Voices from the Borderland brings urban theology into a transformative dialogue with the dynamic urban world of the 21st century. As a result of many years of intimate engagement with British urban experience the author suggests that urban theology should be a theology for progressive change. This book breaks new ground by linking together five models of urban theological reflection which have, to date, existed in self-enclosed 'camps' (Urban Liberation Theology, Urban Black Theology, Reformist Urban Theology, Globalisation Urban Theology and Post-religious Urban Theology). The author argues that a new chapter must be opened in urban theology which moves beyond current models towards a more fluid, inclusive and dynamic metropolitan theology. Book jacket.
