Bo’s Cafe (audio book)
High-power tech executive, Steven Kerner, is living the American dream in Southern California. But he isn’t enjoying it. After another fight with his wife, he finds himself at a seedy bar far from home where an eccentric mystery man named Andy reveals a surprising understanding of Steven’s life.
Reluctantly, Steven begins driving around with Andy in his 1970 Chevy Electra convertible. Through a series of frustrating and painful encounters, a genuine friendship develops between the two men. With the grace of a loving community, and the patience of a God who has been tenderly drawing him to it, Steven finally accepts the very thing he’s needed all along.
Bo’s Café is a journey for all who struggle with unresolved anger, trust issues, and a longing to step off the performance treadmill of life. The profound but simple steps Steven takes open him up to a more authentic way of living. Embracing honesty and confronting his fears helps to awaken his buried emotions. As he forsakes his self-absorbed focus, choosing to exchange safety for messy vulnerability, Stephen discovers a pathway to growing trust. This fictionalized version of a true story of healing shows the power that a loving community has to reveal God’s unbridled grace. God’s love is all around us, if we would just have the courage to let it in.
