Publishers Description Many people know about homelessness or have known a homeless person, but they have never personally experienced homelessness. This book introduces readers to actual homeless people with real identities and lives. These twelve short, personal stories are deeply moving and compelling and speak volumes about the lives of the truly poor among us. The appendix of the book offers a practical theology of homelessness, i.e., what it means to be Christian among the homeless. Thus, the book provides an outside study of homelessness alongside the multifaceted inside look from those who live with homelessness every day. Homelessness: Where There's Hope, There's Life will help readers integrate an implicit pastoral theology with a more explicit pastoral spirituality of understanding and compassion.
