A true story of faith and hope from the late night suicide crisis guy Midnight, Jesus & Me is an at once heartbreaking, provocative, and inspirational collection of true-life tales from J.M. Blaine, that semi-agnostic, evangelical absurdist, existential Christian, licensed psychiatric guy. He invites readers to listen to the secret lives of saints and sinners falling, as he questions the meaning of it all and determines that there are no easy answers. Armed with a mental health degree, Blaine works his way through mega-church counseling centers, drug rehabs, and graveyard shifts on the psychiatric crisis response team, all the while trying to hold onto his own sanity and not lose what little religion he has left. Blaine offers a street-level vision of charity, with deep concern for and engagement with the young, the marginal, and the troubled. Through stories, parables, and personal insights, the author highlights the ties that bind us rather than those that divide, that we are all struggling to grasp peace, live in grace, and find our way back home.
