Summary, Etc. "Is the holy family a refugee family? If the holy family fled persecution today, how would American and European refugee systems receive Jesus and his parents? Would they be protected from refoulement? Would they receive rights to employment and civic engagement? Would they be turned away? Is the holy family a refugee family? Combining historical, theological, and legal analyses, JESUS THE REFUGEE argues that the holy family would have a limited set of legal options for protection and would be unlikely to receive any at all. Butner introduces the basics of modern refugee law and raises ethical challenges to our current refugee system by highlighting Jesus as one of the "least of these," indicting our moral failures and challengeing us to make amends." -- Page 4 of cover.
