Jesus challenges his followers to do something that is never easy and always countercultural: love your enemies (Matt. 5:44). And in today’s polarized world, where entrenched battle lines are drawn on issues ranging from sex to politics to race, the call to love the “other side,” no matter what, is harder than ever.
Stanley Hauerwas (theologian/Professor Emeritus, Duke Divinity School), Sister Helean Prejean (Author, Dead Man Walking), Barry Corey (President, Biola University), Caleb Kaltenbach (author, Messy Grace), and Christena Cleveland (social psychologist/Professor, Duke Divinity School) discussed what it means to model the compassion of Christ and love those across the divides of culture, race, gender, politics and more.
