In this Facebook age of “friending” anyone and everyone, it is incumbent on the church to articulate a rich and accessible theology of friendship for the world. Dr. Brian Edgar has done it in God is Friendship: A Theology of Spirituality, Community and Society. The book explores friendship as spiritual formation, as the life of the church, and as a public good. From an exploration of the inner relationships of the Trinity to the outworking of the church’s mission, this book will frame and reframe a thoroughgoing theology of friendship for clergy, academic, and lay audiences. Expect to be stretched and challenged while being anchored and inspired. It will no doubt add value to all your relationships.
Dr. Brian Edgar is a Public Theologian and Professor of Theological Studies at Asbury Theological Seminary. He taught previously at the Melbourne School of Theology and has served as the Director of Public Theology for the Australian Evangelical Alliance.
