Under the Overpass...INCREDIBLE BOOK!

This book was the story of two college guys who decided to completely step outside their comfortable lives and chose to live homeless on the streets of 5 major U.S. cities. Their story was incredible and inspiring. Homelessness is such a difficult issue to relate to or understand. It is so easy to ignore someone on the street and blame them for their situation without ever taking the time to hear their story or care about their circumstances. Reading this book made me seriously contemplate how I relate to those who are homeless and what I should be doing to reflect the love of Jesus to everyone I meet. Reading the stories of so many homeless people and the problems they face really made me realize that they are a population that is often so ignored and we often see them as being 'beneath' the rest of society. I loved this first-hand account of what it is like to be homeless and if you are looking for a book to really challenge you to live all that you say you believe (or even if you aren't looking), this book is an incredible read.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review, but all opinions within the review are my own
