Thank you, Caleb, for reminding us that our good God is here now and is going to be here tomorrow." --Kyle Idleman, best-selling author of Not a Fan and Grace Is Greater "We have no idea how much rises and falls on our ability to love people.

And love is the only path to freedom." --Kristen Ivy, executive director of messaging at Orange and founder of the Phase Project "Jesus told us to love our neighbors, because He knew that love changes everything.

Corey, president of Biola University and author of Love Kindness "Hurting people don't need clever advice or another self-help book--they need the gospel!

Rae, Ph.D, dean of faculty and professor of Christian ethics at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University "The world is broken and people are hurting.
