"Greg Paul tells of whores and crazies, misfits and rejects that sound as if they stepped out from the pages of the Bible." -Eugene Peterson

Sam has survived physical, sexual, and substance abuse, terrible violence, and life on the streets. Wendy lives for the next high on crack, oblivious to her boyfriend's love. Neil is dying of AIDS.

These are the people of inner-city Toronto. Look into their distorted, obscure faces, their fractured lives, and catch a glimpse of the sublime. Greg Paul calls them tragic heroes-individuals who can offer a testament to God's love and mercy.

With emotional depth and spiritual intensity, Greg's compelling stories reveal that people with desperate lives have precious lessons to teach us about the character of God. God in the Alley offers a profound message of grace and calling that each one of us needs to hear.

"The experience of reading this book haunts, convicts, delights. But one thing is for sure: you don't want to miss it."
-Mark Buchanan, author of The Holy Wild: Trusting God in Everything

"Greg Paul writes beautifully and welcomes us into the life he lives.... I am grateful to have read this book."
-David Wilcox, musician, songwriter, and storyteller

"I dare you to read this book at more than one sitting. Each page is a seat belt that straps you in and the turning of the page pulls the straps tighter. When the ride is over, you'll want to start again."
-Leonard Sweet, author of numerous books including Soul Tsunami
