Theirs Is the Kingdom
Author: Robert D. Lupton
Celebrating the Gospel in Urban America
“A gripping discovery of God’s grace where we least expect to find it—in the decaying core of the city.” —Ronald A. Nikkel, president, Prison Fellowship International
“The story of Lupton’s ministry is one of the most inspiring in America. Those of us who are trying to accomplish something of value in urban settings look to him and his co-workers as models.” —Tony Campolo, author of Stories That Feed Your Soul
Urban ministry activist Robert Lupton moved into a high crime area of Atlanta intending to bring Christ’s message into the ghetto—but his humbling discovery of a spiritual life already flowering in the city’s urban soil forces the minister to re-examine the deepest parts of his own soul, confronting his own patronizing, materialistic attitudes and the biases he himself held against the urban poor.
Timely, informative reflections on the relationship between poverty and Christianity, the responsibilities of the haves and have-nots, and the lessons Christians can learn from the poor.
