Lenten meditations on Bible characters and relationships Vivid portraits of biblical characters and their relationships Encourages readers to reflect on the good and the bad in their own relationships ‘Bonus’ chapter for the week after Easter The Bible is full of stories about people in very human relationships. Some relationships are good, some are bad; some are healthy and fulfilling, others broken, dysfunctional and destructive. But they all have something in them that helps us to view our own relationships in a clearer light: to explore what they really mean to us, and think about what might happen if they are nurtured or left to decay. In this captivating Lent book, Judith Dimond paints vivid pen portraits of Bible characters whose relationships reflect common predicaments and emotions: love, friendship, rivalry, conflict, trust, hatred and fear, to name but a few. Running through all these relationships is a repeated pattern of wilderness, death and resurrection, and each daily meditation explores one or other element of this threefold pattern. With the author’s beautifully crafted prayers interspersed throughout, Friends, Foes and Families will help you to think prayerfully about significant moments of decision in your life, and surprise you into fresh ways of understanding and valuing those around you.
