REVIEW: Bo's Cafe by Bill Thrall, Bruce McNicol, John Lynch

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Bill Thrall, Bruce McNicol, John Lynch and their publisher for sending me a copy of "Bo's Cafe" to review for them. I have always been grateful for this generosity, and I am trying to improve at being consistent in taking the time to thank these wonderfully giving individuals in a public forum. I really appreciate your time, effort and expense in making a reviewer copy available to me.

WOW! That’s my first thought about “Bo’s Cafe” by John Lynch, Bill Thrall and Bruce McNicol. This is a story of hope and redemption from the brink of loss and despair. Where would you go if you were about to lose it all? Life feels like it is about to come crashing completely down to Steven Kerner. So, he stops for a drink that he doesn’t drink and meets a complete stranger who tells him more about himself than he ever wanted to know.

This encounter reminds me of the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4. This book is like a breath of fresh air. It will make you laugh, make you think, make you cry, and make you wonder why you’ve taken so long to have an intimate relationship with Jesus.
