A call to arms for the churches, Franklin's book urges direct engagement by African American and other churches with regard to America's mounting social problems. Bringing informed and astute analysis of the urban scene, the national picture, and the ways of black churches, he details programs that really work to salvage the "wasted treasures" of black urban youths--as well as programs for children, elders, and economic action.
Practical concerns, for example, how churches can find public and private resource to aid their efforts, are presented, as well as suggestions for renewing the imperiled church itself. The capstone is Franklin's vision of an activist Christian commitment that can model fellowship and reconciliation.
Raised in an urban, working-class setting, with many years of experience in and with the churches, Franklin combines in this work the conviction of a public moralist with the dedication and savvy of an urban churchman.
