Abstract:

"Throughout A Friendship Like No Other, renowned spiritual director William A. Barry, SJ, explores the premise that God wants to relate to us as a close friend. Barry has contemplated this idea - radical for many Christians - throughout his lifetime, and he explains that it actually traces back to the 'developing revelation of God contained in the Bible.' A Friendship Like No Other offers three well-supported and practical sections; prayerful exercises to help lead you to the conviction that God wants your friendship; a close look at objections to this idea; and reflections on experiencing the presence of God and discerning those experiences. Brief, personal meditations are woven throughout. Grounded in biblical tradition and with a clear focus on Ignatian spirituality, this book offers a fresh, heart-changing approach to living joyfully in the freedom of the divine embrace"--Jacket.
