Book Review: befriend by Sauls


I have struggled much of my life with my understanding of friendship. I think my problem came from the influence of pop culture 90's television shows. I would base my picture of friendship on that. I could never wrap my mind around a biblical view of friendship. This is until now. This book has finally helped me gain a glimpse into what biblical friendship actually is.

This book not only gave me a definition of biblical friendship but it also gave me various pictures and examples based on the life of Christ and others. It was supremely helpful. My life has been changed and moved by this book. I have been affirmed and challenged. I am thankful for both.

The best way to read this book is with a group of people. There are a few things to discuss at the end of each chapter and community would benefit from discussing these together. It would be life changing for the group.

I think every Christian should take the time to read this book. I also think non-Christians should read this book to get an insight into what Christian friendship is to look like. I think it would be a fire hydrant of surprising grace. I think it would draw them in. This book needs to be discussed.

I received a copy of this book at no charge from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.

You can get a copy of this book from here.
