Friendship at the Margins: Discovering Mutuality in Service and Mission

In our anonymous and dehumanized world the simple practice of friendship is radically countercultural But sometimes Christians inadvertently marginalize and objectify the very ones they most want to serve Chris Heuertz international director of Word Made Flesh and theologian and ethicist Christine Pohl show how friendship is a Christian vocation that can bring reconciliation and healing to our broken world They contend that unlikely friendships are at the center of an alternative paradigm for mission where people are not objectified as potential converts but encountered in a relationship of mutuality and reciprocity When we befriend those on the margins of society by practicing hospitality and welcome we create communities where righteousness and justice can be lived out Heuertz and Pohl s reflections offer fresh insight into Christian mission and what it means to be the church in the world today


Living on the Boundaries: Evangelical Women, Feminism and the Theological Academy
