This work acknowledges the structural and financial challenges churches face. The author argues, however, that the primary challenge is theological. People have to start to think and read through urban eyes* to find a way of expressing the Word of God on the urban front lines.;In 1900, three per cent of the world's population lived in cities. By the year 2000, 50 per cent of the world's far greater population will live in cities. The influence of cities - culturally, economically and morally - is far greater still. And the pace is increasing. As of 1997, the world population stands at six billion. By 2007, it will be seven billion - mostly in cities and mostly in Asia. These twin realities are driving the planet away from the Atlantic-centric world and towards the Pacific Rim.;Dr Bakke's approach is to explore the theme of the city in the Old and New Testaments, using his own experiences to show how this neglected mission field can be tackled. Ray Bakke is the author of The Urban Christian.
