In a culture built on consumption--especially of food--it is easy to forget the poor that Jesus cared so much about. Following the pattern of his successful Advent Conspiracy, Chris Seay invites readers on a journey of self-examination, discipline, and renewed focus on Jesus that will change their lives forever.

He challenges readers to eat like the poor for forty days in solidarity with a much-neglected group of people, and to donate the money they save on groceries to a charity or project that serves the poor in concrete ways. But he doesn't expect them to go it alone. A Place at the Table includes a short chapter for each of those forty days with Scripture, reflections, prayers, encouragement, and tips for engaging the whole family in the process. The six-session DVD, shot in such locations as the Holy Land, Haiti, and Ecuador, will help small groups and entire churches go on a passionate journey of radical faith, personal action, solidarity with the poor, and extravagant grace.

From the Back Cover:

"A Place at the Table is a journey of surrender to God that will usher us to transformed living."--Lysa Terkeurst, New York Times bestselling author of Made to Crave

In a culture built on consumption--especially of food--it is easy to forget the poor that Jesus cared so much about. We get caught up in acquiring, buying, getting, eating. Yet paradoxically, the more stuff we consume the more our spirits wither and starve.

A Place at the Table invites you on a journey of self-examination, discipline, and renewed focus on Jesus that will change your life forever. Author Chris Seay is giving you a challenge--eat like the poor for 40 days and donate the money you save on groceries to a charity or project that serves the poor in concrete ways.

But Chris doesn't expect you to go it alone. This DVD includes six sessions, shot in such locations as the Holy Land, Haiti, and Ecuador, to help small groups and entire churches go on a passionate journey of radical faith, personal action, solidarity with the poor, and extravagant grace.

The companion book includes forty short chapters with Scripture, reflections, prayers, and encouragement. Download free resources and connect with others on the journey at www.chrisseay.net.
