If Gods way in the world can be described as cruciform and covenantal, so can the ministry to which we are summoned in urban settings. For urban churches are called to covenant with God and others at the intersection of the places where God is bringing life out to the death-tending ways of our urban realities.
from the introduction
Joseph W. Daniels Jr., Lead Pastor, Emory United Methodist Church, and District Superintendent, Greater Washington District, Baltimore-Washington Conference, The United Methodist Church
"Roger Gench has worked in the trenches of urban ministry for several decades. In these pages he reveals lessons he has learned while working alongside others committed to making this world a better place for all."
Gradye Parsons, Stated Clerk of the General Assembly, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
"With a good dose of wisdom, experience, and humility, Roger Gench weaves together a powerful text on pastoral leadership, theology, and the disciplines of community organizing. Gench writes with refreshing honesty about 'doing theology from the trenches of urban ministry,' but his insights into the 'cruciform covenant' extend far beyond the urban context. Through sermons, practical applications, and thought-provoking discussion questions, Gench provides a guidebook for leaders to help their own communities stand in covenant relationship with God and others 'at the intersection where God is bringing justice, reconciliation, and life out of the crucifixions that litter our landscapes.' Tackling topics such as race, poverty, food deserts, and living wages alongside the Apostles' Creed and the Great Commandment, this book is a must-read for those leaders who desire to deepen a congregation's theological self-understanding and transform the congregations service and witness in the community."
Jessica Tate, Director, NEXT Church
