This enlightening edited collection shows how migration shapes the lives of faith communities - and vice versa - through diverse prisms including diaspora, generational change, cultural conflict, conceptions of 'ministry' and artistic response. The contributors comprise writers, poets and artists from the three largest Abrahamic faiths (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) and beyond. They show how issues of migration are addressed through a variety of different media such as theological debate and shared community action, poetry and art. As issues of migration are an important factor in so many political and social debates, faith communities are looking for guidance on how to deepen their theological understanding of migration. This book helps them to reflect on their own practices and experiences, learn from their own traditions and engage in dialogue with diverse communities. *All royalties from book sales will be donated to The Helen Bamber Foundation - a UK-based charity that supports people who have survived extreme physical, sexual and psychological violence.*

The great paradox of migration through the ages is that in the journeying out, we find, or are at least searching for, home. Mapping Faith does justice to this storied paradox, so formative for Jews, Christians and Muslims, by weaving together narrative, theology, scriptural reflection, poetry and art. The result is a compelling and very human celebration of traditioned faith in a world on the move. -- Revd Dr Richard Sudworth, Secretary for Inter Religious Affairs to the Archbishop of Canterbury Reading Mapping Faith affords any reader with so many truly accessible and engaging perspectives on migration in the Abrahamic religions. From dialogue partners to poets to theologians to artists, this collection has something to fascinate everyone. Mosques, synagogues, and churches, not to mention seminaries, all need this on their library shelves! -- Rabbi Dr Deborah Kahn-Harris, Principal, Leo Baeck College (London) This is a fantastic, unique coming together of writings by people from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. It is thought-provoking, challenging and moving. It is personal as well as community focused and will serve as a crucial resource to encourage us all to critically think more about time, place, people, identity, home, faith and what those things mean for us all. -- Julie Siddiqi, Founder - Thrive Together
