Book Review: Dinner With A Perfect Stranger



To prepare for author David Gregory’s upcoming visit to our church, earlier this week I read his book entitled Dinner With A Perfect Stranger. In a quick-read encompassing only 100 pages, Gregory spins a fictional tale of a businessman who accepts an invitation to have dinner with Jesus. Throughout the dinner, Jesus answers pressing questions from the businessman about how other religions fail to address some of the deepest needs and desires found in every human. And amidst those answers, the gospel is presented in a simple, direct way.

This book's creative presentation of the gospel message would be a great gift for a friend who needs a gentle nudging towards making a decision to accept Christ as his/her Savior. And for those who have already accepted Christ, this book is a reminder that Christ wants to converse with you daily.

Thankfully, we all have a personal invitation to dine with Christ. Have you accepted your invitation?

You're so good. . . reading in expectation of the author's visit. Coincidentally, I picked up this book at a friend's house a couple months ago and read it that day. I really enjoyed his approach and look forward to his visit.

SP - I think it will be great to hear Gregory speak. It's hard to believe that's only a few weeks away.
