Book Review: Dinner with a Perfect Stranger

OK folks...this one is the most interesting book I've reviewed since I started.

If you've read The Shack, this book is similar. Here's the "canned" review...

You are Invited to a Dinner with Jesus of Nazareth
The mysterious envelope arrives on Nick Cominsky’s desk amid a stack of credit card applications and business-related junk mail. Although his seventy-hour workweek has already eaten into his limited family time, Nick can’t pass up the opportunity to see what kind of plot his colleagues have hatched. The normally confident, cynical Nick soon finds himself thrown off-balance, drawn into an intriguing conversation with a baffling man who appears to be more than comfortable discussing everything from world religions to the existence of heaven and hell. And this man who calls himself Jesus also seems to know a disturbing amount about Nick’s personal life.………

...."You’re bored, Nick. You were made for more than this. You’re worried about God stealing your fun, but you’ve got it backwards.… There’s no adventure like being joined to the Creator of the universe." He leaned back off the table. "And your first mission would be to let him guide you out of the mess you’re in at work."………….

As the evening progresses, their conversation touches on life, God, meaning, pain, faith, and doubt–and it seems that having Dinner with a Perfect Stranger may change Nick’s life forever.

Folks...this book is short and a very easy read. I probably read it in just a few hours. It is great and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed reading it! There is another book, by David Gregory called "Day with a Perfect Stranger" and it is about Nick's wife (after his dinner) and her own time spent with a very similar stranger. I didn't review that book, but I can tell you, it made my list of "books to read"!

I can't say enough about this book. Short and quick and it touches on many of the questions others have about Christianity and the "whys" of what we believe.

I have two of these books and I am willing to give them both away if we have enough entries. If you are reading from out of town (and there are several of you) and win, I will pay to have the book shipped to you. So, no strings attached.

So....to enter, leave a comment below or email me at sandras_junk@charter.net

I'll draw for a winner a week from today! And if you don't win, you can click here or here to purchase either book.
