Kat Davies is suddenly wondering if her good deed was a bad idea.

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 in 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.

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 supporter just wants to “pray about it,” Kat is forced to look deeper at her own motives. Only when she begins to look past the surface 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.”

“. . . the plot and characters remain fresh and vibrant, shining spiritual truth from each page.” —Romantic Times TOP PICK for Stand by Me

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lots to the story, but wishing for more I was quite excited to read this book because Neta Jackson is sooo popular and has sooo many books! 'Come to the Table' is the second book in the SouledOut Sisters series. I hadn't read the first one, but was told that they can certainly stand alone...which I found. I had no problems just jumping in. So my thoughts...I enjoyed the book, the characters are so easy to love, but there are so many characters and so many things going on that I felt a bit dizzy in a way, but I guess that will happen when you have house full of very real and very interesting characters! I found that it was easy for me to put the book down, but I did always want to pick it up again, though it did take me forever to read! I wish I'd got to know the major characters a bit better, they seem to have such a good story to them! Maybe that happens if you read book one? I may have mixed feelings, but I will definitely give Neta Jackson another try!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another great reat from Neta Jackson! Neta Jackson's second installment of the "SouledOut Sisters" series shines with grace, and challenges readers to consider how we can serve others like Jesus did. Characters Kat and Nick return in fine form, growing in their understanding of who they are, who God has called them to be, and the possibility that they may have a future together! I love how the author creates characters with emotional depth, and I especially enjoyed watching Kat on her spiritual journey in this book, a woman who gets so passionate about her beliefs and sometimes runs ahead of what God may have for her. Come to the Table is sure to please readers who are already fans of Neta Jackson, and will likely attract new readers as well. The book is well-written, and I felt that overall the book moved along at a good pace. I don't always have patience with books where the romance takes a long time to unfold, but in this case the author has added some interesting elements that kept things moving well, such as roommate Rochelle and her desire to have a man like Nick be a good father to her son. The book features characters that readers will connect with, characters who struggle with the things in life that we all struggle with. I leave the book absolutely challenged to look at the world around me and consider how God wants me to be his hands and feet, how he wants me to "feed" others by meeting both their physical and spiritual needs. I leave thankful for time well spent in having been entertained while having my own spiritual life fed as well. I award this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.
