Item description for Friendship Is A Verb (In A Hurting World) by Stuart Wood...
Overview Stuart was helped through serious illness by a gifted counsellor (therapist), during which time he gained great insight into thoughts and behaviours, especially our own sense of security and worth, which lead to good and bad relationships. Friendship is a Verb (in a Hurting World) explores friendship, relationship, integrity, and consistency in our behaviour. Stuart brings key issues alive to challenge and encourage readers into deeper, lasting, safer relationships. This is not just another book of words. It is forged from real life. Through poetry, thoughts, and quotes, Stuart speaks up for those who have no voice and challenges those in positions of power and influence to carefully measure their words and actions. Read this book and you will understand that "relationship" and "friendship" are not objects (nouns); they must be verbs (actions) for us to present a real picture of God to our hurting world.

A Real Gem May 18, 2004
I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I opened this book, but what a Gem it turned out to be. A collection of Prose and Poetry written within a range of styles around the themes of friendship and relationships.
The book is written with an aching honesty about the author's experiences, that immediately draws you in, and rather than just identifying with the author, begins to make you really think about your own life and your own actions and intentions. At first glance it may appear deceptively simple and almost naïve, but in actuality this book uses this simplicity as a method of stealthily delivering the point behind our own blasé and defensive attitudes. You soon start to realise this book has a lot of levels and that each reveals something else you hadn't consciously realised about your attitudes or feelings.
This book is very therapeutic, especially if you've ever been hurt or let down by others in this arena.
Overall, if you want to be challenged and provoked into thinking about the whole subject of friendship take a chance on this - A superb read!
