Finding Christ in the Heart of the Poor
For more than 25 years, Gary Smith, SJ, has been helping the poor as he lives among them and ministers to their needs. In Radical Compassion, Smith chronicles his life and work in the poverty-stricken Old Town section of Portland, Oregon. These touching and often heart-breaking stories reveal the problems and issues facing the growing homeless population in our country. As we witness Smith helping the poor, we learn the lessons of love, forgiveness, and acceptance that have radically changed his heart—and can radically change ours, as well.
