Be ready to change your life
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.

living out Jesus with the homeless
A beautiful book describing two young, Christian men that want to explore the homeless condition in America up close and personally. These guys not only take their faith seriously but live it out. Every pastor should read this especially those that oppose social justice. These guys live out Jesus.
Along their journey you'll have their answer to the question should I give money to panhandlers? You'll also hear their critique for churches that don't respond to Jesus' question 'where were you when I was hungry?'
My favorite quote: "Love can't cover wrongs if we let frustration keep us apart." This was Mike's response when they decided to revisit a church that kicked them out but responded with grace the second time around.
