Description

2018 Catholic Press Association, 3rd Place in Scripture: Popular Studies
2018 Independent Press Award, Distinguished Favorite: Religion Non-Fiction

In Jesus Approaches, Elizabeth Kelly shares vivid stories of New Testament women whose encounters with Jesus freed them to flourish in life. The stories are supplemented with moving accounts from her own life, and from the lives of women like you, to demonstrate that sometimes the best way to find healing, strength, and wholeness in Christ is, ironically, to lead with vulnerability and openness.

Ultimately, Jesus Approaches teaches that finding the fullness of life for which you were created begins with bringing your brokenness to the Lord.

Review quote

Reading Jesus Approaches is like listening to a friend as she shares encounters with Christ from the Nativity to His Resurrection. Her descriptions and the stories shared by other women show struggles, yet in Christ they have a very peaceful and calming effect. She describes God's love for us as warm, as living, as glowing.
