Book Review: Tattoos on the Heart

Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion
by Father Gregory Boyle

Straight up: This book is a life changer.

We have all either experienced some sort of gang (gang activity) firsthand, or gone out of your way to avoid it. This book is not only an eye opener, it opens the heart, after which it will never be closed.

Fr. Boyle is a modern-day walking saint. Even just through this book, he has changed my life. He has done what so severely needs to be done: humanize gangsters.

He puts a story behind the faces: touching stories, stories of longing for Christ, searching, yearning. I can't tell you how many times I cried throughout this book.

You must read this; buy this for others. Support this man and his ventures.

He takes in gangsters and ex-convicts and gives them jobs and teaches them live skills, how to live, how to love. He treats them as they should be treated...with a father's love.

he has showed them Christ and in the process, showed us what kind of people we need to be.

Fr. Boyle is nationally known and I know one day he will be known everywhere. He is to gangsters what Mother Teresa was to the poor.

God bless you Father Boyle and all those who you touch.
