Come to the Table

Kat Davies is suddenly wondering if her good deed was a bad idea.

Kat may be new in her faith, but she’s embraced the more radical implications of Christianity with reckless abandon. She invited Rochelle—a homeless mother—and her son to move in the apartment she shares with two other housemates. And she’s finally found a practical way to channel her passion for healthy eating by starting a food pantry at the church.

Her feelings for Nick are getting harder to ignore. The fact that he’s the interning pastor at SouledOut Community Church and one of her housemates makes it complicated enough. But with Rochelle showing interest in Nick as a father-figure for her son, their apartment is feeling way too small.

But not everyone thinks the food pantry is a good idea. When the woman she thought would be her biggest supporter just wants to “pray about it,” Kat is forced to look deeper at her own motives. Only when she begins to look past the surface does she see people who are hungry and thirsty for more than just food and drink and realizes the deeper significance of inviting them to “come to the table.”

I was so excited to learn that the newest installment of Neta Jackson's SouledOut Sisters Series, Come to the Table was going to be available on Thomas Nelson Publishing's Booksneeze Blogger program! I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Neta Jackson has a way of creating flawed, real characters that the reader can relate to. The characters are all from extremely different backgrounds, and have to overcome bias and misconceptions in order to become successful. The faith displayed in the characters is both heartwarming and inspiring. I always finish these books feeling like I am a little bit renewed in my faith and hungering for the Word.  This book was no different, and I am so glad that I requested it! Highly recommended!
