An enjoyable and eye-opening series of vignettes illustrating lessons learned by a Cincinati pastor from his years of service in an inner city church.

This is a collection of true stories about people helping people in all sorts of circumstances and needs. Many tearful moments and words which bring peace, joy and warmth to ones inner feelings. If you tend to be an emotional person, which I am, you may want to read in the privacy of your own home. This is a book I will probably reread over time. Neleh

What a delightful book. So easy to read and find inspiration in each story. Helps renew faith in humanity and our power to grow with the circumstances we have. Should have more of this on the news.

Found the perspective from a pasto's view eye opening. Would recommend to anyone questioning diversity within their church community. The stories were compelling and heart warming.

The author seems to end nearly every vignette with the death of one or more of that chapter's characters. It was rather predictable and lost impact. Also, in the epilog, which is a parable, pages are missing. Of course, this detracted from the intent of completing and summing up the author's book. Some closer editing would have made this 4 stars.

Dr Mettey must have had a wonderful ministry, and met so many people with life filling experiences. I wish I had known of this book before, I will reread it many more times, I am sure.

A book fiilled with stories of real-life, perfectly imperfect, perfectly ordinary ( and sometimes down-right strange or unlikeable) people. However each managed to make a memorable impact on the lives of those around them just by being in this world. Told with humor and love, joy and sadness. No one who knows God can read this without feeling deep emotions. A lovely inspiring book.

Book starts off slower than I expected but once I got used to the writing style & story format, I really enjoyed it. A wonderful example of people reaching out to their community and welcoming / loving people who needed help (church school bus, visitations, hugs). Some very memorable people are in these stories.

Exceptional Book! I absolutely, positively loved reading this book. It made me laugh, cry and think really hard about this life and the wonderful people that have passed through it. I can identify with the people that were written in this book. Highly recommend it.
