Publisher's Description

What does biblical friendship look like?


Developing and sustaining friendships takes effort and commitment, especially when you re new to the area. In her article on cultivating friendships after a move, author Cindy Crosby provides practical suggestions for starting up new friendships and keeping in touch with old friends, no matter the distance. She suggests, both directly and indirectly, that the time and effort necessary to establish and maintain friendships is worth the investment.This study asks: What is the value of friendship? What can be learned from biblical examples of friendship? What is the cost of isolating yourself from others? What do we learn about God through friendship? What does the world see in our friendships?
