9780567080721: Friendship: Interpreting Christian Love

The love of friendship has, at the least, established its place as a necessary model of love in Christian tradition. This study shows the deep roots it has in Christian thought, among both ancient and modern writers, and is intended to facilitate further reflection on and exploration of its creative potential now and for the future.

About the Author:

Revd. Dr. E.D.H. (Liz) Carmichael, MBE is Chaplain and Tutor in Theology at St. John's College, Oxford.

Review:

"Liz Carmichael recognizes that much of our religious talk about fellowship or even love somehow misses the mark and threatens to become abstract. In this wonderful study, she argues, with a wealth of scholarship and of experience alike, that friendship is the really radical and transforming category we need to make our hopes concrete and to flesh out love in action, mindful of how Christ himself uses the language of friendship and how theologians have thought about faith and love as friendship with God. This is a treasury of insight and resource." —Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury (Rowan Williams Canterbury Press Norwich)

Article by Liz Carmichael about the book (possibly an extract?). (Church Times)

The book makes its case well, arguing persuasively that friendship has at least as much to say as sexual love does about the goal of Christian living, or as the experience of parental love which led Jesus to use Abba as his preferred name for God. (Paul Nicholson SJ The Way: A Review Of Christian Spirituality)

'...timely, stimulating and paradoxical book.' (Teresa Morgan Theology)

'...The book demonstrates well how human limitations mean that, in practice, people have to choose whom to love...The book makes its case well, arguing persuaisvely that friendship has a least as much to say as sexual love does about the goal of Christian living...at a time when many close-knit communities have broken down, and television shows like Friends respond to a nostalgic yearning for this kind of relationship, it is good to be reminded that Christianity has a lot to offer her.' (Paul Nicholson SJ The Way)
(Theological Best Books- mentioning (Fall/ Winter 2005))

Article by John Pridmore with quote from Liz Carmichael's book Friendship: A Way of Interpretating Christian Love (John Pridmore Church Times)

'[a] marvellous, rich and stimulating book.'~ Bernard Green, The Tablet (Bernard Green The American Spectator)

'Carmichael's book is a beautiful one, gathering the wisdom and insights of the ages in a learned and detailed but very accessible way....Friendship: Interpreting Christian Love is a masterpiece...a book to read and read again - to savour for a lifetime.'~ Canon Ivan Mann, Church Times (Canon Ivan Mann Church Times)

'Carmichael's comprehensive and careful survey has given those who follow in her wake the wherewithal to do more, and her book is certain to remind every reader of the pleasures of friendship.'~Lesley Smith, Journal of Ecclesiastical History, Vol 57, No. 1 (Lesley Smith)
