Review: Come with Me: Discovering the Beauty of Following Where He Leads
There’s an old song attributed to S. Sundar Singh, I Have Decided to Follow Jesus, that many have heard sung in a church service at one time or another. If that song became a book it would be very like the one Eller has written. In her latest book she encourages the reader to step up and follow Jesus as He invites you to become one of His disciples.
As the original disciples had to discover the what, how, and where of their journey with Jesus, the more recent disciples have a similar journey to accept and travel if they want to truly know the way of Jesus. Borrowing from that old song and the back cover of the book…though none go with you, you are not alone. Ever. The basics are not new, but her presentation shows how it looks in today’s world. And that is the reason to go get a copy of this book and read it. Of course, the author’s hope is that after the reading is done that the reader will apply the word in her own life. The book includes discussion questions at the end of each chapter that some may find helpful.
Would I recommend this book? Yes. It could help any of us move off the starting line and actually get into the race.
I received an ARC copy from the publisher in exchange for a review.
