Overview

In a world where “neighbor” has become as meaningless as a “friend” or “follower” online, this book shows how true neighbor love is the long-term work of forming and maintaining more just communities.

 

In To Love Our Neighbors activist and ethicist Joe Blosser weaves together resources in theology, community development, economics, anti-racism, and environmental sustainability to help community leaders, organizations, students, churches, and neighborhoods embrace solidarity for change. Even with the best intentions many current practices of loving our neighbors often do more harm than good.

 

Offering new practices of neighbor love, Blosser guides us to live in solidarity with others across our differences, exercise sufficiency in our economic lives, and care for the sustainability of our planet and communities. When we engage in these practices, we foster the shared sense of common good, mutual responsibility, and interconnectedness that Jesus intended.
