This book is a provocative look at the "who", "what", "when", "where" and "why" of those who have fallen by the wayside and have matriculated into the abyss of hopelessness and despair. An indictment is issued to the churches that should be praying and seeking the peace of their inner cities, and who are not. Special focus is given in the first chapter on how the traditional church has missed the mark of the highway and hedge ministry of Jesus' commission. As you continue exploring the text you will find the unfortunate acceptance of the generational strongholds of poverty, distorted perceptions of self, and eventual self-destruction passed on by previous generation.

Robert Lupton--educated and middle class--moved into a high crime area of Atlanta with the intention of bringing Chirst's message into the ghetto. In this insightful and moving series of vignettes, he shows how his experiences there shattered many of his assuptions about himself and the nature of poverty in America. He soon found that his mission was as much about his own salvation as it was about that of the urban poor. He was surprised to learn that a spiritual life had already taken root in the urban soil, exposing his own patronizing attitudes, materialism, and biases.

God is at work in the city. And he invites his people to join him. But the city is not merely a mission field for Christians to target. The city is also the environment where Christians are discipled and lives are forged into the image of Jesus.

Urban ministry veteran Randy White shows how God transforms us when we answer God's call to the city. Urban life peels away our sin and self-deception and challenges our unexamined assumptions about privilege, race, class and power. Experiential discipleship moves us from abstract theory to hands-on learning and on-the-ground action, revolutionizing our perspectives and making a difference in local neighborhoods and beyond.

Passionate and practical, White's vivid narratives of experiencing God in the city show us how our spiritual health is intertwined with the health of the metropolis. Seek the welfare of the city, and both you and the city will be transformed.

Randy White (D. Min., Bakke Graduate University) is national coordinator for urban projects and executive director of the Fresno Institute for Urban Leadership for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA. He has served with InterVarsity in a variety of roles since 1981. A licensed Baptist minister and commissioned Presbyterian missionary, White serves on several boards and committees working on urban development in Fresno, California. His books include Journey to the Center of the City: Making a Difference in an Urban Neighborhood.
