Book Description, Modified from Goodreads:
In her warm, conversational way, Suzie Eller shows how, when you take a step away from the uncertainty, the to-do list, the busy life, the worries and excuses, you take a step toward the One who promises to delight and surprise. Who brings you deeper than you ever thought possible.

Two thousand years ago, 12 men answered the call to follow a man they hardly knew--and they were changed in ways they never imagined. Today that same invitation echoes across history, beckoning you to an adventure that will spill into every aspect of your faith and life. "Come with Me." Will you say yes?

My Review:
Come With Me is a Christian spiritual growth book. The author read through the gospels as if she was the 13th disciple and she didn't know how everything was going to turn out. As if Jesus had asked her to "Come with me. Wherever I lead. Whatever the price." As, of course, he still does.

She talked about growing in various aspects of following Jesus and going deeper in our relationship with Him. In each chapter, she looked at one of the 12 disciples. She talked about something she learned from their life and how this same thing works out in her and some of her friends' lives. For example, doing what Jesus asks because "if you say so" or when you don't feel able or worthy. To love the unlovable, give our "not enough" to God, do unnoticed service, find gratitude, live the good news, seek Jesus, and live as if everything we have is his.

The writing style was casual and encouraging. Overall, I'd highly recommend this book.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
