    Description

    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.

    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.

    Great Perspective

    The book is written from the perspective of Mike Yankoski as he spends time in different cities with the homeless communities there. He gives the reader a unique perspective that can only come from experience.

    I would suggest this book to anyone wanting to learn more about the homeless community and how to serve them better.

    If only more would just see one another.

    I run a program in my sons high school, we do fun events along with service projects. We read this book all together and would discuss it at the end of each chapter. I would highly recommend it. It’s eye opening to actually hear how we can help by someone who took the Leap of faith to experience what so many others are going though.
    After my group of high school students read this they have become much more involved in our local homeless programs. Thanks for writing this and sharing your experiences on the street.
