Teaching Cross-Culturally: An Incarnational Model for Learning and TeachingTeaching Cross-Culturally: An Incarnational Model for Learning and Teaching

This book is designed to complement Sherwood Lingenfelter's highly succesful Ministering Cross Culturally. It takes similar insights and applies them specifically to an educational setting. It also guides readers with little understanding of cross-cultural challenges in ministry and helps them see how cultural sensitivity and effective teaching are inseperably linked. Chapters include discussions about how to uncover cultural biases, how to address intelligence and learning styles, and teaching for biblical transformation. It is ideal for the western-trained educator who plans to work in a non-western setting.

Missionaries, "tentmakers", and those who teach in an increasingly multicultural North America will find this book helpful.
     


 

 

 
Incarnational Ministry: Planting Churches in Band, Tribal, Peasant, and Urban SocietiesIncarnational Ministry: Planting Churches in Band, Tribal, Peasant, and Urban Societies

The authors study four types of societies of bands, tribes, peaseantry and urbanites. While urging planners not to use these general categories as simplistic pigeonholes. The authors show that identifying distinctive styles of social interaction can guide church planters towards openness in a community. Charts and study data help explain class structures and social characteristics. Particular attention is paid to city dwellers since much evangelism now targets this group. For each societal setting planners receive important information about moral norms and potential social problems to expect as they carry out their ministries.

Urban youth ministries tend to fall into three groups: traditional (jealously guarding the spiritual formation of their young people); liberal (focusing on personal growth); and activist (galvanizing youth around the social concerns surrounding them.) Nyack College Youth Ministry Professor, Fernando Arzola, proposes integrating all three. Learn to cultivate young believers who are spiritually rooted, emotionally mature, and responsive to the community!
     

 
Faith in the Market: Religion and the Rise of Urban Commercial  CultureFaith in the Market: Religion and the Rise of Urban Commercial Culture

Scholars have long assumed that industrialization and the growth of modern cities signaled a decline of religious practice among urban dwellers--that urban commercial culture weakened traditional religious ties by luring the faithful away from their devotional practice. Spanning many disciples, the essays in the volume challenge this notion ofthe "secular city" and examine how members of metropolitan houses of worship invented fresh expressions of religiousity by incorporating consumer goods, popular entertainment, advertising techniques, and marketing into their spiritual lives. Faith in the Market explores phenomena from Salvation Army "slum angels" to the "race movies" of the mid-twentieth century, from Catholic teens' modest dress crusades to Black Muslim artistis. The contributors--integrating gender, performance, and material culture studies into their analyses--reveal the many ways in which religious groups actually embrace commercial culture to establish an urban presence. Although the city streets may have proved inhospitable to some forms of religion, many others, including evangelicalism, Catholicism, and Judaism, assumed rich and complex forms as they developed in vital urban centers.

The volume begins with a previously unpublished essay by Conn on missions and theology.
