The mysterious envelope arrives on Nick Cominsky's desk amid a stack of credit card applications and business-related junk mail. Although his seventy-hour workweek has already eaten into his limited family time, Nick can't pass up the opportunity to see what kind of plot his colleagues have hatched. The normally confident, cynical Nick soon finds himself thrown off-balance, drawn into an intriguing conversation with a baffling man who appears to be more than comfortable discussing everything from world religions to the existence of heaven and hell. And this man who calls himself Jesus also seems to know a disturbing amount about Nick's personal life.

Good casual read. Offered a different perspective for someone. New way to think on things

I read this book as a teenager, and I remembered some of it. I forgot just how wonderful the book is, however. The author explains well different religions and how they are different from true Christianity. The points that the author makes in this book are insightful, and I enjoyed rereading this book.

The writing is clear and simple, the message clear, and the love of God is shown through this portrayal of Jesus and how he searches for lost souls. All the wonderful promises that are fulfilled in this short, beautiful story makes me excited as I rediscover some things that I haven't thought about in a while. Everybody needs a reminder once in a while, and this book's approach to simple truths is a good way to get people to remember what they once thought, felt, or believed.

If any person is struggling to reconcile the Bible, Jesus, and God's love for sinners with the suffering and the claims of other religions, this is the book. I believe if a person is old enough to process the Bible and what it says about God, then I believe they are old enough to take in this delightful book. The amazing love of God brought me to tears by the closing sentence. A wonderful book full of truth and love, I recommend it to all who desire truth.

I had my doubts about this books when I started reading it. I loved it. The author related the true gospel of love and holiness of God in a "I want to read more" way. Thank you David Gregory for straying a bit from the real message of God's love and justice . I absolutely identified with the ending. A very good worthwhile read.

This book makes you think about how you would react if such an invitation was given to you. Thought provoking

This was a best seller? They made a movie out of it? While the premise is unique and holds potential, the book itself is unremarkable and more than a little self serving. At best, average. At least at 100 pages, it won't take much time for readers to come to their own conclusions.
