How can the church respond to the divisions within society that leave many persons marginalized? This book refocuses our notions of what mission is and suggests how local churches can immerse themselves in other cultural contexts.

North American Christians have become concerned with justice and human rights struggles of the third-world poor, but such "globalization" has not made connections with the poor of the first-world society who are overwhelmingly rooted in the inner cities of the nation. Recinos examines the meaning of globalization as reflected in Biblical and specific social histories.
