«Although Christians are supposed to be known by our love for one another, we have somehow become known for our hate for people who don't look or vote like us, including our Christian brothers and sisters. In Loving Samaritans, Terry Crist calls us all back to the place where we are known by the one thing that Jesus said matters as much as how we love God: how we love our neighbor. This book is masterfully written and a must-read for all who call Jesus Lord of their lives. Nona Jones, author, Killing Comparison; preacher; tech executive»

«Loving Samaritans urges us to reflect on our actions and evaluate how we show love toward others. It is a thought-provoking read, evoking a sense of conviction while also providing encouragement and practical guidance. Terry courageously tackles sensitive subjects that many shy away from, bravely addressing important issues. Dan Blythe, Alpha Youth global director; author; speaker»

«As much as you will be amazed and astonished by Terry Crist's peerless storytelling and his radical rethinking of the familiar, you will be even more amazed and astonished by the fathomless and fulsome love of Jesus. I was sad when the book ended, and will return to it like a pilgrim to a holy site, seeking ongoing inspiration and guidance. Leonard Sweet, author; professor; publisher; founder, PreachTheStory.com»

«It's hard to think of a message more timely and necessary in our world today than this clarion call to radical kindness. We've all been hurt. We've all hurt others. Especially Christians. Something has to change. I particularly appreciate Terry Crist's vulnerability in the chapter 'Insiders and Outsiders,' his consistent focus on Jesus, and his thoughtful commentary throughout. Here we have the brilliant mind and tender heart of a seasoned pastor grappling with one of the most important issues of our time. Pete Greig, 24-7 Prayer International»

«In Loving Samaritans, author Terry Crist takes readers on an emotional and inspiring journey that reaffirms our faith in Jesus' compassion, kindness, and invitation to be a good neighbor. This beautifully crafted book weaves authentic stories and personal experiences, reminding readers of the extraordinary capacity for goodness within us all. People are looking for presence over perfection. This book offers a compelling exploration of empathy, generosity, and grace. It will touch your soul, uplift your spirit, and give you hope.

«In a world full of polarizing opinions and fearmongering sound bites, Pastor Terry has written a book to help the church look more like her savior, Jesus. In a world that is growing more and more polarized and tribal, we need this book. In the years that I've known Terry Crist, he has embodied the message of this book. Pastor Terry is a friend, a pastor, an orator, and so many other things. But it is undeniable that he has chosen to love Samaritans. The church needs this book. Our world needs this book. Manny Arango, pastor; speaker; author, Brain Washed»

«It seems as if Christians are more divided than ever. Rather than living on mission, we have become increasingly polarized from our brothers and sisters who might see social issues differently than we do. Sadly, we have created an us-versus-them culture. In his book Loving Samaritans, Terry Crist invites us on the journey of radical love. Using Jesus' encounter with the woman at the well and other Samaritan stories, as well as difficult circumstances from his own life, Terry offers a path for us to walk in truly living out the message of Jesus. This book is an important one! Holly Wagner, cofounding pastor, Oasis Church; founder, She Rises; author, Find Your Brave»

«My friend Terry has written a tour de force. This is not an ethereal and sanitized set of ideas disconnected from reality. What is inside is an invitation to actually deal with the world God has invited us to love. Good doctors don't ignore the pain. They go to it. In this book you are in the hands of a very good doctor. This book is a gift. A. J. Swoboda (PhD, University of Birmingham), associate professor of Bible and Theology, Bushnell University; author, After Doubt»

«Loving Samaritans is a clear and courageous message to awaken the body of Christ and embrace the call to love God and neighbor. Terry Crist has given us a practical perspective on how to embody Jesus' presence in our communities. David Docusen, author, Neighborliness: Love Like Jesus. Cross Dividing Lines. Transform Your Community»

«Loving Samaritans is an incredible exploration of timeless teachings, weaving together the threads of faith, compassion, and unity. Through its poignant retelling of biblical stories, this book reignites the flame of soul-stirring conviction. It offers a powerful blueprint for embracing love as a force that transcends boundaries. Tim Timberlake, senior pastor, Celebration Church; author of the bestselling The Art of Overcoming»

«Pastor Terry Crist boldly reminds the church of the radical love of Jesus and our duty to love our neighbors as ourselves. Evan Craft, Christian recording artist»
