In Max Lucado's new fiction release, Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe, he asks, If you could ask God anything, what would you ask—and how would he answer?
I recently read my first Max Lucado book! I have to tell you I've been missing out! This tale centers around the recently seperated Chelsea, who is trying to rebuild her life. She ends up running her mother's coffee shop and is really struggling. Enter in her guardian angel Manny and things start shaking up.
I loved the way Lucado wrote about spiritual warfare within the context of a contempory fiction/romance novel. It was so unexpected and wonderfully done. I had just myself finished reading in Daniel about this very thing - when the Angel wasn't able to come to Daniel for 21 days until Michael came to help. I think often times we forget that angels are fighting a spiritual battle that goes unseen by human eyes. This was a reminder of that.
I also loved how Lucado had the character's heart change through the course of the book. They came to know God and that changed their whole lives for the better. I really enjoyed this one and will read more from him.
You can purchase your copy of Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe at your local book retailer or online at places like Amazon.
About the book:
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.
