Item description for How Jesus Ended Up in the Food Court: 77 Devotional Thoughts You Never Thought About Before by Doug Mendenhall...

Overview
Doug Mendenhall has learned how to ask good questions: "Where would God go for a vacation?" "What if the devil had to update his hymnal?" "Who says the prodigal son didn't have fun?" "Which NFL team is # 1 in the Bible?" "How do you pray for the Easter bunny?" Since the summer of 2000 Doug has written a weekly newspaper column with two goals in mind. First, to help experienced Christians rediscover old jewels of truth from a new angle, so that they shine brightly even in jaded eyes. Second, to avoid using churchy words and a preachy tone of voice. Doug's wife says he's just weird. Maybe she's right, but Doug doesn't see why writing about something as awe-inspiring as divinity, humanity and eternity should be placid, predictable or tepid. This book contains 77 of his favorite "Soul Food" columns from the first five years. "I hope they feed your soul," he says, "even if they give you a touch of heartburn from that extra pinch of spice." Everyone will enjoy this collection of Christian parables, stories and musings sprinkled with humor and leavened with a love for the Word.

Reviews - What do customers think about How Jesus Ended Up in the Food Court: 77 Devotional Thoughts You Never Thought About Before?

Potato Chip Devotionals - You can't read just one!  Sep 30, 2006
I recently received this book as a gift and I have not been able to put it down. Mendenhall has truly been blessed with a God-given talent for words, parables, and metaphors. He can take something from memory lane, such as VBS cookies and church potlucks, and weave in a thought-provoking truth about God that applies to where we are today. Other devotions challenge and encourage us through sports stories and bible lessons. This book has something for people of all ages, walks of life, and spiritual depth. I plan to give way several copies as gifts later this year.
 
Refreshingly different - couldn't lay it down!  Aug 3, 2006
Doug Mendenhall has a superbly readable style of writing, and his approach to the Christian Faith, Jesus, and the Bible is humorous, and yet profoundly sincere.

He obviously has a deep faith, and a sound and well-versed theological background, but also has the gift of being able to convey The Truth in such simple imagery, which is a MUST READ for all ages!

I particularly liked his use of modern parables, and reckon that this book will, without doubt, soon be a best seller!
