Dinner With King Solomon - Matshona T. Dhliwayo

 

Kevin has lost his business (due to a corrupt partner), his marriage (she left him for more money), and his children (they vie for the attention of their mother's new boyfriend because of what he can by them more than Kevin) and is overwhelmed with depression and on the verge of suicide in his ratty apartment when there is a knock at the door. He opens it and it is King Solomon. Kevin thinks someone is playing a prank, or this guy is dressed in costume for a party.... but Solomon asks if he can come to dinner in a few days and Kevin thinks he is hallucinating. Dinner??? Kevin hasn't eaten in days-- there is no food in the house, he has no money, his water has been shut off for a while... how could he possibly make dinner for a guest? Then Solomon gives him a bag of gold coins, tells him when they have dinner Kevin will be able to ask him any and all questions he desires, and leaves. When Kevin awakens the next more he is sure that it was all a crazy dream until he comes across the gold. The sale of one coin solves all of his immediate problems and he begins to research Solomon at the library and by calling a friend in seminary. Kevin has never been one for religion, so even if this is Solomon, he thinks all of the hype about him is way over-rated. So Kevin starts to compile a list of questions that have caused much debate throughout history and ones he is sure will stump Solomon.... he desires to prove that he really isn't so wise. When Kevin's dinner guest arrives, Kevin serves him a fine meal then begins the questions. As Solomon answers each one, Kevin's opinion is slowly changed to realize that this guy really is wise. The questions start to get a bit more personal regarding Kevin's mess of a life, and Solomon gives him advice that ends up totally turning his life around. I loved this book! I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review-- thank you! : )
