Why Spiritual Friendship?

Spiritual friendship is friendship that is rooted in Christ for the purpose of helping followers of Jesus grow in Christlikeness. Our model for spiritual friendship takes its cue from Jesus, who called together a community (Matthew 4:18–22) at the start of His public ministry.

The Christian life can be described as following Jesus in the company of friends. But how many of us have these vital and life-giving relationships in place.

Why Publishing?

It is all too easy to live a life that divides the sacred from the secular. But we believe that all of life is lived under God; that there is no such divide.

So we publish books to help followers of Jesus Christ embrace spiritual friendship, and live out their faith in the world. Our books help them connect the Word of God with the issues of daily life — truth for life — issues like busyness, young adulthood, marriage, parenting, growing old, work as worship to God, politics, corruption, to name a few.

You may or may not know that the word "gospel" means good news. As followers of Jesus we have been called to preach the good news of the Kingdom till the King returns. But how is the gospel good news to someone who wants to follow Christ but who is sexually attracted...
