This book would be such a great witnessing tool! If I knew someone who was lost, I would just hand them this book! - Christy Janes, Christian Fiction Reviews
I believe this book should be in the home of every Christian, and they should share it with as many non-Christians as possible. It speaks to us in places in our hearts that we may have forgotten about. It speaks to us of a Jesus who was real, a mother who loved Him more than His disciples could know, and how we, who have become His children, are His living legacy. I love this book. – Author David Brollier, The 3rd Covenant
Kudos to this author for a compelling and rich account which builds on Biblical truth in a format that is friendly to any reader while presenting the truth of the Gospel in a clear and enticing narrative without the limitations of the scriptural accounts which are only a mere fraction of the picture. – Melissa Meeks, Bibliophile's Retreat
Come to Me is a great way to share Christ with those who weren’t raised in the church but desire to understand who Jesus was and is. – Author Donna Dawson, Vengeance
Come to Me is a story about the faith and obedience of a young girl whose absolute trust in God set in motion a chain of unprecedented events. It is a moving tale of the life of Christ from the mother who raised him to become the Saviour of the World.
After everyone had left, Heli turned to Mary and asked the question that had been on his mind since her arrival. “My daughter, is it true? Are you now with child?”
Mary looked warily at her father, then looked quickly at her mother and not knowing how either would react, said calmly and confidently, “Yes, Father … I carry the Son of God.”
The groan that came out of Heli was wrought with despair. He fell to his knees and began to sob violently. Mary was alarmed and looked to her mother for reassurance. Does Abba think I am a harlot, or does he believe my story? - Excerpt from Come to Me
Beautifully written - A must read!
Laura Davis's "Come To Me" is a skillfully written historical novel that brings to the table many of the events of the life of Jesus from Mary's perspective. From the time I started it I simply couldn't put it down. I love the entire book, but the part of the passion of Jesus was gut-wrenching yet inspiring. How much must we matter to the Creator of the universe to endure the brutality of the cross!
The final days of Jesus after his resurrection made me wish I was there to live the glory of the risen Christ. As I read this book, I found myself immersed in the story just as the disciples were a part of Jesus' life. And in a sense I was there through the pages of this book. A must read if you are a Christian or a seeker.

Based on bible truth and told with warmth and insight, it helps us identify with Jesus' family and especially with Him - the One who says to all people, "Come to Me". An encouraging book for a new believer or a seasoned Christian.

The Human Side of Christ
Author Laura Davis, in her book Come to Me, has taken up the challenge few authors would bite into—one of fictionalizing the life of Christ. While a work like this takes great liberties, Davis has pulled it off with good taste. Like any fiction, there are elements that we will never know as truth until we reach heaven but they are plausible in this book.
Taken from Mary’s view point, Davis tells a story of God’s great love for mankind. We see the human side to Christ, Mary and the apostles and it drives scripture home just that much more. Davis weaves in tidbits of ancient Hebrew society that a Bible reader might not think about. I found myself scrambling back and forth between the novel and scripture to take a new look—not a bad thing in a day and age when few of us look at our Bibles at all.
Come to Me is a great way to share Christ with those who weren’t raised in the church but desire to understand who Jesus was and is. It is an easy to read novel that would be good for ages from fourteen and up.
This sounds very interesting, have you also read the recent work of Anne Rice on the subject? (I confess I haven't but aim to soon). Wishing you continued success and best wishes and also, a Happy Easter:)
