Item description for Renewing The City: Reflections On Community Development And Urban Renewal by Robert D. Lupton & Raymond J. Bakke...

Urban ministry legend Robert Lupton, from Atlanta, tackles the story of Nehemiah from 3 perspectives - as biblical narrative, through the Jewish midrash traditions, and as a contemporary analogy for modern urban ministers. His insights and perspectives bring a freshness to Nehemiah's life.

Publishers Description
When an expatriate bureaucrat toured a devastated city, he saw more than ashes and ruins. He envisioned a thriving metropolis where God's people could find safety and community. Likewise, when we consider today's urban challenges, we can be daunted by corruption and despair, or we can see opportunities for rejuvenation, restoration and rebirth. Community developer and urban activist Robert D. Lupton looks to the Old Testament example of Nehemiah as a role model for community transformation and renewal. Lupton sees the book of Nehemiah as the memoirs of an urban developer who transformed a decaying city into a place of security and vitality. Placing Nehemiah's story in juxtaposition with contemporary realities offers encouragement and concrete models for how our own metropolitan environments can be revitalized. Nehemiah's example--and Lupton's--offer guidance and hope for all who would seek the welfare of their cities.
