Product Description

Stuck with each other for the night, they deal with their core prejudices, the walls that keep them from each other, and the discovery of their God-given humanity in one another. When talking about race, it helps to have something specific to talk about---a story we can all wrap our heads around. In Meals from Mars, Ben Sciacca provides that story: two men from different worlds forced by circumstance to see and hear and consider one another. It is a novel that demonstrates the social challenges and relational potential for racial reconciliation.

Unabridged audio CD; approximately 6 hours; 5 CDs; read by Brandon Batchelar.

Publisher's Description

It's hard to talk about race and reconciliation. It helps to have a story we can all wrap our heads around...

Jim fumbled for the door lock, but it was too late. Malik had jumped inside. Malik didn’t remember pulling the gun out of his waistband, but now it was pointed straight at Jim.

"C’mon, man!" Malik yelled as he half-ducked under the dash. "They’re gonna kill me! Get us outta here!"

So begins a night of tension, anxiety, and difficult conversations for Malik, a young black man from the inner city, and Jim, a middle-aged white man from the suburbs. Brought together by tragic circumstances, they must learn to trust each other through mutual understanding, which means looking past their prejudices to truly see each other...

    Meals From Mars does for prejudice what The Shack did for grace. Two men find themselves running - from police and each other. They need to learn to trust each other if they are going to survive and they do that in a small unoccupied camping cabin outside of town. It would be a difficult conversation, but one that had to take place.

    Jim was delivering the groceries from Mars Chapel to Maliks grandmother. On the way home he stops for gas at a local mini mart. In the process, he is caught up in a robbery that Malik also wants to run from. For the next 20 hours they are stuck together - but able to discuss the miles and lives that separate them. Jim is willing to learn, even if it means sacrificing a bit of peace at home. But what he learns are important for all of us that care for the poor in our own communities.

    The author the executive director of a faith-based school that works with at-risk children in Birmingham, AL. Each faculty and staff member are asked to consider living in the vicinity of the school - making them stakeholders in the ministry, not just employees. Ben Sciacca writes as one who lives with and understands the problems being faced by the poor in America. The book needs to be read by pastors, the members of the local mission committee, and all who care or want to care for own poor in their own community.
