Overview The practice and power of spiritual friendship.
Publishers Description An illuminating example of friendship as a vital way God answers our need for guidance, encouragement, affirmation, and correction.Most of the time, what we need to help us through the struggles in our lives is not the advice of an expert but the wisdom of a friend.

The topics covered in this warm and highly personal correspondence are broad and varied, but one thing comes through with constancy and clarity: there is great value in a wise, experienced friend to help us see more clearly and to strengthen our growth in faith and godliness.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wisdom Of Each Other?
Thought provoking book Oct 19, 2008
I really enjoyed this book. I will enjoy discussing it with our book club. It gave me a lot to chew on.
The sanest book I've read for ages Apr 10, 2000
The Wisdom of Each Other is highly readable and packed with gems of insight into the work of the Spirit and the silliness of what often passes for spirituality. In fact, Peterson differentiates penetratingly simply between Religion, what we do and Spirituality, what the Spirit does in us. He affirms the laity in their importance and gives their vocations equal status with clergy. In a series of letters from a long time friend and Christian to a mate who has rediscovered faith in Jesus, the author refreshingly takes a lot of the hype out of modern religion and points the reader towards the originator and sustainer of the life of Christ within. Friends, Peterson maintains. have much to offer each other in pressing on to maturity. Highly recommended. A good gift.
An exchange of letters between two male friends. Jun 26, 1999
This is a really pretty book: through an exchange of letters, the reader sees the development of two men growing, and leaning on each other for strength, in Christ.
Christian books tend to be heavy, so this serves as a good prop, right underneath your pillow, so you can peak into these wise letters, or to protect you from bad dreams I suppose.
Must Read! Mar 23, 1999
An excellent book. Exposing the deep need we have for each other. Addressing the critical issue of relationship over religion.
