Men commonly experience life without deep, meaningful friendships. The aim of this book is to help men achieve high performance friendship. What is high performance friendship? The authors provide an eight-point litmus test that they apply to their own high performance friendship:
1. Take the opportunity to provide selfless acts on behalf of the other.
2. Feel comfortable sharing inner-most thoughts, yet respect the other's private thoughts.
3. Trust the other with that which he holds dear.
4. Support each other when one falls short or fails, and readily grant forgiveness.
5. Appreciate and accept heartfelt constructive criticism.
6. Truly celebrate each other's success without jealousy or envy.
7. Sustain the relationship in spite of distance or time.
8. Refrain from making or tolerating any disparaging remarks about the other, expecially behind his back.
How can we achieve high performance friendship? Why not consider how Christ treated his male friends during His human experience? Could there be a better possible example? This book provides stories and principles of high performance friendship by drawing on the exemplary manner in which Christ treated His friends during His time on earth.
