Additional Info

Chris Phillips is taking a big risk. He's quitting his job as a hardware store manager, giving up all material possessions (except a backpack, toothbrush, and razor) and going out into the world to try to live as Jesus did. What he learns is sometimes thought-provoking and sometimes hilarious. Ending up being swept into a homeless shelter where he meets his own "disciples," Chris finds that such decisions can matter even today if only in social and metaphorical ways.
