Reclaiming Real Friendship In a Culture of Confusion
Author: Kelly Needham
For many of us, whether we come from broken homes, are single and haven’t yet formed our own family, or are simply living far away from our relatives, friends step in and play the role of family in our day-to-day lives. We turn to them for a sense of belonging, identity, and stability, resulting in modern concepts like “frientimacy,” “bromances,” and BFFs we call “our person.” But what is friendship according to Jesus? And how should our faith affect it?
In Friend-ish, Kelly Needham challenges us to raise our expectation of what true friendship looks like. With a clear view of Scripture and been-there perspective, she helps us identify unhealthy signs, tackles the stumbling blocks to genuine friendship, and reorients us toward the purposeful relationships each of us craves. Our friendships really can be more than what the world offers; they can be satisfying, joy-filled, godly relationships that not only change our lives now but have the power to change eternity.
