Greg Paul writes prose that is poetic! The stories of the people has met are a powerful witness to depths of despair that the human soul can sink, while at the same time a celebration of our capacity to love and feel joy.

HASH(0xa7ab70d8) out of 5 stars Dark Stories From The Street March 15 2015
By R. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A real labor to pick thru for the good parts. Mostly dark and anything but uplifting. Weak on theology which seemed compromised for the sake of liberal causes and points of view. Some of the stories were compelling and will stay with you forever. Some of the illustrations were extraordinary - the "holy hand grenade" comes to mind - which I've already made use of in conversation with close friends. The stories are of street thugs, drug dealers, prostitutes, the downtrodden, and the usual litany of abuses that comprise their pitiful lives. The accounts are well written, but these are dark stories lacking spiritual food. The Holy Spirit seemed curiously absent - maybe I missed that part. But this account is of a type of a church where you would not be surprised to see drug dealing occurring at the back door (or the front door). There is no reverence here. But it is likely the kind of place where you would find Christ should he return today. These are his people. I found the best way to consume this book was using speech-to-text, playing in the background while doing chores around the house, and then focusing in when a compelling part surfaced. It remained in my "Abort" collection for months until I tried speech-to-text, which really unlocked the book for me.

HASH(0xa7aced14) out of 5 stars Blessed Are the Poor... Oct. 6 2008
By Curtis L. Honeycutt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
(review from[...])

If you haven't heard about Greg Paul yet, maybe now's the time to go to Amazon and buy his books.

Paul's first book, God in the Alley: Being and Seeing Jesus in a Broken World, was published a few years ago and completely wrecked me...in a good way. In it, he shares some heart-wrenching stories about his community in inner city Toronto. Paul is an author/pastor/local rock star who started a ministry called Sanctuary that reaches out to homeless (they prefer "under-housed") and fully housed people under the same roof. He started the community center/church hybrid out of a rock band called Red Rain.

I am fortunate enough to have visited Sanctuary first hand back in February with my fellow justice-seeker, Barry, and some other friends from our church. We got to spend some time walking the cold winter streets of Toronto and seeing how God can work miraculously in seemingly hopeless situations. The stories shared by Greg and members of Sanctuary's community are humbling (an understatement).

In his latest effort, The Twenty Piece Shuffle: Why the Rich and the Poor Need Each Other, Paul transparently shares the incredible stories of Sanctuary ministries and applies them to the fact that everyone--rich and poor alike--needs intimate relationships and a strong sense of purpose and identity in life. These stories are heartbreaking and often troubling, and I'm so glad Paul shared them with us. This book will change your perspective on rich and poor and how God fits into all the suffering in the mess of the world.

If you haven't read either of Paul's offerings yet, I would start with God in the Alley. It's kind of like the intro-level course to Twenty Piece Shuffle.

These books are a great way to engage your heart and your mind in the causes of justice for the poor.

HASH(0xa7ad7204) out of 5 stars Beautiful Feb. 10 2014
By B. Wood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love this book. It is one of the most heart-stirring and gripping pieces of Christian writing I have ever read, and fills a niche that is generally left unfilled these days. Bro. Greg obviously has a heart for people on both sides of the tracks as well as a heart for God. I think this book would be easier to read in hard copy instead of on a Kindle because it tells a lot of true stories about individuals, and I found myself getting mixed up about who was who. Other than that, this book was perfect. <3

HASH(0xa7ad6f24) out of 5 stars A powerful challenge to engage with the poor Sept. 7 2014
By John Gibbs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The challenge for the first world church in the twenty-first century is to radically reform itself, such that people who are poor are not merely the subject of outreach efforts, but are found right at the heart of our worshipping communities, according to Greg Paul in this book. Sadly, a great many churches have not even got to the point of doing the outreach. They’re too busy trying to figure out how to develop a more relevant and attractive worship style.

The book tells the fascinating stories of numerous characters from the author’s church community, Sanctuary, which serves the poor and marginalised in downtown Toronto. There are homeless people, drug addicts, sex workers, disabled people, office people and ordinary suburbanites all sharing together in the richly textured community.

Rather than adopting the triumphalist tone of an aid agency, spruiking the number of people served and saved and providing an address to send more donations, the author puts the failures and immense personal costs of street work front and centre. What began as a mission to serve the poor turned into a humbling journey in which the author learned how to accept friendship and ministry from the people he had set out to serve.

There are stories of amazing personal transformation, of people becoming followers of Jesus in the most unlikely ways, but these stories occur towards the end of the book, to avoid the impression that the author might be trying to claim credit for what God has been doing. This book definitely provides a compelling challenge to the prevailing concept of what a “church” should be.

HASH(0xa7ab78d0) out of 5 stars Another great book by Greg Paul March 30 2010
By Ransom - Published on Amazon.com
Greg Paul is one of the finest writers in the Christian world. And his work among the poor gives him a wise outlook on life that the rest of us can benefit greatly from. Highly recommended.
