About the Author:

Andrew Davey is currently Assistant Secretary (Community and Urban Affairs) for the Church of England's Board of Social Responsibility.

Review:

"Urban Christianity and Global Order is a superb contribution to the emerging discipline of urban theology! With keen insight Andrew Davey challenges the church to fresh thinking on the dynamics, impact, and meaning of global urbanization and urban globalization. This is a biblically sound and relevant tool for social analysis and theological engagement. A must read for all those concerned with the life and mission of the church in an urban world."
--Eldin Villafañe, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"Andrew Davey has written a timely, nay urgent, book. We need it yesterday. The church has been slow to look the global powers in the face and read the signs, even slower to think biblically and theologically, let alone missiologically, about the forces which are altering urban terrains and the lives of our people. Davey has done that and more, with a practical readability to boot."
--Bill Wylie Kellermann, Seminaries Consortium for Urban Pastoral Education -- Review
