A late night fateful encounter at a gas station in a gang run neighborhood brings together Jim, a white man from the suburbs and Malik, a young black man from an inner city neighborhood. Stuck with each other for the night through tragic circumstances, they must learn to trust and look past their prejudices to discover their God-given humanity in one another.

When talking about race, it helps to have something specific to talk about―a story we can all wrap our heads around. In Meals from Mars, Ben Sciacca provides that story: two men from different worlds forced by circumstance to see and hear and consider one another. It is a novel that demonstrates the social challenges and relational potential for racial reconciliation.
