Table Experiment by Ryan J Pelton is the first book I downloaded to read on my Kindle. To be honest I bought it because it was only 99 cents and I wanted to see how my new reader worked.
I have to say it was the best 99 cents I've ever spent and I feel this book is worth so much more. It's only 4 chapters and around 20 pages in total but straight forward and to the point. I read it in less than 20 minutes and it inspired me to take up the challenge and do my own table experiment.
The chapters include:
The Forgotten Art of Hospitality
Eating Like Jesus
The Table Experiment
5 Simple Way to Love Your Neighbors
The author writes about the act of simply opening our home and inviting someone in to share a meal. Just a simple meal. Nothing elaborate or fancy and I like that.
A short quote from the book:
"My hope and prayer for this book is to explore how we can implement the art of hospitality back into the daily rhythms of life. Where our tables can be places of love, grace, community, mission, and forgiveness. The common meal and the common table can become places where friendships are formed and cultivated. Where the gospel of Jesus Christ is shared in word and deed over food and drink." Ryan J Pelton 2013
I encourage you to spend less than a dollar and check out this little book. There's a lot of lonely people out there that would love to have a plate at your table.
BTW: I reviewed this book because I bought it and I really like it. I'm not being compensated in any way.
