaps the great shortcomings of the book should be attributed to its obvious orientation to lay readers, but the book fails if it is read as a primer for ethical reflection on the issue of illegal immigration. If you want an easy to read book that will discuss some of the issues in a lay-friendly manner and do not mind its hasty conclusions, then this book would at least make a decent starting point. If you are hoping for substantive exegesis and ethical argumentation, look elsewhere.

HASH(0x946438d0) étoiles sur 5 biblically sound 14 octobre 2014
Par Joe P. McAdams - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Professor of Old Testament and Near Eastern archaeology at Trinity International University and Egyptian born American citizen, James K. Hoffmeier knows about immigration from a biblical standpoint and from personal experience.

There is much confusion and disagreement among Christians about how to handle the current immigration crisis in America. Some say we should welcome all outsiders and others support strong immigration laws. Can such disparate views be supported by the same Bible?

The Immigration Crisis is a biblical study of immigration that focuses mostly on the Old Testament. There is less focus on the New Testament simply because there are very few people featured there who are migrating from one place to another. Hoffmeier cuts through the confusion and rightly divides the Word of God helping his reader to gain a biblically informed understanding of immigration. The words alien, foreigner, and, sojourner appear in our English Bibles but they do not all mean the same thing. Understanding the differences brings much needed clarity.

According to the biblical record aliens were permanent residents who were from another country. Foreigners were not. Hence, a straightforward reading of Scripture declares that the alien and the foreigner were not the same. To become an alien, a permanent resident in a country other than your country of origin, required the explicit invitation of the host country.

Hoffmeier does not spend much time applying these principles to the current immigration debate in America. But, those who make the Bible their foundation should understand what the Bible says about immigration before quoting Scriptures in defense of their cause.

The Immigration Crisis is a must read for anyone who wants to think biblically about immigration.

HASH(0x9461beac) étoiles sur 5 Excellent biblical scholarship untainted by wishful thinking of PC 29 mai 2014
Par Mark E. Roberts - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The author evinces compassion for and a welcome to immigrants, but the purpose of the book is to read the Bible carefully to highlight its treatment of this topic. Most welcome is his superb OT analysis, arising from proficiency in the biblical languages and the world of the ancient near east. This analysis shows how ancient Israel lived in a world not unlike ours regarding immigration and how the scriptures distinguished between legal and illegal aliens and give not one warrant for blurring the distinction or treating the illegal as if they were legal. The ancient Hebrews were understandably sensitive to immigration issues because they were legal immigrants into Egypt. But when there arose "a pharaoh who knew not Joseph," they experienced quickly and painfully an abrupt change in status when they went from being legal resident aliens to being enslaved. Thus the scriptures that tell these Hebrews not to mistreat aliens/immigrants. But there is no comfort offered to those who wish to set themselves and their political opinions above the law in order to justify treating illegal aliens as if they are legal.

This is an excellent book Dr. Hoffmeier, unlike other others, starts with a biblical basis. He's clear and concise and documents his views from scripture very well. Other authors on the topic start with an emotional pull and then try to use the Bible to convince you why you need to put all your thinking aside to help the cause.
