"This man welcomes sinners and eats with them."

Luke 15:2 ESV

We worry about trying to build intentional relationships with non-Christians: Will we understand one another? Will we offend them? How uncomfortable will it be?

Jesus regularly ate with sinners—people in need of God, just like you and me. Why? Because Jesus longed to eat with them in heaven.

The incredible journey of following Jesus involves sharing who he is while sharing our lives with others. Over food and drink, through conversations filled with stories and insights, people come to know the love of God and the hope of salvation.

Eats with Sinners shows you how to let down your guard so God’s love can flow through you and get out across the table to your non-Christian friends. They’ll taste and see that the Lord is good as you invite them to one day feast with Jesus in heaven.

"If your heart beats passionately for people who have wandered far from God, you need to read this book today! In Eats with Sinners, Arron Chambers reminds us of the power of love in reaching people for Jesus. He reminds us that love is always the best context through which to share the truth. And, he reminds us that there are no lost causes."

Mark Batterson, New York Times best selling author of The Circle Maker, Lead Pastor of National Community Church

“Arron Chambers passion and heart for people come through powerfully in Eats with Sinners. This is a fantastic resource for all of us to be reminded and challenged by the way of Jesus. Arron points the way for engaging with the purpose of Jesus in practical and inspiring ways.”

Jud Wilhite, Central Church, Las Vegas

"It's so easy to forget that the people who live on our streets, the people we see on the news who believe differently than we do, those whose lifestyles may make us uncomfortable, all bear the holy image of God and carry the same fears, the same loneliness, the same ultimate longings that Christians do. EATS WITH SINNERS is a gentle call to emulate a God who, when we were still far off, met us in Christ and brought us home."

Andrew Peterson, Christian Recording Artist and author of the award-winning Wingfeather Saga

Vince Antonucci image

"Jesus was called a "friend of sinners." We are supposed to be friends with sinners. In fact, if you're not close to some people who are far from God, you may not be as close to God as you think you are, because God's heart is always with those who are far from Him. In "Eats With Sinners" Arron Chambers will inspire you to get closer to some people who are far from God and to love them like Jesus did."

Vince Antonucci, Lead Pastor of Verve Church and author of God For The Rest Of Us

Kyle Idleman image

"I love that each chapter of this book focuses on a character trait that Christians should cultivate. God always wants to do work in us before He works through us. Let this book help mold your heart as the Spirit changes you—and then He may just use you to change the lives of the people around you."

Kyle Idleman, Bestselling author of Not a Fan and Grace is Greater
