We can indeed obtain and sustain the Christian friendships that God promises us if we follow him.
MCLEAN, Va. (PRWEB) November 11, 2014
In her eye-opening, insightful new book, “The Importance of Christian Friendships” (published by Xlibris), Beth Gable Hicks explores how Christian friendships are different, or at least should be different, and how people can reach out to others in that friendship. She describes how no one needs to feel alone, especially when Christ is at the center of relationships.
In today’s society, the marriage rate is declining, the divorce rate is ascending and people are waiting longer to get married. These facts, coupled with the reality of a mobile society, magnify the need for Christian friends – friends who will see each other through good times and bad, friends who will stand by each other in an increasingly confusing world, and friends whose relationships with each other are sustained by the love of Christ.
“My hope is that, after reflecting on the scriptures cited in the book, the reader will feel strengthened and encouraged,” author Hicks explains. “We can indeed obtain and sustain the Christian friendships that God promises us if we follow him.”
