Abstract:

"The church stands firm against culture on many issues of sexuality... but misses this one! Society says we are merely sexual beings and should embrace this, and in the church we use this same view as an excuse to distrust and avoid each other! We shy away from healthy friendship, and even our siblingship in Christ, in the name of purity and reputation... but is this what we are called to do? Aimee Byrd reminds us that the way to stand against culture is not by allowing it to drive us apart it is by seeking the brother-and-sister closeness we are privileged to have as Christians. Here is a plan for true, godly friendship between the sexes that embraces the family we truly are in Christ and serves as the exact witness the watching world needs" --Publisher description.
