Summary

God created us to live in bonds of society and friendship, not as lone rangers. The Christian faith presents friendship and hospitality not as luxuries but necessities. God does not save us in isolation but in community with other people. There is no possibility of living to the glory of God apart from godly companions.

In this audiobook, Steve Wilkins seeks to call us back to the joyous obligations of friendship and hospitality. Pastor Steve Wilkins (M.Div., Reformed Theological Seminary) is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and serves as pastor of Auburn Avenue Presbyterian Church, Monroe, Louisiana. He is the author of Call to Duty: The Sterling Nobility of Robert E. Lee (Cumberland House), and he and his wife, Wendy, have six children.

Excellent Book

Perhaps years ago a book like this would have seemed second nature to a lot of people. Unfortunately, today, we have lost many of the foundations of culture, friendship and hospitality that we took for granted. Especially since the coronavirus shut downs this book could become extremely helpful in re-establishing Christian community and fellowship.

Sounds judgmental to me.

First of all let me say that I am a Christian. However, this book comes across as being judgmental. If you’re looking to learn how to make friends, I don’t think you’re going to find it here. It could be the narrator that makes the author sounds rigid and judgmental.
