Known: Finding Deep Friendships in a Shallow World by Dick and Ruth Foth is a book about the importance of friendship. The authors explore what it means to be a good friend, and they show how deep friendships can radically change our lives. The book also naturally allows readers to reflect on their relationships with God.
The authors have developed deep friendships in their own lives, and it is great that they have written a book about friendship’s vital role. I thought that Chapter 12, “Fighting Fair,” was especially interesting, because the Foths talked about five different options for resolving conflict. Throughout the book, the authors share good insight with their readers.
