FROM THE BACK COVER:
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.
I didn't get a review copy, so I haven't actually read the book myself...yet. The first chapter really got my attention, though, and it's now on my wish list. The publisher has set up a very interesting way to enter the excerpt as wwell. You'll see. Oh, and if you have the time, check out the website. Really cool.
