Publisher's Summary

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.

    "So Great"

    I loved everything about this. The guys reading it, lived it. They are fantastic and I am in awe of their ability to have lived on the streets and report what they lived to the Christian community so that we might look at ourselves and our reactions to homeless people and how we build our fellow humans up no matter the circumstances they may be facing.

    As for the guy that remarked about the book being about a couple of "Jesus Freaks"... Do you own a three legged dog?

    "GREAT"

    Wonderful, thought provoking, and eye opening.
    Definitely recommend reading this whilst walking around your town and examining the darkness around you that you never notice while driving by during your busy life

    Story
    "Urban camping pretending to be an faith journey"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone devoid of judgement, sense, and filled with liberal ideals. Someone utterly or actually high on the Holy Spirit.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mike Yankoski again?

    I wouldn't read any of his future books ever if it was titled, "What Was I Thinking?!" Maybe if the book was called, "An Undiscovered Brain Tumor Turned Me Into a Religious Nut"


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Under the Overpass?

    The entire book is about a trip that is pointless and without any redeeming value. This is the worst book I have ever read.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has expanded my understanding of just how foolish two men can be in the name of God.
