Description: A comprehensive introduction to the particular challenges and opportunities of congregational ministry in urban settings. Urban ministry has long been a part of seminary curricula, buta basic and definitive understanding of what students should know as they prepare for congregational ministry in the city has remained elusive. Too often it is assumed thatthe theological resources developed for ministry inother settings areadequate for urban ministry, but these resources fail to account for the unique challenges and opportunitiesof the urban setting.Ronald Petersclarifies the nature of urban ministry asa theological discipline byshowing howits corevalues of love, justice, community, and reconciliation (among others) engagetheissues of economics, education, family life, public health, ethnic relations, and religious life in the urban environment.Arguing thatthecity has always servedas an arena of God's activity, Petersarticulates a theological rationale for urban ministry that is bothhopefuland yetrealistic,affirming thatGod lovesthecity and its people and encouraging practitioners to do the same.
