Overview

Thousands of people start each day with a shot of Coffee with Jesus, the enormously popular online comic strip. Irreverent at times, yet always insightful, this volume features classic entries and all new, exclusive material that was born out of artist David Wilkie's frustration with the polarized political climate in America.

Poignant, pointed, and rife with good theology, Coffee with Jesus is organized around six themes: getting to know Jesus, spiritual disciplines, relationships, culture, church, and the challenges of life. With exclusive material like twelve-panel mega-strips and "behind the strip" reflections on life, faith and art, Wilkie inventively poses answers to the perpetual Christian speculation, "What would Jesus do?"

I've been reading Coffee With Jesus strips on Facebook for at least the past year. They are clever and funny, and also will challenge your thinking. Jesus "has coffee" with a group of people who are struggling in their lives and in their faith (or lack of faith). A pastor and even ol' Satan  himself drops in for a cup. One common criticism of the strip is that Jesus's tone is sometimes snarky, sarcastic or downright condescending. But it that way, the strip also challenges your preconceived notions of Jesus. Whatever the strip is, it's always on target. The book includes strips that have not appeared online.
