      I agree. I wrote another organization, "Common Ground" a rebuttal on their position that understanding the Trinity came first, and that they were "surprised" over the laity discussions over poverty, immigration, church closings, and race - rather than these deeper questions. I quoted to them Our Lord's injunction, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and strength and mind, and - no less important - thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On this hang the Law and the prophets." (Or, as Hillel said the same when asked to define the Law, "All the rest [of the Law] is commentary." James the apostle also said in so many words, we manifest our faith by how we treat other people. The late mayor of chicago, Richard J. Daley (father of the present mayor) once said to Mayor Lindsay (NYC)'s lofty statements of "bringing peace to everyone," "People are interested in whether their garbage is picked up on time...as showing that you care about the neighborhood and its concerns." Daley was a devout church-goer. Sincerely,Marian Shaw

      Great book on Christian Community Development in an urban setting!I was given a copy as a gift. When I was done reading, I immediately bought four more to give as gifts to friends. Two of those friends have already told me that they're enjoying the read as well.

      Lupton brings his 30 years of inner city ministry experience to the pages of this book. He shares real life stories of changed lives and the results of surface thinking concerning those who live in low-income neighborhoods as well as some very practical and Biblical solutions that can change poverty in America.
