I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you a few of the helpful resources that I have recently discovered in my work in the area of diaspora missiology. While there are some excellent evangelical writings on this topic, they are few in number. For few Evangelicals are thinking and writing in the area of this category of missiology, and even fewer Evangelicals are aware of the Great Commission opportunities that global migrations set before the Church. Therefore, some of the best resources on the topic of migration studies come from writers who do not write with the Great Commission in mind. It is my hope that this matter will change. Until that day arrives, Evangelicals are wise to mine (with discernment) the volumes of books and articles sitting in libraries related to global migrations.
I have listed below a few of the outstanding works available related to diasporic issues that are written from outside the perspective of the Church. Also, unfortunately, some of these books are expensive, so consult your local public or college library. My top recommendation, if you only could read one, would be: Stephen Castles and Mark J. Miller, Age of Migration: International Population Movements in the Modern World, 4th ed. (New York: The Guilford Press, 2009).
I would be interested in knowing what resources you have found to be helpful. Here are mine:
