This paper argues that Christians involved in urban mission could gain much from a consideration of the Sustainable Livelihoods Framework (SLF). In doing so, 1) it argues that Christian engagement in the world needs an adequate theory of development praxis, and that the SLF provides us with this; 2) it explores the SLF in some detail so that we gain some familiarity with it in order to 3) examine some of the core concepts within the framework by way of a theological appreciation; 4) it concludes with a brief reflection in the context of urban mission.
