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.

Taking Your Place at the Table is the first of its kind on the art of becoming an insider. It focuses closely on three topics: 1) getting to the table—moving from the outside to the inside; 2) using your insider status wisely once you get there; and 3) leaving the table gracefully when the time is right. Joseph JB Bensmihen has fine-tuned the art of getting to the table—while becoming a millionaire and a highly successful business leader. He has given hundreds of talks at a wide range of venues, from Chautauqua Institute to Yeshiva University to Friendship Circle events. At age six, he talked his way into a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau; since then he has met with three presidents, Vice President Pence, and many senators—and has advised multiple members of Congress.
