Recovering From Racism: City Ministry in a "Post-Racial" America is a story about how Larry Lloyd, a privileged white Evangelical, grew to love his city, particularly the city that so many don t want to see. A pioneer in urban Ministry, Lloyd has helped countless others love the city, too. This book is about his story and how that story can inform each of us as we seek the well-being of the city to which God has called us. But first we have to see the city as God sees it. We have to look at our own heart and motivations for engaging the city, particularly as we engage neighborhoods that are in downward spirals. Paternalism, racism, and white privilege can blind us if we are not careful and our engagement can quickly turn to cynicism and frustration. But this book is not just for urban warriors. It s for each of us who dare to embrace the city as God s playground. It s for each of us who seek meaningful engagement in the middle of society s toughest issues. It s for each of us who want to be agents of God s grace and justice in our own city.
