This is a really helpful book. Its focus is on how, as Christians, our relationship with God is our most important relationship and how this should influence all the other relationships we have in life. It consists of nine short chapters on different aspects of relationships and does not shy away on the many difficulties that we as sinful humans encounter. Throughout the book there are helpful examples from the authors own life and experience and she consistently points the reader to God’s Word as our source of truth and guidance. In each chapter there are a number of ‘Stop’ points when the reader is asked to think about their own life in relation to what they have read and I found this really helpful to reflect on the relationships in my own life. While I enjoyed reading this by myself, I think this would be a really good book to read together with a friend or mentor, to encourage one another in following Jesus in the crucial area of life.
