This book is a must-read for anyone concerned about the future of cities and that ought to be pretty much everyone, given that well over half the world s population now lives in cites, up from 29 per cent in 1950. In any event, Revelation makes it clear that if we don t live in one now, we shall, God willing. (Church Times, 27 March 2015)
