Serving Incarnationally

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I joined “Blogging for Books.” When I joined, I requested the book Under the Overpass by Mike Yankoski. I did not know much about the book, but the premise looked interesting.

Mike and his friend Sam spent five months living among the homeless of different cities as homeless people. (Obviously, there were differences, as Mike indicates in his book.)

When I finish reading the book – which should not take much time – I will post a review here.

But, for now, I was wondering what my readers thought about the premise. What do you think about two people choosing to be homeless in order to learn more about homelessness? Pros? Cons?
