Confessions of a Caffeinated Christian: Wide-Awake and Not Alone

Confessions of a Caffeinated Christian: Wide-Awake and Not Alone

by John Fischer
     
 

Caffeinated faith is the strength you need to admit your life is not perfect and understand that Jesus wants you anyway. Life is messy, even for "good people," but it's sometimes tough to face that fact; it seems easier, holier, to pretend that everything is oaky. But life's problems and pain require genuine, full-strength faith: deep and powerful.

Overview

Caffeinated faith is the strength you need to admit your life is not perfect and understand that Jesus wants you anyway. Life is messy, even for "good people," but it's sometimes tough to face that fact; it seems easier, holier, to pretend that everything is oaky. But life's problems and pain require genuine, full-strength faith: deep and powerful.

John Fischer stirs readers to embrace full-strength Christianity and enjoy a deeper, more dynamic faith in Jesus. Caffeinated Christians are people who have been broken and aren't afraid to show it. Sometimes the facade of the perfect, decaf life is more appealing, but if you're looking for a faith that's real, a faith that gets your blood pumping and gives you the kick you need to wake up every day, caffeinated Christianity is the answer.

Caffeinated Christianity is invigorating, extreme, and a little edgy. It's truly loving, truly believing, and living your life without restraint-a life that's "over the top with Jesus." If this is your desire, you're not alone; wake up to full-strength faith with Him.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Fischer-prolific writer, speaker, and musician-continues his tradition of challenging the Christian subculture in this book, which reads like a personal journal and confessional. He reveals how the dictate to share his faith with others led him to view everyone around him as on their way to hell and burdened him with guilt (a guilt which still makes "ordinary, natural friendships almost impossible"). He discusses the errant idea of being a "professional Christian"-about believing he needed to cover up his sin because as a Christian leader, he felt he had to be better than other people. Fischer also delves into personality traits-specifically, his introspection and need for distance. He shares examples from his marriage, from his childhood and in one of the most touching chapters, from an older married couple who were close friends of his. At times he delves into obscure thought patterns and feelings, and his conclusions remain unclear. Coffee is a theme throughout the book, with almost every chapter tied in some way to Fischer's favorite brew, but this format is too weak to hold the book together. The title may lead some to believe that this book is fast-paced or on edge. It's actually quite the opposite, and despite its meanderings and occasional obscurity, Fischer's fans will enjoy his quiet reflections on life. (May) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
