Book Review

"A Mile in My Shoes" by Trevor Hudson
Reviewed by Sarah

As the subtitle aptly describes it, this book will take you on a journey of ‘cultivating compassion.’ Hudson writes this book from a place of tremendous wisdom, growing up himself in the pain and oppression of apartheid in South Africa, but from the side of the advantaged. Even though he was while, Hudson from an early age took a protest to the systematic cruelty of apartheid, and led by example as a minister and leader. Through his own desire for a compassionate heart, Hudson began to lead those in his congregation on what he titled a “Pilgrimage of Pain and Hope,” and found a practice to take people into the shoes of other and towards a new heart of compassion. This book is exceptional and invites individuals or groups to journey towards the true, compassionate heart of God.

Overall Grace: A+
