Publishers Description PROMINENT SURGEON REVEALS GOD'S YEARNING FOR INTIMACY. God's call to intimacy echoes through the corridors of time, beckoning with the words, Come Unto Me. Dr. James P. Gills answered that call and now encourages others to do the same. In Come Unto Me, Dr. Gills recounts his own divine appointment with God on the summit of Mt. Sinai. With eager anticipation and a deep yearning to be at one with God, he raced to the top of the mountain, fully expecting to discover a life-changing revelation. What Dr. Gills discovered is that God's deepest desire from His heart of love is intimacy with man. Using the story of the Israelites' Exodus from Egypt, Come Unto Me takes readers on a journey to discover true intimacy with God. Dr. Gills compares his own life to that of Moses and the children of Israel. They discovered, as did he, that intimacy with God comes only through knowing and trusting Him. Dr. Gills shows that a committed spiritual life cannot be obtained; it must be learned, and that time must be spent with God to truly know Him. Readers will learn that they cannot enter the presence of God without being transformed, and that God wants to open their lives and fill them with His very own life. Come Unto Me resonates God's call to intimacy to all who will respond.

Reviews - What do customers think about Come Unto Me?
Great book Feb 7, 2004
First, it's not a very long book, but it manages to convey a lot. Easy to read, with no sophistications, it speaks from a down to earth point of view, about less down to earth areas of our existence (such as self knowledge and divinity). I recommend it to anyone who want to explore his own dimensions without risking to get lost.
