Product Description

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.
