Building Noah's Ark for Migrants, Refugees, and Religious Communities free pdf Building Noah's Ark for Migrants, Refugees, and Religious Communities examines the way refugees and migrants use religion to reconstruct the broken worlds they leave behind as they build new lives during the Diaspora. Drawing the focus away from victimization, the spiritual and material use of religion sheds new light on the agency of refugees in reconstructing their lives and positioning themselves in hostile environments. Mirroring Noah's ark as a Christian image for rescue in stormy waters, Horstmann and Jung examine how religion is crucial for the identity formation of refugees, their sense of community and belonging, and their social mobility in hostile environments as they attempt to rise above their hardships.
