Becoming a friend of God and living in His love.
Many Christians view God as a solitary, distant figure to be feared. In A Friendship Like No Other, renowned spiritual director William A. Barry, SJ, explores the path to becoming a friend of God.
A Friendship Like No Other offers three well-supported and practical sections: prayerful exercises to help lead the reader to the conviction that God wants them for a friend; a close look at objections to this idea; and reflections on experiencing the presence of God and discerning those experiences. These sections are enhanced by brief, personal meditations woven throughout.
Grounded in biblical tradition but with clear focus on Ignatian spirituality, this book offers a fresh approach to becoming a friend of God and understanding this special relationship.
