Dinner With A Perfect Stranger
By David Gregory
One man's face-to-face encounter with Jesus - over dinner!
Invited to dinner with a man calling himself Jesus of Nazareth, stressed, overworked business man Nick Cominsky assumes his fellow workers are pulling a prank.
On his arrival at the restaurant the stranger introduces himself as 'Jesus. My family called me Yeshua.' Nick decides to play along but throughout the meal this game is continued, and Nick begins to wonder if this likeable apparent prankster may indeed be what he claims.
As the meal progresses, this modern day Doubting Thomas confronts his own unfulfilled longings, spiritual uncertainties and anger with God...and he begins to wonder if it's possible that the man across from him has the answers to his deepest questions.
Nick's life may be changed forever when he has Dinner with a Perfect Stranger.
David Gregory is the co-author of two non-fiction books and a frequent conference speaker. After a ten year business career, he returned to university to study religion, sociology and communications, and he now holds two master degrees. David lives in Dallas with his wife Ava.

Here's a wonderful feast for the mind and soul! Pull up a chair and eavesdrop on this provocative conversation. If you're like me, you'll hear questions that match your own -- and answers that can change your life. — Lee Strobel, author of The Case for Christ
I predict this little book will become a classic--one of a handful of modern books (like Mere Christianity) that people read to kindle or rekindle faith. All of the "business" surrounding the dinner is done so well it reminds me of Babette's Feast--simple, earthly details that profoundly convey spiritual reality. Dinner with a Perfect Stranger is truly a wonderful book that makes me feel I've just heard the gospel for the very first time. — Mike Mason, author of The Mystery of Marriage
The choice is yours: Enjoy a delicious meal of, say, veal fantarella with grilled vegetables. Or spend a quiet hour reading David Gregory's book. You may find an altogether different sort of hunger has been sated by the final page. Brilliant in its simplicity, fearless in its presentation of the truth, Dinner with a Perfect Stranger is one invitation you'll want to RSVP. — Liz Curtis Higgs, author, Thorn in My Heart
