My Reading List Update: 12 Books in 12 Months

Today I finished reading “Dinner with a Perfect Stranger” in one day.  It came highly recommended, but I have to admit I wasn’t overly impressed.  It’s a fast read, only 100 pages.  It tells the story of Nick Cominsky, a businessman invited to a mysterious dinner with Jesus of Nazareth.  The text of the book is almost entirely a discussion between Nick and Jesus, touching on everything from Nick’s past to world religions.  The foundational concept of the book is Revelation 3:20.  This short read reminded me of The Shack by William Young.  I may be in the minority here, but I don’t particularly enjoy books that are primarily a discussion between two characters, especially a discussion of philosophy or apologetics.  I apologize to those of you who enjoy this genre, but I don’t think it’s for me.  🙂
