Product Description

Many Christian women try too hard to keep up a set of unspoken but always-imposed rules of Christian living, thinking this will make them more Christlike or give them more intimacy with God. But Christ calls his followers into a more inviting place of freedom where they can shine. In Come Along Rubietta unpacks with personal story, study of Scripture, and people's experiences with Jesus, what the apostle Paul meant about moving from glory to glory and being transformed.

Publisher's Description

Fall in love with Jesus–again, and again, and again

Through ten illuminating encounters, walk into Jesus’ life, love and delight! Laugh, grow, and rest in Christ’s presence as you share these vivid meetings with the One who loves you more than life itself. With humor and spiritual depth, Jane Rubietta passionately draws you into the hope of a freeing relationship with Christ–freedom from false expectations into the brilliance of being fully loved.

Let Jesus delight in you.

Leave your hurry-worry path.Take Jesus’ hand and Come Along on a journey into intimacy, hope, and passion. Exchange your worn-out, must-do faith for real radiance. Solid biblical teaching, heart-rending stories and sound application in each chapter make Come Along a vital companion for personal, small group, and Bible study use.

Author Bio

Jane Rubietta is the award-winning author of eleven books, including critically acclaimed Come Closer. Passionate about helping women connect with God more intimately and live more freely, she speaks internationally to spread the idea that “when a woman changes, the world changes.” Married to Rich, a composer, producer, and pastor, Jane co-directs the not-for-profit Abounding Ministries. She and Rich live in the Chicago area and have three children.

Discussion Questions

Though Come Along: The Journey into a More Intimate Faith contains multiple application tools at the end of each chapter, sometimes it is helpful to have additional questions and journey-deepening suggestions enrich personal study and application, and to make leading or facilitating a small group, book club or study easier.

For a five-week study, combine two chapters for each session. There will be ample material to use during your meeting time. These questions work well in combination with the application elements at the close of each chapter, which can be implemented with the suggestions in “The Girlfriend’s Guide” at the end of the Come Along.

General Questions to ask at each session:
1.What stood out for you in this chapter?
2.What scriptures spoke to you? In what way?
3.Where did you sense God tugging at your heart?
4.What emotional responses did you experience?
5.What will be different today? Tomorrow?

Endorsements

“A gifted writer. The light of scripture shines again through the prism of beauty and story.” — John Ortberg, best-selling author of If You Want To Walk on Water You Have To Get Out of the Boat and When the Game Is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box

“Jane Rubietta’s books are as compelling as her platform presentations. She crafts her content with well-chosen word pictures and profound depth that beckons the readers to ‘come along’ as she leads them into a vibrant and transcendent relationship with Jesus. This book will deepen your faith.”— Carol Kent, speaker and author of A New Kind of Normal

“Another powerful read on encounters with Jesus, self, those we love, and those we are trying to like. Jane addresses hope, healing, attitudes, needs, and longings with grace, grit, and God-centered wisdom. Each chapter ends with challenges and tools that are highly effective in helping us achieve deeper levels of intimacy. Come Along invites us to take the Lord’s hand and walk through life with courage, anticipation, and zeal.” — Ellie Lofaro, co-author of Spaghetti for the Soul and author of Leap of Faith

“Come Along made me face the question, Am I following a set of phony rules and expectations in my attempts to be a ‘nice’ Christian, or am I becoming the woman God imagined me to be? With exquisite writing, Jane takes my real, everyday life in the 21st Century and shows me how Jesus is relevant and present in every moment. Her unshakeable conviction in God’s goodness and love convinced me to throw out my misguided attempts to be ‘nice’ and engage in an authentic relationship with Christ. ‘When a woman encounters Jesus, she is changed,’ Jane insists’—and I was.” — Lynn Austin, four-time Christy Award winner and author of Until We Reach Home

“How does Jane Rubietta know me so well? Her refreshing honesty in Come Along promises to help you get in tune with who you are on the inside, and who God is in your life. She helps us slow down enough to reflect, draw closer, and journey into a more intimate faith experience with the God who loves us more than we can ever imagine.” — Jill Savage, founder of Hearts at Home and author of Real Moms...Real Jesus

Publisher's Weekly

Rubietta, author of the popular Come Closer, continues the come-to-Jesus theme in her newest book for women. She offers “a free, fuller, more intimate relationship with Jesus” through 10 encounters with him as recorded in the Bible. Readers will discover new depth in such stories as Jesus’ baptism, his encounters with an adulterous woman, a woman who has bled for a dozen years, the women who come to his empty tomb, as well as Jesus’ sharp rebuke to the religious leaders of his day. Rubietta’s strength is her ability to bring stories alive through evocative language and imagination. Scholars may quibble with her depiction of the woman who anointed Jesus with costly perfume as a prostitute, and critics may cringe when she puts a balloon in the hands of a first-century woman, but the greater picture of Jesus as a life transformer is more than clear. End-of-chapter challenges help readers translate biblical truth to their lives; a “Girlfriends’ Guide” helps with group discussions. (Dec.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
