No other kind of friendship can offer the strength of Christian friendship. In Closer Than A Sister, Christina Fox offers insight into how we can weave the cords of our friendships to last through any season. Like all good gifts, Christian friendship is to be sought and stewarded with wisdom and grace. The benchmark of lesser friendships will not do. You hold in your hands a primer on how to weave (and allow yourself to be woven into) that blessed tie that binds. (Jen Wilkin ~ Author of Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds)
Closer than a Sister skillfully blends the glorious life-giving colors with the lackluster life-taking contrasts into a vivid portrait of gospel friendship. (Karen Hodge ~ PCA Coordinator of Womens Ministry; Author of Transformed: Life-taker to Life-giver)
Here's a book that will encourage you in the beauty of Christ-centered relationships, and challenge you to take faith-driven steps of love in friend-ing others. Closer Than a Sister comforted me with the depths of Jesus' friendship for me, and compelled me outward with a renewed desire to be a godly friend to others. (Ellen Mary Dykas ~ Women's Ministry Director, Harvest USA; Author of Sexual Sanity for Women: Healing from Sexual and Relational Brokenness and Sex and the Single Girl: Smart Ways to Care for Your Heart)
Christina Fox has written a beautiful and helpful book outlining a biblical definition of friendship and pointing us towards the one Friend who will never leave us or forsake us. If you want to become a better "sister-friend" or find yourself longing for a friend, this book will encourage your soul. (Courtney Reissig ~ Author: 'The Accidental Feminist: Restoring Our Delight in God's Good Design' and 'Glory in the Ordinary: Why Your Work in the Home Matters to God')
