Christians are eager to respond to the call to seek the Shalom of the city today. While some ministries such as feeding the poor and environmental care seem obvious, Christians also need to see the various dimensions of the city such as its policies and culture which also shape the city. This book draws from a variety of sources to suggest ways that Christians can do good in these different aspects of city life. It is the biblical concept of Shalom – freedom, unity, wholeness and healing – which forms the overarching vision in this quest to make cities liveable.
