Description

From the coffee bean’s discovery by ninth-century Ethiopian Muslims to being condemned as “Satan’s drink” by medieval Christians, to becoming an integral part of Passover in America, coffee has fueled prayer and shaped religious culture for generations.

In Holy Grounds, Tim Schenck explores the relationship between coffee and religion. Along the way, he examines the power of ritual, introduces readers to the patron saint of coffee, wonders about ethical considerations, and explores lessons people of faith should learn from coffeehouse culture about building healthy, authentic community.
