“Someone once challenged me: “I bet I can tell you

the whole Old Testament and New Testament in six sentences- three for each.”
“You’re on!” I said. He started with the Old Testament: “’They tried to kill us. We survived. Let’s eat!’”
My friend went on. “’Now here’s the New Testament in three sentences: “I love you! I forgive you! Let’s eat!’”

From tablet to table is divided into two parts: Table It and Life’s Three Tables that reflect on a simple piece of furniture and its symbolic significance to Jesus and his teachings referencing food. You will learn several biblical verses that share the importance of breaking bread with loved ones and your enemies while discussing likes, dislikes, and differences of opinion over a meal.

Part II: Life’s Three Tables lends direction on “setting the table at home, at, church, and in the world.” Leonard Sweet reminds us to have meals “at the table” at home with your family igniting discussions on sharing the day’s events, concerns that might need attention or helpful suggestions in solving a problem. Bringing family and friends to the dinner table over a meal at home has almost been lost to a “fast-food society and smorgasbords.”

From tablet to table has insightful information regarding Jesus and the way he used food (set the table) to relay some of his teachings to all people from different walks of life, whether they were friends or enemies. I recommend reading for anyone interested in sharing ideas, Christian values, everyday struggles, and personal testimonies by putting it on the table while sharing a good meal.

I received this book free from Tyndale Publishing in exchange for an honest opinion in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission.
