Jan 7, 2015Among Pigeons is an awesome book that is enlightening and inspiring. I highly recommend this book; it really communicates the basics of humanity in regards to our vital need for relationship with one another. It also highlights how we often starve ourselves and others of potentially benefiting relationship experiences due to perspectives of economics/class, ethnicity, race, education, etc. This book achieves all the basic desires and expectations one might have reading such a piece; adventure, mystery, suspense, laughter, heroism, and love. I would summarize it's most powerful point referencing a bible verse, "Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it." (Heb 13:2 NLT) If you have any reading in you, check this one out!

It has opened my eyes to the homelessness more than I have have expected. It makes me want to do more in my community as I see more and more unfortunate individuals who are struggling to stay alive. I look forward to the book number two, well done Dr. Wood.
