    I found this to be a very soothing book. There were times I laughed out loud, Jesus has a sense of humor! I don't think this book "lacks depth", I think it gives us a very simple message about Jesus and his purpose that we tend to over complicate. It's a book I will probably read again and I would like to read the others in the series. It is a quick read, probably took me an hour. Good for a seeker or a new Christian.

    This book covers many topics in a superficial manner - raises questions without answers too. Interesting read for someone with faith and understanding; not perhaps the best to use as an approach to a seeker though. Quick read.

    I read this short book in one night. I couldn't put it down. I have to be honest, I love reading David Gregory's books. His books are fun, not preachy and loaded with theological truth.

    I had this book sitting on a shelf for awhile and was prompted to read it this weekend. I understand why now. "Night With A Perfect Stranger" addressed a lot of my questions and concerns.

    "Night With A Perfect Stranger" was a healing balm for my anxious heart and questioning soul.

    I can't recommend this book enough.

    In conclusion, I want to thank Worthy Publishers for sending me a complimentary copy to review.

    This was the third book in a series, I loved the first two books and was not disappointed with this one. Great books to pass around.

    Night with a Perfect Stranger

    Six years ago Nick's life was changed when he had an unexpected invitation to dine with Jesus. Sure it was a practical joke, he went and encountered not a prankster, but the Risen Lord. Later his wife had a similar encounter. Those two powerful and bestselling parables( Dinner with a Perfect Stranger and A Day with a Perfect Stranger) by David Gregory gave readers intimate jolts as we pondered how we'd react to such personal visits from Jesus. Would we accept the stranger as Jesus or would we deny his presence? Would we change our lives immediately, or in the daylight of the next day, would we deny having met Jesus? Despite the slim size of each of those books, Gregory left readers with plenty to ponder.

    Night with a Perfect Stranger reconnects us with Nick six years later. He and his wife Mattie have settled into life as Christians. Settled doesn't sound appropriate does it? Well, for Nick that is the problem. He feels he has settled into a pattern of belonging to church and saying he is a Christian, but he is disappointed in himself and his growth. He is sure that Mattie is further ahead in her journey and he just can't seem to get back that ecstasy that he felt after meeting Jesus. Then Nick visits his parents in Chicago and old arguments surface causing Nick to take off in the middle of the night in the rented U-Haul truck. When he runs out of gas, he is rescued by a perfect stranger. What follows is another lengthy conversation with Jesus, another lesson in who we become when we accept Jesus and what it means to be loved by God.

    For me, many of the doubts and lows that Nick describes match feelings I've had at certain times. Gregory's books aren't about church; they are about a personal relationship with God and how that changes the spiritual person. Again, the format is more parable than story. I suggest more than one reading, and like many series, I would suggest reading all three books within a close time period.

    I received an advanced readers copy of this title. The review is my own opinion and I have not been compensated for this review.
