Come Away My Beloved

by Frances J. Roberts

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


In the hurried pace of today’s world, it is imperative that believers actively pursue a close, personal relationship with the Lord. However, in order to do that, each of us must set aside the time to come away and seek out the Father’s presence; for though we know and believe that God is with us everywhere, still, we must learn be quiet and to shut out the noise of the world in order to listen instead to the voice of God. Then, and only then, can we be renewed and refreshed. Come Away My Beloved, written by Frances J. Roberts, is a devotional classic that seeks to help us do just that. In its updated form, it has the potential to minister to the hearts of a whole new generation of Christian believers.

According to Adrian Rogers, Senior Pastor at Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis Tennessee, “Frances Roberts has blessed the multitudes with this book. In a world of speed and noise, this volume is a quiet oasis for the weary soul. It deserves wide distribution and personal appropriation.” Based solely upon and filled with God’s written Word, Come Away My Beloved provides a mix of comfort, conviction, and compassion; it is designed to draw the believer, in whatever stage of Christian growth he or she may be, into a more intimate fellowship with the Lord.

Underscoring the truth that God says to us all, “Only as you know Me can you come to be more like me,” this unique devotional book is a wonderful aid that can be used alongside the scriptures in a daily quiet time with the Lord. Truly, “The earthly obscures the heavenly,” but this book allows its reader a glimpse of eternity through the eyes of Christ, and opens the door to closer fellowship with the Father through the power of His Holy Spirit. Its insights are suitable for all believers. -- Nancy K. Brown, Christian Book
