Chester challenges contemporary understandings of hospitality as he urges us to evaluate why and who we invite to our table. Learn how you can foster grace and bless others through the rich fare being served in A Meal with Jesus.

Tim Chester has a keen ability to reflect on gospel, community, and mission, making them accessible to the common person through the mess and movement of everyday life. Tim certainly accomplished this again in A Meal with Jesus. With each meal, my convictions about how the gospel informs all of life and relationships went deeper, and my affections for Jesus grew stronger. I want everyone in my church to read this book.

A Meal with Jesus

Tim Challies,, 21 Jun 2011

Overall, this book shares a compact biblical theology of hospitality, focusing on meals. Chester makes a compelling argument that we would do well to view our meals through a biblical lens and to see each one as an opportunity to discover grace, community and mission. And since most of us eat 3 meals per day, we have endless opportunities to put into practice what we discover. So why don’t you give this one a read?... continue reading

“Deep and uplifting”

(Review written for 'A Meal with Jesus (ebook)')

Another cracker from TC! We see Jesus' heart for the outsider and the importance he placed on table fellowship, while also hearing the challenge of how our lives can be changed through the Spirit's work as we seek to reflect Christ's priorities.

“a great spur to get stuck in”

The only book that has managed both to get me excited about Scripture and get me to rearrange my living room simultaneously! A great book to get us all thinking about howJesus used his meal times and how we can use ours. And for people, like me, who aren't naturally talented at hospitality, it's a great spur to get stuck in and enjoy the opportunities that good food and good conversation can bring.

“" Feast of a Book"”

“This is a feast of a book, I have so far learnt that Jesus truly wants us to know who He is and why He came, and He says to do this around the table; in church, in our homes, having a coffee (Starbucks style) with a friend or neighbour. In this book you discover how easy it is to share God’s grace around the table: just as Jesus did….this book is a treasure!”
