Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Examples relate to oppression and injustice being done to ‘neighbors’ in a much larger global community…each chapter provides specific exercises containing truly insightful questions. It is these structured inquiries that are most likely to provoke readers to examine personal perceptions as well as behaviors and passive indifference that can lead to oppression and injustice.” Booklist
“This book is a refreshingly honest, very important resource for all followers of Christ. More and more people in the church today are reawakening to the importance of not just sharing, but also showing their faith…Labberton’s authenticity, combined with practical ideas and steps for personal reflection, will deeply challenge and encourage all seeking to be faithful disciples of Christ.” Outreach
"This book opened my eyes to the difference between doing something, and becoming someone—a person of justice, reoriented to the heart of Jesus. Sara Groves, singer/songwriter
“Labberton has brought all this experience to bear in writing a book that should be read, and studied by everyone who is serious about seeing the world as God sees it and becoming a person who lives the transforming power of God’s justice in the world.” Presbyterian Outlook
“[The Dangerous Act of Loving Your Neighbor] can help a congregation experience profound insight into both God’s character and our practical response to God’s mission in the world.” Christian Century
