Week #3: Dinner With A Perfect Stranger by David Gregory

Over the Christmas break I re-connected with a friend from college who I had lost track of. We were having coffee one morning and his wife called sobbing and said she had just read an unbelievably impacting book. I didn’t know his wife, so I assumed that was just her personality… the emotional type. Two days later he called me and said that he had read the book too and that I really needed to get a copy.

I did.

Initially the book seemed a little contrived and alot just weird. I knew what the author was trying to get at. It just seemed a strange way to get there… Boy was I early in my judgment!

Half way through I was hooked. And if by now you’re wishing that I would just tell you what this one’s about… that’s what I’m trying to do. I’m hoping that you’ll be interested enough to read it for yourself. It’s a quick read. You can probably finish it in a day or two. It’s actually tough to put down.

This book helped me remember the simplicity of the message of Jesus.
