Last week I read this book. I mentioned it in a few blog posts and tweets, but I wanted to officially endorse and recommend this book to anyone with a heart for living among the poor. This book really defines the major differences between living AMONG the poor and being "ministry tourists" who pop into communities and out again at the end of the day....back to living quarters nice enough for you...because you are better than them. Frankly, it calls some of our approaches into question. It is very insightful and written from the perspective of someone who has lived incarnationally and has the stories to prove it. Great book!
