Tracy Wilde

Connecting Human to Human in a Disconnected World

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 this book, the author addresses what she considers the essential problem in the world today—lack of empathy. She explores how the loss of empathy has isolated people from one another. This isolation is the root cause of the conflicts that afflict our societies. In this passionate call to action, Wilde teaches readers how to break self-centered tendencies and become “active” listeners. This, she says, will lead to a more peaceful, harmonious world. She emphasizes that Christians must be leaders in restoring empathy to the world. She uses biblical stories of Jesus to show how compassion leads to more unity in the world and also more unity between the individual and God.

Tracy Wilde is a fifth generation pastor and preacher. Her great-great grandmother Taylor was a circuit preacher. Tracy’s fresh and honest message helps break down walls of insecurity and encourages people to find hope and purpose in Jesus alone. She has a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s of divinity degree in practical theology. Fresh out of college Tracy was offered a job in the Governor’s office of her home state and later moved to Capitol Hill in Washington DC, where she helped lead Bible study groups for congressional leaders, their families, and staff members. After finishing seminary, Tracy moved to Los Angeles, CA, where she helped pioneer and pastor for a Bible-study-turned-church for young Hollywood. Tracy loves wake surfing, paddle boarding, and basically anything else that has to do with warm weather and water.
