Reaching for the New Jerusalem
A Biblical and Theological Framework for the City
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"The many authors of this book offer a fresh paradigm for our mission and ministry in the city--'to rebuild our cities of Enoch on the blueprint plans of the New Jerusalem, the blueprints of Christ.'"
--Eldin Villafane, Professor of Christian Social Ethics and Founding Director of the Center for Urban Ministerial Education (CUME), Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
"Written by a diverse cadre of urban theological specialists and practitioners, this compilation is timely, scholarly, relevant, probing, and enlightening. Like a spiritual laser, rays of hope and healing keep flashing through the pages of these articles written by men and women of solid biblical faith who every day work, research, teach, and 'pray for the peace of the city' as they point us to the 'beautiful city of God.'"
--Michael E. Haynes, Pastor Emeritus, Twelfth Baptist Church, Boston, MA
