Coffee With Jesus
“Coffee with Jesus” by David Wilke (and the Radio Free Babylon team) is an online comic I first stumbled upon in TPB (trade paperback) form about 5 years ago at the Today’s Teens Conference and bought it on a whim. It wasn’t until a couple of years later that I actually started to read it, and what I got blew me away. As soon as I saw there was another collection called “A Second Shot of Coffee with Jesus”, it was immediately purchased. And then years later I found even more on the website Radio Free Babylon. I constantly find myself recommending and rereading these books and online strips.
Why? For starters, they’re often very funny. But more than that, I learn something – and the humor can be the way the Lord get’s me to the lesson. The humor is very disarming, relaxing, and at times irreverent – but within most panels are lessons that are thought-provoking, insightful, challenging, and even convicting (the same can be said about Jon Acuff’s Stuff Christians Like and to an extent Matthew Pierce’s blog). I like time with the Lord, it’s something I (and all of us) need, and I find these books (especially lately with all the anxiety stuff going on) a great tool to facilitate it – because I know there will be conviction coming, as well as a great laugh.
So with all that in mind, I hope you check them out, hope you get a great laugh, and more importantly pray that our amazing God speaks to you through them as He has me.
God bless my friends.
