A theology of spirituality, community, and society. Brian Edgar has identified an element crucial to the corporate spirituality, meaningful discipleship, and effective mission of the church in our day. Friendship (with God and others) is a category that goes to the very nature of relationships. Edgar uses the wide-ranging perspectives of biblical scholarship, theology, ethics, philosophy, and sociology in God is Friendship to develop our understanding of friendship.
