If a meal is a metaphor for a relationship, then there's no better way to describe God's purpose for his people than as an invitation to a meal with the Maker. In Come Eat With Me, Rob Douglas explores hospitality as a biblical theme and a description of a rich relationship between God and humanity, highlighting the benefits and challenges along the way. ""Table, plate, cup--few things are more domestic or ordinary. In the hands of Rob Douglas, however, they become symbols of divine-human hospitality. By interlacing short, imaginative retellings of biblical stories with evocative personal experiences, Douglas invites us to feast on a big idea--God wishes to dine with us. A book to savour and enjoy."" --Sheridan Voysey, writer, speaker, broadcaster, and author of The Making of Us: Who We Can Become When Life Doesn't Go as Planned ""Come Eat With Me is a lovely book on life and hospitality, soaked in Scripture and narrative, and written with a warm and generous spirit. Rob Douglas knows the power of story, and the stories in this book are moving and exquisitely told.

I found this book inspiring, and wholeheartedly commend it to you."" --Graham Hill, Senior Lecturer in Theology at Morling Theological College, author of GlobalChurch and Healing Our Broken Humanity ""Not only is Rob Douglas the consummate host, welcoming us into his world with warmth and kindness, he is also a gifted storyteller, bringing to life tales from both the world of the Bible and our own in a way that stretches and inspires.
