It can seem like all you ever hear these days is bad news. Yet in the midst of contentious political posturing and stories of communities in trouble are stories of love, reconciliation, and restoration. Through a variety of innovative programs and initiatives, and flying mostly under the national news radar, Christian business leaders are bringing hope to blighted urban communities in our greatest cities. A Disruptive Generosity shares their inspiring stories.

From Dallas to New York City, from London to Singapore, lives and communities are being changed through strategic stewardship. These stories will challenge marketplace Christians to find innovative ways to use their resources as God's hands and feet in a hurting world.
