Coffee With Jesus (A Review)

I am grateful to IVP for sending me a complementary review copy of David Wilkie’s Coffee with Jesus. I hope that most people are already familiar with the comic series on the Radio Free Babylon website, which has been widely shared (and sometimes imitated) online.

The cartoon uses the same figures in the same poses over and over again, yet with differing text that has often managed to provide a succinct and powerfully challenging message.

"As and atheist, I'm one of those failing to "acknowledge the divine". But isn't it ..."

    I do enjoy these – but in proportion to the rest of his body, Jesus’ neck is too long and his head is too small. It’s time for Wilkie to redraw him.
