Experience teaches that traditional approaches to ministry education do not work well in the ever-changing climate of the city. This book offers a new way to look at ministry training by presenting a number of informative case studies that can help in equipping people to minister effectively in the urban context.
The book is built around six case studies that chronicle very different examples of urban theological education and that highlight both the challenge and the promise of creative approaches to education for ministry in multicultural urban locales. Commentaries by noted educators and church leaders point to the pitfalls and opportunities of inner-city work. Purposely designed for a variety of educational settings, this book is the best resource now available for exploring the task of urban ministry.
