Seeking to re-imagine the meaning and significance of the international border, Opening the Floodgates makes a case for eliminating the border as a legal construct that impedes the movement of people into this country. Open migration policies deserve fuller analysis, as evidenced by President Barack Obama’s pledge to make immigration reform a priority. Kevin R. Johnson offers an alternative vision of how U.S. borders might be reconfigured, grounded in moral, economic, and policy arguments for open borders. Importantly, liberalizing migration through an open borders policy would recognize that the enforcement of closed borders cannot stifle the strong, perhaps irresistible, economic, social, and political pressures that fuel international migration. Controversially, Johnson suggests that open borders are entirely consistent with efforts to prevent terrorism that have dominated immigration enforcement since the events of September 11, 2001. More liberal migration, he suggests, would allow for full attention to be paid to the true dangers to public safety and national security.

The narrative of Noah's flood in Genesis draws perennial interest from scholars and the general public. Too often, however, historical and exegetical studies of the text, the story's reception, and discussion of theological appropriation remain aloof from each other, if not at odds. This volume takes the influential nature of the flood story as an ideal opportunity to bring some of these methods into dialogue. Opening Heaven's Floodgates offers sixteen new essays from international scholars which utilize some of the diverse tools that contemporary biblical scholars have. These are balanced between textual, historical, comparative, and theological approaches, ranging from Jewish calendars to modern ark builders, 1 Enoch to Ricoeur. Beyond each essay's new perspectives on the flood narrative, they are drawn together with an introduction focusing on the themes of myth and reception and two critical responses to the collection by Walter Bruggemann and Philip Davies. Opening Heaven's Floodgates will appeal to all interested in Genesis, the Pentateuch, early Judaism, mythology, and in the influence of the Bible in the West.

Who wouldn't agree that after the death of a loved one it's tough - really tough - to see the empty crib, the unmoved slippers by the back door, the coffee mug without fresh lipstick on it, or the computer no longer booted up? Perhaps we're tempted to deny the jagged edges of emotion and just get back to what we were doing before death sorely interrupted us. And in a crazy crowded schedule it's easy to give grief a swift kick or, more politely, a cold shoulder. In other words, "Quit bugging us!" But, wait! Not so fast! OPEN THE FLOOD GATES introduces you anew to grief, to see it as a friend to help you process your loss when death breaks into your family circle, community of faith, or connection of friends. OPEN THE FLOOD GATES encourages you to invite grief to accompany you on the path of sorrow. Instead of getting stuck, grieving well helps you to move forward. No, the journey is not without its hairpin curves, narrow escapes, and startling discoveries, but at some point you'll dare to look back and realize that by God's grace your faltering step has broken into a new stride. That's why it's time to OPEN THE FLOOD GATES and welcome grief into seasons of loss. Will you second that e-motion?
