Apartheid is in the Church.  In the name of integrity, walls now exist that keep us from meaningful brother-sister friendship in Christ. These divisions are not Biblical nor these rules in line with Church History at its best. Contrary to their promises, we are not safer from sexual immorality by adhering to them - we are more at risk.  In this 2nd edition - 1st edition entitled 'Can Christian Men and Women be Friends?' - Jones has refined and added more material for greater clarity and impact. The new cover is by sampillardesign.com Chapter subjects include: mixed friendships in Church history, practical and pastoral issues, 'emotional adultery', Freud, Scripture survey and one on friendships in heaven.

Review:

'Joshua Jones shows us how the gospel transforms relationships and where secular psychology has distorted the community Christ came to create.' -Sinead Norman, student minister, Germany
 'In this superb book Joshua brings together Biblical ethics, years of experience, and a pastor's heart to an issue that divides many and causes pain.' -Rev. Adam C. Young, England 'I'm not comfortable with the idea of avoiding something because it might go bad. Joshua talks about this whole subject open and honestly.' -Pastor Kevin Neville, Canada
