Nick Cominsky’s spiritual life is running on empty. With his passion diluted by religious routine and the sapping circumstances of everyday life, he longs to reconnect with God, but following the standard spiritual prescriptions just isn’t working. Since when did loving God become such an overwhelming, tedious task? After meeting Jesus in person under amazing circumstances six years ago, Nick figured life would be smooth sailing, not coasting downhill. Why didn’t Jesus tell him how to make the Christian life work? Just when Nick is stopped dead in his tracks—stranded on the side of the highway with an empty gas tank and miles to go—he finds himself in rich company once more. Jesus has returned to give Nick the refueling he desperately needs. And like their first meeting, it’s not at all what he expects. “You must know, in the depths of your being, how deeply you are loved.” On a highway of unusual adventures, Nick finds that a Night with a Perfect Stranger might be just what he needs to make it back home.

I knoI know the other reviewers think I am crazy but I did not like this book at all. I truly enjoyed Dinner with a Perfect Stranger but not this one. In Dinner Nick was an Agnostic who was unsure of his true feelings about God. His parents had divorced when he was 16 and he had idolized his father and had lost his closeness with him and had said but his father had not lived that much longer anyway. He was an intelligent man who was asking Jesus questions about other religions which he had studied in college.

In this book, his father is resurrected and is still married to he mother. He is arguing with him saying his father never approved of anything he did. He is now referred as a former atheist. He comes across as a sniveling whining adult. Always complaining about why me. Why is Mattie (his wife) closer to God than I am. Why can't I do anything better, etc. He constantly complained about his sins. Jesus kept telling him that they were forgiving when he died on the cross but Nick could not get that through his thick head. If I could I would have put my hand through my Kindle and slapped him in the face a couple of times myself.

I kept reading this book hoping it would get better but for me it never di. I am very disappointed. One reviewer said to read it twice, I sorry I read it once. .

Several years ago a friend gifted me with David Gregory's bestseller, Dinner with a Perfect Stranger. I enjoyed the book so much that I read the sequel, A Day with a Perfect Stranger. I rarely read fiction, but since I liked Gregory's first two books in this series (and because the book was only a few bucks), I downloaded this third book. Part of the reason the Perfect Stranger series has appealed to me is that they have been a nice break from the typical reading I do.

The basic premise of Night with a Perfect Stranger is a businessman, Nick, has a second face-to-face encounter with Jesus. Although Nick grew in his faith after meeting Jesus at an Italian restaurant six years ago, he had not been growing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus in recent years. Things changed for Nick after he got into another conflict with his dad and while driving home, Nick's U-Haul truck runs out of gas. Jesus shows up with a gas can and hops in the truck. It sounds pretty cheesy, but Gregory did enough to keep me intrigued.

As far as the theology in Night with a Perfect Stranger, there were some statements in the second half of the book that were a little confusing and could use some clarification. Some examples include sin doesn't matter as far as God's love, we are brought into the heart of the Godhead to be one with them, being a part of Jesus, and everyone is an expression of Christ. I am sure there will be some thinking I am overanalyzing what many consider to be a light read. Despite what kind of work one categorizes Night with a Perfect Stranger as a crucial subject matter has been written about so I believe we should properly reflect upon it.

I did initially enjoy reading Night with a Perfect Stranger, but after several chapters of this 12 chapter book (144 pages), I realized I had lost that lovin' feelin'. Along with some of Gregory's unique wording, I feel if I hadn't read the first two books in the series than I would have different thoughts about Night with a Perfect Stranger. A lot of Amazon reviewers gave Night with a Perfect Stranger favorable views, but it should be noted that it appears that many of them did not read the first two books. Night with a Perfect Stranger's familiar formula was fine, but I do not see myself picking up another book like this anytime soon.

Biblical yet touching into my own metaphysical experiences, this book is very encouraging towards further Bible studies as well as reaffirming that ‘God Is Love’. Like drops of water in the ocean – it connects to the thought that we are in and of God and through God’s Son and Spirit we can experience that love. It echoes Science of Mind studies, interdimensional thinking and explains confusing Biblical concepts through the character of Nick gaining realization of Jesus within. I found it to be inspiring and encouraging in my own faith in God. It would also make a perfect group study resource.

I love David Gregory's books, and this latest short novel doesn't fail to satisfy. Once again we meet Nick, six years after his dinner with Jesus. He is angry, confused, and disgusted with his inability to live the Christian life. After an ugly scene with his dad, he walks into the night to drive home from Chicago to Cincinnati, only to run out of gas somewhere in the middle of Indiana. That's where he meets Jesus, once again, with a gas can ...

Like the other novels, the book consists mostly of conversations, with a couple of unexpected plot twists. By the end of the book Nick comes to understand that he doesn't have to wait to meet Jesus in person again(how many of us have the privilege?) because he is united with him in a surprising way, and wherever he goes, Jesus goes.

Nuggets of rich spiritual food; I just wished there was more. In the back of the book is a reference to a book he's written with Dan Stone called, The Rest of the Gospel: When the Partial Gospel Has Worn You Out Here the author develops his thesis in much greater depth.

This book in the trilogy is not as good as the outstanding Dinner with a Perfect Stranger but much better than the mediocre A Day with a Perfect Stranger. The premise of this one is that God lives within you-a concept the protagonist is having a difficult time understanding. The story is fairly long and involved-Jesus chats with Nick again in a long car drive, they minister to a porn addict at a truck stop. Jesus disappears and Nick has a minor car crash involving another member of his church. Finally, he gets to the hospital where his pregnant wife is waiting for him. Jesus is also at the hospital and Nick realizes Jesus was there all along. Sounds hokey but it works, although the story is quite long. I might have edited out the porn addict element, it's superflous. There is humor in the book and it's a pretty good read, but like I said, not as good as the first in the trilogy, which is really outstanding.
