Bible study on statelessness

by Hans Ucko

08 December 2016

A short biblical reflection for individual or congregational use to facilitate Advent reflection through awareness of the vulnerable persons.

The experience of his father’s fleeing Nazi Germany in 1938 and then living alien and stateless in Sweden provides biblical theologian Hans Ucko with the touchstone of his writing about stateless persons.

Commissioned and edited by WCC programme executive Semegnish Asfaw, it is one of a dozen biblical reflections published by WCC Publications in I Belong: Bible Reflections on Statelessness.
