    I wasn t terribly crazy about this book I assumed it would be about one on one discipling and using meal times to break bread with those who are hurting There was a little of that, but it was farfocused on what churches as a whole can do to be welcome and inviting Such material is out there and it s been done better.Plus, the layout of the book looks like it was done in Word and the book sorely needed an editor as it went on strange tangents and went from one idea to the next without an I wasn t terribly crazy about this book I assumed it would be about one on one discipling and using meal times to break bread with those who are hurting There was a little of that, but it was farfocused on what churches as a whole can do to be welcome and inviting Such material is out there and it s been done better.Plus, the layout of the book looks like it was done in Word and the book sorely needed an editor as it went on strange tangents and went from one idea to the next without any transition Also, it had recipes that appeared through the book whenever the layout person felt it necessary The recipes weren t terribly groundbreaking and seemed to be pies and cookies and casseroles mostly that had been renamed to give them a godly title Last, Chambers makes a few comments which I think were jokes but read as being incredibly insensitive and arrogant.All in all, this book wasn t worth the time or money

    I ll admit, I was a bit disappointed as I started reading this book The build up was high, and while the book has some helpful tools and ideas, I had a hard time getting past the author s voice My expectations definitely changed my impression I was expecting apractical analysis of ways to, well, eat with sinners, and what the book really contains is a long series of exhortations to examine your heart and WANT to eat with sinners Which is not a bad thing to do, at all

    This book was incredibly frustrating Had it not been required reading for the training program I am in, I would not have completed it First of all, it is incredibly repetitive The entire book is summed up in the title, and everything else feels like a laborious repetition of it Also, it is an incredibly insensitive repetition of a beautiful concept put forth by Jesus The whole point of eating with other people who don t know Jesus is so that you can love them the way Jesus did and share tha This book was incredibly frustrating Had it not been required reading for the training program I am in, I would not have completed it First of all, it is incredibly repetitive The entire book is summed up in the title, and everything else feels like a laborious repetition of it Also, it is an incredibly insensitive repetition of a beautiful concept put forth by Jesus The whole point of eating with other people who don t know Jesus is so that you can love them the way Jesus did and share that love However, Arron Chambers consistently uses language and stereotyping that is not loving to the various people groups he refers to He even acknowledges the fact that the term lost people is seen as problematic in American culture, and yet persists in using it anyway Also, from a ministry side of things, his perspective is largely outdated and impractical Most people in the world are not working from a pastor of a mega church type background and he consistently uses examples that only apply in this setting In addition to this, none of the information he shares is practical I was hoping for a book that legitimately tells me how I can better eat with sinners I want to know how to love the various people around me well, who come from Muslim, Agnostic, Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, and various other religious backgrounds I want to know how to share Jesus well with people who have no knowledge of the Bible at all I want to know how to love and share and be with my friends who are currently celebrating Ramadan or who have don t know that Christmas isn t about the birth of Santa And this book did nothing but demonstrate a vague, yes, that s a good idea, in reference to my questions.If you are looking for a book that will help you in the area this book promises to, don t look here I would suggest a memoir like, I Dared to Call Him Father, by Bilquis Sheikh or nonfiction books like Serving God in a Migrant Crisis, or Mosaic by Jared Looney In the end, I do appreciate what Arron Chambers was trying to do And I am thankful that He does care about this topic But you would be much better off if you simply read the Gospels and then went elsewhere for practical wisdom and advice

    Theologically, this book is sound I feel that it could ve been condensed, but it had great points and ideas for tangible and realistic ways to reach those who don t know Jesus.

    Reading, Eats With Sinners , I really enjoyed the casual, conversational style with personal ancedotes that peppered throughout the book.It was a very challenging reminder of how we, as followers of Christ, sometimes play it too sense and sometimes, borderline Pharisee with our faith and in the process forget about the people whom our Saviour sought the most often.I was reminded of Mathew 9 9 12 NKJV 9 As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office And Reading, Eats With Sinners , I really enjoyed the casual, conversational style with personal ancedotes that peppered throughout the book.It was a very challenging reminder of how we, as followers of Christ, sometimes play it too sense and sometimes, borderline Pharisee with our faith and in the process forget about the people whom our Saviour sought the most often.I was reminded of Mathew 9 9 12 NKJV 9 As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office And He said to him, Follow Me So he arose and followed Him.10 Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples 11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners 12 When Jesus heard that, He said to them, Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick Matthew 9 9 12, New King James Version Eats With Sinners is a modern outlook that challenges the reader and the follower to redefine and relook how we follow our faith and to step out of our comfortable safety zones and life and truly follow our Father as He calls us to.This isn t about going to a far off country, but just the simple of act of ministry, straight from our front doors It could be our next door neighbors that rub us the wrong way, the homeless that we pass by each day on the highways and freeways, the single parent struggling down the street, our co workers, strangers we just meet by chance.Where ever we are, Eats With Sinners , asks us to lift up our veils and judgement and truly minister to those who need Him with our love, our care and our hearts.Simple we say,but often we forget to minister even just by our prescence at a resturaunt tables, where our actions speak louder than our words Ministering, doesn t have to be grand it can be something as simple as sitting down and having coffee with someone , as the publisher shares,In Jesus day, eating with someone acknowledged that person as an equal Religious leaders considered it unthinkable for a Jewish teacher to eat with common people But Jesus caredabout saving souls than saving face.So who are you eating with Eats with Sinners introduces a biblical model for evangelism building relationships like Jesus did, one meal or cup of coffee at a time.More unique features that could be found are easy to follow, actual recipes that are shared, sidenotes about traditions from Our Saviour s time,case studies and

    I was raised on Bill Hybels Becoming a Contagious Christian and have used that training program for personal evangelism is every congregation that I have served BCC has become the staple training material for personal evangelism because it builds on biblical teaching, draws from numerous personal stories, develops a user friendly conceptual construct and has lots of practical advice for implementing Hybels approach to sharing the faith However, the styles that Hybels developed have often I was raised on Bill Hybels Becoming a Contagious Christian and have used that training program for personal evangelism is every congregation that I have served BCC has become the staple training material for personal evangelism because it builds on biblical teaching, draws from numerous personal stories, develops a user friendly conceptual construct and has lots of practical advice for implementing Hybels approach to sharing the faith However, the styles that Hybels developed have often been criticized for pigeon holing individuals Additionally, it has now been around for 20 years, so it might be time for an update to meet new cultural conditions.I really liked Chambers book because it has many of the same features as Hybels classic Yet, instead of personality styles, he bases his argument for engaging in personal evangelism in character traits of faithful disciples like urgency, tolerance, mercy and humility This allows Chambers approach a wider spectrum of application because his method is truly rooted in relationship Also, I really appreciated the inclusion of a workbook whereas the BCC requires additional materials to get the full spectrum of materials And, since this is a book about eating with others, I thought the recipes scattered throughout were cool and useful

    Gave it 2 stars because of the writing style I love the man s heart and his message, but I honestly just don t think he s a good writer There were way too many one sentence or one word paragraphs, which upped the page count considerably There s also a lot of fat that could have been trimmed out I feel like he could have said all of the same things while using a third of the amount of words and the book would have been stronger for it because the reader wouldn t have to sift through all the i Gave it 2 stars because of the writing style I love the man s heart and his message, but I honestly just don t think he s a good writer There were way too many one sentence or one word paragraphs, which upped the page count considerably There s also a lot of fat that could have been trimmed out I feel like he could have said all of the same things while using a third of the amount of words and the book would have been stronger for it because the reader wouldn t have to sift through all the inconsequential fluff There are also these weird food recipes scattered throughout not sure why I guess encouraging hospitality with silly names like Darkness to Light Cookies and Compassion Chicken Noodle Soup And a final frustration was the author constantly sounded like someone who was not blessed with the gift of wit but desperately trying to be witty as opposed to someone like N D Wilson or G K Chesterton whom you can tell both have it just flowing out of them naturally I was rolling my eyes a lot reading this book

    This is an awesome book for anyone who wants to approach the world the way Jesus did I was reminded of my younger years when i was so busy in the church, I didn t have time for people outside the church, let alone have real friends out there That s pretty much the opposite of the way Jesus did it Arron Chambers was a recent guest on my show, Teen Talk Radio If you d like to hear him live, check him out here or on iTunes This is an awesome book for anyone who wants to approach the world the way Jesus did I was reminded of my younger years when i was so busy in the church, I didn t have time for people outside the church, let alone have real friends out there That s pretty much the opposite of the way Jesus did it Arron Chambers was a recent guest on my show, Teen Talk Radio If you d like to hear him live, check him out here or on iTunes
