The House That Love Built is the quintessential story of one woman's questioning what it means to be an American-and a Christian-in light of a broken immigration system. Through tender stories of opening her heart and home to immigrants, Sarah Jackson shines a holy light on loving our neighbor.

Sarah Jackson once thought immigration justice was administered through higher walls and longer fences. Then she met an immigrant-a deported young father separated from his US-citizen family-and everything changed. As Sarah began to know fractured families ravaged by threats in their homeland and further traumatized in US detention, biblical justice took on a new meaning.

As Sarah opened her heart-and her home-to immigrants, she experienced a surprising transformation and the gift of extraordinary community. The work she began through the ministry of Casa de Paz joined the centuries-old Christian tradition of hospitality, shining a holy light on what it means to love our neighbor.

The dilemma of undocumented people continues to hover over America, and it raises urgent questions for every Christian:

• What is our responsibility to the "stranger" in our midst?
• What does God's kingdom look like in the global-political reality of immigration?
• What difference can one person make?

Sarah engages these questions through profound and tender stories, placing listeners in the shoes of individuals on every side of the issue-asylum seekers torn from their families, the guards who oversee them, ordinary people with lapsed visas, the families left to survive on their own, the unheralded advocates for immigrants' rights, and the government officials who decide the fates of others.

Ultimately, Sarah's journey illuminates how hope can be restored through simple yet radical acts of love.
