    “Streetwalking With Jesus” by John Green is the third book I have read in my recent series of titles focusing on serving people living on the streets In it Green a married Roman Catholic deacon chronicles the outreach work that he leads with his organization Emmaus Ministries This is a non profit group that ministers to inner city men in Chicago that have turned to prostitution as a means of survival due to addictions abuse and or homelessnessLike all of the accounts I have read on this topic Green’s stories are raw touching and sometimes shocking For example his retelling of the “The Ragman’s Gift” is such a simple scene yet it is so powerful I found myself reading with highlighter in hand to make note of some of the author’s profound or poignant observations In fact that is one of the strengths of this book Green intends it to be treated as of a guidebook along a journey of self reflection and a call to action Each chapter ends with reflections discussions uestions and a short prayer The book concludes with concrete ways to in general help this often overlooked population but specifically how to get involved with EmmausEach book I have read thus far has viewed those living on the streets from a different perspective I invite you to check out my reviews of these books on Goodreads too if you have not done so already In Under the Overpass A Journey of Faith on the Streets of America Mike Yankoski writes about the summer that he and his friend voluntarily became homeless men living on the streets Danielle Steel writes about her years spent helping the homeless by handing out clothes food and other necessities in A Gift of Hope But John Green stands out as having completely dedicated his life to his calling He his wife Carolyn and their children live at the rehabilitated crack house that has become the ministry center for Emmaus Ministries He has definitely gone all in to “reach out in justice and mercy” as the subtitle of the book statesI think that “Street Walking With Jesus” is well worth the read and can open people’s eyes to a world so many of us are unaware of I highly recommend picking up a copy

    Short review This is a very moving books about ministry to prostitues in Chicago The overall theme of the book is Micah 68 And what does the Lord reuire of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God John Green does not think we all need to minister to male prostitues but we all do need to think about what we are called to do to act justly and walk humbly with GodMost of the book is made up of stories of the guys that John and his staff have worked with over the years The most moving stories are those that you see the redemption that comes from simple acts that give people humanity John and his family open their home to have a family style meal several times a week On guy came up to him the first time he came and said that he had never done this before John thought he was being propositioned and said what do you mean? The guy responded that he had never had a sit down around a table and eat a meal with people He was 28 and had never had a family meal Many of these guys had had horrible lives but they still are capable of being loved and redeemedMy full review is at

    Very eye opening glad to see there are people in this world that take God's word truly applies it A lot to learn from that I love that at the end of every chapter was a moment to reflect learn

    What was really great about this book was that it mentioned a lot of places in Chicago I knew I will never look at those places the same way again It really inspired me to do a few extra things for the homeless

    Excellent book and a true example of lived faith I especially admired the theme that not every outreach to the disadvantaged can be a success story but that should never keep us from reaching out to those who need us You never know what a small act of kindness can do for someone
