Product Description

In Jesus Approaches, Elizabeth Kelly shares vivid stories of New Testament women whose encounters with Jesus freed them to flourish in life.

Editorial Reviews

Kelly is an engaging storyteller who shares deeply personal narratives, both her own as well as those of modern women who have found a deeper relationship with the person of Jesus. Her suggestions for prayers and ideas on which to meditate truly invite the reader to find her own way into a lasting friendship with him.
 

Reading Jesus Approaches is like listening to a friend as she shares encounters with Christ from the Nativity to His Resurrection. Her descriptions and the stories shared by other women show struggles, yet in Christ they have a very peaceful and calming effect. She describes God’s love for us as warm, as living, as glowing.
