Is there still promise in the metropolis? Can modern cities have lasting value? Drawing on a wide range of resources, including the writings of Paul, the Apocalypse, Greco-Roman literature, church history, theology, and socioeconomic theory, Dieter Georgi answers yes. Our cities can become more than human and ecological garbage dumps; they can aspire to be communities where people live in harmony with one another and their environment. In support of this lofty goal, Georgi unmasks economic and political theories and elements of Christian theology that have led to the demise of cities and then advocates a new praxis of urban theology, a concrete way of living together in the cities of today and tomorrow. With a foreword by Helmut Koester.

The late Dieter Georgi was Professor (Emeritus) for New Testament Studies at the Department of Protestant Theology at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universitšt, Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
