How Love Opens Our Eyes to Invisible People

I See You: How Love Opens Our Eyes to Invisible People
(IVP, 2019)

WHO: Terence Lester, founder of Love Beyond Walls, a nonprofit focused on poverty awareness and community mobilization.

HE SAYS: “When we are able to listen to someone else’s story with an open heart and hear their experience, which may look different from ours, we begin to close the gap between them and us.”

THE BIG IDEA: This book aims to deconstruct some of the misconceptions about the poor and provide real-life stories of those who are experiencing poverty.

THE PROGRESSION:
The author shares his own experiences along with stories of those who have experienced poverty and homelessness to challenge readers to really see the invisible people around them.

“Many of us find answers through faith that rescues us from the poverty that plagued our souls long before our economic status was defined.”
