Summary:
We live in a world where real friendship is hard to find. Suspicious of others and insecure about ourselves, we retreat into the safety of our small, self-made worlds. Now more than ever, it's easy to avoid people with whom we disagree or whose life experiences don't mirror our own. Safe among like-minded peers and digital "friends," we really don't have to engage with those who can challenge and enhance our limited  Read more...

Abstract:

We live in a world where real friendship is hard to find. Suspicious of others and insecure about ourselves, we retreat into the safety of our small, self-made worlds. Now more than ever, it's easy to avoid people with whom we disagree or whose life experiences don't mirror our own. Safe among like-minded peers and digital "friends," we really don't have to engage with those who can challenge and enhance our limited perspectives. Jesus models a much richer vision of friendship. Scott Sauls, pastor and teacher, invites you to discover the breadth of Christ's love through twenty-one meditations that inspire actively pursuing God's love by expanding your circle of friends. Yes, it's true: Real friendship is costly, and love does make us vulnerable. But without risk, our lives will remain impoverished. Diverse friendship can enrich your life and, in the process, reveal a better version of yourself.
