24 of 26 people found the following review helpful By Donald Braugh, Jr. on February 24, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This book should be on every Christian theologians' bookshelf. If you can't stop to read something this good- you have little business meddling in the affairs of God who is rich in flavor and is the life - full of energy and zest. Mr. Sweet uses words like honey to describe the world as he sees it and as we can see it through a spiritually awakened frame of mind and soul. I came away feeling refreshed like never in my life- by a book that is.. Those who want to fulfill their hearts' longings and those who want to bettter understand the God of this universe- get your copy and share it with others! Even those who just need to regroup and get a new perspective on their lives will benefit by reading.

I found this book to be filled with ideas to really think on. It covers many aspects of theology, but in a readible, understandable way. I used this as a devotional reading and a way to push the limits of my "boxes". I would recommend this book, I have given this book to 5 other people, and their responce has been similar.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dave Bruehl on October 30, 2002
Format: Hardcover
I read this book over the span of about a year. I found it more for entertainment and personal interest while seeking God rather than very serious spiritual reading. Every time I would read a chapter, I would come from it feeling refreshed and closer to God, much like a cup of coffee for the soul. Sweet goes off on a lot of tangents, which may be aggravating to some, but if you just let go, Sweet does a great job of subtly making a point. It's nice to see things from a different perspective sometimes. One final note- his chapter on smell brought me to tears and stuck with me for weeks. That chapter alone made the book worthwhile.

Format: Hardcover
I read this book on the recommendation of a friend. It was some of the best money I have ever spent. This book is destined to be a classic devotional/spiritual classic in the tradition of the great writers of the church.

Format: Hardcover
"Soul Cafe" by Leonard Sweet challenges the reader to spiritual wholeness by covering a variety of topics. The book is around 180 pages and among the points covered include:

1. Jesus rejected the world's view of success of large numbers. Instead, He measured success in hearts changed, one by one.
2. How hurry, worry, and slurry affects the quality of our relationships.
3. Sometimes we get upset over the wrong things. Living with integrity and honesty as a Christian will result in suffering.
4. 3 practices that will help keep the Spirit strong in your life.
5. God's presence in our lives is not just in the secluded places.
6. The closer we become to God, the more other people will see God in us.
7. Since much of life is beyond our control, trust God's plan and pray your life into a yielded life instead of spending time looking for an escape hatch.
8. Sometimes we have to slow down so we can hear God speak to us.

"Soul Cafe" will challenge you to pause, think, and reflect on what the most important thing is - a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Recommended.
