Publisher's Summary

If a homeless man froze to death on the steps of a church, what would it change?
Shaken Awake is the story of a church in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Faced with a dwindling and aging congregation, the church has been forced to shut down the majority of their building and has dismissed much of its staff. With limited funds, they shutter all their ministries and programs, leaving only a couple of adult Sunday school classes and a Sunday morning worship service.
When a homeless man freezes to death on the steps of their sanctuary, the church begins to re-examine their mission and priorities.

There but for the Grace of God go We . . .

A short eye-opening account of a homeless man dying on the steps of a church in downtown Atlanta . . . a not-too-unlikely prospect actually . . . having lived on the south side of the city back in the '80s. even then there was plenty of suffering to be seen . . . and now, I don't even want to be caught trying to DRIVE through that crazy metropolis . . . the message that Allen Madding brings, though is one for all Christians in America . . . one for every single one of us, who are called to minister to the least of these, our brothers and sisters, for when we clothe or feed them, we are feeding Christ himself . . . we get all caught up in whether or not we are perpetuating the problem, when that is not ours to ponder . . . it is ours to ACT, to LOVE, to GIVE . . . for Jesus, Our Lord works out the details . . . Do I fail? Yes . . . Does God give me another chance to be His hands and feet? Yes, Yes, Yes! Thank you, Allen Madding for this short story and reminder of what should be BASIC to the Christian faith and message . . .
