Spiritual Friendship is a timely gift the reader will quickly take to heart." Paul J. Wadell, professor of theology and religious studies, St. Norbert College; author of Becoming Friends: Worship, Justice, and the Practice of Christian Friendship "This book is a rare find! Using a unique story-driven format, God without Religion dismantles common religious misconceptions, revealing a hopeful approach to what unites us rather than what divides us, the true meaning of walking by the Spirit, the facts about judgment, rewards, and God’s discipline, and the problem with the popular challenge to “die to self.”.

Since the Scriptures clearly teach that God is love (1 John & 16) and the God of love (2 Corinthians ), our study will be structured overall according to the different dimensions of love which God shows to men. As we consider each of these dimensions of God's love, we will also seek to determine what our own duty is to our fellow men. The spiritual purpose of family life is to expand one's consciousness through cultivation of purifying divine love and friendship that is not conditioned by sex or any selfish motivation. Friendship is vital in a marital relationship.

Uniformity with God's Will. by St. Alphonsus Liquori. Written in the 's this book explains how God knows everything including what is best for us.
