The changing ethnic face of America will increasingly require evangelicals to minister to people of a variety of ethnic backgrounds, including African-American, Hispanics, Asians, and others. In this book, author and pastor David Anderson provides practical ideas to show how both new and existing churches can embrace greater cultural diversity and discover their unique rhythm. Anderson shares many stories from his experiences in planting Bridgeway Community Church, a successful multicultural church that has grown to about 1,500 people, half of whom are African-American, 30 percent are Caucasian, and about 15 percent are from racial and ethnic groups. This book provides transferable principles and practical ideas adaptable for churches of any size and setting.

Stroupe firmly grounds a liberal social viewpoint within the biblical and theological traditions of the church, and he calls us to hear God's claim on us in our place and in our time.

This collection of essays presents the theological, pedagogical, and disciplinary framework on which multicultural theological education is built. While many seminaries and divinity schools have expressed their commitment to create diverse communities of faculty and students, fewer schools have developed methods of learning and teaching that are appropriate for these communities. Written by faculty members at McCormick Theological Seminary, a school renowned for its commitment to diversity, these essays provide examples of new ways of learning and teaching that will help shape and sustain multicultural theological education.

David V. Esterline is Dean of Faculty, Vice President of Academic Affairs, and James G. K. McClure Professor of Theological Education at McCormick Theological Seminary, Chicago.

Ogbu U. Kalu is Henry Winters Luce Professor of World Christianity and Mission, McCormick Theological Seminary, Chicago.

Churches get ready! People from different cultures and races are not only moving to the same neighborhoods, they are also attending the same local churches. The need for pastors to be able to lead diverse congregations is growing. A call is being sounded for laity in such congregations to acquire greater skills to care for one another. This book analyzes the pastorate from a multicultural, multiracial perspective. The book presents the challenges and successes of pastoring different cultures and races, as well as barriers that impede growth and relationships among the laity. Each chapter includes questions for individual consideration or class discussion. For larger groups, a handy guide for leading a seminar on the multicultural, multiracial church is also provided. Both the practitioner who pastors integrated congregations and the congregation experiencing racial and cultural transition will find this book invaluable.

The last thing we want to do in cross-cultural ministry is to offend people in other cultures. Unfortunately, all too often and even though we don't mean it, our actions communicate superiority, paternalism, imperialism and arrogance. Our best intentions become unintentional insults. How can we minister in ways that are received as true Christlike service?

Cross-cultural specialist Duane Elmer gives Christians practical advice for serving other cultures with sensitivity and humility. With careful biblical exposition and keen cross-cultural awareness, he shows how our actions and attitudes often contradict and offend the local culture. He offers principles and guidance for avoiding misunderstandings and building relationships in ways that honor others. Here is culturally-savvy insight into how we can follow Jesus' steps to become global servants.

Whether you're going on your first short-term mission trip or ministering overseas for extended periods, this useful guide is essential reading for anyone who wants to serve effectively in international settings with grace and sensitivity.
