The Stranger Among You: How the Faith-Based Refugee Resettlement Movement Is Shattering Our Red and Blue Silos

by Kate Rice

Where do secular liberals and religious conservatives stand shoulder to shoulder? In refugee resettlement.

Flying beneath the radar of much of the national media is a faith-based refugee resettlement movement that sees Americans from across the political spectrum working together. Trump and Clinton voters, pro-lifers and pro-choicers, the religious and the secular stand in solidarity on this issue. This book tells the story of a surprising piece of common ground in our nation. It profiles communities in nine states, seven of them in the Bible Belt and other red states, that are major refugee resettlement centers with huge grass-roots support.

These are people seeking to live the words of the Bible in Matthew, John, and Leviticus by helping the very refugees the Trump administration seeks to keep out of the country.

And in doing so they are reaching out to the community beyond their church doors.
