Grand Rapids: Brazos Press, Summary: This is an exploration of the place of friendship in the life of the Christian, particularly its importance for those who chose, either because of sexual orientation, or other reasons to live celibate, chaste lives/5.

      Inspiring account of John Wesley's theology, particularly with reference to living the christian life. It's difficult to read this book without being humbled by the extent of God's plan of salvation, which not only delivers us from the penalty of sin but actually "breaks the power of cancelled sin" and ushers us into fellowship with him, through his Son by the power of the Holy Spirit/5. In fact, in his book, The Presence of God in the Christian Life, Howard H. Knight III contends that Wesley’s “means of grace together form an interrelated pattern that enables a growing relationship with God”(4) which is what the Spiritual Disciplines also attempt to do. In fact, some would argue that “neglect of such practices impedes.

      Early in the book Wesley writes, “Friendship is a good and godly love in its own right, just as worthy of attention, nurture and respect as any other form of Christian affection. That is what the Christian tradition has mainly said and that’s what I want to say – . Wesley also had a unique understanding of how we approach belief. While all belief is grounded in scripture, and scripture is primary in matters of belief, scripture is mediated and interpreted through two thousand years of Christian tradition, the God-given gift of human reason and our ongoing experience.
