Publisher's Description

Her disability couldn’t stop the coming dance . . .

 
This biblical-timeframe story captures the heartache of terrible mishap, tension between cultures, and the redeeming power of one Man.
 
When the mystifying dreams began at age five, Abia Ben-Judah realizes that her relationship with God is about to enter a new level. However, after suffering from an accident that crushes her hip and leaves her unable to bear children, Abia believes her dreams have lost all relevance in her life.
 
Until the dreams begin coming true one by one.
 
Twelve years of pain—mingled with the loving bond of a family in biblical times—creates in Abia an unbroken spirit that takes her from her humble Jewish home to Herod’s palace, and ultimately to the presence of the One who predestined her dreams. This timeless story encompasses the power of worship through dance, along with the ripening of prophecy in one’s life.

    This review was written for Dancing With Jesus.
    When I started reading Dancing with Jesus, I was amazed to discover all of the wonderful history intertwined in the story of young Abia and her family. I feel as though I had a thorough lesson in biblical history as I read the touching story of Abia's life. The author created a beautiful tapestry, just like Abia's family created beautiful linens as they worked together in the family business.

    Here is one particularly magnificent excerpt, "He proceeded in the dance until His last breath was spent, and with that last breath He declared, 'It is finished.' For His last dance movement, He bowed His head in a silent salute and gave up His spirit, so she, His Bride, in the near future, could have His spirit and live." Wow!

    This book is a must-read for all Believers, and it would be a powerful tool to share with those who don't yet know The Risen King. It shows the loving and compassionate heart of God through the sacrifice of His Son better than anything I've read before. I hope this is the first of many novels by Linda Fitzpatrick.

    This review was written for Dancing With Jesus.
    "Dancing with Jesus" is a captivating story of encountering Jesus, finding purpose, and fulfilling destiny. Abia Ben-Judah, early in her childhood, experiences a series of dreams, dreams of a special relationship with God - dreams of prophetic dancing and worship. A debilitating accident left Abia questioning the realization of her dreams as she endured twelve years of suffering and pain. Abia's destiny begins in a humble Jewish home filled with love, steeped in tradition, and religion.

    Careful attention to detail in her character and plot development brings the story to life, providing; historical adventure, discovery, and spiritual growth. Fitzpatrick's Biblical backgrounds and illustrative narratives are consistent with scripture.

    Fitzpatrick uses the medium of fiction to deliver a message of hope and salvation as she weaves a parallel story of her own life of encountering Jesus. She tells her story through Abia's redemption, restoration, and the experience finding spiritual fulfillment through prophetic dancing as a form of worship, taking her right into the presence of God.

    The dramatic conclusion of "Dancing with Jesus" left me with a lingering feeling of gratefulness for God's unmerited mercy and intimate love for His children as I too experienced Abia's sense of God's presence.

    "Dancing with Jesus" is a power packed, compelling novel. Linda Fitzpatrick creates Biblical drama, incorporates Christian fantasy, and brilliantly blends historical fiction and prophetic fulfillment into the adventure.

    Invitation to the Dance

    This review was written for Dancing With Jesus.
    This book is an invitation to the Body of Christ, both corporately and individually, both within and outside the walls of the church, both saved and yet to be saved, to enter the dance of eternity and dance with Jesus.

    This is a beautifully choreographed piece of art. It stirs the heart of the reader to become the worshiper God is desiring - those who will follow His lead and become one with Him in perfect harmony. There are many in the Body of Christ whose walk has been attacked by the enemy. I believe this book gives hope that Jesus is going to bring healing to us and that we will once again dance with Jesus.

    This book brings the story of John the Baptist and Jesus and the early church alive. You can imagine yourself as being right there. But this book continues to invite the present-day church to become part of the dance. It shows how powerful dance is in bringing heaven to earth and in warfare and protection.

    The picture I got from this book is the Body of Christ being one with her Beloved in perfect harmony, where we hear the Holy Spirit's instruction for each step and follow His lead as our dance partner and offer praise and worship to the King who gave all to win our love.

    Praise is a powerful weapon of warfare. As we praise God, He fights our battles for us. I believe that great things will happen as the bride of Christ answers this invitation to dance with Jesus following the lead of the Holy Spirit. It is a picture of the Spirit and the Bride saying, Come Lord Jesus.

    I particularly liked the comparison of Jesus carrying the cross as Him dancing with His reluctant, stubborn bride. This portrayed in a powerful way the love that God has for the whole world. When I think of this analogy which is in the book, I think of Cinderella.

    I believe Jesus is inviting through this book all of the unknown Cinderellas to His ball to dance with Him.

    Nehemiah 4:2 asks "....Can they bring the stones back to life from those heaps of rubble--burned as they are?" Yes, God gives us beauty for ashes.

    This book is an invitation for the church to dance with Jesus, but it also an invitation for the church to bring in the broken and trashed people who Jesus danced with on the way to Calvary so that they too can be part of His bride and dance with Him. He is desiring to transform them just as Cinderella was transformed and dance with them at His ball.

    This review was written for Dancing With Jesus.
    It was more like a sermon and not a work of fiction. The actual story line probably took up 10 pages.
