As the world population migrates toward urban centers, the church must
reevaluate its strategies for evangelism. With a thorough, textbook approach,
Harvie Conn and Manuel Ortiz examine the historical significance of cities and
how the industrial age has changed the urban landscape.
They point out that the anti-urban mentality of many churches is not based
on biblical teaching, and they discuss the role of social sciences in
developing models for effective urban ministries. The final, and perhaps most
important, section of the book deals with the training and equipping of leaders
for inner-city work.
This treatise provides both practical and philosophical discussion on the
kingdom of God in todays urban centers.
It will be a vital guide to any church or ministry seeking to expand its
outreach in the city.
