How to Hug a Smelly Guy captures Rev. Jeff Johnson's formation as a
disciple of Jesus and an urban pastor through the use of stories and
personal encounters with God's grace and providence. It puts into words
the heartbeat of Building Hope in the City as Johnson explores lessons
he has learned in city ministry, cross-cultural mission, leadership, and
the uncanny - and often humorous - wisdom of God, who invites broken
people to share in His Kingdom and its work.
