Come to the Table by Neta Jackson

In Come to the Table by Neta Jackson we once again visit with the Souled Out Sisters and, to an extent, the ladies of the Yada-Yada Prayer Group. Neta Jackson's character list is expandind, but they are all connected. A perfect book for those who want to feel like part of the family of believers in Chicago.

In this volume we follow Kat, Bree, and Nick as they navigate sharing an apartment together. Life isn't always easy for these three, but we get to watch as they grow with each other and in Christ. Kat sure has come a long way since we met her at the music festival where she came to know the Lord.

Some new emotions emerge in this book, and love blossoms in an unexpected place. 

I found myself again wavering between wanting to smack Kat and wanting to hug her. This is one well-written chick. Excellent series, which will not only entertain, but give you plenty to think about.

About the book:
Kat may be new in her faith, but she’s embraced the more radical implications of Christianity with reckless abandon. She invited Rochelle, a homeless mother, and her son to move into the apartment she shares with two other housemates. And she’s finally found a practical way to channel her passion for healthy eating by starting a food pantry at the church. And her feelings for Nick are getting harder to ignore. The fact that he’s the interning pastor at SouledOut Community Church and one of her housemates makes it complicated enough. But with Rochelle showing interest in Nick as a father-figure for her son, their apartment is feeling way too small.
But -- not everyone thinks the food pantry is a good idea. When the woman she thought would be her biggest support just wants to “pray about it,” Kat is forced to look deeper at her own motives. Only when she begins to look beyond food as an issue does she see people who are hungry and thirsty for more than just food and drink and realizes the deeper significance of inviting them to “come to the table.”
Kat must do some serious soul searching to determine where God is asking her to use her talents and passion . . . and what role she wants to play in Nick’s life.
From best-selling author Neta Jackson (has sold more than 700,000 books) her new novel embodies Matthew 10:42 “If you give a cup of cold water to the least of these you will surely be rewarded.”
