The Word on the Street: Performing the Scriptures in the Urban Context

Cover
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 2000 - 192 Seiten
What happens when two seminary professors leave their classrooms and begin spending time among homeless people and teaching right on city streets? In this unique collection of essays and sermons, Stanley Saunders and Charles Campbell reflect on their encounters with homeless people in Atlanta and seek to discern the way of Jesus on the streets of the city. Along the way, they demonstrate the power of Scripture to shape the way we see the world and explore the significance of social location for exegesis, ethics, worship, and preaching.
