Item description for Encounter God in the City: Onramps to Personal And Community Transformation by Randy White & Ray Bakke...

Overview
IVP Print On Demand Title God is at work in the city. And he invites his people to join him. But the city is not merely a mission field for Christians to target. The city is also the environment where Christians are discipled and lives are forged into the image of Jesus. Urban ministry veteran Randy White shows how God transforms you when you answer God's call to the city. Urban life peels away your sin and self-deception and challenges your unexamined assumptions about privilege, race, class and power. Experiential discipleship moves you from abstract theory to hands-on learning and on-the-ground action, revolutionizing your perspective and making a difference in local neighborhoods and beyond. Passionate and practical, White's vivid narratives of experiencing God in the city show you how your spiritual health is intertwined with the health of the metropolis. Seek the welfare of the city, and both you and the city will be transformed.

Reviews - What do customers think about Encounter God in the City: Onramps to Personal And Community Transformation?

Compelling! White is a story teller  Oct 30, 2006
Randy White is an amazing story teller ... and he has lots of stories to tell. As a "relocator" moving from suburban affluence to inner city poverty, White talks eloquently about the power of the city to teach us - about ourselves, about others and about God. What's more, he examines in some detail not only how you might draw personal lessons from urban America, but how those in ministry can leverage the urban experience to bring transformation. This is a great book on pedagogy for anyone who considers themselves a teacher. More than that, it is a very personal account of how White and his family regularly encounter God in the city.
