Publisher's Summary

Night after night Mike and Sam found their beds under bridges and on the streets. They were forced to depend on the generosity and kindness of strangers as they panhandled to sustain their existence. For more than five months, the pair experienced firsthand the extreme pains of hunger, the constant uncertainty and danger of living on the streets, exhaustion, depression, and social rejection-and all of this by their own choice. This is their story. Through Mike's firsthand account, Under the Overpass provides important insight into the truths of the street and calls the younger generation of believers to take great risks of faith to bring Christ's love to the neediest corners of the world.

The author and his friend lived an experience most people never want to go through and few would willilngly enter. They entered into homelessness without backups of extra cash, credit cards or a secret place to shower or eat. They introduced homeless people as individuals in all of their strengths and weaknesses. I was amazed at the way these men stuck to their plan and did not share their "real identity" or do anything to set themselves apart in the eyes of the homeless or non homeless. They ended the book in a great epilogue that gave advice to anyone who wanted to help homeless people as individuals and as a group. I am awed by what these men did in order to really know what it means to love our neighbors and to really care about others.
