Cry Of The Urban Poor Bulk Quantity Discount of 20 or More copies of any title- call 888-816-9068 For A Quote!

OUT OF STOCK...Cry of the Urban Poor analyzes the need for transformational churches to impact the slums of the mega-cities of the world. The urban poor now constitute an unreached people group that is the third largest in the world—one that is doubling every decade and among the most responsive to the gospel. The most strategic and needed actions to reach this growing population with the gospel relate to breaking the bonds of injustice—sin, oppression, and poverty—and modeling Jesus' approach for social change by establishing movements of disciples among the poor. This revised edition of Cry of the Urban Poor reports the findings by Viv Grigg and his co-workers after years of living and working in the slums of some of the largest cities in Asia, Latin America, and the United States. It describes their efforts to discover universal principles for church-planting among the poor. This combination of anthropological and sociological reflections, integrated with principles drawn from practical experience, will challenge the missing emphasis on mission in the world's great city slums.

Viv Grigg coordinates the Encarnacao Network of Urban Poor Mission Leaders and directs Urban Leadership Foundation. He is a graduate of Fuller School of World Missions and is working on his doctorate in Theology of Transformative Revival at Auckland University. Viv and his wife, I'da, have pioneered work in mega-cities around the world.

Alarmist claims are made about these ‘demons’, while the possibility of a peaceful Islam is dismissed. Many are confused about the religion’s contradictory faces. Is it possible for Christians to relate to Muslims without being politically naďve or theologically liberal? Steve believes it is. He shares his own journey and reflects upon how he arrived at the crucial ingredient - grace.

Companion To The Poor Bulk Quantity Discount of 20 or More copies of any title- call 888-816-9068 For A Quote!

out of stock... Viv Grigg challenges us to reexamine our strategies and design new approaches that will build Christ's kingdom among the poor—who comprise nearly half the world. When he entered the Manila squatter settlement of Tatalon in 1979, Grigg knew what he wanted to do but not how to do it. The need was obvious—to establish a Christian church among Asia's forgotten people, the impoverished slum dwellers of its vast megalopolises. The challenge was to find a way that did not treat people's spiritual needs in isolation from their poverty, without simply becoming another economic or social relief program with no evangelistic component. This book is the enthralling story of how the author met and solved this problem. But in a sense, it is an unfinished story. What has begun is but the beginning of the founding of a Christian community in a dark place. This is not Viv Grigg's story alone, but God's story. For it is God who is working in Tatalon and urban slums like it, and giving people a hope that affects all of life. 240 page paperback.

For many in the West, the worldwide presence of Islam has gone largely unnoticed over the years. Islam has simply been perceived as just another world religion. Meanwhile, Muslims have been quietly establishing themselves in most Western cultures and nations, and their places of worship have risen alongside the existing churches and gathering places in these communities. Suddenly, however, Islam has become “the enemy,” a force to be reckoned with and confronted. With catastrophic terrorism and war zones dotting the globe, Western nations are desperately trying to understand what lies behind all this hostility.
