Product Description

Imagine living on the streets with no food except from a soup kitchen, and no shelter besides a highway overpass. Christian college students Mike and Sam did just that---and what they learned will forever change your attitude toward the homeless. In this life-changing 30-day devotional, they share stories, Scriptures, photos, and life-application challenges. Approx. 170 pages, softcover from Multnomah.

Publisher's Description

Live Life Loud!

You passed that same ol’ bum on the street this morning. You sat next to some smelly girl on the subway last night. You ordered a burger from a worn-out cashier over your lunch hour. What do you think about these people? What does God think about them? My 30 Days Under the Overpass is not a devotional you will read in your quiet time, then carry on with your day. It’s something you’ll actually do—all day, every day—because these thirty days will rock you. Intense reflection on God’s thoughts and feelings toward the poor, broken, and downtrodden will change you…and you will begin to change the world. Not on your next mission trip. Not at church next Sunday. But right here, right now.

Ask It.

How do you treat others—those you like, know, don’t know, don’t like? Those who fall into your comfort zone, and those who shove you outside of it?

Read It.

Mike Yankoski and his buddy, Sam, chose to become homeless to discover their answer.

Think It.

Would you go sleep under a bridge in the rain? Would you panhandle for your next meal? Would you help those who do?

Believe It.

"I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me," said Jesus (Matthew 25:45).

Live It.

This is not your average devotional. You’ll read it, but you’ll also do it. Get ready for a life change that will change lives.



"Mike takes Christ at His word, and challenges you to summon the courage to live the real Christian faith."

Dean R. Hirsch, President, World Vision International

Story Behind the Book

"Is God enough to sustain me? Is He trustworthy? Is He worth staking my life on? What happens if I die? Will I even survive? Such questions rang loudly in my mind as Sam and I decided to lay down everything in a full embrace of the homeless life. Some experiences were uncomfortable, some shocking, some disturbing, some hilarious, and still others frustrating. But five months of life on the streets has left us, our faith, and our lives forever changed. We’ve been back from the streets for two years, and now this devotional makes it possible for people to make real-life changes. It contains stories and reflections not included in Under the Overpass ." —Mike Yankoski

    I normally don't like ‘devotional books', but because I so thoroughly enjoyed Under the Overpass, I bought this book, and was pleasantly surprised. With the same engaging style as in the book, Yankoski manages to make us think, and then when we're in the frame of mind to do something about what God has put on our hearts, he asks the questions that should lead us to an idea of what we can do. By the way, what we can do for the hungry and homeless doesn't always involve money, and sometimes the fact that you're willing to show you care by giving of your time means as much or more than a $20.00 bill.

    After each week of daily devotions, there is an opportunity to reflect in writing on some of the simple questions that we might have been asking all along.

    This book isn't quite as powerful as the book it's based on, but it still is one of those books that makes you think, and forces you to toss away some of the pre-conceived ideas and baggage that might come to mind when you see a homeless person, or a beggar on the street.

    I wasn't paid for reviewing this book.

    This book really makes you stop and think. I had a very hard time putting it down. Mike takes you deep - but a good deep. He doesn't just challenge you to help he gives you great ideas on how to help.
