Multnomah Books My 30 Days Under the Overpass: Not Your Ordinary Devotional

Imagine living on the streets with no food except from a soup kitchen, and no shelter besides a highway overpass. Christian college students Mike and Sam did just that---and what they learned will forever change your attitude toward the homeless. In this life-changing 30-day devotional, they share stories, Scriptures, photos, and life-application challenges. Approx. 170 pages, softcover from Multnomah.

I normally don’t like ‘devotional books’, but because I so thoroughly enjoyed Under the Overpass, I bought this book, and was pleasantly surprised. With the same engaging style as in the book, Yankoski manages to make us think, and then when we’re in the frame of mind to do something about what God has put on our hearts, he asks the questions that should lead us to an idea of what we can do. By the way, what we can do for the hungry and homeless doesn’t always involve money, and sometimes the fact that you’re willing to show you care by giving of your time means as much or more than a $20.00 bill.
After each week of daily devotions, there is an opportunity to reflect in writing on some of the simple questions that we might have been asking all along.
This book isn’t quite as powerful as the book it’s based on, but it still is one of those books that makes you think, and forces you to toss away some of the pre-conceived ideas and baggage that might come to mind when you see a homeless person, or a beggar on the street.
I wasn't paid for reviewing this book.

This book really makes you stop and think. I had a very hard time putting it down. Mike takes you deep - but a good deep. He doesn't just challenge you to help he gives you great ideas on how to help.
