A book that answers your deepest question:

As a member of the blogging for books program, I am asking to read books and then to write a review of what I think of that book.  This is a book review on the book Dinner with a Perfect Stranger by David Gregory.  This review is my own honest personal opinion of what I thought of the book.

Dinner with a Perfect Stranger:

 Dinner with a Perfect Stranger by David Gregory is  a book about one man’s quest to find the truth.  The main character, Nick, is invited to a dinner with Jesus of Nazareth.  Nick assumes that someone, or some church is playing a trick on him.  Out of curiosity Nick goes to the restaurant to find out who is behind the invitation.  When Nick arrives at the restaurant he is surprise to see that the man that invited him to dinner is someone he has never met.   Nick is compelled to stay and have dinner with this man and to ask him questions.  At first he does not believe his dinner guest is Jesus, but as the dinner progresses he suspends his disbelieve for the sake of  the conversation.  Nick ask Jesus poignant questions about the different world religions, and why he is the only way to God.  They talk about why there is pain and suffering in the world. Throughout the book Jesus answered all Nick’s question as to if God really exists.  Gregory leaves the book open for readers to come to their own conclusion about God.
I really enjoyed reading this book.  It is a small fictional book, but it is pack with real truths.  Many of the questions that Nick asked Jesus were the same questions that many of us would want to ask Jesus.  This book will help answer question to those that are seeking answers about God.  After reading this book I came away with a  better understanding of God purpose for my life.  It may be a fictional book, but it is also biblically accurate.   I recommend that you read this book, and then give it to a friend that is seeking the truth.
