Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Aaron Boyd began to sing. The audience that day was mamasans, go-go dancers, girls working in prostitution and "johns"- men who had traveled far looking for sex. His band, Bluetree, had been invited to play worship songs in this bar, hidden deep in Pattaya, Thailand, the human-trafficking capital of the world. As a guitar line looped and repeated, as heat and humidity pressed down like an unseen hand, Aaron began to sing a new song: "Greater things are yet to come; greater things are still to be done in this city."
"God of This City" was birthed that day, soon became a favorite at Louie Giglio's Passion internation conferences, and has since become the heart's cry of countless churches and ministries for their own communities. In what began as a humble, heart-broken prophecy from one man, the Body of Christ has found an anthem to declare its purpose: to be worshiping agents of compassion, justice and change.
When Aaron Boyd glimpsed a vision of God's love in that broken, oppressive place, he knew that singing about it was not enough. He had to do something more. In God of This City, he shares the biblical mandate for God's people to right the wrongs done to the voiceless everywhere. This is a challenge to the Church to live lives of worship marked by actions that will transform a world of cities longing for greater things.

God is using these young men and this band in mighty ways! They are passionate in their mission and take physical and spiritual risks to bring God's message into places that many of us would never dream of going. After visiting Thailand, God has worked through their music to create a movement that should encourage us all to look outside of our comfort zone and open our eyes and hearts to the reality of others.

Many of you have heard the song "God Of This City" by Bluetree and a lot of you have heard the powerful story behind the song. Yet this book goes way beyond that.

If you are looking:

* To be challenged in your Faith

*To find a way to sift through the Western World of Consumerism and Materialism

*Find your true calling in the Faith

*Trust God more then you ever have

then this book is for you..

Aaron Boyd breaks down the problem with our "easy-comfortable" life and calls us to search for something bigger and better.

We pray and cry out in our Church's for more and more. Spiritually we are making great strides in worship and prayer, but what are we doing in the Physical world? Are we willing to trust God and see some major change in our community. It starts with imperfect people striving to make the world better, it starts with us....

I've really been challenged and changed by this book...Pick up a copy for your Pastor, your parents, your youth leader, this is a relevant message for our Culture...

I recommend this book to everyone especially those angry w/God, He is the creator and power of the universe but for each angry soul asking "why". this is a great read. each of us have responibility in the world. I once heard, "that bad things happen when good men do nothing". Aaron brings this to light and challenges every reader to do his/her part, this book should be added to the ciriculum of every membership class in every church.
