Offsite Review: Coffee With Jesus

Coffee with Jesus

If you are looking for a last minute Christmas gift, you might look at the Coffee With Jesus by David Wilkie.  I have been a regular reader of the comic strip on Facebook and Twitter.

The Grad Student Blog at Wheaton had a review of it the other day and I think it would appeal to a wide variety of readers.

David Wilkie’s book, Coffee with Jesus, is a collection of his comics by the same title originally posted at Radio Free Babylon. Many of his comics get shared regularly on Facebook and other forms of social media. My first introduction to Coffee with Jesus was through Facebook and when I saw that IVP was publishing the whole collection, I was very eager to get my hands on a copy.

The strips are sorted according to theme, not date. There are six chapters about (1) getting to know Jesus, (2) spiritual disciplines, (3) relationships, (4) culture, (5) church, and (6) suffering, temptation and comfort, and an appendix with strips for “special occasions” (e.g., Christmas, Valentine’s Day). Each chapter begins with a short reflection on the theme of the chapter, a lyric written by Wilkie, and a page describing one of the main characters with whom Jesus interacts: Lisa, Ann, Carl, Kevin, Joe (a pastor), and Satan. There are three strips to a page and about 75 pages of strips—you do the math.
