Publisher's Summary

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 70-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.

Good food for thought

I'm sure that there are people who believe there are many roads to God "just won't get it" when it comes to this book. As someone who believed Jesus when he said "I am the Way" and not "I am a way," I found this book to be an insightful analysis of the world's religions.

Thought provoking...

What did you like best about Dinner with a Perfect Stranger? What did you like least?

The performance is smooth, easy to listen to, engaging.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I found myself wondering how I would respond to this Perfect Stranger were I to have dinner with him. The conversation covers some of the universal questions one considers when deciding whether a particular spiritual concept rings true. Because it's a quick listen and because the protagonist's situation is familiar to so many, the listener will likely find comforting food for thought.

Great scenario

I enjoyed this book. It was read well and although Jesus' voice was a bit weak and irritating at times the author did well exchanging between the two. I enjoyed the scenario and the cynical nature of the character and the questions and answers were questions I would have asked.
