The Science of the Good Samaritan

Thinking Bigger about Loving Our Neighbors
  • By Emily Smith
Product Description

Loving your neighbor isn't just a nice idea--it's one of Jesus's most important commands. Dr. Emily Smith will transform your understanding of this instruction and help you live it out in practical, everyday ways.

In recent years, disparities and inequities have come to wider attention--including in the church--that were created by years of oppression, suppression, worldviews, ideologies, politics, and systemic biases. The sheer size of the problem can feel overwhelming, and you may wonder what you can do to make an impact.

Join Dr. Emily Smith, global health expert and creator of the popular Facebook page Friendly Neighbor Epidemiologist, as she dives into what loving your neighbor--as illustrated in the biblical parable of the Good Samaritan--truly means. Combining Dr. Smith's expertise as a scientist with her deep Christian faith and drawing from her journey from small-town Texas to a prestigious university, The Science of the Good Samaritan shares fascinating stories of faith at work in the Bible, in Dr. Smith's life, and in the lives of others to show us how to:

  • Find shared values with those who are not like us
  • Reach outside of our immediate circles to bring in those on the margins
  • Redefine our concept of "neighbor" and love them in a more practical and global way
  • Finally bridge the gap of society's disparities and inequities

Change the world by loving your neighbor.
