Item description for Come As You Are: An Invitation to Meet Jesus--Just Where You Are by Reuben Welch & Dean Nelson...
Overview A meaningful, personal relationship with Jesus often seems a distant and lofty goal for many Christians. Through his books and discussion, teacher and author Reuben Welch has always encouraged people to meet with Jesus and let Him reach for them and allow life to change. "Come As You Are" explores the way Reuben shared this invitation and what it means for people.
Publishers Description Why do people change their lives? What evokes a sense of repentance from them? Is it the awareness that they are loved completely, that God comes to them through Jesus? Now--as they are, not as they should be. They don't have to do anything first. God does all the initiating. After nearly 50 years of study, teaching, preaching, and speaking, Reuben Welch will be the first to tell you: he has yet to discover all the answers to the numerous perplexities of the Christian life. 'This messes up those who have the system wired--the ones with certainty, ' Reuben says. 'God is a thing, and Jesus is a thing, and being a Christian is a thing, and sin is a thing.' Then tears fill his eyes. But there's one truth he's absolutely sure of: no other person can better share the heartaches of life's rugged pathway than the One in whom they will all find ultimate resolution. He's a friend beyond comparison and comprehension. Paper

Dean Nelson fan May 5, 2003
I haven't actually read this book, but I attend school where Dean teaches, and ever since I took a class with him last semester, I am convinced that he is the coolest person alive, and will therefore support anything and everything he does. I agree strongly with whoever said, "Let's face it...Dean kicks butt!" He is an amazing writer and a great person. YAY FOR DEAN!

LOOK OUT DICKENS! YOUR MATCH HAS ARISEN! Apr 19, 1999
Lets face it, Dean kicks butt. When I started reading Welch's stories, I was very impressed on the talent he possesed to thread his stories together, and that alone should get you to read the book. I had at first skipped Nelson's part, just to get to the "good part", but when I began to read Nelson's passage, I was blown away buy his skill. I mean, WOW! I was taken into his world and could feel his passages around me. Nelson is a true master.
