There’s one word in my vocabulary that I’ve been struggling to wrap my mind around for over 10 years.
Such a small word with such a powerful meaning. And when you come to the point in your life where you learn of God’s Grace, it becomes even more powerful. Life changing powerful.
Bo’s Cafe is the most enjoyable fiction book on Grace that I have read thus far. As I began reading the story of Steven and his struggle with a life that on the outside looked perfect, I was drawn in.
Watching his life unravel because of his inability to understand grace and thinking he was the only one who could control his life was not only interesting but intriguing. I think one of the hardest things to understand is the realm of God’s grace. That it’s not what we do that earns it, but that’s it’s a gift.
Bruce McNicol, Bill Thrall, and John L Lynch have put together a wonderful work of fiction that will give any reader of Bo’s Cafe a new understanding of God’s grace. As the world struggles with a failing economy and government out of control, God’s grace needs to be shared more and more each day.
I love to give books out for Christmas gifts that share God’s amazing story of true love and grace. Bo’s Cafe will definitely be wrapped and put under my tree for my family and friends this year.
