I have read thousands of books in my life, including hundreds of spiritual books, and this is right up there with the best. I thought it was going to be a compilation of interesting stories, but it is much more than that. It is a book that operates on many levels. It is story, it is poetry, it is contemplation, and it contains the deepest and yet most practical of wisdom. It is a book that changes perspectives and in this process you will both laugh and cry.

The primary teaching of the spiritual path I've been on for the last 25 years is that God dwells within us, as us. This is not news to Father Greg Boyle. Not only does he see the divine in all, he somehow manages to serve within the heartbreaking reality of people he loves killing other people he loves. And in the midst of this, his heart is still able to expand instead of contracting. He is the rarest of human beings and I am in awe of his gift and the sheer heart and beauty of this book. It is certainly a book to gift to others. No one who reads it, can look at the people pulled into this lifestyle in quite the same way again.

Format: Paperback
Excellent book (I have since bought 5 more as gifts) with a very good discussion of the divine. My uncle, a former Catholic priest who has a PhD in Education told me after reading the book "I don't think there is a book I know of that describes more eloquently for me the God I try and believe in and especially where to find him."

Greg Boyle's book will make you laugh and it will make you cry. I am not catholic and have never met a gang member in my life. I was not interested in reading this book. But it changed my life. This is a book that opens your heart reminds you of what it means to be truly human.

This peek into the lifework of Gregory Boyle provides honest and honorable insight, and a challenge to sift through personal or faith-based belief systems through story after story about changed lives - theirs, yours and mine as we shift our lenses from judgment. But it's also so much more than that - you'll find G's words resonating in the depth of your own being and circumstances, no matter what they are.

Format: Paperback
I found the book both poignant and helpful to glimpse the life of someone so dedicated to serving the youth gangs of L.A. The author's sense of humor in such tragic circumstances, his commitment to expressing God's love in all his dealings, is both heart searching and heart warming. And through it all he is 'no push-over".
