A Biblical Vision for the City

I was born and raised in the Bronx, New York City. Since August of 05 I’ve lived down in Orlando, Florida, in order to get my Master’s Degree in Christian Thought at Reformed Theological Seminary From the day I moved here to the day I graduated in May, the experience has overall been nothing short of a blessing. But, I must tell you, I truly miss home. There’s way too much sky here in Florida, not enough sun-blocking, cement towers (you may call them “buildings” 😛 ).

My dream is to eventually head back home and teach there. But how should Christians approach city life? Is Christianity compatible with the “city that never sleeps”? Well here are some wonderful articles written about a theology of the city by the pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, Tim Keller.

1) A New Kind of Urban Christian
2) Biblical Theology of the City
3) Christ and the City

And here are some great sermon on the same topic:

1. Should I Not Love That Great City? Should I Not Love That Great City?
2. The Meaning of the City The Meaning of the City
3. Love for the City Love for the City
