The Gospel According to Starbucks

I picked up this book at the Central Atlantic Conference's Annual Meeting last week. So far it's a great and spiritually entertaining read. I enjoy reading optimistic books that seek to inspire rather than those books that nudge you in the right direction by telling you how everyone else does it wrong.

And, seeing how I am a caffine/coffee freak, I could relate to the author's correlation with the good feelings that a coffee house can give you.

Here is what the publishers say to entice the readers to read the book:

You don’t stand in line at Starbucks® just to buy a cup of coffee. You stop for the experience surrounding the cup of coffee. Too many of us line up for God out of duty or guilt. We completely miss the warmth and richness of the experience of living with God. If we’d learn to see what God is doing on earth, we could participate fully in the irresistible life that he offers.
You can learn to pay attention like never before, to identify where God is already in business right in your neighborhood. The doors are open and the coffee is brewing. God is serving the refreshing antidote to the unsatisfying, arms-length spiritual life–and he won’t even make you stand in line.

You can order the book through Barnes and Nobles here.
