n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Contesting inner-city space : global trends, local exclusion/s and an alternative Christian spatial praxis

Volume 36, Issue 2_3
  • ISSN : 0256-9507

It indicates how such patterns often perpetuate multiple local exclusions contributing to de-humanising and de-humanised inner-city spaces. It then explores an alternative Christian spatial praxis considering ways in which communities of faith can engage issues of inner-city space, land and housing to facilitate possible prophetic alternatives to the dominant trends.
