How should Christians respond to the greatest refugee crisis in recorded history? Matthew Soerens is my guest. Matthew is the U.S. Director of Church Mobilization for World Relief, the humanitarian arm of the National Association of Evangelicals. He is the coauthor two books, the later forthcoming – Welcoming the Stranger and his latest book, Seeking Refuge: On the Shores of the Global Refugee Crisis, which will be released by Moody Publishers on July 5. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Wheaton College and his master’s degree from DePaul University’s School of Public Service. In addition to the books he has authored, he has written for publications such as The White House, Christianity Today and Lifeway, but most frequently blogs at g92, a culture-shaping movement seeking to equip the next generation of Christian leaders for an effective, biblical response to immigration. Matthew is one of the most eloquent and knowledgeable experts on refugee care and immigration issues.
