COME, FOLLOW ME is a volume sixteen story-poems. These stories are drawn from incidents related in the New Testament about the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. Each poem tells a story about someone who meets Jesus, and whose life is changed by the encounter. The stories are told in the first person and the reader comes to know and understand this person very well. We wake with Lazarus in the rocky tomb, covered in grave clothes. We hear the angels sing, and kneel with the shepherds at the manger bed of the newborn Christ. The wedding at Cana is a celebration to enjoy with the bridal party. The thief on the cross becomes real as we share his story, and we help to carry the cross with Simon of Cyrene and weep for our Savior there. These stories, told so briefly in the gospels, are expanded and come to life so as to draw the reader into the drama. You will love and never forget these people you meet here. You will find yourself reading these stories time and again, and meditating on the lessons you draw from them. You'll want to keep a copy by your bedside, and you’ll want to bless your friends with a copy on some special occasion. If you love the Lord, and you like stories about His life and the times in which He lived, you will love this book!
