Good Books

 

An urban ministry education never ends! The contexts and problems are too complex and always evolving. As soon as we think we've got something mastered, we're probably getting off track or excluding someone. I recommend learning from the city's living texts above all -- the people, streets, buildings, markets, and public spaces -- but these books will help you interpret what you're looking at and guide you toward paths of transformative action.
