Discover the Antidote for Loneliness In God’s Gift of Other People

The true stories that make up this book were milestones in the author’s journey from isolation to community—from haunting estrangement to a deeper, more vital connection with others.

In a sense, Friends and Strangers is about loneliness—how we become cut off from other people and estranged from ourselves.

More important, it is about the precious gift of other people, friends and strangers alike, and the contributions they make in our lives.

For it is through our chance encounters and our everyday relationships, Karen Mains has discovered, that we grow into our real selves. And it is often those we meet in life’s lonely places that show us the face of Christ.

“I have finally realized the stranger I am to myself can only find its real place in the arms of another Stranger, Jesus Christ. He is the one who outwits my self-deception by coming to me in the guise of many strangers—strangers who, once I recognize the presence of Christ within them, become my friends.”
