‘Come to the Table’ disguises spiritual truth in a fascinating story

Come to the TableThree best friends, one homeless woman with HIV and her six-year-old son make unlikely roommates especially when the one man in the group falls in love with one of the women and another begins to have feelings for him.   That isn’t even the plot of this cute story.  Kat Davies is a new Christian filled with excitement and reckless abandon.  She is passionate about nutrition and believes that everyone should make healthy food choices but doesn’t realize that people living in poverty, especially the homeless, cannot afford the cost of eating fruits and vegetables.

As she comes to realize that food is not the answer, Kat begins to focus on the real issues of hunger and thirst for Christ.  She must also confront her motives.  Is she really wanting to help others or just gain recognition for herself?

In the midst of all of this, her relationship with her roommates comes to the forefront and she must trust God to take care of the details of her life.  Encouragement and affirmation come from some unlikely sources and Kat begins to see God working in and through her to bring comfort and hope to others.

Neta Jackson’s “Come to the Table” is a novel in the Yada Yada Prayer Group Series and the second book in the SouledOut Sisters series.  It releases this month from Thomas Nelson Publishers.

If you are looking for a light read with a heavy dose of spiritual truth, “Come to the Table” fits the bill.  You will laugh and cry with Nick, Kat, Bree, Rochelle and Conny as they live life together as Christians trying to find their place in the world.  Even if you haven’t read any of Jackson’s previous novels, you won’t have any problems catching up.  Now, if I could only find a group like the Yada Yada Prayer Group.
