Finding the Lost Art of Empathy

Connecting Human to Human in a Disconnected World

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Tracy Wilde, rising celebrity pastor who helped launch the LA Bible Study in Hollywood, reflects on the absence of empathy in today’s world and shares how Christians can renew their compassion to help unify not only the church, but society as well.

In Finding the Lost Art of Empathy, Tracy Wilde addresses the reasons why we struggle with showing empathy toward others and explains why we ultimately avoid it—and even avoid contact with others altogether. She explores the different facets that have promoted isolation instead of community and provides the antidote for a more unified, loving, and empathetic society. In this book Wilde hopes to inspire all of us to self-reflect and remove those obstacles from our lives so that we can experience true fulfillment in our relationships—the way God intended us to.

From Publishers Weekly

May 01, 2017 – When Wilde, a fifth-generation preacher, was in the midst of grieving her boyfriend's mysterious death (police eventually ruled it a suicide), she longed to genuinely connect with others. "All I wanted, all I really needed (at least in the beginning), was empathy," she writes in this Bible-based exploration of the forgotten skill of empathizing. Many times it's hard to know what to say when a friend is going through a difficult time, especially if one hasn't walked in similar shoes. Wilde offers practical advice and explains why it's of utmost importance to reach out to those who are hurting. In a conversational tone infused with self-deprecating humor, Wilde explores how social media has ironically caused a problem of emotional disconnection, but also demonstrates how technology can be of help if people use it to become more self-aware instead of self-obsessed. Drawing on passages from the Bible, such as the stories of the Good Samaritan and Joseph being betrayed by his brothers, she leads readers on a journey that will help them take Christ's message and put it into practice. A lack of empathy, Wilde claims, comes from a belief that we are more important than others. Her book offers an insightful, intelligent education on the importance of "loving our neighbor" on a deeply personal level.
