Following Britain's decision to leave the European Union, and with increasing division, xenophobia, and confusion over future national and international relationships, this thought- and action-provoking book considers the crucial question, Who is my Neighbour? What does the Christian injunction to `love your neighbour as yourself' actually mean in practice today? Contributions by renowned theologians and practitioners reflect on this subject in relation to issues of poverty, ecology, immigration, fear and discrimination, and the recent political upheavals both in Europe and the USA.

'This outstanding guide helps us understand our own place as strangers and migrants, to discover hidden gifts in neighbours, known and unknown.' * Canon Sarah Snyder, Archbishop of Canterbury's Adviser for Reconciliation * This brilliant book addresses one of the most urgent questions of our time: how to welcome the strangers who come seeking a home with us. The authors face the challenge with realism, while showing what a source of blessing this may be for us all. * Timothy Radcliffe OP, Blackfriars, Oxford * 'This remarkable book is most timely, for it comes in the midst of an acute campaign of anti-neighbourliness. . . While the essays are intensely focused, the writers call attention to the thick complexity and multi-dimensioned practice of neighbourliness. These essays are richly suggestive of new openings for thought and action of a transformative kind.' * Professor Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary * 'This richly challenging and deeply engaging book merits careful consideration at a time when fear of the 'other' threatens to overwhelm us. In simple terms its theme is migration, but actually it's about being human.' * The Rt Revd Adrian Newman, Bishop of Stepney *
