Jesus constantly provoked people, because he desperately wanted to wake them up to a greater reality. Jesus didn’t want anyone to miss out on the riches of living a life of love and purpose. He did this by breaking lots of religious rules, hanging out with all of the wrong people and telling crazy stories in which the bad guy was sometimes the hero. What happened to Jesus meek and mild? This revolutionary challenged society to turn from injustice, fight for the weak and become a servant to all. Some were provoked to follow him, and some were provoked to kill him.
Juan Galloway is President and CEO of New York City Relief, an organization that has been serving people experiencing homelessness in innovative ways since 1989. NYCR takes thousands of volunteers to serve friends living on the streets through their famous mobile outreaches known as The Relief Buses and The Relief Co-ops.
In PROVOKED, Juan tells how his life was changed by encounters with God through the poor. Journeying with the homeless was a refining process in which he came to the end of himself and to the beginning of freedom. Juan hungered for intimacy with God, but found that a key ingredient for that was loving people. This was challenging for an uncomfortable introvert. Using fascinating real-world stories from the frontlines, lessons and parables, Juan tells how God provokes all of us to lay down our lives for others and in the process, discover what life is really about.
