Product description


"If we will be siblings in the kingdom, it's time we accepted our future for the sake of our present. This is the best book I have seen on this subject." -- Scot McKnight "Julius R. Mantey Chair of New Testament, Northern Seminary, Lisle, Illinois"

"I can't think of a more countercultural message . . . than a church marked by men and women who trade the fear of adultery€for the freedom of appropriate sibling friendships. . . . Aimee shows us this better way."€ -- Jen Wilkin "Bible Teacher; Author of Women of the Word and None like Him"

"Aimee Byrd's plea for a recovery of [coed] friendships in the church . . . is timely. A provocative but irenic breath of fresh air on a contentious topic. . . . Highly recommended." -- Carl R. Trueman "Professor of Biblical and Religious Studies, Grove City College"
