The Power of Boundless Compassion
By Gregory Boyle
I JUST finished reading this book and I had to share it with you!
I would consider this a must read for anybody. Adult that is.
Caution: This is a compilation of real stories about gang members and their lives.
The language is real and rough. If you are easily offended, this book is not for
you. But if you interested in hearing how one man is making a big difference
in a real way, this book is for you!
Father Gregory will make you re-think and re-define your definitions of
success, failure, forgiveness, compassion, and hope. He reminds us that
these are all deep wells that God wants us to draw from when we are
internally (as well as externally) judging the worth of another Soul on this planet.
Further, Father Doyle reminds us that whether you are a nurse in an ER or a homie from the hood,
He will use you right where you are and just as you are!
But don't think this is all heavy spiritual reading... It is not.
I laughed as much as I cried. Humor abounds in his skilled story telling.
The same, but different: I would compare this to Ann Voskamp's
Best Seller "One Thousand Gifts" , only much grittier.
From the Back of the book:
This was a GOOD book!
You should read it!
