Faithful Friendships: Embracing Diversity in Christian Community
Friendship isn’t always given a lot of thought—and lately, it doesn’t get a lot of time and effort, either. But in a world of busy and isolated lives, in which friendships can too easily become shallow, tenuous, and homogeneous, Dana Robert insists that good friendships are a vital and transformative part of the Christian life—a mustard seed of the kingdom of God. She believes Christians have the responsibility—and opportunity—to be countercultural by making friends across cultural, racial, socioeconomic, and religious lines that separate people from each other.
In this book Robert tells the stories of Christians who, despite or even because of difficult circumstances, experienced friendship with people unlike themselves as “God with us,” as exile, as testimony, and as celebration.
Jesus was a friend to his disciples. Through Jesus’s life and the lives of his followers down through the ages, Faithful Friendships shows readers how friendship can become life-changing—and even worldchanging.

I would have loved to see Jerry Sittser’s new book, Resilient Faith, on this list. I have read it and it will be an incredibly helpful resource.
I’ve read a good chunk of Sittser’s book and agree that it’s excellent.
HOWEVER, its release date in in October, not September. 🙂
I haven’t done an in-depth survey yet of all the October theology book releases, but I’d bet there’s a good chance it will be on our October list.
Thanks for your reply. Full disclosure: Jerry is both a good friend and a trusted colleague at Whitworth. I love the guy, and his passionate and careful scholarship. Matt Bates is also a good friend (Whitworth grad). I did his wedding. One of the smartest people I’ve ever met.
Two additional works by top notch biblical scholars released in September.
1. Participating in Christ: Explorations in Paul’s Theology and Spirituality by Michael Gorman
2. The Symphony of Mission: Playing Your Part in God’s Work in the World by Michael Goheen
