The Meaning of My Neighbor's Faith: Interreligious Reflections on Immigration offers an original and insightful set of reflections on immigration, forced and chosen, as a defining feature of today's society and of human self-understanding in communities large and small. Faiths old and new are respected and listened to in these pages, brought to life in a multidimensional way well-fitted to our times. Deeply imbued with interreligious sensitivities, the contributors offer social and political, cultural and religious insights that illumine the realities and significance of immigration for all wishing to understand how we live and shape human and religious communities today. -- Francis X.
