Bob Lupton. This man is a Christian in Atlanta whose mission is helping build communities in poor neighborhoods. A recent article in World Magazine gives an overview of his work. He wrote Theirs is the Kingdom: Celebrating the Gospel in Urban America. He just published a new book, Renewing the City: Reflections on Community Development and Urban Renewal. I think I may have borrowed the first book from Morgan several years ago and read it (my mind is going - it may have already left) and, if so, I was impressed. I haven't read the new book. My impression from the earlier book, from what I read in the World article, and from what Walter and Morgan tell me of their experiences, Christian urban redevelopment is not easy work.
