The love of friendship has, at the least, established its place as a necessary model of love in Christian tradition. This study shows the deep roots it has in Christian thought, among both ancient and modern writers, and is intended to facilitate further reflection on and exploration of its creative potential now and for the future.
'Dr Carmichael has produced a most valuable and scholarly book. ... Not only is hers the first book to pull together a wealth of material from the past ... but she has spotted that the discussion of friendship is a genuinely new phenomenon in twentieth-century theology.'--Sanford Lakoff "Scottish Journal Of Theology "
