Eats with Sinners by Arron Chambers Review
If you want to follow Jesus on the incredible journey of sharing Him while sharing life with others, it's time to eat with sinners--people just like you . . . and me.
As long as people have been sharing their faith, there have been critics. Even Jesus dealt with naysayers as He spread His gospel: "This man welcomes sinners and eats with them" (Luke 15:2, NIV). Sometimes we worry about our reputation when we spend time with non-Christians. But more than that, we worry about the time we spend with non-Christians: Will we understand each other? Will I offend them? Will they offend me? How long will it take before this relationship falls apart?
Every meal Jesus ate, He ate with sinners. And over food and drink, through stories and insights and observations and conversations, people let their guards down, and sinners came to know the love of God and the hope of salvation. Now revised and updated, Eats with Sinners helps you to let your guard down so the love of God can get out across the table to your non-Christian friends.
Note: This book was originally published by Standard Publishing in November 2009 (ISBN 0784723184). The NavPress version does not include recipes!
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review Q & A -
- What did you like about the book and why? It brings down barriers that some strict religious people might face in their belief.
- What did you not like about the book and why? I could not find any fault with the book, it is faith based and has the author's opinions over fact in most parts.
- What did you learn? If you apply yourself to your own ways and not that of others you may have a more positive life.
- To whom would you recommend this book and why? If you are closed hearted. If you feel better then others or more superior, this book may help to keep you a bit more modest.
