Published by NavPress
Friendship is one of God’s great gifts. But true friends aren’t always easy to find or keep, especially in our fast-paced, mobile society. Loneliness is epidemic, even for believers—but it doesn’t have to be. This practical, grace-filled book will help you:
• build a life that encourages friendship
• initiate and maintain even long-distance friendships
• rescue struggling relationships
• nurture marriage and family friendships
• take your church friendships beyond the coffee hour

Includes helpful questions for discussion personally or in groups.
