Dinner with a Perfect Stranger ~ David Gregory

This is a great book, and is a quick read. It is about a guy named Nick who gets an invitation to have dinner with Jesus of Nazareth at a fancy resturant and thinks that this is a joke from his friends at work. He attends the dinner and keeps looking for his friends to show up and say to him the joke is on you. That doesn't happen at all.... Nick is face to face with Jesus and learning that it isn't about being good in life to get to heaven, it is all about accepting Jesus into your heart. The whole book goes through each coure during dinner (appetizer, dinner, dessert, coffee) and covers different questions that Nick asks at each course. It explains salvation in a way that I never thought of explaining it and uses examples that make you think. This is a great story to use as a tool for bringing people to know GOD and your salvation.

I would recommend reading this and buying it to give out to all your friends and family. It is a really quick and easy read, with a message that following Jesus is the only way to eternal life. As I was reading this book I kept thinking, what if I was in the place of Nick and Jesus was sitting across the table from me? What would I ask and how would I react? As soon as I got done with this book, I handed it to my husband and told him, this is a must read.
