The God who Sees: Immigrants, the Bible, and the Journey to Belong

Using examples from his extensive experience, theologian and top-selling author Jack Deere explains the gift of prophecy and its essential contribution to the church. His straightforward presentation demonstrates that prophecy is not an exotic frill but an important gift for building up the body of Christ. He offers sound pastoral wisdom for the discernment and use of the gift to help readers avoid abuses and excesses that may occur in the exercise of the gift.
Meet people who have fled their homelands.
Hagar. Joseph. Ruth. Jesus.

Here is a riveting story of seeking safety in another land. Here is a gripping journey of loss, alienation, and belonging. In The God Who Sees, immigration advocate Karen Gonzalez recounts her family’s migration from the instability of Guatemala to making a new life in Los Angeles and the suburbs of south Florida. In the midst of language barriers, cultural misunderstandings, and the tremendous pressure to assimilate, Gonzalez encounters Christ through a campus ministry program and begins to follow him.
Here, too, is the sweeping epic of immigrants and refugees in Scripture. Abraham, Hagar, Joseph, Ruth: these intrepid heroes of the faith cross borders and seek refuge. As witnesses to God’s liberating power, they name the God they see at work, and they become grafted onto God’s family tree.
Find resources for welcoming immigrants in your community and speaking out about an outdated immigration system. Find the power of Jesus, a refugee Savior who calls us to become citizens in a country not of this world.
