What would you discuss over dinner with Jesus?

I'll be reviewing both this book and it's sequel this week. I hope you'll check back in to read. Here's the summary from the book's jacket:

What would you discuss over dinner with Jesus?

That's the dilemma facing cynical but successful businessman Nick Cominsky when he accepts an invitation to join Jesus of Nazareth for dinner at a local restaurant. Nick is convinced that his friends at work are pulling a prank. But the man sitting across from him appears to be quite serious, introducing himself as "Jesus. My family called me Yeshua."

Nick accepts hi dinner companion's suggestion to suspend his disbelief and "proceed as if I am Jesus." What follows is a fascinating conversation that covers family relationships, world religions, and the afterlife, among other topics. Along the way, Nick confronts his own unfulfilled longings, spiritual uncertainties, and anger with God--and he begins to wonder if the man across from him holds the answers to his deepest questions.
