-- A biblical view that shows how human friendships lead to friendship with God.
-- Help for getting past superficial "acquaintanceship" and developing authenticity.
-- Practical advice for handling friendship problems.

We Struggle to Find People With Similar Interests or to get past the superficial to real depth. Sometimes we find that a good friendship has gone bad. Or a friend moves away. We long for a group of friends we can be at home with -- in a way that only seems to be real on television.

Drawing on his own experience and that of his friends, Keith Anderson addresses the hard questions about friendship. Digging into the riches of Scripture, he gives us a vision for deep relationships that draw us closer to God. He shows us how to learn to care for one another. This book will encourage you to take the risk of friendship -- and enrich your life.
