Paulist Press, 2003 - 127 pagini
This book of stories examines the broad map of human love and friendship from the perspective of the Bible to conclude that love's often difficult path can be smoothed with God's help, if we muster the courage and the faith to ask. In support, the author offers classical stories from Hebrew and Christian scriptures, among many--Boaz and Ruth, Tobias and Sarah, Jonathan and David, Peter and Jesus, Joseph and his brothers, Jacob and Rachel and Leah--stories of emotional relationships both constant and supportive, faithful and content, envious and vengeful, sensuous and pure, those of families, friends, siblings, husbands and wives, and disciples. Students of the Bible, and the general public, will find this an instructive and compelling work, which comes complete with reflection questions, suitable for individual and group study, at the end of each chapter.
