Item Description...
After meals from garbage cans and dumpsters, 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.

Publishers Description

"5th Anniversary - Updated & Expanded Edition
With foreword by Francis Chan"
Ever Wonder What it Would Be Like to Live Homeless?
Mike Yankoski did more than just wonder. By his own choice, Mike's life went from upper-middle class plush to scum-of-the-earth repulsive overnight. With only a backpack, a sleeping bag and a guitar, Mike and his traveling companion, Sam, set out to experience life on the streets in six different cities--from Washington D.C. to San Diego-- and they put themselves to the test.
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. They wanted to find out if their faith was real, if they could actually be the Christians they said they were apart from the comforts they'd always discover first hand what it means to be homeless in America.
Mike and Sam's story is gritty, challenging, and utterly captivating. What you encounter in these pages will radically alter how you see your world--and may even change your life.

Great Book  Dec 4, 2008
I had a hard time putting this book down. I looked forward to every time I got to read another chapter. Fast Read!
Under the Overpass  Oct 15, 2008
The book is very interesting and insightful. My singles group at church is doing a book review on it. A must read.
A little obvious, but still not bad  Jul 17, 2008
The book is a quick read, almost too short. At times I would have wanted a deeper look into this journey, feeling as if the author remained on the surface at times. The lay out is simple and straightforward and the narrative is uncomplicated. I wonder if the rough language wasn't the only thing scrubbed out of this obviously Christian-targeted book. That being said, I enjoyed the book and am thankful that Mike Yonkoski shared his experience in print.

The book is worth the read and a good place to start when wanted to put action to belief. It would make a great study topic for a church youth program.

I'm curious if this book was the catalyst that started the trend of young Christian man venturing into the world of the homeless for extended periods or if the Spirit is doing the same work in others like It did in the author and Sam, his fellow Christian homeless sojourner?
Real Life  Jul 16, 2008
This book chronicles the "real life" journey of Mike Yankoski and his friend Sam through the streets of America. Putting his faith to the test he decided to live as the homeless in a number of cities across the country.

This book is enlightening as well as inspiring. It makes you think twice about passing someone up that you might be able to help. It also gives you a glimpse into the life of someone who is less fortunate. How does someone feel when they, for whatever reason, are left living on the streets. How much does it mean to them when somebody just shows that they care?

It was very interesting to read about the interactions these two had with regular people, including church folk. How they were treated, etc.

I completely enjoyed the adventure that Mike and Sam took me on, and would highly recommend it.
Thought Provoking and Action Inspiring   Jul 12, 2008
During a sermon, Mike feels the call from God to live on the streets of America. After much prayer and research, he and his friend Sam spend 5 months in several cities.

This book is interesting on several levels. It describes what it is like to be homeless. It talks about the Christian church's reaction to the homeless. It talks about what the individual Christian can do (and not do) to make a difference in the lives of homeless.
