A Day with a Perfect Stranger

A Day with a Perfect Stranger
Author: Gregory, David
Publisher: WaterBrook, 101 pages

What would happen if you began to vent about your problems to a perfect Stranger, only to discover that He knows all about you? In this novel, David Gregory addresses this "What if?" question.

Mattie Cominsky is increasing concerned about her husband's belief that he met Jesus at an Italian restaurant. If that weren't bad enough, Nick's passion for this Jesus begins to separate them, and Mattie entertains the idea of a divorce. A timely out of town meeting, gives Mattie the opportunity to think through her problems. The day doesn't look good when she's seated in her airplane seat, squished between two strangers. But when one begins to share her scorn of religion she opens her mind and wonders how her heart can be so touched.

I found this little book intriguing. It made me consider, both how God might perceive our religion as well as how others might perceive us. It also was a good reminder that a personal relationship with God our Father is as tangible as touching the stranger next to you.

I read Dinner With A Perfect Stranger. The story was somewhat intriguing but I didn't enjoy it as much as most other Christian novels I've read. Why? I guess because it reminded me of a study guide more so than a piece of fiction? I could see using that little book to convince atheists and agnostics that Jesus does indeed exist.
