When Jesuit priest Bill Clarke finds himself sharing a tiny room at the Ignatius Farm Community in Guelph with Byron Dunn, he doesn't think it will work out. Byron is a hard-drinking former trucker and prison inmate who has shot off half his own face in a failed suicide attempt. Yet, over 13 years, through many ups and downs, the two become close friends. This autobiographical book is about the journey of transformation taken by this Jesuit priest to find new meaning in his vocation. This is a rare "spiritual growth" book because it appears to be about Byron's journey from violence to grace, but it is also about a priest's need for a constant re-examination of faith in action. At times humorous, at times deeply moving, The Face of Friendship is an incredible story of hope, healing, transformation, and grace that can teach all of us something about friendship, acceptance, and compassion.
