LOUISVILLE — John Pavlovitz’s “Worth Fighting For: Finding Courage and Compassion When Cruelty is Trending,” a book published by Westminster John Knox Press, is now available.

“‘Worth Fighting For’ is a stirring playbook for Christians who strive to ensure that kindness triumphs over toxicity,” says Foreword Reviews. “Forthright and encouraging, ‘Worth Fighting For’ envisions a grassroots revolution of love led by a ‘compassionate coalition of those who give a damn.'”

John Pavlovitz has inspired millions to keep boldly loving both neighbors and strangers throughout the years of hate-mongering political campaigns in recent years. Pavlovitz continues to be a voice of sanity and urgency when so much is still at stake.

It’s a scary time for America, with rights for women and transgender people being rolled back, the truth about Black history and experience being silenced, and unrestricted gun violence on the rise, according to WKJ Press. People who value inclusion, compassion, and the common good are understandably anxious and angry — but we can’t give up hope. We need motivation to keep fighting for justice.

This inspiring volume provides the encouragement, stamina, and direction we need to keep going, even when things feel bleak.
