Review of Bo's Cafe

When I saw that my friend John Lynch had written a book, soon to be released, I had to ask. "Can I review the book?"
Much to my delight, I found that he was delighted to oblige.
Soon after that brief email, my copy arrived in the mail.

I loved it from the moment I started reading. I could see my story written in the pages...

This is by far one of the best books I've ever read. Though written in novel form, it is filled with the truths of God's desire for shared relationship and healing.

It's a story of a man, named Steven, who is broken and doesn't know it. His marriage reveals it, but he's too blind to see. That is until Andy enters into his world.

This amazing book gives a beautiful picture of what we were made for. Created in the midst of of the Trinity, joined in relationship, their shadow falls on us. We were made to walk through the roads of life with others. Bear one another's burdens isn't just about taking a meal to a sick friend. It's about getting in the trenches of hearts, loving others where they are to where they were made to be. In the beauty of shared relationship we find healing. This book portrays the value of letting others know your story, past and present.

Everyone needs a "Bo's Cafe" in their lives.

Beautiful job, Bruce, Bill & John. It is a stunning portrayal of a shared journey. It is a brilliant depiction of how love heals. To be honest, I'm sad that I finished reading. Thank you for the honor of reading "Bo's Cafe". It has spoken my heart's desire. I pray that I can be an "Andy" or "Cynthia" to those Papa God brings across my path. Well done!

This book is now added to my "must reads" list. Get a copy. You won't be disappointed.

Oh, I am so excited! I need a new good book to read. And, I have to say the fact that you are recommending it, leads me to believe that it will be full of the true Gospel, of grace and love, not mixed with chucks of religious law that ties us to bondage.

I just want you to know that I LOVE reading your posts. They are always filled with the truth that has set me free from the law and religion! Thank you :)

I agree with Daveda! But, of course I would, she is my friend. I think that your review means alot because you would not recommend something that mixes relationship and religion together. Thanks for this. I am excited about it now too!

Hello, my friend! This sounds like a great read, I'll have to add it to the list.

I know you're busy with the new school year and all, but we must catch up some time. I feel like I'm losing touch with you because I'm not in blogland much these days and that is something I don't want to do!

I love you, JewlZ!

I'm going to check the library for this book. Or pray I find it at a bargain price. :) Thanks for sharing. I loved TrueFaced by John Lynch. You know I heard him at a local church recently. Powerful communicator.

Hugs!
