“Old Men Dream”, Pete’s story about his journey of homelessness, has touched so many people in such personal ways we could only imagine before publication. We are grateful to each of you who have written to share the insights you have received from reading this story. Here are some
comments and reviews of the book Old Men Dream by Pete Fullerton.
"I want God to be that real in my
"I just couldn't stop reading. You
kept me spell bound , Pete!" ~M.S.
"Are you sure you have never
written a book before?" ~C.A.
"Yes, each of us does have a
different story and yours is remarkable. Reading about your amazing
journey brought tears more than a few times. I think it's often difficult
to sustain the realness of Christ in our lives. Your conversations with
God brought back thoughts of years ago what I could do that and a desire to try
more often. Your unrelenting and ability to make Him personal and real to
others is truly a gift." ~C.B.L.
"I couldn't put your book down.
I was moved to my core as I read. I experienced your excitement, joy,
confusion, pain, sorrow, and conviction as you allowed me to be a part of your amazing
journey. Thank you for the beautiful reminder and example of how God works
through, and with us." ~K.S.
You did such a great job of the telling of the story ;”Old Men Dream”. I have
given my copy to a friend who has asked me to please send another for her son.
Will you please send five more copies to me just as soon as possible? We loved
it and want to tell everyone we know you personally." ~S.R.
I have received numerous requests for copies of the book: "Old Men Dream", and
need three more copies for my mother-in-law who will be distributing them to
co-workers at the ‘Mercy Center’ in Burlingame."
"We are working on a donation so you’ll hear from me again soon. Just
finished the book- a thought-provoking, and inspirational work. Congrats,
Pete and Sue." ~D.
I finished reading your walk about, and what a time you had. God was with you
all the way. It was very loving of Sue and your family to let you go and walk
through the “Old Man” shoes.
Take care, and God bless you
"I just loved your book! I couldn’t get enough of all your wonderful,
enlightening experiences. What a trip!! It must have been a trip of a lifetime, and I’m
so glad you wrote about it. Please send ten copies so I can share it with friends, family, and co-workers to
remind us all to be human to everyone , treat
all with respect, and be grateful for all we have and where we live. We are all
very blessed!!" ~K.B.
"When I started reading “Old Men Dream” I found it hard to put down. What an
amazing story! It is good to know of the kindness and trust shown by many people
toward a stranger. We hear so much about the indifference and cruelty that goes
on. I’m glad you survived, Pete." ~A.A.
"It was amazing to me that you didn’t just quit the first week. I would have! Anytime you came against a situation where you got
sick, or were confronted by hostility I would yell at you (to myself of course)
and say to you as I read: "Go home you idiot!" True- If you had don’t that the
story would have been less gratifying, but at least I would have had to yell at
you a lot less – that is to say I would have had to yell at you to myself a lot
less than I did." ~K.B.
I’m so impressed by your book! Aside from regular writer’s envy that A) It’s
finished, and B) It’s published, it’s also just a lovely piece of work. Reading it, I truly felt like I was with you on your journey. You did such a
good job of capturing the voices of the people you encountered, and your own
voice as well. It was such a treat to “hear” your voice on every page! You
definitely inspired me to finish my own book, and hope it comes out nearly as
inspiring." ~ N.A.
