Too many of us line up for God out of duty or guilt. We completely miss the warmth and richness of the experience of living with God. If we'd learn to see what God is doing on earth, we could participate fully in the irresistible life that he offers.
You can learn to pay attention like never before, to identify where God is already in business right in your neighborhood. The doors are open and the coffee is brewing. God is serving the refreshing antidote to the unsatisfying, arms-length spiritual life---and he won't even make you stand in line. Let Leonard Sweet show you how the passion that Starbucks has for creating an irresistible experience can connect you with God's stirring introduction to the experience of faith.

Insightful and challenging. I love christian writers who think outside the box and who cause me to rethink my ministry. Leonard Sweet always does that for me.
Peggy MuthAge: Over 654 Stars Out Of 5July 23, 2010Peggy MuthAge: Over 65This had a very unique look at how the church is lacking in making the Christian life a relationship with others as well as Christ. To a Starbuc ks lover it will mean even more.
Darius Ward1 Stars Out Of 5March 23, 2010Darius WardIf you want a book that is biblically sound, this is not it. The author is definitely a liberal as far as Christianity is concerned. For a person looking for biblical spiritual growth. you will not find here. And the comparisons to Chinese toy dogs (shi tzu) for a play on words is ungodly (we know what you mean). If you are down with the Emergent Church, this may be for you. However, since I'm not, I can't recommend this book for you.
Dan Griffiths3 Stars Out Of 5November 26, 2007Dan GriffithsI enjoyed reading this book. I admit that I was a little defensive when I read it. Sweet is not a conservative. I am not a fan of coffee and have never been in a Starbucks myself. Sweet states that we should have passion for our churches like the customers of Starbucks have for Starbucks. I agree with that.<br /><br />Sweet uses the word EPIC to describe this passion. The acroymn stands for:<br />Experience<br />Participatory<br />Image-rich<br />Connecting<br /><br />Sweet makes the point that as leaders of the church we are not appealing to our culture to the degree that Starbucks is impacting their culture.Sweet does not exactly say what the church should be doing, he only points out what the church is not doing.
