Item Description...
An estimated 3 million people constitute the fastest growing new class of Americans: street people. No longer confined to an easily recognizable group of down-and-out alcoholic men, this class now includes children, women, entire families, and people invisible to orinary passersby. The homeless, the mentally ill, the economically displaced, the chemically addicted, the runaways, and the lonely new lepers of our society -- people with AIDS -- all face different circumstances and have different needs. City Streets, City People highlights these circumstances and identifies these needs, and in clearly written, easy-to-follow chapters, outlines how anyone -- volunteer lay worker, part-time paraprofessional, or full-time Christian social worker -- can minister to the mental, physical, and spiritual dimensions of city people.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fr. Henri Nouwen and others read and commented on this book:  Mar 29, 2002
Henri Nouwen, author of Compassion and 40 other books on community and spirituality, writes:
"a truly excellent book, well-written, very convincing, very down-to-earth, and deeply pervaded with the Spirit of Jesus."

Senator Mark Hatfield writes:
"City Streets, City People affirms the biblical truth that the poor, sick and suffering are truly blessed, and that we will be judged by our response to them."

Bob Lupton, President of FCS Urban Ministries, writes:
"...captures the fundamentals or urban ministry more concisely and comprehensively than anyone I have read or listened to..."

Ron Benefiel, President of Nazarene Theological Seminary, writes: "a practical, helpful manual in the day-to-day how to's of ministry in the city. I highly recommend this book for anyone ministering in the urban context."

City Streets, City People is both a book of stories about homeless persons and a "user-friendly" guide that outlines how people of goodwill--volunteers, clergy, students and professionals--can respond compassionately and effectively to outcast groups in society. Christensen draws on his own experience in working with the homeless and persons with AIDS on the streets of New York, San Franscisco and Calcutta. He also shares how active urban workers can cultivate their own "inner garden of contemplative spirituality" and avoid burn-out so common in urban ministry.

Nominated for the 1989 Book of the Year Award, sponsored by Campus Life Ministries, and was selected by the United Methodist Church as official denominational curriculum. Widely used by colleges, seminaries and church groups as a handbook on urban ministry.

A classic urban ministry text from a broadly evangelical Christian perspective.
