Dave Runyon believes we can transform our cities by loving our neighbors—and he’s not alone. Jesus’ Great Commandment, the pinnacle of all his teaching, commanded Christians to love God with everything they have, and to love their neighbors as themselves. Runyon wants Christians to take this command literally.
He shares his personal encounter as he realized he needed to love his neighbors, and the messy aftermath of getting to know neighbors he had lived by for years but never engaged. Runyon offers advice on how to create genuine friendships with the people who live in closest proximity to us, and promises our efforts will be rewarding and eye-opening.
