Publisher's Summary

Within 10 years, nine out of 10 people will claim "no religious affiliation". Many of these people will live in urban areas. Church leaders must learn how to effectively engage in ministry with this urban core, a group that includes both the poor and marginalized as well as the wealthy and influential. This book will guide you in developing a philosophy of ministry that can lead to restoration and renewal in your city.

Matt Carter and Darrin Patrick explain the biblical, theological, and historical foundations of ministry within the urban core, and how to plant churches where the gospel is not only faithfully preached and shared but also brings substantial benefits to those living in the community.

For the City relates the wisdom gleaned from years of serving their cities for the sake of God's kingdom. Carter and Patrick practically equip church leaders and Christians to look at their city as a mission field where individuals and churches can faithfully proclaim the gospel and live out the reality of a community changed and transformed by its message.

    "for the city or for my city?"

    The general idea of the book is a good concept and they cover it well. I was a little put off by the boastful tone, also having 2 authors means twice as long of an autobiographical section and it seemed like 1/3 of the book was more about the history of the authors, which isn't necessarily a bad story, just not what I purchased the book for. Overall the book felt lacking and I came away with a better vision of what being "for the city" means, but not much practical application for my city.

    The narrator was great, one of my new favorites.
