I thought I’d start by sharing the first line: I was introduced to God through my friends.
Created for Communion: Discovering God’s Design for Biblical Friendship is about coming alongside each other and uses Biblical relationships to show us how to give and receive that side-by-side love—even in our human imperfections.
As believers, we have communion with each other because Jesus’ death and resurrection made a way for us to have fellowship with God. Even before God sent Jesus, he showed his love through His people—people who had friends and were friends.
Each chapter in Created for Communion explores a different Biblical relationship, showing how those friendships transformed each person. Study the remarkable
examples set by David and Jonathan, Ruth and Naomi, Jonah and his friends, Mary and Elizabeth, Jesus and his disciples, the friends of the paralytic man, and Paul and Timothy (and others!)
In this book on Biblical friendship, we’ll learn how God has created us for communion, allowing His people—then and now—to befriend one another in holy ways.
Here on launch morning, I am waiting for Amazon to sync the paperback and Kindle versions and move them from pre-order status. Hopefully, that happens at any moment. You can also buy from Barnes & Noble. I also have copies at my house, if you’d like to buy one from me directly. Those are $10 locally or $15 shipped — and, yes, they’re autographed. I accept PayPal, Venmo, and cash.
