Dr. John Fuder is an expert in the field of Urban Ministry. He is a professor of Urban Studies at Moody Bible Institute Graduate School in Chicago Illinois; where he pours his heart into each student. The book is composed of twenty-nine chapters written by different authors who are running successful urban ministries in the Chicago land area. Each author has years of practical experience in their ministry. If you have a heart for the city and want practical urban ministry advice from those who have lived it, than I highly recommend this book. This book will challenge you to roll up your sleeves and become a part of what God is doing in the city of Chicago and around the world!

I highly recommend Doc Fuder's first book, Heart for the City

Jeremiah 29:7--'Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf; for in its welfare you will have welfare.'
