Transformative Friendships shares seven simple questions that will help you be intentional with your relationships and offers a springboard to deepening and strengthening friendships that will enrich your life.   

Building meaningful friendships is not as easy as we wish it was. A culture that is lonelier and more disconnected than ever proves how hard it can be. In Transformative Friendships, counselor Brad Hambrick encourages readers to develop new rhythms, habits, and lifestyles that will shape and grow their relationships, both with casual acquaintances and closer friends.  

The goal is not to develop perfect friendships, but rather learn how to cultivate deep connections that grow steadily over time through conversations based on simple questions and common interactions. Hambrick’s biblical vision for friendship calls Christians to engage with one another in the transformational way God intended. 

  • The third book in the Church-Based Counseling series, designed to help churches mobilize and utilize levels of care from friendship to mentoring to counseling groups.  
  • Learn how sharing your story and hearing others’ stories will cultivate a sense of belonging and encourage mutual understanding.  
  • Useful for individual, one-on-one, or small group book discussions.

“What makes friendship good? How can we enlarge our care for one another? As a skilled physician of the soul, Brad Hambrick combines his rich understanding of Scripture with his genuine curiosity about people and then beautifully articulates this doctrine of transformational friendship. Leave it to Brad to carefully and methodically communicate a message that the body of Christ is so desperate to hear.”

“In a world of inch-deep and mile-wide relationships, there seems to be a gap between people’s desire for rich friendships and the lack of depth in their current relationships. This book is not only a gospel-saturated reflection of that pursuit but a tangible roadmap for helping you get there. A timely resource that I think all church leaders should have on their shelves.”
