“befriend” by Scott Sauls, book review

“befriend” create belonging in an age of judgment, isolation, and fear
by Scott Sauls, book review

In our fast paced lives, being a friend has almost become something to check off on our to-do list. Author Scott Sauls has written a book that describes how as Christians we should be friends to all those around us. Being a friend should be very intentional, in his opinion, and very purposeful. It is also very Biblical.

This book is divided into chapters by topic and the reader is challenged to look at folks in their world a bit differently. He also describes how Jesus was a friend to those around Him while on earth. Each chapter has several personal examples which give the reader a much better idea of how this specific type of friendship will play out in real life. At the end of each chapter, there is a short summary, scripture references and discussion questions.

The book was easy to read and understand. I appreciated the examples, as they made it much easier for me to see how these types of friendships would work in real life. This would be a very good book to use for small group discussion with older youth, college students or adults.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
