The author has been a part of history-in-the-making, and she pens her exclusive perspective throughout a quarter of a century of rapid change. In this case, God had nudged men and women who dreamt of a better world, to step into the circumstances of their times. The purpose of this book is encourage the reader to follow his or her heart’s nudge, but at the same time to seek God’s big picture; because it takes all of our strengths and passions to truly represent the heart of Jesus to a city.

It walks through the history of one city, but illustrates God’s heart for every city. It encourages each of us to seek our place, and to allow God to show us where it fits in His heart for our city.”
