In Love Undocumented, Quezada takes readers on a journey deep into the world of the U.S. immigration system. Follow her as she walks alongside her new friend, meets with lawyers, stands at the U.S.–Mexico border, and visits immigrants in detention centers. With wisdom from Scripture, research, and these experiences, Quezada explores God’s call to welcome the stranger and invites Christians to consider how to live faithfully in a world of closed doors and high fences. Is it possible to abandon fear and cultivate authentic relationships with new arrivals? What if hospitality to immigrant and refugee neighbors puts us at personal risk? How can churches create safe spaces for those living at the precarious edge of our society? With Quezada as your guide, discover a subversive Savior who never knew a stranger. Get to know the God of the Bible, whose love and grace cross all borders. Respond to an invitation to turn away from fear and enter a bigger story.

Reviews

Review by: Shawn Casselberry, executive director, Mission Year, coauthor of Soul Force - September 26, 2017
“Love Undocumented is a beautifully written book about what happens when a political issue becomes intimately personal. Sarah Quezada reminds us that immigration involves real people with real stories and that everything changes when we enter into deep relationships with them.”
Review by: Jeff Shinabarger, founder of Plywood People and author of More or Less - September 26, 2017
“If you believe that you should love your neighbor, read this book. Sarah Quezada has a life story of living love and will give you the chance to see a greater view of your neighbor in today’s world.”
Review by: Juan Martinez, professor of Hispanic studies and pastoral leadership, Fuller Theological Seminary - September 26, 2017
“Sarah Quezada invites us into the complex and convoluted world of U.S. immigration laws through her life experience and through a solid biblical and theological interpretation of God’s love and care for foreigners and migrants. Quezada’s challenge to trust God and immigrants is particularly timely.”
Review by: Bob Lupton, author of Toxic Charity and founder of FCS Urban Ministries - September 26, 2017
“Love Undocumented is a poignant and highly revealing account of a journey into the perplexing, ethically conflicted, heartrending world of undocumented immigrants. A winsome and convicting work.”
Review by: Leroy Barber, The Voices Project - September 26, 2017
“Love Undocumented is a wonderful story that will capture your imagination. Sarah Quezada is a gifted storyteller who has us laughing one minute, crying the next, and then wincing from punch-in-the-gut analysis. You will be delighted by the story and convicted by the message.”
Review by: Matthew Soerens, author of Seeking Refuge and Welcoming the Stranger and U.S. church training specialist for World Relief - July 1, 2017
“Love Undocumented will have you alternating between laughter and tears. Both personal and profound, this deftly written book will both entertain you and move you closer to God's heart for the immigrant.”
Review by: D. Mayfield, author of Assimilate or Go Home: Notes from a Failed Missionary on Rediscovering Faith - July 1, 2017
“Immigration is a hot-button topic but one that is rarely addressed in thoughtful, nuanced, dignifying ways by the people who are most affected by this issue. I am incredibly impatient for Love Undocumented to be published, so I can give it to everyone I know.”
Review by: Shannan Martin, author of Falling Free: Rescued from the Life I Always Wanted - July 1, 2017
“In Love Undocumented, Sarah Quezada peels back the curtain on complex immigration issues and those trapped within them. At a time when division reigns, Sarah offers an invitation to walk in solidarity and kinship with our immigrant neighbor.”
