Befriend: Create Belonging in an Age of Judgment, Isolation, and Fear
We’re sorry but you missed this offer. It is no longer free or a deal.
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 worlds. Now more than ever, it’s easy to avoid people with whom we disagree or whose life experiences don’t mirror our own. Safe among like-minded peers and digital “friends,” we really don have to engage with those who can challenge and enhance our limited perspectives. Tragically, even the church can become a place that minimizes diversity and reinforces isolation.
Jesus models a much richer vision for friendship. In BeFriend, popular teacher, Scott Sauls, invites us to see and savor the broad and deep love of God. In twenty-one eloquent meditations on what God’s love can look like in our everyday lives, Scott invites us to expand our circle of friends.
Scott has met too many people whose first impulse is to fence off their lives with relational barriers that only end up starving their own souls.
Yes, it’s true: Real friendship is costly. Love does make us vulnerable. But, without risk, our lives will remain impoverished.
Join Scott in BeFriend as he summons you toward diverse friendships that can enrich your life and, in the process, reveal a better version of yourself.
