Item Description...
Overview
A comprehensive introduction to the particular challenges and opportunities of congregational ministry in urban settings In spite of the fact that urban ministry has long been a part of seminary curricula, a basic and definitive understanding of what students should know as they prepare for congregational ministry in the city hs remained elusive. Ronald E. Peters proposes to clarify the core issues and lay out the essential issues in the practice of urban ministry. He explains the history of the church's engagement with the city, articulates a theological grounding for ministry in urban areas, and describes the seven realities with which urban ministry must deal: economics, public education, family life, public health, ethnic/race relations, the justice system, and the urban environment.

Publishers Description
A comprehensive introduction to the particular challenges and opportunities of congregational ministry in urban settings.
Urban ministry has long been a part of seminary curricula, but a basic and definitive understanding of what students should know as they prepare for congregational ministry in the city has remained elusive. Too often it is assumed that the theological resources developed for ministry in other settings are adequate for urban ministry, but these resources fail to account for the unique challenges and opportunities of the urban setting. Ronald Peters clarifies the nature of urban ministry as a theological discipline by showing how its core values of love, justice, community, and reconciliation (among others) engage the issues of economics, education, family life, public health, ethnic relations, and religious life in the urban environment. Arguing that the city has always served as an arena of God's activity, Peters articulates a theological rationale for urban ministry that is both hopeful and yet realistic, affirming that God loves the city and its people and encouraging practitioners to do the same.
