Miracle at the Higher Ground Cafe: A Blog Tour and Book Review

About The Book:

What if you could ask God anything? What would you ask? And how would he answer?

Chelsea Chambers is on her own. After a public split from her NFL superstar husband, Chelsea takes a bold step out of the limelight and behind the counter of the Higher Grounds Café, an old-fashioned coffee shop in dire need of reinvention. But when her courage, expert planning, and out-of-this-world cupcakes fail to pay the bills, this newly single mom finds herself desperate for help. Better yet, a miracle.

Then a curious stranger lands at Chelsea’s door, and with him, an even more curious string of events. Soon, customers are flocking to the Higher Grounds Café, and not just for the cupcakes and cappuccino. They’ve come for the internet connection to the divine. Now the café has become the go-to place for people in search of answers to life’s biggest questions.

When a catastrophe strikes and her ex comes calling, Chelsea begins to wonder if the whole universe is conspiring against her quest to make it on her own. After a shocking discovery opens her eyes to the unseen world around her, Chelsea finds the courage to ask, and heaven answers in a most unexpected way.

About The Author:

More than 120 million readers have found comfort in the writings of Max Lucado. He ministers at the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, where he lives with his wife, Denalyn, and a sweet but misbehaving mutt, Andy.

My Review: 

Max Lucado is a prolific author and while I have read most of his non-fiction books, I am fairly new to the fiction (aside from the children's books). Understandably, when I found out I could have an opportunity to review his new fiction title, Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe, I jumped at it. I am so glad that I did.

Written with humor and a delightful cast of characters, Miracle at the HIgher Ground Cafe is built solidly around themes like forgiveness and the power of prayer in our lives.It was also a wonderful reminder that as hard as we often try we cannot do things alone, but need God each step of the way.  It is classic Lucado in that the spiritual themes are so simple yet profound, and yet I also enjoyed reading Max Lucado's fictional take on these oft times difficult themes. I found the book flowed nicely, was a very quick read and is perfect for a new believer or even those who may be questioning the Christian faith.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
