Drew Hunter on Men and Friendship

Each week this season on By Faith, I’m talking with a guest about the ins and outs of friendship. As I wrote about in my book, Messy Beautiful Friendship, friendship isn’t easy for anyone; it takes time, intentionality, and lots of grace. And sometimes we have to navigate complexities and hurts in friendship that leave us uncertain and crushed. I’m right there with you, and my guests are here to help us think through it all.

The season so far has focused pretty exclusively on women and how we relate to one another relationally. But I think friendship for men is a needed topic and discussion in this age when men are often more isolated and alone than ever. I see how men around me in my life desire friendship just as much as I do but often experience different obstacles than I do in forming those friendships.

So today I invited pastor and author Drew Hunter to join me on the show to help us think through friendship for men. How is it the same as friendship between women, and how are male friendships different? If we’re married, how can we help our husbands prioritize friendship? If you are a man yourself, I hope this will help you think through your own relationships and take necessary steps to cultivate friendship in your life.
Drew has a new book out called Made For Friendship. It's an excellent resource for both men and women on the subject of biblical friendship, and I was happy to endorse it.
