Rate this:
Coffee-shop owner John Parrish squabbles with two employee friends over such heady topics as God's leading, hearing God's voice and living out one's faith. Once Parrish accepts God's cookie-embedded challenge to "take the corner," there's no turning back. Despite fear of humiliation and failure, Parrish treks to the nearest street corner and awaits further instructions from on high. What happens in the following days is entertaining, thought-provoking and completely plausible.

I didn't realize there was a genre of fiction called "faith fiction," though it shouldn't surprise me. Hopefully this doesn't represent the best of the genre. A mildly interesting plot and somewhat amusing characters make this an experience somewhat like watching an average TV sitcom.

It started well. I had great hopes and I started to care about the characters.
And then, about 2/3 of the way through, it got preachy. It all became unrelatable and contrived and the story felt forced and plastic.
Was god speaking through the fortune cookie? I'll never know because I finally just didn't care and questioned why I was torturing myself. I baled on the last 1/4 of the book.
