Publisher's Description

Nothing confronts a person's faith quite like injustice, pain, suffering. We see these things in our world, in our neighborhoods, and we don't know what to do with ourselves. We've got to do something, but where to begin? What to do? How to do it? Crazy Enough to Care will take you and your friends on a journey, uncovering the things that make compassion impractical in contemporary society, addressing the fears that crop up as we consider reaching out to people we know and people we don't know, and offering opportunities to practice compassion together. Give Alvin Bibbs and his team of experts twelve sessions, and you and your group will find yourselves changing the world by caring for others.

Editorial Reviews

"If you are crazy enough to care and brave enough to engage this study, you will be embarking on a deeply transformative journey. This is a wonderful guide for cultivating compassion and participating in God's heart for justice and racial reconciliation!"
"The issues of injustice and racial discrimination must be faced head on. I have not yet seen a group study that challenges its participants at this level. Alvin sets the bar high, urging readers to open their eyes to a world desperately in need of Christ's compassion. Beyond that, this provocative and insightful study leads participants into action in the ways of Christ. I can't recommend this experience highly enough."
"I dare anyone to get up close to the words of Alvin Bibbs and not come away inspired at what God might do through one life."
" Crazy Enough to Care is not only a great title, it's a great book. Who was Jesus, and what difference does it make if we are his followers? Jesus was about God and people, relationships and transformation. In the most practical, usable book I have seen, we are taken on a journey to 'passing on Jesus' outrageous compassion, justice and racial reconciliation.' We don't exist as individuals apart from others. We were created social beings, and this book shows us both why and how to be so. It is a book designed to be studied in groups, so we can apply its lessons immediately. This book is a must for churches. I can't wait to get started using it in mine."
" Crazy Enough to Care will change your mind, your heart and your actions toward all people once you see them through the eyes of Christ. Alvin Bibbs helps us to see God and others in that light through this practically challenging book!"
"I've known Alvin Bibbs for over twenty years, and he has always been 'crazy enough to care' for people, regardless of their color, culture or class. His new book provides those of us who love God and who are working on loving our diverse neighbors a practical and biblical guide on how to engage in real relationships with people in need of love, reconciliation and justice."
