Read in July, 2008

The book did a good job of mentioning the historical aspects of immigration that are raised in the bible. It was a quick reminder of how many stories exist in the bible about people who moved from one land to another and ended up being key to the history of religion in the world. Examples are Ruth, Joseph, Moses, and even Jesus who was taken into Eqypt when he was a baby.

One thing that bothers me about a book that's an "introduction" to a topic. When an author says repeatedly that "this is just an introduction, I won't go into more detail," I can't help but wonder how much better the book would be if the author would just go ahead an add the detail. It may have taken up about the same amount of space, or added another hundred pages to the book.
