As a Christian and urbanist I LOVED this book Jacobsen clearly articulates thoughts that have been in my head for years We know that the Bible should inform our view of all aspects of life but there are not many resources that provide a biblical view of how we build our cities Cities in both the physical and social sense matter to God and should matter to believers as well There is something about the suburbs that stifles community and Jacobsen offers thoughtful ways that believers can honor God through the spaces where we live work and play He acknowledges that sharing the gospel not creating perfect cities is the mission of the church but it s much easier to share the gospel and engage our communities in certain settings than others A well designed city is a powerful platform for the gospel but it doesn t receive much attention from the church I hope to pass this along to a couple pastors I know but I think it would benefit all Christians
