Publisher's Summary

In a divided country desperate for unity, two sons of South Carolina show how different races, life experiences, and pathways can lead to a deep friendship - even in a state that was rocked to its core by the 2015 Charleston church shooting. 

Tim Scott, an African-American US senator, and Trey Gowdy, a white US congressman, won’t allow racial lines to divide them. They work together, eat meals together, campaign together, and make decisions together. Yet in the fall of 2010 - as two brand-new members of the US House of Representatives - they did not even know each other. Their story as politicians and friends began the moment they met and is a model for others seeking true reconciliation. 

Here, Senator Scott and Congressman Gowdy, through honesty and vulnerability, inspire others to evaluate their own stories, clean the slate, and extend a hand of friendship that can change your churches, communities, and the world.

Love + Faith + Compassion = Lasting Friendships

Genuine friendship in politics is almost taboo in today’s political climate. More than that, the friendship these two esteemed gentlemen enjoy is truly transcendent. Admittedly, in most cases, I completely disagree with their political views. However, I can appreciate hard work, genuineness, faith, & civility when I see it. Those are qualities fully displayed in the lives of these two respectable men. What impresses me the most about Sen. Scott & Rep. Gowdy is their persistence in maintaining faith & friendship in a wholly toxic environment. If we only had their story as an example, it’d be a benchmark on the power of friendship which supersedes race, ethnicity, religion, or status. Thank you gentlemen for this inspirational piece of literature!

well written

the relationship these two men have forged is an inspiration. this book made me laugh, cry and really reflect on how I can do things differently how to connect with others in a meaningful positive way.
