A college student's memoir of his time and thoughts about Christianity as it relates to the needs of the homeless...he and a friend traveled to various cities by experiencing homelessness themselves.  AWESOME read!

One of many favorite quotes from the book,  p. 46

"If we are the body of Christ - and Christ came NOT for the healthy but the sick - we need to be fully present in the places where people are most broken.   And it has to be more than just a financial presence.  That helps, of course.  But too often money is insulation - conveniently keeps us from having to come face to face with a man or woman whose life is in tatters."
