The death of a friend is a source of pain and grief for anyone. For David B. Burrell, it is also a source of reflection on the role of friendship in our ongoing pursuit of truth. In this small but penetrating book, Burrell offers five essays that explore friendship as the bond that links us to the religious traditions we embrace in our search for truth. Known for his many and lasting contributions to philosophical theology, Burrell here makes a definitive statement for that field while also continuing the cross-cultural discussion among Christians, Muslims, and Jews.

Editorial Reviews

“This is an interesting book, a satisfying blend of the personal and the political. Burrell uses the concept of friendship as a central explanatory vehicle, and in so doing brings a new perspective to bear on many of the central issues in religion. The scope of the book is wide, ranging from discussing some of the most important contemporary Christian thinkers to Islamic theologians of a thousand years ago.  Burrell has a light stylistic touch which does not hide the profoundity of many of his observations.” —Oliver Leaman, editor of The Future of Philosophy: Towards the Twenty-First Century
