In this book, Dr. Scott Keith has collected essays from several of his friends to reflect on the nature of friendship. Stories of historical friendships from the Ancient Near East to the pubs of modern Oxford are told. The benefits of friends walking together and confiding in each other are also extolled. 

Each section takes a unique approach. Some are academic, others are pastoral, while the rest are more down to earth. Not all friends are alike, and thus not all the chapters in this little book are alike. Yet, there is something uniquely special about this work on friendship written by a group of friends. We hope you enjoy this short work given to you by your friends at 1517.
