Miracle at the Higher Grounds Café by Max Lucado with Candace Lee and Eric Newman



I haven’t read a Christian fiction book for quite a while now— as you can probably tell from my review archives. But something about Miracle at the Higher Grounds Café just seemed to say “read me.” I’m glad I did.

Miracle at the Higher Grounds Café is a short read—just a couple of hours—but that’s more than enough time to read and absorb the story. I’ll admit, I’m not used to Max Lucado writing fiction books. All of his previous works that I’ve read have been non-fiction books, usually meant to help strengthen churches or church members. But I think a good fiction book can do that as well as a non-fiction book can, and in the case of Miracle at the Higher Grounds Café this is very true.

You see the miracle and wonder of God’s love working in multiple places—something you don’t often see in Christian fiction. Most Christian fiction books I’ve read have a ton of believers and just one non-believer who needs to come to God. But in Miracle at the Higher Grounds Café, there are multiple people who need to bring themselves before God and it makes this a much better book for it.

I loved the book. It was well written and so easy to fall into the story. I was actually sorry to see it end and in all honesty would love to see a sequel—maybe detailing the lives of the kids. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a light, easy read.
