Migration is a very divisive issue in our society today and the focus of intense political debate. So do the Bible's ancient texts offer any insights that might help us explore our attitudes to people migrating around the world today?

This six-session study guide looks at passages from both Old and New Testaments to explore a variety of ways in which the Bible addresses the subject of migration. Many of the biblical characters and, indeed, authors were themselves migrants, with deep experience of the challenges faced by those who find themselves settling far from home.

Ideal for small group study, each session includes:

  • Background information
  • Bible encounter
  • Group discussion questions
  • Further suggestions for personal reflection

Through their study and discussion, group members are encouraged to deepen their understanding and explore what positive steps they might take to deal with the issues related to migration today.

ourselves… I hope and pray that this book will build positive change as we
seek together to love the stranger.’
