Come Eat With Me By Rob Douglas–Book Review

Come Eat With Me!

By Rob Douglas

Reverend Rob Douglas is an Australian minister of a conservative denomination and in Come Eat With Me takes through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation writing stories with the theme of hospitality at their center.

Douglas presents the theology of the Bible centered around hospitality, and shows us God’s hospitality working with humanity.  Our meals are a metaphor for relationship, and God’s purpose is to invite us to a meal with our Creator. He highlights the benefits and the challenges but ultimately with the theme that in the end we sit down as a meal with God.

The theme that Douglas drives home is that God has offered us hospitality from the first moment of creation, and through the ages has continued, and that hospitality is both physical and spiritual nourishment. Those who follow Jesus are called to provide physical and spiritual nourishment to every human being regardless of race, creed, sexual orientation, or political-economic station in life.

Evangelism is bringing us all together under the banner of the One God, of many faces, providing for the spiritual and physical needs of all.

Fr. River Damien Sims, D.Min., D.S.T.
