Publisher's Description

Jesus is still the answer for urban ministries, for ministries to the downtrodden, poor, and distressed in our cities.

A Heart for the City is a rich compendium of valuable information on city ministries, written by people who are currently ministering in the city, including pastors, Christian school administrators, and directors of homeless missions. It includes many illustrations and case studies that will prove valuable to any who work in the city or who want to understand how to more effectively help in the city.

There are 29 chapters, divided into the following seven parts:

- Context and History
- Biblical and Philosophical Foundations
- Education and Training
- Local Church Models
- Ethnic Communities
- Disenfranchised Subcultures
- Children and Youth

A Heart For the City is a unique treasure of encouragement for those serving in the inner city. You will surely be blessed!
