Night with a perfect stranger review

Night With a Perfect Stranger: The Conversation That Changes Everything

Six years ago, businessman Nick Cominsky encountered Jesus the old-fashioned way—in a face-to-face meeting. And the Christian life seemed a breeze . . . for a while. But now, having done everything he knows to grow spiritually, he wonders where his closeness with Jesus has gone. Burned out and hopeless, Nick wails his complaints to God during a late-night interstate trip. Then suddenly he runs out of gas—and finds Jesus along the roadside carrying a gas can.
Jesus hops in the truck and offers answers Nick never heard in church . . . and a nighttime of adventures ensues beyond anything Nick could have imagined.

My Review

This is the sequel to Dinner with a Perfect Stranger: An Invitation Worth Considering
(you can read my review here). Most Christians encounter a period on their walk with Christ where they feel like they have drifted away.  This book addresses that in such a way that you feel like Jesus is talking to you.  While it makes a great sequel, it would also be a good stand alone book.

I think this title is much better than the first, addressing many of the things that we struggle with.  Does God loves us even when we sin?  Why were we created if not to serve? This book reminds us that we are a PART OF JESUS.  Not only is he part of our life, but we are part of his, joined to him.

The author does a tremendous job of getting us to understand through these characters just how much God truly loves us and just how much our own hang ups are responsible for any separation we may feel between us and Him.  David Gregory reminds us to let Jesus lead, even when we don't see Him in the circumstances. 

Truly an inspired book and well worth the read!  It won't be available until March 2012 but I am already recommending it to friends!  Sound interesting?  You can read chapter one by clicking here.
