    Described as a brief survey How Should We Develop Biblical Friendships? explores friendships from the perspective of Scriptures and from few characters throughout church history and how we can come to understand biblical friendships today Moreover the book provides ten practical ways Christians can work on developing such friendships It is definitely a helpful booklet on an important yet almost lost aspect of our lives
