Friendship of Christ: Exploring the Humanity of Jesus Christ

human need for friendship is raised to the supernatural level in Robert Hugh Benson 's timeless illustration of the greatest friendship anyone could ever possess. In The Friendship of Christ, first published in 1912, the Catholic convert son of an Archbishop of Canterbury shows how anyone can achieve a deeper relationship with God the Son. The ook shows how Christ works in the soul of those who seek him, in his public life, and in the historical examples given in the Gospels. " There is one supreme friendship to which all human friendship points, " writes Benson, " one ideal friend in whom we find, perfect and complete, that for which we look in the faces of our human lovers.
