Synopsis

Synopsis

Live Life Loud!

You passed that same ol’ bum on the street this morning. You sat next to some smelly girl on the subway last night. You ordered a burger from a worn-out cashier over your lunch hour. What do you think about these people? What does God think about them? My 30 Days Under the Overpass is not a devotional you will read in your quiet time, then carry on with your day. It’s something you’ll actually do—all day, every day—because these thirty days will rock you. Intense reflection on God’s thoughts and feelings toward the poor, broken, and downtrodden will change you…and you will begin to change the world. Not on your next mission trip. Not at church next Sunday. But right here, right now.

Ask It.

How do you treat others—those you like, know, don’t know, don’t like? Those who fall into your comfort zone, and those who shove you outside of it?

Read It.

Mike Yankoski and his buddy, Sam, chose to become homeless to discover their answer.

Think It.

Would you go sleep under a bridge in the rain? Would you panhandle for your next meal? Would you help those who do?

Believe It.

“I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me,” said Jesus (Matthew 25:45).

Live It.

This is not your average devotional. You’ll read it, but you’ll also do it. Get ready for a life change that will change lives.



“Mike takes Christ at His word, and challenges you to summon the courage to live the real Christian faith.”

Dean R. Hirsch, President, World Vision International

Story Behind the Book

“Is God enough to sustain me? Is He trustworthy? Is He worth staking my life on? What happens if I die? Will I even survive? Such questions rang loudly in my mind as Sam and I decided to lay down everything in a full embrace of the homeless life. Some experiences were uncomfortable, some shocking, some disturbing, some hilarious, and still others frustrating. But five months of life on the streets has left us, our faith, and our lives forever changed. We’ve been back from the streets for two years, and now this devotional makes it possible for people to make real-life changes. It contains stories and reflections not included in Under the Overpass .” —Mike Yankoski
