This book shares Monte Sahlin’s findings from a decade of intensive research and scores of experimental projects, and tells the stories behind the projects. It also reflects on the heritage of urban mission in the Seventh-day Adventist Church and why this fast-growing evangelical movement has found the cities such a challenge. This volume weaves together theological principles, social analysis, stories of front-line ministry, and practical ideas for pastors, ministry directors, and congregational leaders. In a world where most people now live in metropolitan areas, and in North America and Europe fully 80 percent of the population is metropolitan, this book provides a wide range of essential information for anyone serious about the mission of Christ in a contemporary context.
