The Company You Keep- Book Review

David C. Bentall authored this good book written specifically to men, but could certainly teach us all some lessons.  In it David uses his friendship with two other men to highlight lessons learned about the need for deeper relationships.  He uses his own experience to challenge the reader to consider building a covenant relationship with those who can be trusted and would be willing to take the journey of life together.

It didn’t take me long to read this book and truth be told I skimmed over many of the illustrations…but then I tend to do that in books looking for the phrase or sentence that highlights what is being illustrated.

Would I recommend this book?  Yes I would and believe you’ll enjoy it.

The reality for many of us is we have few good friends, deep friendships.  We know many people – Facebook proves that.  But we don’t have many really good relationships with men that bear the kind of fruit David speaks of.  So after reading the book I might ask the question: so what are you going to do now?
