Reviews - What do customers think about Come Away My Beloved-Softcover (Updated)?
hard to read Nov 16, 2008
I ordered the original of this book, by mistake. It is extremely hard to follow the thoughts of the author. Way too many "thine" and "thou" and "thee" and "thy" and "ye"... you get the picture. I would probably recommend the updated editions... just for friendlier reading.
Second only to the Bible Nov 5, 2008
This is a 'deep calls unto deep' book, and once the Holy Spirit quickens the writings to you, you will be so blessed by every page you read. It is a daily devotional that seems like it is totally God inspired. I to (as another person who wrote a review said), if stuck on a desert island, would want to have my Bible and this book with me. It is a gem, as is Mrs Roberts who wrote it.
Good Find Sep 19, 2008
This book is a nice little devotional. It has some great things to meditate on. I have enjoyed picking it up when I only have 5-10 minutes of time.
Come Away My Beloved Aug 28, 2008
I purchased this for my wife along with several Hannah Hunnard books of my youth. She has fallen in love with this book. Her eyes shine each day and she rereads today's portion again when she gets home for the office. I have started reading it too and she is so right; perfect beyond expectations so I bought more and others of the same author to give away. Rick Shafer
