Item description for Cry of the Urban Poor: Reaching the Slums of Today's Mega-Cities by Viv Grigg...

Analyzes the need for transformational churches to impact the slums of the mega-cities of the world.

Publishers Description
The urban poor now constitute an unreached people group that is the third largest in the world one that is doubling every decade and among the most responsive to the gospel. The most strategic and needed actions to reach this growing population with the gospel relate to breaking the bonds of injustice sin, oppression, and poverty and modeling Jesus' approach for social change by establishing movements of disciples among the poor.This revised edition of Cry of the Urban Poor reports the findings by Viv Grigg and his co-workers after years of living and working in the slums of some of the largest cities in Asia, Latin America, and the United States. It describes their efforts to discover universal principles for church-planting among the poor.This combination of anthropological and sociological reflections, integrated with principles drawn from practical experience, will challenge the missing emphasis on mission in the world's great city slums.

Inspiring book!  Mar 23, 2006
Viv's book about reaching Asia's forgotten people, the impoverished slum-dwellers of the megacity, in an incarnational way, is truly inspiring. Out of this came one of the most radical mission movements in the world today, Servants to Asia's Urban Poor ( Great book.
