Dean Merrill, collaborating with Patrick Johnstone, recently published Serving God in Today’s Cities: Facing the Challenge of Urbanization. This book is a great introduction to our urban world and ministry today.
Three percent of the world’s population lived in cities in 1800. By 2100, 90% of the global population will live in cities. Most of this growth is happening in the Majority World.
And Dean Merrill notes that we are living in the first urban century with over 50% of the world’s population in the urban context.
In this episode of Strike the Match, Dean and I talk about this book and the urban world in which we live. Check out our conversation and share it with others.
