Críticas:

"An engaging book from an author who tops the charts when it comes to credibility. Ageless principles from an ancient story are lifted up for today's reality. Lupton looks for and finds a theology that touches the ground, even when the ground is messy. He writes as well as he thinks, and he thinks as well as he implements. His compelling candor and honesty work well in a world of ambiguities."--Robert Seiple, founder, Institute for Global Engagement, author of Ambassadors of Hope

"Bob Lupton is Nehemiah. This imaginative, authentic and narrative account of a faith-motivated visionary's calling to rebuild a city devastated by war and abandonment will inspire similar efforts in America's urban neighborhoods."--Randy White, National Coordinator for Urban Projects, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, and author of Journey to the Center of the City

"In Renewing the City Bob Lupton has given us a remarkable glimpse of the confusing realities, the irritating lessons and the crises of leadership that are often a part of urban development work. It's all interwoven with an imaginative, provocative and biblically faithful rendering of the story of Nehemiah. From the realities of regentrification to the competing models of economic planning, Bob's insights are full of uncompromising faith and deep wisdom. This is a must read for everyone who believes that God loves cities."--Stephen A. Hayner, Peachtree Professor of Evangelism, Columbia Theological Seminary

"Bob Lupton has captured the essence of Nehemiah's story in the rebuilding of Jerusalem. Bob has taken the biblical truths of Nehemiah and applied them to the terrible deterioration and disgrace facing America's inner cities. This book provides realistic hope through biblical Christian community development. Renewing the City is a must read for anyone doing urban work today."--Wayne L. Gordon, President, Christian Community Development Association

"Bob Lupton is the only person I know who could have written a masterful book on the ancient prophet Nehemiah that is at the same time a book on community development and urban renewal. . . . To Bob Lupton be thanks and to our cities be hope!"--From the foreword by Ray Bakke, Professor of Global Urban Studies, Northwest Graduate School, author of The Urban Christian

"I always thought Bob Lupton was one of the most innovative forces in dealing with city problems. In this book I learn he is simply following principles 2,500 years old. Creative, thoughtful and provocative."--Philip Yancey, author of Rumors of Another World

"Bob Lupton writes what he knows about. Fortunately for us he knows a great deal. He knows about the concreteness of needy folk in the city; he knows about the city as a system and the powerful who preside over it. He knows about compassion and mercy kept sober by issues of justice. He knows about faith that turns to bold energy and he knows about a biblical script through which to organize all of his learnings into a testimony of faith. "This book is a modern retelling of the narrative of Ezra-Nehemiah, a narrative in which Lupton himself is cast as a key character. The book lives precisely at the interface between ancient text and current urban transformation. Its powerful testimony will provide guidance and courage for those who read. And we finish the book grateful to Bob and Peggy for their large-hearted urban wisdom."--Walter Brueggemann, professor of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary

"The creative use of narrative, linking scripture to modern urban stories, makes Lupton's work stand out from others I have read recently or use in teaching on this topic. . . I warmly recommend this book, which is filled with useful insights but not with 'one-size-fits-all' answers."--David H. Greenlee, Mission Studies, 2007

In Renewing the City, community developer and urban activist Robert Lupton explores the Hebrew testament example of Nehemiah as a source of direction for contemporary Christian community development. Using both Nehemiah's story and modern day examples that reflect upon lessons learned from Nehemiah, Lupton presents a must read for anyone who is involved in urban work, whether it be faith-driven or otherwise.--Frank Mills, Borderlands Review, (frankamills.com), October 2008

"This book is a modern retelling of the narrative of Ezra-Nehemiah, a narrative in which Lupton himself is cast as a key character. The book lives precisely at the interface between ancient text and current urban transformation. Its powerful testimony will provide guidance and courage for those who read. And we finish the book grateful to Bob and Peggy for their large-hearted urban wisdom."--Walter Brueggemann, professor of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary
