Stop fighting the culture, and start transforming it.
 
When Pastor “Choco” De Jesús was a twelve years old boy, his Chicago neighborhood erupted in gang violence for three horrible days. On the third day, the mayor called in the National Guard to restore order. When the smoke cleared, only burned-out cars, broken store windows, and hatred remained. Choco felt vulnerable and helpless, and soon he turned to the only source of security, life, and purpose—the love of Jesus.
 
Pastor Choco leads out of his experience, knowing what it's like to wonder if you'll live through the day, and how it feels when someone cares enough to step in and provide hope and care. His church is known for compassionately serving those who are often overlooked, or worse, despised, in our culture: prostitutes, gangbangers, homeless, and others who feel abandoned. Pastor Choco’s bold love for people has opened doors and allowed him into the highest offices in the land, including at the White House.
 
Love is contagious. It has the power to break through defenses and shatter walls that divide us. It's also costly, and requires time, focus, and intention. It's uncomfortable, and can push you beyond your preconceived limitations and understanding. It's no easy task, and isn't always safe. However, love is beautiful, transformative, and is always the answer. Do your part, and love them anyway.
 
The message of this book will reach you in your deepest desires, expose your hesitations, connect you more deeply with God's love, stimulate your creativity, and help you take bold steps to love the people around you, and watch as your love changes others.
 
Love Them Anyway is made for personal study, small group studies, and even church-wide applications that reach out to your local community.
 
This book will help you confront your own prejudices, remove fences, and get the gospel to the marginalized.
