Blog Book Club

I just finished the most entertaining and interesting book I have read in a long time. Dinner with a Perfect Stranger by David Gregory is a book about an average man with a family and usual life problems who gets invited to dinner by Jesus Christ. He goes, thinking it's a joke and the dinner becomes the most enlightening and revolutionary discussion for Christians and non-Christians.

The book is a short read, only 100 pages, but in those 100 pages David Gregory through the character of Jesus Christ, successfully and biblically talks about Christianity and how living with Jesus is the one and only way to live. In fact other religon's such as hinduism, buddhism, and Islam are picked apart in an intelligent manner

Here is one of my favorite exerpts, (Jesus says) "There is no path to God...What I mean is this: a path is something you travel down by your own effort to reach a destination. But there's no such path to God. There is nothing you can do to work your way to God. That path doesn't exist...God is like that, He's not interested in people trying to perform well enough for him. They can't. He created people to have a relationship with him, to enjoy his love. But humanity rejected God and severed that relationship. His program is putting it back together."

I took out the main character's responses and other things but you get the picture. I'm asking everyone who reads this blog go get this book and comment on it. I would like to keep this book club going. You can order the book and read a full exerpt at
You can also read more information on the book at its website At the website you can download question and answer sheets and scriptures that corresponds with what Jesus says during the dinner discussion.

Hi Telika,
This is AWESOME! I can't wait to get the book and begin reading. Is it also available in stores? It sounds like just the kind of commentary on faith that I would enjoy. I'll keep you posted on what I think. I think it's cool to have a sort of online book club of we who read your blog all the time.
