The kind of book that makes you step back and take a look at your own life. When I finished I had my own conversation with God and listened hard to hear what he had to say. I liked this book and have decided to keep it as a part of my permanent library to share with others.

In this book the main character gets a dinner invitation from Jesus. He takes it out of curiosity and ends up in a very nicely done conversation, where he gets to ask some hard questions. Well done in a hard to do genre.

What would you do if you received, in your office mail, an invitation to dinner with Jesus of Nazareth? Surely you'd have a question or two to ask Him, no matter how skeptical you might be. A short, quickly read novella packs a lot of thought-provoking ideas into its 104 pages.

A fictional story/conversation of what Revelation 3:20 might look like in a real, literal setting. A short, 100 page, book that is an easy read. Very tastefully done, profound, and reflective. Brief highlights include: there is no "path" to God, illustration of God's righteousness, the free gift of salvation, and Revelation 3:20. We will use it as a read-aloud or reader in our homeschool. Highly recommended.

I thought this was a great quick read, how awesome would it be to be able to sit down with Jesus and have such a conversation and to have you have questions answered.

An excellent book. Perfect for the whole family to listen to. It is funny at times and then brings the right amount of drama at the right time. It makes you think things through and to a higher level.

A joy to read and it only took me a few hours.
If you enjoy the Mitch Albom series of inspirational books, then you will like this book as well.

Haven't most of people (at one time or another) wanted to speak directly with a spiritual figure? If for no other reason than to ask a few simple questions. This book will give you the feeling of doing just that.

I only wish that the story would have been a little longer.

I have never been a religious person. I don;t know alot about the worlds religions, but I read this book hoping to understand some things. I enjoyed this. It really made me think about different aspects of God, and at one point as I read, I realized I was crying. It was very moving.

I didn't think this book was as good as everybody told me it was, but it was a quick read - finished it in one evening - so it was worth it. Written to explain why a relationship with Jesus Christ is the only true way to Heaven.

Excellent book. It must have some truth in since it's being unfairly critized by a couple of reviewers. I have given some as gifts, loaned some and recommend to all. Some say this book attacks other religions. Not so. What do you expect Jesus would say about religions where He is excluded? He would tell you the truth, maybe harshly. This book is very tactful and not attacking.

This was a very interesting book. Would you go to dinner at the invitation of a perfect stranger? Nick Cominsky did. The stranger identified himself as Jesus. He could talk about anything even personal things that a mere stranger would not know. Nick draws him out on the beliefs of Muslins and other religious groups. The stranger knows all the names of the serving staff. He wants to help Nick with the problems he is having at work. The stranger seems to have all the answers and a deep love for Nick. As he is leaving in his car, Nick checks his rear view mirror and finds Jesus is already gone. Was it possible that the stranger really was Jesus?

Interesting little book, not exactly what I thought it would be. Read it in one sitting, exactly 100 pages. I did not like how other religions were attacked, but other parts were thought provoking. 3 stars

A very good fictional story that reveals the powerful truth of the gospel. Jesus loved you just the way you are. Inteteresting concept and a very quick, powerful read. Loved it.

The story is very engaging, and uses a five course meal as a metaphor for a deep discussion about faith between a high-class business man and Jesus. I appreciated how the author depicted Jesus as one that is easy to talk to and who respected modern day culture. I also appreciated that the author emphasized that in Christianity, a relationship with Jesus is key - not good works or performance. However, even as a Christian, this was a bit much on the evangelical side for me. It is clear that the author wrote this to "reach" non-Christians and to try to explain the Gospel in a different, more relatable way (to some). However, I did not appreciate that he said that other religions are "wrong." As a Christian, I do believe Christ is center to faith, but I also believe that Jesus would respect other faiths and not speak negatively of them. This is definitely a controversial book amongst Christians (and non-Christians). The story is intriguing (what would it be like to have dinner with Jesus?), but I don't find that this kind of work is necessarily appealing to non-Christians. If you are not interested in Christian evangelism, you probably would not like this book.

Someone suggested that I read this after I fell in love with THE SHACK. It doesn't compare. It is an easy read, but I didn't completely enjoy it.

Nick Cominsky has the opportunity to have a conversation with a man called Jesus who knows a disturbing amount of information about him. Their conversation touches on life, God, pain, faith and doubt and it may change his life forever. A quick, but meaningful read.

This story seemed to be something of a repository for the author's favorite arguments in favor of Christianity, but some of them were interesting. Not Sovereigntist (/Calvinist/Reformed).

A very unaccepting view of other religions. I read 1/2 before I gave up in disgust!

This was a very simple and inspiring book which my husband and I enjoyed and passed on to our friends to read.
