Author Bio

FRANCES J. ROBERTS (19182009) is best known for her classic devotional Come Away My Beloved. She founded The King's Press in 1964, where she authored and published Come Away and eight other books, selling over 1.5 million copies in 30 years. After graduating from Moody Bible Institute in 1938, Roberts served as Floridas state director for Child Evangelism Fellowship, writing the popular Wordless Book Song during her tenure there. An accomplished musician with eighty-eight published hymns, Roberts also taught at a Spanish mission school and worked as a professional accompanist, performing at various churches.

Editorial Reviews

Sometimes books are special. Their message lingers long after the cover is closed. The Bible holds that special place in our home, along with a few other books. But, after Barbour Publishing introduced us to Robert's writings, her books have become second only to the Bible.

Robert's unique talent is her ability to portray God's voice as if God speaks to the reader, one-on-one, with Holy Spirit inspired words. She writes, "Come Away My Beloved was forged in the crucible of life," where Roberts felt the ministering winds of the Holy Spirit blow words of "encouragement, hope, comfort and conviction" into each day's joys and trials.

Powerful sentences such as, "My child, do not expect the trials to be lighter than in the past."

"How can I give you healing for your body while there is anxiety in your mind?" "Oh My child, lay your heart in my hand and let me heal it." "My hand is upon you, and I will keep you in all places wherever you go. I am your God, and I am your Father, and I will care for you and provide for you..." These words of love bring readers into God's Holy presence.

The small book of devotions and writings, updated into modern language is broken into six sections. "The Call of Love, Living Water, Launch Out! Learn to Reign, Listen to the Silence and The Sounding of the Trumpet. A scripture index completes the book.

Roberts' rare writing style is like reading a "devotion from God," written especially for you. If you're unfamiliar with her easy-to-read inspiring body of work I encourage you to save yourself a trip and purchase several inexpensive copies, one for yourself and several more for family and friends. I did.

Frances Roberts, an accomplished pianist, organist, songwriter, poet and author, lived from 1918 to 2009 and in her lifetime she wrote nine books and published eighty-eight hymns. She founded King's Press in 1964 and went on to publish over 1.5 million books. Come Away My Beloved, today considered a classic devotional, first released in 1970 was updated into modern language for the 40th anniversary edition.

    Pg 226

    "I have called you to come into the secret chambers of solitary communion. They are dark, but the comfort of My Person is there. Out of darkness comes great treasure." LIE FROM THE PIT OF HELL!Scripture verse for this? NO, BECAUSE THERE ISN'T ONE! I John 1:5 - "This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all." THIS IS THE TRUTHPg 250

    "a multitude of souls are searchiing for Me and would never come into contact with Me in a personal way through the channels of the organized church."Really? Jesus established the church. Anyone who subtly, or not so subtly, woos you away from a Jesus-ordained church is an enemy of Jesus.Pg 236

    "This knowing Me in secret is an experience alien to the world. This union with Me is the source of your life, of your strength, of your health and vitality. Nothing can substitute. Prayer is good, but prayer cannot substitute for solitary communion."Hello! She has found another way to communicate with God other than Biblical prayer called solitary communion? I don't think so. There is no such mention of anything like this in the Bible. She is recommending an experience that is meant to put you in an altered state of consciousness. BEWARE!Pg 232,233

    "I call you through the trees. In the soughing of the pines, it is My voice speaking. I call you in the wind. In the breaking of the waves, it is My voice you hear. In the tumbling waters of the brook, it is I, calling, ever calling."

    "Let the voice within you answer the voice without. Be at one with the trees, with the waves, with the flowing brook."

    "So the trees would say to you, Speak. Speak to Me, speak of Me - for I am always speaking. And the lake would say to you, Be Still. Be still before Me in the communion, and be still at times even in the company of others, so may enjoy the lesson of the lake in mutual fellowship."Please - if you want to call this a new age, panenthestic devotional - go ahead. BUT PLEASE DO NOT CALL IT A CHRISTIAN DEVOTIONAL! God does not talk through nature; He doesn't want us thinking in terms of being 'one' with nature. God talks through His Word, the Bible. Read that! That is where you will find the comfort you are looking for - not through some creepy devotional where a woman is talking as if she's God, saying things God has never said.Charles Spurgeon said, 'Discernment is not simply a matter of telling the difference between what is right and wrong; rather it is the difference between right and almost right." Wake up, church! "He who is spiritual judges all things." I Corinthians 2:15
