While still in the middle of it I knew I’d be returning to Trevor Hudson’s Friendship with God. It’s a great book. Its length (it’s under 200 pages) belies its wisdom. Hudson has a pastoral heart, and the book is warm, empathetic and concise. It answered a lot of as-yet unasked questions of mine; not offering novel answers as much as practical insight.
