About the Author

Kevin Nye is a writer and advocate working toward ending homelessness by engaging best practices. He has written on the intersections of homelessness and faith for Religion News Service, Sojourners, Red Letter Christians, and more. He has presented at national conferences on the topic of homelessness, including Housing First Partners Conference 2022.

Kevin's first book released in August of 2022 and is titled, "Grace Can Lead Us Home: A Christian Call to End Homelessness." Kevin currently lives with his wife and son in Minneapolis, MN, where he works as Housing Director at an organization addressing youth homelessness.


"Drawing on years of experience in homelessness services and relationships built with the unhoused people he has met along the way, Kevin Nye skillfully walks readers through the complex issues that surround homelessness while casting a powerful theological vision that calls us to shelter all God's people through hope and faithful action. Personal and prophetic, practical and powerful, Grace Can Lead Us Home is desperately needed, breathing love and new life into a grace-filled response to the housing and homelessness crisis."
----REV. DR. JACQUI LEWIS, senior minister of Middle Collegiate Church and author of Fierce Love: A Bold Path to Ferocious Courage and Rule-Breaking Kindness That Can Heal the World
"By drawing readers back to the biblical vision of justice, Kevin Nye gives readers a new lens for seeing their unhoused neighbors. He breaks open common myths about the causes of homelessness and challenges attitudes in the church that essentially blame people for their trauma. Instead, Nye articulates as well as lives out neighbor-love that is less about 'us and them' and more about 'we, ' who are equally in need of grace. This vision isn't just about addressing homelessness but also about remembering our humanity."
----KATELYN BEATY, editor and author of Celebrities for Jesus
"I am so glad this book exists because as Christians we worship a homeless Savior yet when we encounter people experiencing homelessness, our response often lands somewhere between indifference and outright rejection. This is not the way of Jesus. In Grace Can Lead Us Home, Kevin Nye challenges us to rethink what it means to be the people of God in and for the world, particularly in how we practically go about loving and serving our neighbors in need. If your heart breaks every time you walk by someone sleeping on the sidewalk but you don't know how to be Christ to them, this is the book for you."
----ZACK HUNT, author of Unraptured: How End Times Theology Gets It Wrong
"My best friend's father was unhoused for years. She would visit him in a tent off the side of a highway. Kevin Nye will help you see that unhoused people are fathers, and mothers, and family members, and friends. They are human beings worthy of our attention and deserving of dignity. Grace Can Lead Us Home is a book about love, compassion, and the value of humanity."
----HEATHER THOMPSON DAY, author of It's Not Your Turn
"In Grace Can Lead Us Home, Kevin Nye partakes in the sacred work of rehumanization. In illustrating some realities of our neighbors experiencing homelessness, he shows us where we might find Jesus. In showing us how we might overcome this reality, he shows us how we might embody Jesus."
----R. G. A. "TREY" FERGUSON III, founding president of RFX Ministries, director of equipping at Refuge Church Miami, and cohost of Three Black Men podcast
"This timely, moving, well-researched book is an exploration of the stunning injustice of mass homelessness in one of the wealthiest countries in the world. What is so astounding is not only that so much human suffering exists, but that we--Christians--have allowed it to endure for so long. These pages contain a call to compassion, community, and justice. They implore us to reexamine our preconceived notions and to transform our hearts, minds, and world."
----LINDSEY KRINKS, author of Praying with Our Feet
"In exploring the grace of perhaps the most famous person in history to experience homelessness, Jesus Christ, Kevin Nye reveals the Christ in the millions of people experiencing homelessness in the world today. In doing so, Nye follows the call of God by proposing a bold but necessary plea: to end homelessness."
----MASON MENNENGA, YouTuber and host of A People's Theology podcast
