Publisher's Description

For every reader who's bought into the idea of working harder, doing more, smiling bigger, or running faster to get more out of life-and then faced disappointment, fatigue, or the unnerving unexpected, award-winning author Jane Rubietta offers relief and irresistible promise."
"Her fresh approach to fifteen of Jesus's familiar but too-often forgotten invitations in the New Testament remind readers of His promise that: "Life""can be better, ""more sure and satisfying, more beautiful, and truly tasty-not just someday, in heaven, but here and now."
"
"With humor, unforgettable experiences, and gracious encouragement, Jane plumbs Scripture to bring alive these invitations of help, hope, and the refuge of Home. She takes readers on an exploration of the fifteen times in Scripture that Jesus invites followers to come-for relief, light, help, hope, and even breakfast. Jane then offers engaging ideas and tangible things readers can do to draw near to these promises.
"Come Closer" is an invitation to a richer, more spiritual life-an invitation that will open readers' eyes to the love and feast God intends every soul to experience.

Publisher's Weekly

Rubietta encourages Christian women to avail themselves of 15 intimate "invitations," being drawn into Christ's unconditional mercy, grace and acceptance. Rubietta (Grace Points) beautifully presents Jesus' gentle yet persistent summons to come closer to experience this abundant comfort for when life hurts, relief is scarce and help is absent or inadequate. In four-part sequence, the author weaves an eloquent display of proofs from scripture-mainly from the Gospels-that Jesus is indeed close at hand and that Christians can bask in this spiritual reality right now. Jesus' example of extravagant love, she says, is to be passed on in like manner. Rubietta provides numerous poignant stories to illustrate each chapter's takeaway; particularly compelling is her account of a makeup artist who weekly serves the women employed at a strip club, building relationships with these hurting individuals without standing in judgment of their profession. Rubietta writes well, richly presenting Jesus' beckonings with dynamic storytelling, emotionally inviting prayers and calls to honest introspection. She is wonderful at expressing the heart's longing for comfort and care. Evangelicals will find their spirits uplifted after relishing Rubietta's entreaty to draw nearer still to the Jesus who always cares. (July 17) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
