Every year, thousands of complaints were lodged by neighbours against one another indicating a diminishing of civility and neighbourly consideration. Neighbourhood is the crucible where civil relationships and its accompanying civilities either grow or fail to grow. When neighbourly relationships are forged, positive neighbourliness is generated; and where it is not, civility suffers and with it unpleasantness follows.

In light of the Christian ideal of loving God and our neighbours, the book seeks to answer the questions, "Who is our neighbour?" and "How do we love our neighbour?".

It is possible to live without interaction with our neighbours, but it is not what Christians are called to do. We need to engage our society by contributing to good neighbourliness. This book offers some practical suggestions on how we can foster a kind and gracious society by the way we conduct ourselves as good neighbours.
