13 Things That Don't Make Sense is a non-fiction book by the British writer Michael Brooks, published in both the UK and the US during 2008. It became a best-selling paperback in 2010. The British subtitle is "The Most Intriguing Scientific Mysteries of Our Time" while the American is "The Most Baffling.

The 21st century will go down in history as the century of global urbanization. How does God feel about the city, and how should we respond to what is being considered one of the four major challenges of our time? In this fresh approach to urban missions, Brad Stanley shares his experience and God-given insight into the value of the city and its inhabitants, and the role that the church should play in reaching cities worldwide for Christ.

Reading this book has been very thought provoking and insightful. I have been involved in Missions my entire life. This book has changed my thinking of how Missions needs to be done now in our changing world where urbanization is increasing at a rapid pace. The statistics, the stories, and the concepts in this book make a great case for the book's premise that cities are God's gift to the church. This book has helped me to love the city where I have lived most of my life even more.

Over the past five years I have spent a lot of time reading Urban Missions books. "Finding God in the City" is so much more than just a Urban Missions book. I truly believe it is a manifesto for the next wave of missions. There are men today preaching that the next great missions movement is on the brink. They tell us it will be happening in spheres that influence cultures and society. These Seven Spheres (Education, Government, Business, Family, Church, Arts & entertainment, media) all have made their homes inside of a urban environment. The city has became the center, the resting place of influence. What author Brad Stanley so brilliantly did in this book, was marry to ideas of Urban Missions. The Idea the first embraces the city as a god thing and gift from God. The other idea of the city being the great opportunity to reach unreachable people. The urgency of the hour is upon us as the modern day Body of Christ. The gift of Urbanization is at our door step. I found this book to be the road map to getting involved into what God is doing on the earth through cities in the developed and developing world. If you have heart to see culture influenced and nations transformed I urge you to dig into this manifesto to our generation!

This book was a guiding light during my final year of school studying for my thesis in Intercultural Urban Ministry in Oakland, CA. I was inundated reading incredible works by urban legends like John Perkins and Ray Bakke, but in the current climate of urbanization most of these texts were outdated. Although they provided deep insight and great spiritual depth from seasoned experiences I longed for someone to address the incredible diversity of the city today as it pertains to world missions. Today the world lives within the cities unlike ever before. The strategic frontiers that were once reserved for the pioneering missionaries and bible translators are now the on our doorstep in the context of the city. Brad Stanley does a superb job of bringing us up-to-date and providing a forecast for what is to come from a practical, theological, and missional perspective.

Having lived in two different cities in the United States over the past three years (New Orleans and Chicago), I can say that I've found diversity and rapid urban population growth to be two things that the church is scared of. And to a degree that makes sense, because those two things are a BIG DEAL and require a lot of prayer, a lot of action, and a lot of sacrifice. That's where Brad Stanley steps in with this incredible book and gives practical, Biblical wisdom about the reality of global urbanization, and how and why the church should respond to this phenomenon. The information contained within this book is incredibly enlightening and encouraging, as it presents the great importance (and seriousness) of urbanization while simultaneously pointing out how urbanization is NOT a curse, but a gift, and how we can most effectively utilize this gift that God has given us. Brad Stanley continually emphasizes how the cities are God's idea, not a mistake or something that God was hoping wouldn't happen...and I think that's something that modern Christians (perhaps especially Christians from rural areas, like myself) need to know.

Brad Stanley has encouraged me to embrace the city, not run from it, reminding me that God wants us to be His agents of change, love, and hope within these seemingly hopeless locations. This book is an incredible reminder of God's love and His never ending pursuit of relationship with us, His most valued creation. I truly believe that if Christians want to be effective in urban ministry, then this book should be at the top of their lists to read, to study, and to think about all the time. The ideas presented within this book can and will change your opinions of the city and encourage you to obey God no matter what He may call you to, as He continually works toward redeeming the purpose of the city.
I love Mercedes
