Item description for The City in the Valley: Biblical Interpretation and Urban Theology (Studies in Biblical Literature) (Society of Biblical Literature/Studies in Biblical Literature) by Dieter Georgi...

Is there still promise in the metropolis? Can modern cities have lasting value? Drawing on a wide range of resources including the writings of Paul, the Apocalypse, Greco-Roman literature, church history, theology, and socioeconomic theory, Dieter Georgi answers yes. Our cities can become more than human and ecological garbage dumps; they can aspire to be communities where people live in harmony with one another and their environment. In support of this lofty goal, Georgi unmasks economic and political theories and elements of Christian theology that have led to the demise of cities and then advocates a new praxis of urban theology, a concrete way of living together in the cities of today and tomorrow.

Reviews - What do customers think about The City in the Valley: Biblical Interpretation and Urban Theology (Studies in Biblical Literature) (Society of Biblical Literature/Studies in Biblical Literature)?

Worth Reading  Jan 27, 2006
A quick glance at the table of contents is reason enough to peruse this book. Particular mention is Chapter 9: "Why Was Paul Killed? The Epistle to the Romans as a Document of Resistance". To look at the Epistle as a document of resistance against the Roman Empire of the first century (C.E.) allows one to see Early Christianity from a different perspective, and the difference it can make in the urban context under the present U.S. Empire. Pick it up! You won't be disappointed!
