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

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

High-powered executive Steven Kerner is living the dream in southern California. But when his bottled pain ignites in anger one night, his wife kicks him out. Then an eccentric mystery man named Andy Monroe befriends Steven and begins unravelling his tightly wound world. Andy leads Steven through a series of frustrating and revealing encounters to repair his life through genuine friendship and the grace and love of a God who has been waiting for him to accept it. A story to challenge and encourage, BO'S CAFE is a model for all who struggle with unresolved problems and a performance-based life. Those who desire a fuller, more authentic way of living will find this journey of healing a restorative exploration of God's unbridled grace.My Review:Do you know Lindsey and Steven? Unfortunately, many of us do. Too well. We just don't want to admit it though! The authors of this book have chosen to highlight the topic of rocky messages with wit, humor, and a very serious overtone all at the same time. Steven runs into Andy one night while at the local bar. By the end of the night, Steven is wishing Andy would just disappear! They both need each other to work through issues in their lives. But will it cost Steven his marriage or save it? Lindsey is tired of all of Steven's antics...coming home late, ignoring their daughter Jennifer, and always being angry. What lessons does she learn from Steven, Andy, and most importantly, God? Bo's Cafe is the focal point for the changes that need to occur. There's a lot more than shrimp on the menu there!
