In a frightening, violent world, it's difficult to love those who are different from us---and we often withdraw from others to protect ourselves. Inviting us to see and savor how big the love of God is, Sauls explores Jesus' model of a radically different type of friendship that embraces those we consider "outsiders."
Unabridged audio CD; approximately 6.5 hours; 5 CDs; read by Dean Gallagher.
Is real friendship too risky?
We live in a world where real friendship is hard to find. Suspicious of others and insecure about ourselves, we retreat into the safety of our small, self-made digital worlds. Tragically, even the church can become a place that reinforces this isolation. Jesus models a much richer vision of friendship. Scott Sauls, pastor and teacher, invites you to see the breadth of Christs love in this audio book, Befriend.
