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.
