More About Coffee with Jesus by David Wilkie
Thousands of people start each day with a shot of Coffee with Jesus, the enormously popular online comic strip. Irreverent at times, yet always insightful, this volume features classic entries and all new, exclusive material that was born out of artist David Wilkie's frustration with the polarized political climate in America. Poignant, pointed, and rife with good theology, Coffee with Jesus is organized around six themes: getting to know Jesus, spiritual disciplines, relationships, culture, church, and the challenges of life. With exclusive material like twelve-panel mega-strips and "behind the strip" reflections on life, faith and art, Wilkie inventively poses answers to the perpetual Christian speculation, "What would Jesus do?"

Jesus freaks and coffee freaks can unite over this book-length version of the Internet comic strip. A suit-and-necktie-wearing Jesus whose visage never changes listens to, counsels, rebukes, and tweaks any of five recurring characters who articulate common Christian attitudes and questions (“Christians aren’t perfect, just forgiven. Right, J-Man?”)in a four-panel strip. Satan, resembling William Powell in the 1930s Thin Man movies, also shows up for an occasional round of sparring. (“It’s such delicious fun, messing with your silly, sleepy sheep,” he tells Jesus.) The stylized art, drawn from Sunday school and advertising clip art, makes for distinctive iconography. The book is very loosely organized around six themes, from “Getting to Know Jesus” to “Suffering, Temptation and Comfort,” and cartoonist Wilkie adds some exposition. But the heart is the comic collection and its humor, at once gentle and barbed and more thought-provoking than many a sermon. Buy this for a Christmas gift, to be read over a cup of strong joe.(Dec.)
