Resurrection City: A Theology of Improvisation
By Peter Goodwin Heltzel (Eerdmans)

A unique and creative call toward prophetic Christianity, Resurrection City is written in pursuit of God’s shalom, “God’s justice being fully present in all dimensions of life.” Heltzel explores the relationship between black theology and living in pursuit of justice (taken from leaders like Sojourner Truth, Martin Luther King Jr. and Howard Thurman). Integrating the need for spiritual renewal and transformation, Heltzel reminds readers that “a politics of love demands a confession of sin.” He encourages a profound love, inclusive of shalom justice—a love that faces fears and embraces healing in order to better empathize and love others. May all Christ followers know the boundlessness of God’s omnipotent love as the basis of one’s sanctification. Such love has the power to mobilize justice that is capable of changing the world and the course of human history. —Mae Elise Cannon, from the March/April 2014 issue of Outreach magazine
