Product Description

"I believe He Calls Me Friend is one of the most important books of our day, from one of the last living prophets of the Civil Rights Era."

–Nick Hall, Founder of Pulse movement, author of Reset: Jesus Changes Everything

What if friendship is the key to changing the world?

As a follow-up to his landmark work One Blood, Dr. John Perkins helps readers take the next step to make justice and love a reality. Sometimes people ask Dr. Perkins how to make a difference in the world, his simple answer is this, "Be friends. First with God. Then with others—every kind of other you can think of. Because the simple, powerful, messy, explosive truth is: the world is changed one friendship at a time." In He Calls Me Friend, Dr. Perkins argues that God is not distant and disconnected. He is the Friend who woos us, died for us, and lives within us. This Friend fills our empty places and shows us how to be friends with others. Along the way, Dr. Perkins shares his life experiences, explores biblical stories, and features profiles from several of his own personal friendships.

In a world that's growing increasingly fragmented, isolated, and lonely, discover the power of friendship from a true expert in the art.
