Makes you think about some things and hopefully changes a bit of your perception.

I now drive around town with bottles of water and granola bars in my car and you would be surprised the number of people I see who need them, even out in the "burbs".

Great reminder about how we should treat others, not just those like us and not just the homeless. We are called to community. We are called to love one another and you can't do that ignoring our nations social issues.

MUST READ!

I must say I expected alot more from this book. Although the idea was fabulous I was left wanting alot more detail and stories about his life on the streets and I felt like this book was rushed and could have been alot longer. It did make me look at homeless people differently though.

Reading the story of Yankoski's journey into homelessness and the reaction he got from the church was sobering and thought-provoking. Definitely a good book to read in a group setting.

I didn't realize when this was recommended to read, it was written for a much younger crowd. It was pretty good, but as an adult devotional, I wouldn't recommend it.

If you are going to reference The Beatles in your book, you should really learn how to spell the band's name correctly. geesh. Not "The Beetles"!!!!!

Read this while on an urban mission. Really helped change how I look at people, where I get my security from, and God.
