Coffee, Tea, and Holy Water takes the reader on an armchairtour of Christianity in our world, across borders and over continents.Author Amanda Hudson provides a personal touch with culturalcuriosities, profound questions about the nature and practice of faith,as she travels to five countries: Brazil, Wales, Tanzania, China, andHonduras.

Part reflection, part entertaining travelogue, Coffee Tea, and Holy Waterexplores everything from each culture's offer of hospitality to life ina Masaai boma."There are lessons to be learned from other countries that are notvisible in our own culture," writes Hudson, "Questions that are not ourquestions. Struggles that are not our normal struggles. And yet, when welook around the throne one day at the nations assembled there, insteadof marveling at the diversity, I think we will actually be fascinated bywhat we all had in common."This is a book about the places we meet, what we share, how we can learnto cross borders (geographical, cultural, personal), and learning thatthe steps to do so make all the difference.

Honest, witty, and thought-provoking, these stories come from a youngwoman raised in the South, who found herself wondering what "normal"Christianity looked like in other countries.
