In this finely crafted book the author lays solid theoretical foundations for analyzing many of the intercultural misunderstandings that emerge in the everyday lives of those in global ministries. By careful analysis of case studies the author helps us apply these insights to your ministries, and guides us to biblically based and culturally sensitive responses to the difficult issues raised by cultural differences.
Revised edition gives readable case studies, more material on conflict resolution and specific applications on how to transform culture from the mission field.
