A realistic and hard-hitting look at the vast needs of the city and a jubilant celebration of how the gospel of Christ can, and is, meeting those needs, and healing the wounded. Matthew Recker, New York City church planter since 1984, pours out his burden for urban ministry, exhorting believers to hear the cries of the lost in metropolitan areas. Behold the City is a call to arms to the work of soulwinning. A plea for prayer for city dwellers living and lost. A personal testimony of God's protection and provision in the dark heart of the concrete jungle.
