About This Book
La Conversación continúa.Lo último que quería era hablar de Dios.Hablar con él ni le había cruzado por la mente.Mattie Cominsky es una madre dedicada a su familia que se siente abandonada por su esposo, un adicto al trabajo. Cuando su esposo llega a casa un día con el cuento de que acaba de cenar con Dios, Mattie piensa que ha llegado el momento de ponerle fin a su matrimonio ingrato. Convencida de que Nick se ha vuelto un fanático religioso, Mattie —una agnóstica—, ve en un viaje de negocios la oportunidad ideal para reflexionar sobre su matrimonio y el camino que su vida ha tomado.Una vez en el avión, Mattie siente cierto alivio al descubrir que su vecino de asiento comparte su desprecio por la religión. Después de relatar el giro inesperado en la vida de su esposo, la conversación entre los dos no tarda en convertirse en una fascinante exploración de la espiritualidad, Dios y la búsqueda de una comunicación trascendente.A medida que el escepticismo de Mattie se expresa ante la visión perceptiva de este desconocido, ella se enfrenta a su anhelo secreto de una verdadera intimidad y una realización duradera. Y cuando él aborda ciertos acontecimientos en la vida de ella de los que nada podría saber, Mattie comienza a preguntarse si no ha juzgado mal no sólo a Nick sino también al Dios en que ahora dice creer. ¿Quién es este hombre que parece conocer los rincones más secretos de su alma?

    Dinner with a Perfect Stranger
    An Invitation Worth Considering
    You are Invited to a Dinner with Jesus of Nazareth The mysterious envelope arrives on Nick Cominsky’s desk amid a stack of credit card applications and business-related junk mail. Although his seventy-hour workweek has already eaten into his limited family time, Nick can’t pass up the opportunity to see what kind of plot his colleagues have hatched…   The normally confident, cynical Nick soon finds himself thrown off-balance, drawn into an intriguing conversation with a baffling man who comfortably discusses everything from world religions to the existence of heaven and hell. And this man who calls himself Jesus also seems to know a disturbing amount about Nick’s personal life. ………….. “You’re bored, Nick. You were made for more than this. You’re worried about God stealing your fun, but you’ve got it backwards.… There’s no adventure like being joined to the Creator of the universe.” He leaned back off the table. “And your first mission would be to let him guide you out of the mess you’re in at work.” …………. As the evening progresses, their conversation touches on life, God, meaning, pain, faith, and doubt—and it seems that having Dinner with a Perfect Stranger may change Nick’s life forever.

    A Day with a Perfect Stranger

    A Day with a Perfect Stranger
    What if a fascinating stranger knew you better than you know yourself? When her husband comes home with a farfetched story about eating dinner with someone he believes to be Jesus, Mattie Cominsky thinks this may signal the end of her shaky marriage. Convinced that Nick is, at best, turning into a religious nut, the self-described agnostic hopes that a quick business trip will give her time to think things through. On board the plane, Mattie strikes up a conversation with a fellow passenger. When she discovers their shared scorn for religion, she confides her frustration over her husband’s recent conversion. The stranger suggests that perhaps her husband isn’t seeking religion but true spiritual connection, an idea that prompts her to reflect on her own search for fulfillment. As their conversation turns to issues of spiritual longing and deeper questions about the nature of God, Mattie finds herself increasingly drawn to this insightful stranger. But when the discussion unexpectedly turns personal, touching on things she’s never told anyone, Mattie is startled and disturbed. Who is this man who seems to peer straight into her soul? From the Hardcover edition.

    The Last Christian

    The Last Christian
    A Novel
    In the future, it’s possible to live forever—but at what cost?   A.D. 2088.   Missionary daughter Abigail Caldwell emerges from the jungle for the first time in her thirty-four years, the sole survivor of a mysterious disease that killed her village. Abby goes to America, only to discover a nation where Christianity has completely died out. A curious message from her grandfather assigns her a surprising mission: re-introduce the Christian faith in America, no matter how insurmountable the odds.   But a larger threat looms. The world's leading artificial intelligence industrialist has perfected a technique for downloading the human brain into a silicon form. Brain transplants have begun, and with them comes the potential of eliminating physical death altogether—but at what expense?    As Abby navigates a society grown more addicted to stimulating the body than nurturing the soul, she and Creighton Daniels, a historian troubled by his father's unexpected death, become unwitting targets of powerful men who will stop at nothing to further their nefarious goals. Hanging in the balance—the spiritual future of all humanity.   In this fast-paced thriller, startling near-future science collides with thought-provoking religious themes to create a spell-binding "what-if?" novel.
