One of the things that motivated me to write the book: Love As a Way of Life is what I see on television day after day. Watch any talk show and you will see that we have lost the art of meaningful dialogue. We have little respect for those who disagree with us. Politicians and religious leaders seem to be in an attack mode most of the time. Someone recently asked me, “Do you really think that love has a chance in today’s world?” I believe that love is our only chance. If we come to respect all people as persons for whom Christ died and we treat them as potential brothers and sisters, we have a chance of bringing them to Christ. He is their only hope.
