Drawing on the Italian heritage they share, Kathy and Ellie share their Brooklyn roots and passion for Jesus. Leave chicken soup to the souls who need comfort, the authors say, because they're talking about the Christian life that Jesus promised in John 10:10: life like spaghetti - messy, satisying, full of meat, joyful fun ("honestly," the authors say, "can you slurp a noodle without a pucker or a smile?"), and brimming with nourishment and energy. Leaping, loud, abundant life.
Using humor, personal experiences from their spiritual and family heritage, and Bible teaching, the authors seek to nudge (or, they would say: push and shove) listeners into living more abundantly by...

I was so excited to see this book - couldn't wait to load it into my MP3 player. I went to a retreat about 10 years ago where Ellie Lofaro was the speaker. She is a gifted speaker. She is also VERY funny! We laughed so hard all weekend that our facial muscles hurt! I was hoping this book would be just what I need right now, but alas, it was not. I've been a Christian for over 30 years, and the points made in this book were nothing new to me. It's just a Bible study. Sorry, Ellie & Kathy.
