4.0 out of 5 stars authentic table ministry, 21 Jan 2012
This review is from: Meal with Jesus, A (Paperback)
This is a pacey, if short theology of food, presenting "Jesus came eating and drinking." Chester well reasons that the taste of the Kingdom was revealed through Jesus'basic missional strategy in eating with people. I particularly enjoyed the `Meal as enacted community' chapter and the richness of this sweep of Luke's gospel record. Some parts have a curious exegesis, obviousness or a stretch, but the power and centrality of Christ's activity with people is well made.

This reads as a clarion call to organic mission through our relational activity with all who come to eat food in our homes. The simplicity and power of discipleship and mission based our life over meal is worthily and very well portrayed here. Don't started a church activity - just open your home! It builds well on previous writing themes of gospel, suffering and glory. Gritty, gospel-rich, accessible and more than a little inspiring!
