Announcing the To Transform a City Blog Tour! During January 10-14 we’re asking bloggers to review and discuss Eric Swanson’s and Sam Williams’ new book, To Transform a City: Whole Church, Whole Gospel, Whole City.
In the intro to the book Swanson and Williams cut to the chase with these lines:
There are now, scattered around the globe, more people living in cities than in the rural areas of the world. Most important, this is an irreversible trend. For the rest of human history, the earth’s population will be more urban than rural.3 We believe that this historic shift has huge implications for the mission of the church as we seek to transform our communities.
