An illuminating example of friendship as a vital way God answers our need for guidance, encouragement, affirmation, and correction.Most of the time, what we need to help us through the struggles in our lives is not the advice of an expert but the wisdom of a friend. Through this series of eloquent letters written to a life-long friend, author Eugene Peterson demonstrates friendship as a means to Christian maturity. The topics covered in this warm and highly personal correspondence are broad and varied, but one thing comes through with constancy and clarity: there is great value in a wise, experienced friend to help us see more clearly and to strengthen our growth in faith and godliness.
The Wisdom of Each Other demonstrates the life-changing value of friendships. With originality and warmth, Eugene Peterson opens our eyes to one of God's greatest and most overlooked provisions for counsel, encouragement, and renewal -- honest, Christ-centered relationships.
