The Faces of Friendship  Oct 14, 2008
The Faces of Friendship

By Robert Davis Hughes, III "

Many thanks to Wipf and Stock for bringing us a new edition of Isabel Anders' fine work on the place of friendship in the spiritual life of a Christian. Except for a new preface, the text is unchanged from the earlier edition.

Anders, as is her pattern, writes with a deeply reflective but highly approachable style about friendship as a kind of bridge between love of God and love of neighbor. The book is a sustained theological reflection on many of her own experiences of friendship, from her family of origin, to her children, to her mentor, Madeline L'Engle, to God. In the process she shows how an acquaintance with scripture, classics such as Aelred of Rievaulx's Spiritual Friendship, contemporary theologies of friendship with God through Jesus, and a broad sampling of contemporary spiritual writers can deepen our own experience of the friendships that lead finally to the blessed community that is the Commonwealth of Heaven.

Often deeply moving, the portraits Anders draws are also honest and fully fleshed out. The tragic realities of life, including death and the failure of relationship, receive their due. Underneath all, however, is Anders' own deep faith that, as Simone Weil taught us, these friendships are a kind of sacrament in which we experience God's friendship for us and grow in our friendship with God.

I gladly recommend this book to readers who do not yet know it and would appreciate a very fine theological reflection on one of life's most practical and profound opportunities for spiritual growth.
