This book for both seekers and practicing Christians highlights the importance of friendship for human community.
Beginning with stories of friendship in biblical accounts and the teachings of the early leaders of the church, Brother John describes friendship as the basis for community throughout the world and at Taizé, an international ecumenical community that draws thousands of young people from around the globe together in worship and prayer.
In today's world, with many institutions in crisis, friendship may have more significance than other kinds of human relations. A worldwide network of friends in Jesus who live out their Christian faith has incredible potential to change the world for the better.
