"The text is both eclectic enough to broaden its prospective appeal past any artificially narrow margins and also replete enough with critical and stimulating research that even the most well-informed theorist will discover something fresh and provocative." -- -B. Keith Putt Samford University "A welcome and timely contribution at a time when the question of how to relate to the different and other is up front politically, ethically, and philosophically." -- -Jim Olthuis Institute for Christian Studies, Toronto "As a whole, this is an excellent contribution to the growing body of literature in philosophy on strangeness, the stranger, and hospitality." -Missiology: An International Review (American Society of Missiology)
