    First of all, put aside the notion that this is a true work of fiction. Rather, it's an argument with a loose, unlikely, uninteresting plot wrapped around it. Worse, the plot is distracting, with waiters and bus boys interrupting the conversation between the strawman -- I mean Nick, the narrator -- and a certain interpretation of Jesus, one who uses an age-old wound that our narrator has from his childhood as an excuse to talk him into conversion to a form of Christianity.I don't have a problem with this form of Christianity necessarily. I don't agree with all parts of it. But I'm okay with it to a certain extent.What I'm not okay with:--using simple-minded points which are not truly representative of non-Christian religions to refute those religions.--imposing materialistic Western worldviews onto Eastern worldviews in an attempt to disprove them.--using the Bible to prove the Bible.--having a college educated narrator who stops each line of questioning way too easily.--abuse of the Socratic method.I'm unclear on the target audience of this book. Non-Christians who aren't seeking? Maybe, if they aren't very skilled at critical thinking (no offense, but this book does not contain effective logic, and I'm not being unfriendly in saying so) and aren't closed off taking on a spiritual life. Non-Christians who are seeking? Unless they are pre-disposed already to this specific message, I doubt it will work. If they are truly educated in the world religions, they should know to dig deeper than our narrator does over salad and stuffed mushrooms. People who are already Christians? Only if they already buy into this - sorry, but very bad - logic.So yeah, I found this book unconvincing.And unrelatable for me: a (not-so-) charming scene of the narrator and Jesus chuckling heartily over remembering narrator's dad losing his patience, slamming on the brakes of the family car, and vigorously spanking the narrator on the side of the road. To me that sounds traumatic, not funny at all.A lot of people rated this book highly. It's a mystery to me why that is.Suggested replacement subtitle: An Invitation from A Smug Jesus Impersonator

    Have you ever wished for the opportunity to casually chat with Jesus? Perhaps over dinner at some trendy, upscale restaurant, sipping a glass or two of wine, freely discussing anything and everything - getting answers to some of life's biggest conundrums and the universe's greatest mysteries? This is that book. Oh to recieve such an invitation. Dinner With A Perfect Stranger: A quick and easy, thought provoking little tome that is contemporary yet timeless, simple yet profound. And I loved it! Five ***** Simple Yet Profound, Divine Food For The Hungering Soul ***** Stars

    I would be interested to hear what a non-Christian would make of this book. I am a Christian and, although I didn't think it was life-changing, it was an intriguing, quick read. This book reminded me in some ways of The Shack, but I think this one is definitely better written. Dinner with a Perfect Stranger does not necessarily delve very deeply into the issues raised; I would describe it as an introduction, which is why I think it might be useful to a non-Christian who wants an introduction to the concepts of salvation, grace, a relationship with God, and related topics. The author did a nice job of explaining how nothing humans can do will be sufficient to deserve salvation: "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." I also liked the discussion of how when people put their trust in God, they are changed on the inside. "Their heart, their human spirit, is actually made new. In the depths of their being they no longer run from God; they are joined to him." My favorite part was when Jesus explains "You need someone to love you and accept you and want to be with you, even when you feel bad about yourself. Someone who will always be with you." I am curious to research this author to see if he has written other books that are more in-depth. *Please note that I received this book for free from Goodreads/FirstReads.

    I totally forgot that I own this and read it.See how unmemorable it was?Its a great idea for a book. To sit down with Jesus and ask him anything you ever wanted to know. The chance to reaffirm your beliefs. Or in my case, the chance to shed those layers of doubt, and constant questioning. Bleh. It just did not deliver. The writting was quite bland. It felt to me as tho the writer had written a persuasive essay about religion, and knew if he marketed it that way, it would not reach much of an audiance. So he created two characters who could spew it out for him and dressed it up as a book. At parts it was just so void of personality, and so heavy with textbook explainations.Just wasnt for me.Tho I can see where Gregory was trying to go with it.

    I won this book in a FirstReads giveaway and it was a very easy, simple and intriguing read. I really enjoyed the concept of the book and even learned a thing or two, but it didn't blow my mind or change my life forever. But, it does make you think- what would it be like if you had dinner with Jesus Christ? I have faith in him wholeheartedly and I know it would be a profound experience. I would learn so much from him and the main character in this book did. I think it would make an impact in anyone's life. I won't ramble on about my testimony in Christ and all that he does for us, but I would definitely recommend this book. Plus, it has a thorough guide of questions at the end for book groups, which I think is great. I would like to sit down with my family, at the least, and discuss the questions.

    For anyone looking for a little spiritual guidance in a super-easy to read format, this is great book. It took all of 2 hours to read so it did not require a big commitment. I would compare the book to the first few chapters of "Mere Christianty" by CS Lewis, but in a story-like setting. I found the writing to approachable and thought-provoking, making it a great book for a little self-reflection and insight.

    "Dinner With a Perfect Stranger" was on of the best and most factual book i have ever read. All though the plot could be altered a bit the main idea was great. Things that were said made me reflect on my life and made me think of things that i dont normally think about. This book is about a man who is asked out to dinner by an anonymous person. Thinking it is his friends messing with him, he reluctantly goes. Once he gets there at his table is a man he's never met. The man tells him that he is God.At fist he thinks that this was a prank that his friends were pulling his leg but as the night progresses he, as well as the reader realizes that this could be God. This book tackles many ideas about religion, and not just one religion. It has little bits on every one. It also has things about every day life. When reading it I felt like I also was at dinner with God. Hearing him tell me bits of information that could be critically important to me in my life. This book helped me see the world in a way i never had before. It also left me thinking and reflecting on myself and my life.I would recommend this to any person who his intrested in politics or religion, or just trying to find out who they are. It is a fast read and I hope that if you read it you will enjoy it as much as i did.

    I found the idea of this intriguing, but the execution a bit disappointing. Nick's disbelief is understandable, but his requests for proof, IE wine into water... this book is only 100 pages-either get with the program or ask someone else. And just when the discussion gets good, the waiter interrupts or Nick bogs down. It seemed like a squandered opportunity. Maybe the timing for this book and me was off.

    Dinner with a Perfect Stranger by David Gregory was such a treat. I never read a book so quickly in my life, I just couldn't put it down. The premise of this book is that Nick Cominsky receives an anonymous dinner invitation. The invitation reads, "You are invited to dinner with Jesus of Nazareth at Milano's Restaurant." Nick believes he is being set up by his co-workers and figures he has nothing to lose by going. When Nick arrives to the restaurant, he is escorted to the table where Jesus sitting and Jesus introduces himself. At this point, Nick is looking around for his co-workers to see if they're hiding. But as time elapses, Nick couldn't help being intrigued by the conversation. I honestly felt like I was eavesdropping on their conversation. Not to mention, wishing all the while I could savor what they were eating. I related with the character Nick; from his work schedule, to his doubts and questions. I found myself laughing at his questions because they were so eerily similar to mine. Think about it, imagine if you received a dinner invitation from Jesus? What would you do? Quite honestly, I think I would have been just as cynical as Nick was. Especially by the way Jesus was depicted; he was dressed in a business suit. At some point Jesus even mentions he didn't like neckties. I chuckled when I read this, "God doesn't like neckties. Note that for future reference." Even though this book was a simple quick read, it is very meaningful and makes you think. I also enjoyed reading the refreshing twist on the Gospel.I actually cried at the end of this book. I really didn't want that dinner to end, nor did I want Jesus to leave. I recommend this book to everyone, but especially those who have a lot of questions or are plagued with doubts.Lastly, I want to thank Waterbook Multmonah for sending me this free book to review.

    This is the second time this year I have read this book.. If I could give it better than 5 out of 5, I would. It is one of the greatest explanations of the gospel, God's love and forgiveness that I have read in some time, other than the Bible its self. Nick, a cynical, but very successful business man, receives a mysterious dinner invitation - an invitation to dine with Jesus of Nazareth. Who could imagine - dinner with Jesus. Thinking that his friends or the local church is playing a trick on him, Nick does not take the invitation seriously, but DOES accept the invitation to dinner. This is a great example of the relationship God wants with each of us. If you have not already done so, please read this book and watch the movie (The Perfect Stranger) that is based on the book. This is an invitation well worth considering and a friendship that you WON'T want to miss out on.

    Have you ever wanted to have dinner with Jesus? I know I have! Dinner ... lunch ... breakfast ... a glass of water ... just a chance to talk—I’d settle for that. The premise of David Gregory’s book, Dinner with a Perfect Stranger: An Invitation worth considering, is that the main character Nick Cominsky receives an invitation to a dinner with Jesus. I’ve read the arguments pro and con for this book and this review isn’t praise or scorn for the writing, because that is the means to the end, or the tabletop. Anyone who complains about the surface on which his/her food is served isn’t very hungry. A table needs to be clean and well-presented; anything beyond that is superfluous. But we all know that there is great deal more to food than it being clean and well-presented. It needs to meet nutritional requirements, be balanced, well-prepared and sufficient. In this book, the table is just fine, however, it is the food—the substance which matters—and it is very fine. Gregory’s purpose in writing DwaPS is to give us a fantasy—actually THE fantasy, well anyway, those of us who fantasize and dream of our encounter with the Divine. Although that should be all of us, the reality of course is it isn’t. If Jesus—God—is a real person to you, at some point in your life, you have wondered what it will be like to meet Him. DwaPS gives you the opportunity to experience that longing in one potential encounter, the difference being the main character, Nick, doesn’t believe in who He is talking to. What this book will be like for each individual reader will have to be as different as his/her relationship—or lack thereof—with the Almighty and to a certain extent with individual expectations and how tightly we hold them. Will we allow God to surprise and woo us with a Love more perfect than we can ever imagine or would we rather hold on to our own ideas?Speaking for myself I was totally present at that dinner, except I didn’t have Nick’s skepticism. I drank in Jesus’ every word, answer, and gesture. I wasn’t Cinderella at the ball obviously, but I was having the time of my life and wanting the night to go on forever. Jesus was my Prince Charming and everything I hoped He would be. He was—is—Perfect, but in my case, He wasn’t a stranger, although He is mysterious and elusive.Nick asked the questions, which probably made for a more interesting book. I kept having flashbacks to disastrous dates when I was a tongue-tied shy teen on a first date. I could see myself just staring at Jesus … with my mouth hanging open! Sorry for the mixed metaphors, but when we are talking about God, we do grasp for something familiar to help our audience understand what we mean … all the while knowing we are falling way short of the Truth.Well worth reading!><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><Deacon Norm from our parish said he received this as a Christmas gift. As he described it in RCIA class last week I was so excited to read it. I LOVE the play on words in the title ... of course you know who the 'perfect' stranger is, right? ☺

    Dinner with a Perfect Stranger: An Invitation Worth Considering is a slim volume best suited for a light-weight philosopher interested in the claims of Jesus Christ. The plot of the book centers on a dialogue in a restaurant between a man, Nick, in a turbulent marriage mostly disinterested in religion, and the actual Jesus, reincarnated if you will on earth as himself in the 21st century. The plot being centered on dialogue results in a lack of depth or development to the characters themselves. Through the dialogue, the main character becomes acquainted with Jesus, facing his own doubts and incredulity at the possibility of the meeting, and then facing some of his theological dilemmas. The book is an interesting way to begin a journey of investigating the Christian faith and the person of Jesus Christ. Yet beyond being a jump start, framed in an interesting fictitious scenario, the book leaves much to be desired. The reasoning and theological arguments are superficial and not very compelling if one were to want to be compelled. The scenario, a meeting of Jesus the Son of God with a modern man in the 21st century, being absurd makes it difficult to believe the author would actually have a clue what a meeting with Jesus would really be like. Since our best bet of an actual meeting with Jesus would be based on the four New Testament Gospels and the interactions others had with Jesus therein, than Mr. Gregory has certainly relied instead on his own imagination, disregarding a characterization of Jesus that would more aptly coalesce with the Gospel accounts. Jesus in the novel Dinner with a Perfect Stranger is contrived and seems mostly concerned about conveying his logical points reasonably and clearly, giving lucid answers to Nick's questions. Yet Jesus of the Gospels is less concerned with man’s logic and reason, made foolish by God, and focuses on teaching by example, speaking in parables and veiling his wisdom. While the Jesus in the novel does not contradict Jesus of the Gospels directly, the premise of his appearance and conversation as actually something mere mortal man could dream up is incongruous. Ultimately, I would recommend this book to some individuals, those who are put off by the complexity and breadth of the Bible itself or rigorous philosophical and theological arguments. If one seeks a quick read with a provoking premise and is seeking an introduction to the answers to the various faith stumbling blocks, Dinner with a Perfect Stranger: An Invitation Worth Considering would be worth considering as a way to spend an afternoon. For the rest, I’d just as well direct you to a children’s book fraught with Christian allusions or a fantastical allegory of the Christian faith like The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis or The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan, respectively. For a book intended to be an exercise in imagination and engagement with the character of God, this one just fails to satisfy.

    Like The Shack, this story opens with a mysterious invitation. But David Gregory's musings about a modern meal with Jesus proceed on more orthodox theological footing than William Young's fictional "weekend with God" did.Gregory is a charitable writer, and although his biographical snippet is careful to avoid identification with any particular denomination, his Reformation bias sometimes shows in this otherwise thoughtful book. For example, the skeptical businessman in the story asks Jesus if his family called him "Yeshua," and receives a reply to the effect that most of them did, but "James called me a few other things." The deadpan humor of that line betrays its author's apparent belief that the Virgin Mary had more than one child (making James a biological brother to Jesus, complete with the sibling rivalry that implies). Gregory knows enough about his subject to recall that the original biblical languages do not preserve modern English distinctions between "hand" and "wrist" with regard to where Jesus had nail scars, yet (from a Catholic point of view) he still makes the typically Protestant mistake of forgetting that neither Aramaic nor ancient Greek made distinctions between "brother" and "cousin," either.Similarly, Jesus here astounds his guest by reminding the conflicted businessman that he lives in every Christian. Their subsequent conversation never revisits the biblical account of the Last Supper, as it would almost inevitably do in the hands of a Catholic author.In short, this book is not as nondenominational or ecumenical as it pretends to be. Nevertheless, I liked being reminded that the way to God is not a path, per se, but a person. It was also good to be shown through affecting analogies that God loves to restore relationships.The part of the conversation where Jesus explains our need for him and his role in salvation is not as well-developed as it could be, but interesting asides show that Gregory has done more "comparative religion" homework than many other writers.Dinner With a Perfect Stranger owes an unacknowledged debt to the famous C.S. Lewis formulation of Jesus as "Lord, Liar, or Lunatic." Anyone in the mood for Christian apologetics would do better to start with the meat-and-potatoes that Lewis offered. That said, David Gregory's contemporary traversal of some of the same ground remains a worthwhile read, and I am deeply grateful to the devout friend who inspired me to accept this engaging "dinner invitation."

    I liked this book because it catches the today life of many who were raised Christian or who are currently Christian and have slipped slowly away from walking with God. I also find that it is very encouraging in showing that God always wants to be there for you but you have to choose to except his invitation.Life seems so complicated and yet Christ shows that truly if you seek him and take refuge in his strength then you can get through anything. He's always there for you... you just have to call on Him and make a decision to always have him with you.I also like how this book went into differences of some religions and making sure the reader knows that Christianity isn't a religion but it's a relationship with Christ and walking with Him through the good and the bad times in life. This is a short good eye opening book.

    I found this book while taking care of a friend who was sick. It is a short and quick read and even if you already know Jesus, you find yourself wanting to know more. I have found this book to be a great eveangelism tool. I have given it to many and it is an uninvasive way to introduce Jesus to people who aren't always open to asking or being asked in person. I have found that many people do open it up and start reading and once they do they can't stop. I read the entire book to someone in 2 hours during a power outage. The thing is, after they read the book, they are open to discussing it and even asking questions. David Gregory has a follow up book called Day with a Perfect Stranger that is pretty good and also another book called the Next Level. Next Level may appeal more to business or tech people when it comes to evangelism, but it describes salvation in more of a business setting. Very interesting.

    I own this book on CD and this was my second time listening to it. It's funny because the first time I read it was only a couple of years ago but I didn't remember anything at all about it. I'm not sure why though because once I got past the cheezy beginning where he's trying to figure out who's playing a trick on him this time, I really enjoyed it. Although this is certainly not an in depth study of Christianity, it's not meant to be that either. I really liked the analogies used throughout the story and the examples given. It's a simplified way of explaining Christianity to someone who wants to believe in something, but they're not quite sure what to believe in or why the beliefs of Christianity are right thing to place their faith in.This was a good book for me to read right now b/c I'm having my own crisis of faith, and some of the examples given in this story really spoke to me in a way I needed to hear it.

    A skeptic is invited to dinner with Jesus of Nazareth. He goes thinking it's a joke. As the evening goes on, he agrees to be open to the idea that this is for real, and hits Jesus with everything he can think of. He is surprised by the results. This nice little book covers most of the issues raised in considering Christianity. • Christianity compared to other religions • Many roads to God?• Christianity vs. religion• Moral absolutes• Will your good outweigh your bad?• Justice and Mercy• The historical verification of the Bible• Jesus' life and death proven through history• Is Jesus God?• The validity of the disciples' reports: who dies for something they know is a lie?• Creation declares God as Creator• Intelligent Design• Heaven and Hell• Why do bad things happen?• Eternal Life can start now, on EarthAll this is covered as the two have a fancy dinner. The conversational style is quite believable. A nice, quick read.

    I thought this book was a very thought provoking, interesting read, I actually would like to give it 3 1/2 stars. I read it in a couple of hours and I found that it is an inspiring read even if you are a nonbeliever or your religious background doesn't support the author's depiction of Jesus. I loved the way Jesus was portrayed, as an intelligent, educated, soft-spoken, and loving individual. He was also very human in that he was humorous and witty and loved the same kind of things we all enjoy here on Earth. I pictured myself having dinner with him and how at ease I would have been and what questions I may have asked that were different from the authors. I thought the author did a great job with this book--he had the main character ask some profound and difficult questions, and I felt they were answered with sincerity and love. What an interesting book this was and I highly recommend it to those of any faith.

    What would you do if you received an invitation to have dinner with Jesus? After receiving his invitation, Nick must decide what to do. Surely this is a joke planned by his friends. When he shows up for his dinner date, however, he realizes that this was certainly an elaborate hoax that has taken an inordinate amount of time for his friends to pull off or is this perhaps not a joke at all? Nick has taken some coursework on religion so he figures he will have a go at his companion and ask some very hard questions to see how "Jesus" handles them. The book is well thought out, makes some good arguements and was put together in an intriguing manner. I would love to have this for a Bible Study.

    This book was recommended to me by my wife and here I must say thank you. Nick receives a dinner invitation to a nice Italian restaurant, from Jesus. Thinking his friends are pulling a prank on him he decides to go to the restaurant at the appointed time. What ensues is a very interesting dinner conversation that the reader is drawn into. I felt that this book spoke well to my beliefs and I enjoyed it very much. For others not of the Christian persuasion there may be some parts that would be upsetting. However at only 100 pages I say go ahead and read this one. What harm can come of it. Perhaps you will be the recipient of a dinner invitation. I hear the tiramisu is very good.

    I was very pleasantly surprised by this read as its purported purpose and its small gift-like size made me hesitant to even open it. While indeed silly on some levels (how could it not be), it ultimately managed to be charming, witty, and smartly written enough to easily win me over. The only negative I saw is that it is not a real meaningful read if you agree with the author as it is little more than a manifesto. Even then though, the shear talent shown in condensing such good theology into something so short, that reads with the comfortableness of a dinner conversation if you will, is fascinating enough to have made it enjoyable.

    As a pastor, I found this a very interesting read. On the surface, it's a bit far-fetched, and yet quite profound. Nick is a skeptic, and thinks his invitation to dine with Jesus is a joke perpetrated by his buddies. As the evening wears on, he begins to realize it is not a hoax, and he becomes intrigued by his host. I wanted to go back through the book and circle some of the answers Jesus gave because they are dead-on -- the kind of answers I wish I'd come up with. I have some theological issues with certain things the author puts in Jesus' mouth, but all-in-all, it's a great read for people who want to understand, and even accept the faith.

    I must admit that I enjoyed reading this book. In fact, I enjoyed it so much I recommended it to others. What irritates me, though, is the standard cheese-ball ending wherein some epiphany is proffered that is supposed to make the reader feel somehow closer to God. Well, I don't. Does that mean the book was not inspirational - not at all. It just wasn't to me. An excellent read, albeit predictable and "safe".

    This book was interesting. It's about a normal guy who receives a dinner invitation at a fancy Italian restaurant with Jesus of Nazereth. The guy thinks it's a hoax that his friends are playing so he goes along with it. At first he doesn't think that the other guy is Jesus. But as the dinner goes on it gets kinda strange 'cos the Jesus guy knows things about his life. Good book, short read (100 pages), and the theology was sound.

    I have always been taught or seen Christ a boring, enlightened, and reserved person. I like how this book gives a contemporary out look on Christ, with a little humor added in. That is the kind of God I serve. My God laughs, dances, and holds me so tightly in his arms, wisdom, and in his kingdom. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It would be a great book for a non-believer but yearns to gather information....to learn. Thanks
