We live in an urban age. For the first time in human history, most of the world’s people live in cities. It is thus vital, say Mark Gornik and Maria Liu Wong, for Christians to think constructively about how to live out their faith in an urban setting.

In Stay in the City Gornik and Liu Wong show and tell what is happening in the urban church. Writing from their experience living and working in New York City, they invite readers everywhere to join together in creating a more flourishing urban world for all.
