Hugh Black was quoted as saying "The subject of friendship is less thought of among us now than it was in the old world. This charming little book is full of wisdom Black felt would help young men in their future relationships

Hugh Black was quoted as saying "The subject of friendship is less thought of among us now than it was in the old world. Marriage has come to mean infinitely more. Communion with God in Christ has become to multitudes the primal fact of life. Nevertheless the need for friendship remains. This charming little book is full of wisdom Black felt would help young men in their future relationships. Chapters include The Miracle of Friendship, The Culture of Friendship. The Fruits of Friendship, The Choice of Friendship, The Eclipse of Friendship, The Wreck of Friendship, The Renewing of Friendship, The Limits of Friendship, and The Higher Friendship.

Hugh Black was obviously a good person and thus, he is a little naive, or maybe a tad too generous toward human nature. This short book written in 1898 is chock full of timeless wisdom on friendship (and life in general). Or maybe our world has become worse since this book was written. Certainly, the word "friend" has been co-opted by social media to the point of meaninglessness and relationships based on proximity seem to be short-lived. It covers every aspect and form of friendship including the ultimate friendship - with God. I have read it several times and given away several copies to friends.

A CLASSIC GUIDE TO FINDING, RESTORING AND BUILDING LASTING FRIENDSHIPS. ? The high ideal to which friendship was held by the ancient writers, like Plato and Aristotle, seems to be an obsolete sentiment today. Western society, with its busyness and self-centredness, to many people, feels like a cold and lonely place. In this culture of cynicism and malaise Hugh Black directs our attention to the importance of friendship and the blessing that it can be. With elegantly poignant prose, Black draws on ancient writings, poetry and the Scriptures, helping us to rediscover the miracle of genuine friendship and to understand the care and keeping of such treasure. Along the way, Black addresses the challenges and responsibilities associated with friendship including the tragic consequences of eclipsed or wrecked friendships. He defines the limitations of friendship but also highlights the blessings it can bring. In true friendship, accountability and love inspire us to live with more honour, integrity and grace. Ultimately, we see that in Jesus Christ we can have that "higher friendship"-friendship with God himself-which revolutionizes the way we live, the way we think and the things we value. This classic work is an inspiring read!

This book is so relate to given the very detached world of Social Media. With the transient nature of our lives it's so important to understand what makes friendships work, as well as reflect the missing ingredients & the "what went wrongs"

I am thrilled with the condition of this book and the contents. Truly a literary gem!

Three chapters (out of nine) are the most helpful: The Choice of Friendship, The Eclipse of Friendship and The Higher Friendship. While this short book is written in an ornate, looping style, it is is not without its charms. The author quotes frequently from the works of Shakespeare, Tennyson, Coleridge and the like, and especially the New Testament.

Don't expect standard self-help fare:You won't find much directly pertaining to flat-out users, those working out psychological needs by trying to be your friend or foul- weather "friends" who like you better when you're down and out.
It does make you think, though, especially about your own motivations.
And he ends with the Truth: God is the best, most reliable friend if you seek Him, and to this end, I recommend reading "The Interior Castle" by St. Teresa of Avila.

I bought the book because of the succinct chapter titles that seemed to encapsulize friendship. When I opened the book, I saw immediately that this was going to be challenging reading; there are large blocks of text that make it difficult to focus, at least for me. But it contains many gems of truth if one has the time and tools to dig them out.

Written in old English wording, Shakespearian-like in places, one has to think very carefully to glean what is being communicated. I had to re-read sentences several times. The content is very good, and the point is made that to truly have a friend, one must first of all have the common ground of spiritual agreement, of like values. I appreciate the fact that the book is Christian, and I appreciate how Mr. Black addresses what criteria to look for in forming friendships.

In the chapter titled "The Wreck of Friendship," I enjoyed this wording: "In one way or another the loss of friendship comes to all. The shores of life are strewn with wrecks. The convoy which left the harbor gaily in the sunshine cannot all expect to arrive together in the haven. There are the danger of storms and collisions, the separation of the night, and even at the best, if accidents never occur, the whole company cannot all keep up with the speed of the swiftest."

This short book written in 1898 is chock full of timeless wisdom on friendship (and life in general). It covers every aspect and form of friendship including the ultimate friendship - with God. I have read it several times and given away several copies to friends. It's a must-have in my library to refer to often, especially when I need a reminder about what really matters in life. It's my all-time favorite book.

I got this book through an Amazon recommendation and didn't realize it was a bit old. I liked it a lot. Reminded me about how valuable friendship is. The last chapter about friendship with Jesus is inspiring.

Delivered concisely and powerfully, this books contains bits of wisdom from many of history's greatest thinkers, as well as conventional wisdom that it is easy to lose track of. Looking for more out of your relationships? This book will help you deepen your appreciation for those you care about, and give you the state of mind and the attitude to make those relationships strong, deeper, and more satisfying.
This book is old style, a bit pedantic, but it had some really great thoughts. I used it in preparation for a series of posts I did on the topic of Friendship. Very useful.
