Publishers Description
You were not meant to walk alone. Many of us struggle to forge deep relationships with God and other people. Modern society has isolated us as rugged individuals, deceiving us into thinking we can make it through life on our own. Individualism has likewise shaped the pattern of Christian discipleship, privatizing faith and separating us from fellow believers. But we come to know God best when others help us on the way. And our friendships develop best when we seek after God together. What would it look like to pursue God not by ourselves but in the company of friends? According to the model of the New Testament, spiritual transformation takes place in the context of Christian community. By unpacking the Gospel narratives of Jesus' ministry with his disciples, Richard Lamb demonstrates how discipleship develops within the shared community life of groups of Christians. He explores a range of topics--such as spiritual friendship, hospitality, leadership, service, conflict, forgiveness and mission--in light of Christian community. Engaging stories from real-life experience show how people can form one another spiritually when their lives are tumbled against one another. If you long for more of God, deeper friendships or both, this book will help you on the journey. Discover the transforming power of discipleship in community. Join the pursuit of God in the company of friends.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An important book for Christian living   Mar 10, 2008
It seems there is an increasing lack of authentic friendships in our society today. Life is so fast and so filled, that we don't take the time to develop meaningful friendships. In this important book, the author argues the case for the necessity of friendships to a Christian life well-lived. Along the way, the author uses personal stories and scripture to present valuable lessons in both the "why" and "how" of friendships. Whether you are a member of a small group, ministry team, church, or none of the above, you will benefit from this book.
wonderful book  Jan 22, 2006
I probably shouldn't be writing this review, since i'm in the middle of the book right now, but I have to say it's been one of the more influential books I've read so far. If you are planning to go into ministry, especially, I would read this book. It has been invaluable in motivating, encouraging and exhorting me to move past superficial relationships with my friends and the youth i minister to, and to really pursue a deepening, God-pursuing relationship with them. The scriptures are really relevant and the examples are pretty realistic and applicable. Definately read this book.
Dr. J. Robert (Bobby) Clinton, Professor of Leadership  Oct 20, 2003
"Four things stand out for me in this book. One, Rich has terrific insights into the various Scriptures, which form the basis for findings in each chapter. Two, Rich has real-life illustrations liberally sprinkled throughout his flow of input. He is very observant in life and has experienced the things he writes about. Three, Rich has a passion about interdependence in the body. He also uses tables and diagrams to help break up narrative and summarize findings. And finally, the book is very browsable. Any chapter can be read with profit apart from reading the whole of the book. My favorite chapter was chapter ten, 'Reconciliation and Forgiveness Among Friends.' The insights into Abigail were outstanding. It is clear that Rich is modeling for us throughout the whole book. He is himself one who is in the 'pursuit of God in the company of friends.' "
