Great book for a women's Bible study Jul 12, 2009
We have used this book in our Sunday morning Women's Group and it is amazing! Jane Rubinetta writes like a "real person" and it is easy to understand what she is trying to convey in each chapter. It has encouraged each of us in our group to be more open and real with each other and has helped us to laugh and cry together. I would highly recommend this book for any who woman who wants to have a deeper walk with Jesus. It works for us as a group study, but would also be great for any individual to read.
Inspiring Mar 1, 2009
Jane Rubietta has done it again with her latest book. Come Closer invites the reader to draw into a warm relationship with Jesus, just as Ms. Rubietta's other books have done. With personal anecdotes and strong Biblical teaching, the message that God wants to communicate with his creation tugs at the heart strings. Rubietta is always a good read.
