Grounded in biblical tradition but with a clear focus on Ignatian spirituality, A Friendship Like No Other offers a fresh approach to becoming a friend of God. Eschewing the idea that God is a distant, solitary figure to be feared, renowned spiritual director William A. Barry, SJ, provides us with all the tools needed to become a friend of God.
A Friendship Like No Other offers three well-supported and practical sections: prayerful exercises to help lead us to the conviction that God wants our friendship; a close look at objections to this idea; and reflections on experiencing the presence of God and discerning those experiences. Brief, personal meditations are woven throughout.
