More than 63 million people around the world today are refugees, displaced from their homes by the dark shadow of evil. These unfortunate people, whether victims of war, violence, persecution, or of intolerable economic plight, all have a story to tell. This powerful and inspiring story, based on the actual experiences of a young African family who fled from that “shadow of evil,” is one of those incredible stories. Their 17,000 mile journey from “Death to Life,” is an amazing triumph of Christian faith, courage, and perseverance. As we walk with them through this valley of death, we have the opportunity to share their fears, understand their motivation, and to test our own convictions. As we formulate our views regarding the contemporary immigration question in our country, we may find it difficult to reconcile our moral conscience with the practical consequences of these important decisions. This book does not attempt to provide the answer, but hopefully, will provide a useful perspective for thoughtful consideration.
