COMPASSION is often viewed as a secondary movement in the Christian life. Challenging that standpoint, Bleed Out is about hearing the compassionate voice of God in our lives, understanding that voice, and responding to it through our own Christ-like compassion towards others. Bleed Out highlights some of the heroes often overlooked in the market-driven, socio-religious economy of Western Christianity. Beginning with a foundation of understanding where compassion comes from, Bleed Out leads into a series of stories that show the compassion of Jesus in the New Testament. These are followed by parallel stories of Christ-like compassion that are happening today all over the world, ranging from students like you to the marginalized and others who may be nothing like you. Each section ends with opportunities for interactive reflection and a personal continuation of the themes addressed in that section.
