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.

    " It's a difficult book to read. And it's making me think. "

    " This was an interesting read. Mike and Sam, two young well off Christians set out to live on the streets as homeless men for about 6 months to learn how their faith will withstand the trials, to learn how the church treats the homeless and to evangelize. I thought I'd read about Mike and Sam preaching and trying to lead people to God, but instead they existed among the homeless and witnessed by just being there, singing and without "Bible thumping". I liked that. There were times in the story where Mike seemed preachy and judgmental (especially when churches and business owners did not give them things or care for them the way they wanted.) In any case, the story was such an interesting inside look into the culture of being homeless. Mike made some great points about the difficulties the homeless have in actually getting off the streets and staying there. I'm sure this experience will stay with Mike and Sam forever. Very interesting experiment, and I'm glad Mike chose to write about it and share their experiences. I don't think it's possible to read this story and not look more closely at the homeless and think about their situation more deeply. "

    " This book was really powerful-- every person who calls themselves Christian should read it. Really puts things in perspective! "

    " This was a great book! Mike and Sam's experiences were eye-opening and inspiring, the kind that make you want to stand up and take action! I highly recommend this book to anyone. It's very unique, and I enjoyed it! "
