Becoming the Friend of God

by Marc A. Dupont

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
‘Becoming the Friend of God’ is devoted to knowing the person of God as one’s best friend. Four situations in the life of Abraham, called by God His ‘friend’, are examined from the standpoint of what characteristics qualify one for friendship. Each of those four scenarios are applicable to the life of all who truly desire to know God as the greatest friend possible.
Abraham, the patriarch, of both Jews and Christians, was called by God His ‘friend’. ‘Becoming the Friend of God’ takes an in-depth look at four critical aspects and situations in Abraham’s life and how he responded to the person of God. The ability of friends to speak and listen to one another as friends, and the friendship factors of sacrificial love and entertaining one another are examined. In that Abraham is the only person in the Bible to be called God’s friend in both of the Testaments strongly suggests that we have need of gleaning from his life in order to know God on a friendship basis as opposed to merely a friendly relationship. The book is an invitation to know Christ Jesus to the depth that His words “a greater friend has no one, than one who lays down his life” invite us to. While not being a classic theological work, the book is very Biblical, simple, and profound. Written for both those who have been a believer of God for decades and for those simply curious about God. ‘Becoming the Friend of God’ will prove to be great tool and fun read for many.
