A Friendship Like No Other: Experiencing God's Amazing Embrace

A Friendship Like No Other: Experiencing God's Amazing Embrace




author/Fr. William A Barry

Live in the love of a God who desires a relationship with you.
Throughout A Friendship Like No Other, renowned spiritual director William A. Barry, SJ, explores the premise that God wants to relate to us as a close friend. Barry has contemplated this idea--radical for many Christians--throughout his lifetime, and he explains that it actually traces back to the "developing revelation of God contained in the Bible." 

A Friendship Like No Other offers three well-supported and practical sections: prayerful exercises to help lead you to the conviction that God wants your 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. 

Grounded in biblical tradition and with a clear focus on Ignatian spirituality, this book offers a fresh, heart-changing approach to living joyfully in the freedom of the divine embrace.

William A. Barry, SJ, is a veteran spiritual director who is currently serving as tertian director for the New England Province of the Society of Jesus. He is the author of several popular books about Ignatian spirituality, including A Friendship Like No Other, Praying the Truth, and Changed Heart, Changed World.
