A note from

Jeremy Courtney

CEO, Preemptive Love

This is a book about war. Yes, about that kind of war. About dodging airstrikes. Cradling those left for dead. Coming face to face with terrorists. Running for our lives.

I’ve done all of these. But it’s not just the bullets and the bombs that make us run. We’re not just at war with each other. We’re at war with ourselves. We’re running from the way things are.

There is something that matters more than what we’re running from, though. And that’s what we’re running toward. I believe there is a more beautiful world on the other side of war, on the other side of violence, on the other side of all that’s tearing us apart. I’ve seen glimpses of it in some of the most war-torn places on earth. And it’s waiting for you across the battlelines of your own community.

A more beautiful world is out there, and I’d like to show you.
