Publisher's Summary

When Jesus was asked to sum up everything into one command, he said to love God with everything we have and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Most of us have turned this simple idea of loving our neighbors into a nice saying, putting it on bumper stickers and refrigerator magnets and then going on with our lives without actually putting it into practice. What would happen if every follower of Jesus took the Great Commandment literally? Is it possible that the solution to our society’s biggest issues has been right under our noses for the past 2,000 years?
Once upon a time, people knew their neighbors. They talked to them, had cook-outs with them, and went to church with them. In our time of unprecedented mobility and increasing isolationism, it's hard to make lasting connections with those who live right outside our front door. We have hundreds of "friends" through online social networking, but we often don't even know the full name of the person who lives right next door. This unique and inspiring book asks the question: What is the most loving thing I can do for the people who live on my street or in my apartment building? Through compelling true stories of lives impacted, the authors explain how to create genuine friendships with the people who live in closest proximity to us.

Great Content, Performance is almost robotic

What did you love best about The Art of Neighboring?

The message is excellent and motivational!


How could the performance have been better?

The performance was too robotic sounding. The sound quality was off - all "s" sounds are like the performer is too close to the mic, which is annoying.

Excellent read!

This book really changed my thoughts on what it means to be a good neighbor and what Jesus said about it as well. If you decide to read this book go in with an open mind and heart.
