"A terrible virus has spread across the planet and turned the human race into bloodthirsty monsters. Mankind's only hope for survival is ..." Originally part of the tagline for the sci-fi thriller I Am Legend, these lines describe the undercurrent of unrest and turbulence in our world. The virus we face is hate - an epidemic infecting social media, politics, neighborhoods, and homes. Communities of believers, which should be clinics with the cure, are instead suspected of being primary carriers of the virus. But there is hope. Love is the only cure for a sick and dying world. But not just any kind of love. Love First offers a clear-eyed assessment of the current love/hate crisis and a practical, doable strategy for how Christians can begin to truly love, especially those who do not love us in return. With wit, humor, and hard-hitting questions, McLaughlin will surprise, inspire, convict, and challenge you with God's call to love as we have been loved.
