Product Description

Young, old, black, white, rich and poor - amidst the numerous boundaries drawn between people in our churches, there is a very stark line drawn between the urban and suburban Christians. In Linking Arms, Linking Lives, Ron Sider, John Perkins and two additional contributors look beyond the common sterotypes typified in our church communities, and make a compelling case for partnerships that cross the urban/suburban boundary. In order to enact effective ministries to the poor, these partnerships between believers are absolutely essential if communities are to be transformed by the power of the Gospel.
Providing guidelines for powerful partnerships, this practical resource addresses the changing socio-economic and cultural landscape, while drawing upon the wisdom of development practitioners, pastors, and theologians. The result of gleaning from this growing network of partnerships is a gospel-oriented foundation with sound and workable guidelines. All who are interested in finding viable ways to help the poor, will welcome this thoughtful and hope-filled book.

Publisher's Description

Among the various lines drawn between people in the church--male and female, young and old, black and white, rich and poor, Republican and Democrat--there is the line between the urban and the suburban. The stereotypes of the edgy, socially active, multicultural urban Christian and the middle-class, comfortable, upwardly mobile suburban Christian mix fact and fiction. Linking Arms, Linking Lives looks beyond stereotypes and makes a compelling case for partnership that crosses urban and suburban for effective ministry among the poor.
Drawing from a growing network of development practitioners, pastors, and theologians, this book focuses on the experiences of partnership between urban and suburban entities to provide both theological foundations and practical guidelines for those who desire to partner effectively. All who want to find viable ways to help the poor will welcome this thoughtful and hope-filled book. Includes a Foreword by Noel Castellanos.
