Known

Finding Deep Friendships in a Shallow World

by Dick and Ruth Foth; Foreword by Mark Batterson

In an often shallow and fast-paced world, how can we really know and be known by another person?  How do we make true friends?
 
The Digital Age is all about change, but the need for true friendship never changes.  You are designed for real engagement with others---for affirmation that goes beyond a simple “like” on social media, for connection over meals, for hope and excitement about the future. Above all, you need to be known and accepted for who you are. But how do you  find and maintain this kind of friendship in a fluid and frenetic culture?
 
In Known, Dick and Ruth Foth offer inspiration and proven practices to build relationships through personal storytelling and affirmation. They draw on years of mentoring, rich relationships, and the model of Jesus to show you why friendship is one of the keys to a full life and the greatest gift we can give to each other.
