Loving Well in a Broken World: Discover the Hidden Power of Empathy

Lauren Casper. Thomas Nelson, $17.99 trade paper (240p) ISBN 978-0-7180-8555-1
Blogger Casper (It’s Okay About It) skillfully weaves personal stories and biblical lessons into this persuasive invitation to “love your neighbor as yourself.” Casper argues that becoming a better listener and extending one’s tent of “neighbors” to include those on the fringes of society form the core of being an empathetic Christian, and challenges readers to break new ground within themselves by using criticism as a personal trainer, forming empathetic connections on the internet, and helping the disenfranchised amplify their own voice instead of speaking for them. Casper illustrates her points by sharing her own story and divulges her struggles with infertility and epilepsy, as well as her experience with adoption and parenting a child with autism. Whether exposing her own emotional wounds, offering a fresh perspective on a biblical parable, or guiding readers toward positive change, Casper remains conversational and open throughout. This articulate exhortation for Christians to lead with empathy will please fans of Rachel Held Evans. (Feb.)
