The Christian message of emancipatory koinonia has very concrete applications within the environmental totality of the cities of both the industrialized world and developing countries. In this book the author uses the critical framework of a contextual theology to present a cosmological instead of an anthropocentric attitude towards the city and all that lives within it.
