We live in an age where 'friendships' are prolific and contact is constant. But are all of these people really our friends? The bond of Christian friendship is different. Built on our unity with Christ, these are real life, flesh and blood relationships - both sacred and sacrificial. Christina Fox offers insight into how we can weave friendships that last through any season and reflect Christ to the world.
In her latest book, Closer Than A Sister, Christina Fox through the use of biblical teaching, personal example, and practical teaching takes her readers by the hand and guides them through what the biblical and normal Christian life is like in the local church and outside of it.
Writing from years of intentional relationship-building, Christina Fox's words are wise and challenging. Fox lays out the priority of community, describes its beautiful contours, and gives her readers practical help to overcome its ever-present obstacles.
Rather than attempting to survive on surface-level friendships, Closer Than a Sister shows us how to live in biblical community with one another.
Christina Fox has written a beautiful and helpful book outlining a biblical definition of friendship and pointing us towards the one Friend who will never leave us or forsake us. If you want to become a better "sister-friend" or find yourself longing for a friend, this book will encourage your soul.
No other kind of friendship can offer the strength of Christian friendship. In Closer Than A Sister, Christina Fox offers insight into how we can weave the cords of our friendships to last through any season.
In a day when discussions concerning women in the church and women's ministries, in particular, are at their zenith, Christian Fox has done us an enormous service by wedding a sound biblical theology of union with Christ to a sound biblical theology of fellowship--particularly as it relates to women in the church.
Everything Christina writes is clear on the gospel and passionately explains the truth that Jesus is both Lord and Christ and what that means for our lives.
Closer than a Sister skillfully blends the glorious life-giving colors with the lackluster life-taking contrasts into a vivid portrait of gospel friendship.
Here's a book that will encourage you in the beauty of Christ-centered relationships, and challenge you to take faith-driven steps of love in friend-ing others. Closer Than a Sister comforted me with the depths of Jesus' friendship for me, and compelled me outward with a renewed desire to be a godly friend to others.
In Closer than a Sister, Christina Fox has painted a picture of biblical, God-honoring relationships among women in the church. Her honesty, transparency, and centeredness in God's Word make this a helpful read.
