God is at work in the city. And he invites his people to join him. But the city is not merely a mission field for Christians to target. The city is also the environment where Christians are discipled and lives are forged into the image of Jesus.

Urban ministry veteran Randy White shows how God transforms us when we answer God's call to the city. Urban life peels away our sin and self-deception and challenges our unexamined assumptions about privilege, race, class and power. Experiential discipleship moves us from abstract theory to hands-on learning and on-the-ground action, revolutionizing our perspectives and making a difference in local neighbourhoods and beyond.

Passionate and practical, White's vivid narratives of experiencing God in the city show us how our spiritual health is intertwined with the health of the metropolis. Seek the welfare of the city, and both you and the city will be transformed.

-Publisher

"Randy White takes us on a mind-opening journey once again, this time onto the challenging and transformative pathway of discipleship in the context of the city. Based on his years of living in and studying the urban context, White distills in a manner not found in any other book I know the power of the written text in understanding his own transformation, even as he facilitates and nurtures a similar transformation among young adults and others seeking to appreciate and encounter God in the complex and often chaotic sociocultural landscape of the city. This book would interest anyone who is grappling with the question of what it means to be a disciple of Christ in our world today.Encounter God in the Cityis a must-have book in particular for those who are responsible for mentoring or leading others into a full embrace of and by God. White does us all a great service by not only sharing his story but providing tangible examples and tools for transformation."
