A Book Review on Friendship With God by Trevor Hudson

Women of Reverence would like to thank Kim Hough for her Book Review.

The Book write up:

Are you open to re-imagining your relationship with God as a friendship? Do you want to be transformed into the person God wants you to be? Friendship with God transforms us. As we learn to trust God as our Divine Friend, it has a transforming effect on our whole lives. It affects how we pray, our relationships with each other and the way we understand our everyday lives. It changes the way we think and feel, what we desire and long for, the way we see each other and how we seek to live our lives in the world. We could say our friendship with God creates the climate in which you and I become the people God wants us to be.

Book Review By:

Kim Hough

Get to know me:

I am a 42year old wife and mother of 3, living in Modderfontein, Johannesburg. I work for my husband as a bookkeeper and I fellowship at Hop City Church in Edenglen. I love to exercise and I am a part time student hoping to qualify as an accountant.

What did you learn from this book:

Trevor Hudson’s book on Friendship with God showed me a new perspective of the relationship that God desires to have with us, and that is friendship. It answered questions such as who do I imagine God is? Especially when life feels like it is crashing down. What relationship do I have with God? Is it one of master and slave, or friendship? If God created us in His image, and we as humans desire intimacy, connection and friendship, does this mean that God desires friendship with us?

Some things that were highlighted to me:

We can look to Jesus to show us what God is really like,

the role of honest prayer in this relationship,

the importance of forming significant relationships around us,

acts of mercy done to those who suffer is a direct kindness to Christ,

and how to make decisions that corresponds with what Jesus wants for our lives.

What did you enjoy about this book:

This book also goes beyond just our personal friendship with God, but how we can partner with God in making His dream a greater reality in the world around us: in our friendships, in our places of our daily work, and in our broken communities.

What I really liked about this book was that all points made were backed up by scripture and practical exercises were given.

Who would you recommend read this book?

I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to have a deeper relationship with God and to those who long to know Jesus as their divine friend.
