In this revision of a long-enduring classic, Kraft (Deep Wounds, Deep Healing
) shows once again why he is the anthropologist par excellence of Christian mission and why his books appeal to Christians of both liberal and evangelical theological orientation. He draws upon faith experience and the social sciences to make pastors, preachers, missionaries, and religious educators aware of the mystery of human communication in the service of the God who calls all into communion. The question is: how to communicate with those of other cultures, so that the message is effectively transmitted and received? How do we recognize the gaps - of language, tradition, life experience - that separate us, and build bridges over them?
