Dr Casey Strine: Migration and Exile then and now

September 16, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Dr Strine will explore what both the Old Testament and New Testament say about migration, developing the insight that a massive number of biblical texts are written by migrants to other migrants about migration. By recognising this feature, analysing what these texts say about migration, and thinking carefully about how this compares to contemporary experiences, Strine will outline a biblical basis for responding to the current debates about migrants and migration policy in the United Kingdom.
